AirTight Tops Two Categories in the Info Security Products Guide Global Product Excellence Awards -- Customer Trust 2007

SpectraGuard 5.2 Wins the Highest Trust of Customers in Wireless Intrusion Prevention and Wireless Security Categories

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 25, 2007 -- AirTight® Networks, Inc., the leading provider of wireless intrusion prevention solutions, announced today that Info Security Products Guide, the world's leading publication on security-related products and technologies, has named SpectraGuard® Enterprise the winner of the Global Product Excellence Award -- Customer Trust 2007 in two categories -- excellence in wireless intrusion prevention and excellence in wireless security. More than 18,000 end-users and prospective customers worldwide were invited to vote for the products that they trust the most when it comes to protecting their digital resources.

"AirTight provides superior products to our customers, but earning their trust is of the utmost importance, especially when you are offering them security solutions," said David King, chairman and CEO of AirTight. "The release of SpectraGuard Enterprise 5.2 this year set a new standard for WIPS functionality and Info Security Products Guide's recognition of SpectraGuard Enterprise further validates AirTight's leading position in the market."

"Adesa has been a vehicle remarketing industry leader for more than 17 years. Consequently we have to support legacy devices and applications that use outdated security controls," said Chris Roberts, network and security manager at Adesa. "Since I deployed the AirTight solution, I have the confidence that I can support the business goals of the company, enforce our wireless policies and maintain access control of my network."

SpectraGuard 5.2 enhances SpectraGuard's patented wireless threat detection and classification, improves its already robust threat prevention, augments its highly rated reporting capabilities, and includes FIPS compliance. The key elements of an effective wireless intrusion prevention system (WIPS) are:

--  detecting and correctly classifying wireless threats - to catch all
    threats, while minimizing false alarms
--  preventing (multiple, simultaneous) wireless threats - while
    continuing to scan for new ones
--  accurately locating wireless threats on a floor map - so they can be
--  providing a comprehensive reporting capability for compliance and
    audit purposes

"Security products have continued to evolve rapidly in the past few years but so have security threats, especially wireless vulnerabilities. Advanced technologies such as those from AirTight are now making it possible to take a pro-active approach to securing wireless networks and enforcing Wi-Fi policies," said Rake Narang, Managing Editor of Info Security Products Guide. "End-users or consumers of these products have to deal with real-life threats which may differ vastly from lab simulated environments. These users build a strong 'Customer Trust' for products that best meet their requirements and therefore also play a key role in the security evolution cycle."
