ssh is not native to windows and you would need 3rd party tools for that
Like Seth Simmons stated you will have to install third party tool.....

Keep in mind that SSH is completely interoperable between different platforms. For example, you could connect to a SSH server on a Cisco router from a Windows client, you could connect to a Linux server from a Cisco router, and you could connect to a Windows 2008 Server from a Linux client.

The only possible compatibility issue is that there are two versions of SSH, SSH version 1 and SSH version 2. You should make sure that the server and client support the same versions so that you know which version you are using when you connect. Usually, this version can be negotiated.

While none of the Windows operating systems come with a SSH Server or Client, they are very easy to install.
