Victrex Locks Down Sensitive Data With Kazeon

World's Leading Manufacturer of VICTREX® PEEK Polymer Chooses Kazeon to Continuously Scan Tens of TBs of Data for Proactive Information Security and eDiscovery

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - August 4, 2008) - Kazeon Systems, Inc., a leading provider of intelligent eDiscovery solutions, today announced that Victrex PLC, an innovative leading manufacturer of high performance materials, has chosen Kazeon's Information Server product to provide information security, risk assessment and eDiscovery capabilities.

As one of the top companies in the high performance materials market, Victrex strives to develop new applications through product and technology innovation. Victrex takes proactive measures to secure information and prevent intellectual property from leaving the organization. The Kazeon Information Server platform scans tens of TBs of data held in Victrex's global network of regional data centers and on more than 500 desktops and laptops.

Through Kazeon, Victrex can quickly identify business critical and sensitive data and take corrective measures to secure that data by analyzing for trends and moving, locking, deleting or quarantining data for further review. The Kazeon Information Server discovers sensitive information contained in emails and files regardless of their physical or logical location. It also indexes & classifies email and file metadata while providing a comprehensive set of rules that extract common, confidential patterns. In addition, key words and phrases contained in a document (e.g. "company confidential," "financial statement") can be accurately identified and assigned a risk ranking while enabling policies to prevent data loss.

"Victrex's market is getting more competitive everyday and our intellectual property and business intelligence have to be protected. Kazeon allows us to search and identify which documents require the highest levels of security and then act on them anywhere across our enterprise," said John Cafferty, Global ICT Manager at Victrex. "The security and risk assessment, coupled with the ability to build out a comprehensive eDiscovery process, has made Kazeon an extremely valuable tool. We also leverage the de-duplication capabilities of the product to identify and remove unnecessary copies located across multiple locations while ensuring the integrity of master copies of key documents. This gives us the added benefit of reduced storage requirements and associated costs."

"Victrex is one of the most respected high performance material companies in the world and Kazeon is honored to be chosen by them," said Sudhakar Muddu, President and CEO at Kazeon. "Electronic data has to be controlled, and to do that companies need the ability to search, index, identify, classify and then take security actions on that data. Kazeon provides this unique functionality in a single product at a faster performance and at a much smaller cost than any other vendor, and customers such as Victrex are proving the advantages of Kazeon daily in some of the largest networks worldwide."

Beyond information security features, Victrex is planning to expand their use of Kazeon to include proactive and reactive eDiscovery. Kazeon provides the industry's first product to integrate the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) stages of identification, collection, preservation, processing and analysis into a single enterprise solution for companies seeking to create a defensible and repeatable eDiscovery process that is complete, accurate and reliable.

The Kazeon Information Access & Management Platform is based on a high-performance, massively scalable architecture, designed to address an organization's most demanding environments. This architecture has enabled Kazeon to provide the capability to process more than a billion documents within individual customer deployments, as well as provide high performing, scaled-out solutions for time-sensitive projects at customer sites.
