StillSecure Offers Vernier Networks' Customers Dollar-for-Dollar Competitive Upgrade on NAC

Competitive Upgrade Program Available to All NAC Customers Seeking a Stable NAC Vendor

SUPERIOR, CO--(Marketwire - January 14, 2008) - StillSecure®, provider of secure network infrastructure software, today announced a Competitive Upgrade program for NAC users that allows customers using products from Vernier Networks and others to easily migrate to StillSecure Safe Access®. The program offers a dollar-for-dollar trade-in up to $100,000 for previously purchased NAC software. Participating companies receive credit for every dollar spent on their current NAC solution, which is automatically applied to their purchase of the Safe Access NAC solution.

StillSecure was one of the first entrants into the NAC market, with an initial Safe Access ship date of April 2004. StillSecure is launching the upgrade program in an effort to illustrate the benefits of using a mature, scalable NAC product, and to alleviate customer concerns regarding their NAC vendors' commitment to the market. The upgrade program will be offered through March 31, 2008. Additional terms and conditions apply and are available at www.stillsecure.com/upgrade.

"Many of the vendors who jumped on the NAC gold rush bandwagon are now leaving their customers high and dry. With this campaign we're reaching out to the market to show them that there are tried and true products that meet customer requirements for an easy-to-implement, easy-to-use NAC solution," said Alan Shimel, Chief Strategy Officer at StillSecure. "This program takes the risk out of upgrading to Safe Access. Show us your P.O. and we'll give you dollar-for-dollar credit so that you can leverage your existing investment in NAC."

For those interested in a hands-on look at Safe Access, users can download Safe Access Lite, a free version of the industry's #1 award-winning NAC solution that was launched in September 2007 (http://www.stillsecure.com/news_events/prdetails.php?id=404). Safe Access Lite is a non-disruptive, easy-to-install, monitor-only NAC product that tests up to 250 endpoints. It gives users insight into Safe Access' flexible testing and enforcement methods, deep endpoint coverage, and intuitive GUI, so that they're more comfortable upgrading the full commercial version.
