Sandvine Is Being Recognized as a Great Place to Work®

WATERLOO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 28, 2008) - Sandvine (TSX:SVC)(AIM:SAND) is being recognized as one of this year's 50 Best Workplaces in Canada. This list, and related stories, will appear in a special national report on Monday, April 28th, 2008 in the Globe and Mail.

Since its inception in 2001, Sandvine has been committed to creating and maintaining a great workplace. Sandvine was founded on the principle that in this world we all have to work, so we might as well work for a company that is a fun place. In a recent survey, 93% said Sandvine is a great place to work! The Sandvine team thrives in a work hard/play hard environment where they enjoy flexible work schedules, cutting edge technology, competitive compensation and benefits including stock options, unique opportunities to develop their careers locally and globally, ongoing support for continuing education and professional development, etc. etc. Every day, the Sandvine team strives to live all eight tenets of "The Sandvine Way" and has fun doing it!

"It is with great pride that Sandvine accepts this recognition for the second consecutive year. The success of Sandvine is truly a team effort representing the best and the brightest of Canada's technology community," said Dave Caputo, Sandvine's President and CEO. "I have always believed that it hardly feels like work when you're working with friends, and Sandvine is a growing group of friends who work hard and play hard to improve the Internet experience for millions of users."

This list of "Best Workplaces in Canada" is compiled by Great Place to Work® Institute Canada. The competition process is based on two criteria: two-thirds of the total score comes from a 57-statement survey completed by a random selection of employees, along with their open-ended comments about their organization; the remaining one-third of the score comes from an in-depth review of the organization's culture, including an evaluation of HR policies and procedures. This offers a rigorous representation of the organization from an employee perspective, and an overall portrait of the workplace culture. Together, they provide crucial data relative to the five trust-building dimensions of a Great Place to Work®: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.

More than 24,000 employees participated in the 2008 "Best Workplaces in Canada" survey.
