Voltage Security Positioned in Visionaries Quadrant in 2007 Magic Quadrant for Email Encryption

Evaluation Based in Part on Understanding of Markets Served, Innovation and Product Differentiation, Soundness of Business Model and Strategic Directions

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - November 15, 2007) - Voltage Security, Inc. (www.voltage.com), a global leader in information encryption, announced today its positioning in the visionaries quadrant in the new Gartner Magic Quadrant for Email Encryption, 2007 (Eric Ouellet and Arabella Hallawell, November 8, 2007), which looks at products securing email content data and attachments.

Gartner states: "Email encryption [is] an important mechanism for allowing the transit of sensitive data" and it's "required to protect private and confidential data communicated to clients, partners and external processors."

"We are pleased to see the world's leading analyst firm's evaluation of Voltage; we believe this placement confirms what our growing Global 1000 customers tell us that Voltage provides -- highest ease of use, lowest cost of ownership and the highest scalability," said Sathvik Krishnamurthy, president and CEO of Voltage Security.

Voltage is achieving record financial performance and has been cash flow positive from operations for the past three consecutive quarters. Market acceptance for its newest product, the Voltage Security Network™ (VSN), has been dramatic, with over 35,000 subscribers in just 6 months.

Placement in the quadrant is based partly on completeness of vision, which includes a keen understanding of the market; clear and differentiated marketing strategy; strong direct and indirect sales and distribution strategy; integration with enterprise infrastructures; easy interoperation with other security and management systems; significant product differentiation in functionality, methodology and feature set; a strategy to address the needs of vertical markets; a sound business model; and innovation.

The fastest-growing email encryption solution, Voltage SecureMail excels in enterprise customer acquisition, deployment size, and -- further still with the latest release -- enterprise depth. Based on the breakthrough cryptographic innovation known as Voltage Identity-Based Encryption™ (IBE), Voltage raises the bar even higher 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 marks a turning point for the international email encryption market; where many early email encryption programs were complex, technically-focused products that didn't scale, Voltage SecureMail offers next-generation cryptography for "encryption that just works."

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.
