Vontu Maintains Lead in Data Loss Prevention Deployments

TheInfoPro's Wave 9 Information Security Study Shows Vontu as Highest in Adoption and Mindshare

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - October 1, 2007) - Vontu, Inc., the leader in Data Loss Prevention solutions, today announced that the results from TheInfoPro's (TIP) Wave 9 Security Study indicate that Vontu continues to have the largest number of deployments and planned deployments in the Outbound Content Compliance (OCC) market.

Based on interviews with 152 information security professionals at Fortune 1000 and midsize enterprises, TIP's Wave 9 Information Security Study shows that Vontu leads the OCC category with more than twice the number of deployments and planned deployments of its closest competitors. The Study covers over 100 vendors in 43 information security categories. Vontu has led the OCC category in both adoption and mindshare for three consecutive Wave Studies.

Also in the Wave 9 Study, Outbound Content Compliance moved to #1 in the Infrastructure Security category of TIP's Technology "Heat" Index®, up from #2 in Wave 8, which was released in February, 2007. The "Heat" Index gauges the immediacy of user needs and planned spending for each technology. The result equates to an excellent market opportunity.

"In TIP's Information Security Wave 9 Study, Vontu continues to be the clear market leader of the Outbound Content Compliance market based on the in-depth interviews TIP conducts with hundreds of information security professionals," said Bill Trussell, TheInfoPro's managing director for Information Security Research. "The OCC category also continues to rate high on our Heat Index, showing that market demand is strong."

"In the past six months, the TIP study shows that Data Loss Prevention remains a top priority for enterprises, and that Vontu deployments continue to hold a significant lead over other vendors according to security professionals," said Steve Roop, vice president of marketing and products at Vontu. "Vontu's proven leadership in the Fortune 1000 is a direct result of responding to market requirements and giving executives a proactive way to protect confidential data so that they can maintain the trust of their customers, partners and shareholders."
