Secure Computing Introduces Secure Web Reporter for Complete, Real-Time Viewing of Web Activity, Security, Performance and Compliance

Web Reporter Provides Real-Time Web Monitoring; Improves Reporting Performance and Scalability

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - August 4, 2008) - Secure Computing Corporation (NASDAQ: SCUR), a leading enterprise gateway security company, today announced the availability of Secure Web Reporter, a highly scalable reporting solution that provides instantaneous views of important Web activity, focusing on security, compliance monitoring and performance assessment. Built for maximizing the value of information available in both Secure Web (formerly known as Webwasher®) appliances and Secure Web SmartFilter, Secure Web Reporter gives organizations the tools they need to understand today's Web traffic quickly and easily. Available in both premium and basic versions, Secure Web Reporter enables organizations to easily identify trends, investigate potential problems, analyze security threats, and use this information to modify and enforce their security policies.

Secure Computing's Secure Web Reporter combines real-time views of an enterprise's Web events and activities with powerful off-line processing that scales to quickly process volumes of data and meet large enterprise reporting demands. Web Reporter displays a variety of useful and timely information, ranging from desktops likely infected with spyware to data about Web surfing activity, malware blocked at the gateway, downloading activity and more.

The Premium version of Secure Web Reporter offers customers additional reporting capabilities and functionality, including:

--  Delegated Reporting: Enables enterprises to reduce the burden on IT
    resources by distributing reporting responsibilities across the
    organization.  Customers can allow or restrict access to specific data,
    enabling various IT administrators and department managers to share
    reporting responsibilities.
    
--  Advanced Reporting:  Powerful advanced reporting capabilities enable
    organizations to configure highly detailed, custom reports to help identify
    trends and issues.  Additionally, IT administrators can combine multiple
    queries into a single report or dashboard view, providing detailed and
    specific reporting results.
    

"While the Web is the backbone of many organizations, it can also be the source of productivity drains, liability risks, bandwidth consumption, and malware intrusion. Organizations need scalable, comprehensive reporting to understand their Web traffic and the threats this traffic presents," said David Macey, vice president and general manager of Web Gateway for Secure Computing. "Secure Computing's Secure Web Reporter redefines the scalability, ease, flexibility and granularity of detail customers can obtain in enterprise Web reporting."

Pricing and Availability

Available now, Secure Computing Secure Web Reporter Premium is sold as a subscription. It offers more features and functionality than the basic Secure Web Reporter version, due to be released later this month.
