Brian Contos, Chief Security Officer at ArcSight, and Davi Ottenheimer, Director of Compliance at ArcSight, to Share Insights on How to Protect Government and Corporate Assets

CUPERTINO, CA--(Marketwire - November 14, 2008) -

WHO:    Two security experts from ArcSight, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARST), a leading
        global provider of compliance and security management solutions,
        will share their insights on data security and security
        information and event management (SIEM) at CSI 2008.

        Brian Contos, chief security officer at ArcSight, will address the
        hot topic of SIEM and the often polarizing topic of supervisory
        control and data acquisition (SCADA) in two summit sessions.

        Davi Ottenheimer, director of compliance at ArcSight, will moderate
        the Data Security Summit session.

WHAT:   The CSI 2008 conference organizers have invited Brian Contos and
        Davi Ottenheimer of ArcSight to address an audience of security
        experts and professionals in mid-November.

        Security Incident Event Management Summit:
        -- Brian Contos and other SIEM specialists from the government
           and private industry will discuss current and future SIEM
           capabilities and benefits.

        SCADA / Control Systems Summit:
        -- Brian Contos and security professionals and industry analysts
           will weigh in on the debate about whether there is a real
           threat to the information systems that control power grids and
           water treatment facilities and other physical systems. They
           will discuss how SCADA systems can best be secured.

        Data Security Summit:
        -- Davi Ottenheimer and Bryan Glancey, CTO and Co-Founder of
           Mobile Armor, will present new developments in breach
           prevention through key management and identity-based
           encryption. Discussion will center on how to secure an entire
           data lifecycle -- control and monitor when, how, by whom, and
           on what device data is created, stored, accessed, copied,
           transmitted, outsourced and destroyed.

        The CSI Conference bills itself as the largest information
        security conference on the East Coast. A list of all the sessions
