Secure Passage Grows Staff 50 Percent in 2008

Market Demand for Flagship FireMon Solution Calls for More Staff, Larger Corporate Office

KANSAS CITY, MO--(Marketwire - November 19, 2008) - Secure Passage, the leading provider of Security Analysis and Compliance solutions for network devices including firewalls, switches and routers, today announced that it is relocating to new corporate headquarters in Overland Park, Kansas. The move is being made in response to accelerated growth and increased demand for its flagship FireMon solution.

"The relocation of our office is the culmination of an exciting year for us. Market demand has led us to expand in all areas including engineering, sales, customer service, marketing and support," said Secure Passage Chief Operating Officer Rob Bykowski. "Our new location was selected to accommodate our plans for 2009 and beyond."

In 2008, Vice President of Worldwide Sales Alin Srivastava was among the security industry veterans who joined Secure Passage's growing team. Srivastava and other newly hired employees said they were attracted by Secure Passage's unique ability to enable customers to dramatically reduce the complexity, cost and time associated with managing and monitoring network changes and configurations while enabling organizations to achieve audit and compliance goals.

"Our growth in 2008 exceeded expectations. Fueled by demands for FireMon, our Security Analysis and Compliance solution, we deliver on our promise to reduce configuration complexity and save time and money for our customers," said Srivastava. "We see tremendous opportunities for Secure Passage and look forward to continued expansion in 2009."

In December, Secure Passage will relocate its global headquarters from 300 Wyandotte Street, Suite 440, Kansas City, MO 64105, to 8400 W. 110th St., Suite 440, Overland Park, KS 66210.
