Ingrian Networks Introduces New File Encryption Solution for Encrypting Sensitive Data on Corporate File and e-Mail Servers

Works With Company's Flagship DataSecure Platform to Help Enterprise Users Protect Data and Achieve Compliance

REDWOOD CITY, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 5, 2007 -- Ingrian® Networks, Inc., the leading provider of data privacy solutions, today announced the release of the Ingrian File System Connector, the industry's first hardware-based key management solution for encrypting structured and unstructured data. The file encryption solution works with Ingrian's flagship DataSecure® Platform to provide transparent, policy-driven and granular encryption of directories and files on corporate servers, enabling a complete end-to-end encryption solution.

Government and industry mandates require companies to provide audit trail information that proves their processes are documented and enforced. Ingrian's comprehensive solution addresses security concerns and compliance mandates by protecting data within applications, databases and storage sub-systems. Customers now have a file encryption solution to protect all types of files such as Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents as well as database files that are housed within corporate servers.

"File encryption is a major concern for enterprises," said Jon Oltsik, senior analyst, information security for Enterprise Strategy Group. "Users are looking for a complete solution, and by introducing the File System Connector, Ingrian has now created an integrated offering that enables encryption at the application, database or file level."

Ingrian File System Connector allows existing DataSecure customers to leverage their existing security investments, and protects sensitive structured and unstructured data-at-rest throughout the network, including data that is backed-up off-site.

Ingrian File System Connector offers:

--  Encryption of all types of files including MS Word, Excel and
    PowerPoint documents as well as database data files.
--  Ability to track activities including file opens, data migration and
    key rotation.
--  100 percent transparency to end users, applications, databases, and
    administrators enabling seamless integration with no application changes
    required.
--  The ability to set highly granular policies with rules applied to
    specific directories, files or file types.
    
Ingrian File System Connector communicates with an Ingrian DataSecure appliance to provide central management of keys and policies as well as the logging of administrative and access events. Additionally, no downtime is required during the implementation process or when keys are rotated.

"With so many government and industry mandates such as Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, Senate Bill 1386 and Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard looming, organizations are under pressure like never before to ensure unstructured data files housed on corporate servers are secure," said Derek Tumulak, Vice President of Product Management for Ingrian Networks. "Sensitive business and personal information must be protected from accidental or malicious exposure to unauthorized personnel and Ingrian File System Connector ensures organizations can protect sensitive structured and unstructured data stored throughout the enterprise including data backed up off-site."

Ingrian File System Connector will be available as a software download from the Ingrian support site at http://www.ingrian.com/support.html in mid-March. Pricing starts at $15,000 (USD).
