Voltage Delivers New Version of Industry's Fastest-Growing Enterprise Email Encryption Solution

Voltage SecureMail Adds Vital "Business In-Depth" Features That Further Push the Envelope in Supporting the Needs of Global Enterprises

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - November 13, 2007) - Voltage Security, Inc. (www.voltage.com), a global leader in information encryption, today unveiled the latest version of Voltage SecureMail™, with important business in-depth features that support the business needs of large global enterprises and their divisions, groups and call centers. The new version enables organizations to manage hundreds of corporate brands, multiple tenants and all major European languages seamlessly, without incremental cost using virtualized configurations.

The fastest-growing secure email solution, Voltage SecureMail surpasses others in enterprise customer acquisition, deployment size, and -- further still with this release -- enterprise depth. For these reasons as well as ease of use and a full feature set, Voltage SecureMail is now positioned in the visionary quadrant, ahead of long-standing email encryption vendors, in the newly released Gartner Magic Quadrant for E-Mail Encryption, 2007. And this new version of Voltage SecureMail extends an organization's ability to communicate through extensive branding with centralized management, enterprise architecture enhancements, and support for over 20 European languages.

Based on the breakthrough cryptographic innovation known as Voltage Identity-Based Encryption™ (IBE), Voltage raises the bar even further with each new release, by combining extreme usability, manageability and scalability with deeper enterprise features, capabilities and benefits. The company enables organizations to effectively manage risk and act responsibly as trusted custodians of information, while dramatically lowering costs, and protecting revenues and the integrity of primary and secondary organizational brands.

Voltage SecureMail is a horizontal solution that appeals to all vertical business markets. For instance:

--  Financial services institutions: One of the largest U.S.-based banks
    needed to support several hundred brands for one division alone, including
    support for multiple languages simultaneously. Another large financial
    reporting organization needed to support hundreds of brands and an average
    4.5 million statements delivered per month in just one of its divisions.
    
--  Healthcare organizations: One of the largest U.S. healthcare providers
    needed to comply with HIPAA privacy and security requirements while
    efficiently servicing member benefits requests, and facilitating references
    and lab results transmissions as well as referrals hospital-to-hospital.
    Voltage SecureMail enables this mutli-dimensional usage from a centrally
    managed system, across multi-lingual call-centers and from diverse and
    individually branded business units (including both for profit and non-
    profit organizations).
    
--  Manufacturing organizations: A large manufacturing organization needed
    to protect supply chain integrity and preserve the secrecy of discount
    levels, all while responding immediately in an always-connected world.
    
--  Government organizations: Government agencies large and local alike
    are embracing email communications, but must protect citizen's private
    information. State department health agencies and county governments
    utilize Voltage SecureMail to protect confidential communications to
    citizens and with other agencies, while also catering to the needs of
    distinct sub-agencies and departments.
    

Chief information security officers, directors, managers and administrators, as well as corporate executives and chief marketing officers, will appreciate the new Voltage SecureMail which enables virtualized configurations for:

--  Improved multi-branding and multi-tenant support, even further
    leapfrogging competitors by enabling enterprises that share the same
    infrastructure to serve literally hundreds of brands for diverse groups,
    divisions and business units, while centralizing policies and management.
    
--  Comprehensive European language support, ensuring unrivaled ease of
    use and support, and surpassing competitive offerings that largely
    translate only basic transaction screens and overlook help and error screen
    pages critical to user experience.
    
--  Enriched multi-datacenter architecture designed for the largest
    enterprises, as well as small and mid-size businesses, allowing them to
    easily scale based on their needs, and eliminating the requirements by
    competitors to employ expensive and difficult-to-manage back-end SANs and
    complex operational processes.
    
--  Enhanced Brand Management, enabling easier collaboration and creation
    of an improved end-user "experience" while eliminating sparse, difficult
    and frustrating brand creation processes by others, all too often requiring
    add-on professional services costs as well. In contrast, Voltage enables
    organizations to strengthen and reinforce their brands (without complicated
    customization steps) through email.
    
--  Anti-Phishing for the Voltage Zero Download Messenger (ZDM), a unique-
    to-Voltage feature that is used to thwart the threat of phishing through
    the use of image recognition, enabling businesses to communicate
    electronically with customers efficiently and effectively while ensuring
    legitimate senders and messages are recognized as "safe."
    
--  Superior central reporting that adds usage monitoring, aggregate
    reports and more, further lowering administrative overhead and supporting
    critical regulatory compliance objectives (i.e. HIPAA, GLBA, PCI, Sarbanes-
    Oxley, more).
    
--  Additional enhancements, such as HTML formatting to enable rich
    content for zero download messenger, increased flexibility in user-facing
    hostnames, and numerous refined usability enhancements.
    

"Voltage SecureMail raises email encryption to a business level," said Wasim Ahmad, vice president of Marketing at Voltage Security. "Too often, secure enterprise email product discussions boil down to superficial feature-and-function checklists. Yet encrypted email is actually core to our customer's business and brand image. The new version of Voltage SecureMail gives our customers a single, secure platform to support their real-world environments, which most often consist of multiple departments, business units and product brands."

Voltage SecureMail marks a turning point for the international email encryption market. Many early email encryption programs were complex, technically focused products that didn't scale. In stark contrast, Voltage SecureMail offers next-generation cryptography for "encryption that just works." Centralized management capabilities ensure that Voltage SecureMail grows with a business -- as new corporate brands are launched, repositioned, acquired or spun off around the world. Also, a multi-tenant capability allows multiple departments or even multiple organizations to share the same communications infrastructure, and enables swift support for new entities acquired through M&A activities.

"SecureMail Version 3.1 is easy to use and allows us to represent our organization's different divisions with a unique look and feel that really makes us stand out, all while keeping our correspondence secure," said Thomas Dupont, senior technician at VNA Care Network and Hospice, which supports mobile health workers across all of Massachusetts as well as over a dozen staffed locations.

The new release offers the powerful capacity to create multiple brand interfaces per tenant, a necessity for large organization that needs to manage communications across dozens -- if not hundreds -- of product and corporate brands. It also offers comprehensive support for European languages, delivering a scalable platform for enterprises that need to quickly extend their brand and communications across international borders, or when supporting multi-lingual support centers.

"Security is critical to government organizations' stewardship of citizen data, and Voltage enables us to easily and securely communicate with citizens and between agencies," said Jason Parks, information systems analyst, Butte County, which supports secure messaging for the California County. "Usability of the system has always been a key benefit of Voltage SecureMail, but the depth of features can't be understated; they help us achieve our mission of providing quality service with dignity, integrity and respect."

Voltage SecureMail is also available as a managed service through the Voltage Security Network (VSN), a Security-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering designed for enterprise business partners to gain on-demand immediate email encryption capability that is fully managed and low cost.

Pricing & Availability:

Voltage SecureMail is available today, and includes Voltage SecureMail Gateway and Voltage Key Management Server. Pricing starts at $10,000 for single data center deployments.
