OpenSSH has had a few vulnerabilities in the past but it is extremely
good from a security standpoint, the reason it's had a few vulns is that
it is commonly audited code (everyone wants to find an OpenSSH bug).
Being one of the most widely used FOSS projects gives it this advantage,
imo, being so widely audited means the code has to hold up to intense
scrutiny. This is something the OpenSSH/BSD guys have stood up to time
and time again producing good quality code, at least in regards to
security. I personally wouldn't look past it for a secure shell

Security aside it's also a very good project with massive amounts of
documentation on-line which means you can effectively manage it.
