Ingrian Networks Introduces EdgeSecure Designed to Deliver Distributed Encryption Capabilities

New Ingrian Appliance Brings Cost-Effective Encryption to Branch Locations Enabling Retail Chain Stores and Bank Branches to Easily Encrypt Credit Card Transactions at the Point of Capture

REDWOOD CITY, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 25, 2006 -- Ingrian® Networks, Inc., the leading provider of data privacy solutions, today announced the Ingrian EdgeSecure™ Platform. EdgeSecure offers the industry's most cost effective and secure hardware-based encryption solution for retailers and banks that need to achieve Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance. Delivering encryption capabilities beyond the data center, EdgeSecure is ideal for retail and branch office environments as it can be extended to thousands of locations while being centrally managed by one DataSecure appliance -- offering simplified management and robust security features.

"As retailers and banks look for ways to combat the threat of devastating data thefts and address increasingly stringent compliance mandates like the PCI standard, many are looking into ways to leverage data encryption," said Karim Toubba, vice president of product management and corporate strategy for Ingrian Networks. "Ingrian's EdgeSecure appliance offers a simplified model for information protection across thousands of distributed locations and has capabilities for granular encryption of sensitive data for retailers and banks -- whether it is credit cards, social security numbers, or other sensitive data."

By combining granular encryption capabilities at the branch location with a centralized management model, Ingrian EdgeSecure enables retailers and banks to effectively address a range of critical security gaps, with unparalleled ease and cost effectiveness. With this solution administrators can monitor, troubleshoot, and maintain individual EdgeSecure appliances from the data center. Key management, policy management, logging, reporting, and software upgrades can be handled from a central location via the Ingrian Enterprise Manager™.

The Ingrian EdgeSecure appliance offers several advantages including:

--  Centralized Management. The Ingrian Enterprise Manager is designed to
    manage thousands of EdgeSecure appliances across a wide range of
    geographically distributed environments. Key management, policy management,
    logging, reporting, and even software upgrades can be driven from one
    central location at the data center.
--  Robust security. Addresses a broad range of threats with capabilities
    robust field- or column-level encryption, secure policy and key management,
    sophisticated administration, segregation of duties, strong AAA support,
    and more.
--  Scalability and reliability. Offloads processing-intensive
    cryptographic functions from retail and bank branch applications and
    delivers high reliability, featuring capabilities for failover and disaster
--  Flexible integration. Can be integrated into existing distributed and
