New WebSpy Software Releases

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - November 25, 2008) - WebSpy, a global vendor of internet monitoring, analysis and reporting software that provides a transparent view over organizations' Internet, email and network usage, today announced the new version release of the award winning Vantage product range, Vantage 2.1, the release of the brand new software solution, Vantage Ultimate, and launch of redesigned www.webspy.com.

Vantage 2.1 enables organizations to monitor not only Internet usage and web browsing behavior, but also email usage, event logs, routers, incoming visitor traffic, firewalls, antivirus and spam applications. Vantage 2.1 is able to analyze over 200 types of log files from different vendors while the majority of competing log file analyzers are hard-coded to analyze a particular log file type.

The comprehensive information provided by Vantage 2.1 allows organizations to achieve numerous business benefits, including maximizing employee productivity, identifying Internet and email misuse, identifying and resolving network problems, preserving bandwidth and minimizing litigation risks.

WebSpy COO Lagis Zavros said, "Thanks to Vantage 2.1's innovative excellence our clients will reap the rewards of using one application to achieve all their reporting, spending less on software maintenance, hardware and administration." Zavros does not consider the current economic downturn a threat and concluded, "We expect high sales for Vantage 2.1 as the solution is specifically designed to cut costs, increase productivity and automate workflows."

Vantage Ultimate is WebSpy's latest software solution that incorporates all Vantage 2.1 features as well as being able to satisfy the surging organizational need of distributing information -- securely and responsibly.

Vantage Ultimate ascertains a company's organizational structure and enables secure, web-based access to reports at any chosen level to ensure that the protection of resources is not just the responsibility of the security team, but potentially the entire organization. Its on-demand capabilities can enable even individual employees to conduct their own ad-hoc analysis to view their productive and non-productive activity, thus helping to drive responsible behavior.

Most competing log analysis solutions, trying to address the same issues, lack any protection of employee privacy. They provide open or shut access, meaning that anyone with access to their solution can view anyone else's activity. Vantage Ultimate is designed to protect individual's privacy rights by only allowing authorized users to see the actual employee identity.

Zavros commented, "The beta version of Vantage Ultimate was very well received and the interest in the software from organizations around the world has been astonishing. We are seeing a trend where organizations are recognizing that issues relating to inside threats need a two pronged attack -- protection of their business through reliable security systems and education of the workforce to drive responsible behavior."

In addition to innovative product releases, WebSpy itself has undergone a recent transformation after redesigning both www.webspy.com and the WebSpy logo.
