Voltage Security Empowers Partners With Rapid Revenue Opportunities From Information Encryption Solutions

World Class Solutions Providers Profit From Global Partner Program and Voltage SecureMail Server V3.3

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - August 4, 2008) - Voltage Security, a global leader in information encryption, today announced rapid momentum for its Entourage Partner Program as well as the launch of Voltage SecureMail Server V3.3. Together, the partner program and the new Voltage SecureMail Server release provide a powerful one-two punch for solutions providers seeking rapid encryption revenue opportunities in the retail, healthcare and financial services sector.

"Businesses and organizations are seeking out trusted advisors -- our talented partners -- for email security and data encryption guidance," said Tammy Schuring, vice president of North America sales, Voltage Security. "We want to thank our loyal partners and reward them with an enhanced Identity-Based Encryption solution that drives new revenue opportunities. Voltage SecureMail Server V3.3 combines persistent information encryption with the easiest deployment process in the industry. The result is faster, more lucrative sales cycles for our partners, with enhanced value added services opportunities."

Voltage SecureMail Server V3.3 includes new wizards and configuration templates that cut the install time by 75 percent, enabling partners to complete onsite deployments in as little as seven minutes, Voltage estimates. Those and other ease-of-use enhancements provide simple, easy and effective ways for partners to speed their sales cycles and generate high customer satisfaction, with virtually no new customer support calls as organizations embrace encryption. By cutting the time taken to install the appliance, partners can spend more time consulting with their customers on security policies and best practices.

Voltage SecureMail Server V3.3 is the latest in a growing list of channel-centric efforts underway at Voltage. The company's Entourage Partner Program, launched in November 2007, has attracted over thirty prominent partners -- including such marquee companies as Accuvant, Inc., Accuetrust Security, BEW Global, Broadleaf Group, Cambridge Computer, Dataway, Evolution, FishNet Security Inc., Network Guys.

"Voltage is the rare technology company that's truly a strategic partner," said Tim Carney, CEO, Network Guys. "Voltage's ability to protect data in motion, at rest, and in use gives our customers peace of mind. And with the new Voltage SecureMail Server release, we expect to further accelerate our proof-of-concept engagements and time-to-revenue opportunities."

In fact, Voltage SecureMail Server V3.3 requires 80 percent less training time compared to rival products, Voltage estimates. The product essentially has the highest scalability, and customers can even move towards a hosted model -- which delivers recurring revenue opportunities to partners.
