Austin, TX {June 26, 2006} – Pragma Systems, a leading provider of enterprise class remote access and security software for Microsoft Windows, becomes a member of Symbol Technologies’ PartnerSelect Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Partner Program.

Pragma is a leader in the SecureShell (SSH) market for Windows servers and clients.

With PocketVT, customers can now deploy their supply chain, distribution, order processing and warehouse management solution over secure SSH protocol greatly enhancing enterprise security. “Pragma’s solution includes both SSH and Telnet," says Andrew Tull, VP of Sales and Marketing at Pragma Systems. “This allows our customers a gradual migration path to switch over from telnet to the more secure SSH."
