MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - November 12, 2007) - Kazeon Systems, Inc., a leading provider of intelligent eDiscovery solutions, today announced it has won the "Best Innovation Award, Small Company" category of the Information Security Decisions Best in Show Awards.

This year's Information Security Decisions Excellence Awards recognized outstanding products featured at the recent Information Security Decisions conference in Chicago. Nominations were reviewed by a team of judges, which included Burton Group Security and Risk Management Strategies analysts, the editors of TechTarget's Security Media Group and security professionals attending Information Security Decisions.

Kazeon was awarded the "Best Innovation Award, Small Company" for its Kazeon Information Server product line. The Best Innovation Award recognizes products that take an interesting approach to solving a common security challenge. Nominees were judged on:

--  Features of the technology
--  Innovations in problem solving

For information security & privacy and data loss prevention, the Kazeon Information Server discovers sensitive, non-public or private information contained in emails and files regardless of physical or logical location. Kazeon not only classifies email and file metadata, but also provides a comprehensive set of rules that extract common, confidential patterns such as phone numbers, social security numbers and credit card numbers. In addition, key words and phrases contained in a document (e.g. "company confidential," "financial statement") can be accurately identified and automated policies enable the prevention of data loss.

The Kazeon Information Server is the industry's first product to integrate the eDiscovery functions of identification, collection, preservation, processing and analysis of electronically stored information, which are the fundamental foundations for eDiscovery. Kazeon is also the first company to deliver intelligent eDiscovery solutions in response to litigation, information security and privacy, corporate investigations and regulatory compliance by using an Information Access technology platform.
