Georgia SoftWorks (GSW) is a privately held software development company. The company creates data and communications systems and telecommunications applications. GSW offers an SSH/Telnet Server for Microsoft Windows. Reliability and pioneering features targeted for industrial applications were the primary factors that lead to its acceptance. GSW also supplied the first SSH Server to provide Digital Certificate Authentication with an Internet Information Server-like certificate to user account mapping.
Established in 1991, Georgia SoftWorks  started as a custom software development company specializing in data communications and telecommunications applications. The company needed reliable Telnet connectivity on Windows NT with features such as: correctly displayed characters, proper function key operation and alt-key operation. At the time, Telnet was available on Unix but not frequently utilized on Windows in commercial environments. Georgia SoftWorks developed the GSW Telnet Server for Windows. It named the foundation the "Universal Terminal Server". It was designed so that different protocols could be installed as requirements determined. They added features such as mouse operation, file transfers and more. After successful in-house use, UTS was commercialized. Georgia SoftWorks pioneered major features such as Logon Scripts, which turned into global, per user, per IP Address and Certificate Based Logon Scripts. Other features included client device failure detection, Graceful Termination, Session Saver, Automatic Logon, Session Monitoring, Shadowing and Team Services technology.
