Partnership Makes Vontu Data Loss Prevention Solutions Available to BEW Global Customers

DENVER, CO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 5, 2006 -- BEW Global, an Information Asset Protection and Network Security solution provider, today announced that it has joined the Vontu VAR Program. The program is open to qualified VARs who have extensive expertise in security technologies and serve specific market segments and geographic locations. As a member, BEW Global will resell the Vontu data loss prevention solution in the United States and the United Kingdom, as part of the company's strategy to provide customers with comprehensive security solutions.

BEW regularly performs risk assessments, provides security and compliance expertise, and implements a range of security products to organizations in industries such as healthcare, financial services, insurance and technology. By working with Vontu, BEW will be able to enhance its product portfolio and provide customers with a comprehensive solution to discover and protect confidential data on servers and desktops, monitor and prevent data from leaving the network, and automatically enforce data loss prevention policies.

"The Vontu partnership allows us to provide the industry-leading data loss prevention solution to both our U.S. and U.K. customers that require the highest level of protection from the inside out," said Robert Eggebrecht, Senior Partner of BEW Global. "Data breaches caused by insiders are a major security concern, as employees inadvertently or deliberately leak sensitive information including intellectual property and customer data. After working with our clients for several years on data loss issues, we have concluded that Vontu offers the best solution. With Vontu, we are poised to offer a solution that not only detects information leaks, but prevents confidential data from leaving the organization in the first place."

Vontu has created a network of service and solution providers that distribute and implement its award-winning Data Loss Prevention solution. By working with VARs, Vontu is expanding its reach to large organizations in the enterprise market as well as entering the small-to-medium-sized business market.

"We are delighted to welcome BEW into our family of reseller partners, and we look forward to working closely with BEW to make our joint customers successful."
