St. Bernard's iPrism Wins Technology & Learning Award of Excellence

Web Filter Appliance Honored as One of the Best Education Offerings of the Past Year

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - November 5, 2009) - St. Bernard Software, Inc. (OTCBB: SBSW), a leader in Web security appliances, today announced that its iPrism Web Filter appliance was awarded the prestigious "Award of Excellence" by Technology & Learning Magazine. This recognition further reinforces St. Bernard's commitment to delivering superior security, performance and value across all educational institutions.

The Technology & Learning "Award of Excellence" is a 27-year-old recognition program that honors software, hardware, network, and web products that break new ground in some significant way, as well as those that prove to demonstrate superiority over similar solutions in the education market. This year, a panel of more than 30 educators, who tested more than 100 entries across the country, chose the winners.

"We are extremely pleased that the iPrism Web Filter received such high accolades from Technology & Learning Magazine, one of the most respected publications in the education industry," said Steve Yin, executive vice president of sales, marketing and services at St. Bernard. "Educational institutions need dependable Web filtering solutions to protect their networks, comply with federal regulations and efficiently manage bandwidth to ensure productivity. The iPrism appliances are not only feature-rich solutions that schools can rely on to block inappropriate online material and meet CIPA compliance requirements, but they are also proven to deliver the lowest Total Cost of Ownership in the industry, which is extremely attractive to any educational institution."

"This year's awards have grown to include new hardware and network categories," says Kevin Hogan, editorial director for NewBay Media's Tech & Learning Group. "Our judges, which include stalwarts such as our resident expert Joe Huber and the staff of Philadelphia's Science Leadership Academy, put dozens of entries through their paces. To come out with their seal of approval is a testament to the product."

A market leader in the web filtering industry since 2001, St. Bernard's award-winning iPrism Web filter protects organizations from security, regulatory, productivity and network performance risks that can result from inappropriate use of Web, IM and P2P. Delivering exceptional security, performance and the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) in the industry, the iPrism Web filter is the preferred solution for addressing the Web filtering needs of the mid-market enterprise.
