INTEGRITY Global Security, LLC: New Company Formed to Focus on Securing Corporate, Government and Military Computers & Networks

Based on EAL6+ Certified INTEGRITY Operating System

SANTA BARBARA, CA and WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - November 18, 2008) - INTEGRITY Global Security, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Green Hills Software, Inc., today announced its formation by parent company, Green Hills Software, Inc. INTEGRITY Global Security was created to provide companies, governments, and individuals secure, safe, and reliable computing, and to ensure that their cyber assets are safe from accidental compromises, cyber criminals, and cyber terrorists. This announcement follows the INTEGRITY®-178B operating system EAL6+ High Robustness certification by the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP), a joint US Government initiative managed by the National Security Agency (NSA).

The foundation of INTEGRITY Global Security is the INTEGRITY operating system, the first and only operating system to be evaluated by the NSA and certified by NIAP to EAL6+ High Robustness for the protection of classified and high value information against well-funded, sophisticated attackers.

The first deployment of the INTEGRITY operating system was in 1997 in mission critical systems aboard the B-1B bomber. The INTEGRITY operating system is now deployed throughout our nation's most advanced aircraft, including the F-16, F-22 and the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter in addition to many commercial aircraft including the Airbus 380 and Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

INTEGRITY Global Security will be led by CEO David Chandler, and supported by a distinguished Board of Advisors. "Green Hills Software is the only company to have ever achieved the highest-level operating system certifications for both absolute security and total reliability. These, combined with a 10-year history of deployment in aircraft, communications systems, automobiles, medical products, networking equipment, and office products, have provided for the perfect platform that we can provide military grade security for the enterprise," said David Chandler, CEO of INTEGRITY Global Security. "Cyber terrorists and criminals continue to unleash increasingly sophisticated and devastating attacks on systems that really should be secure. With INTEGRITY Global Security's solutions, companies and governments can, for the first time, truly defend themselves from cyber criminals, cyber terrorists, insider attack, and hackers."

For more than a decade, INTEGRITY Global Security's experts have applied a proven methodology to create absolutely secure and totally reliable software. The INTEGRITY operating system was built from the ground up with security and reliability at its foundation. A secure operating system is fundamental to solving security challenges. One of the key principles of this methodology is the ability to securely separate critical computer functions and valuable data.

INTEGRITY Global Security's experts are skilled in identifying critical security vulnerabilities in computing infrastructures and then using certified secure solutions and services to close the gaps to make computing environments secure. INTEGRITY Global Security is the only source for certified EAL6+ High Robustness IT security solutions built with the INTEGRITY operating system for commercial and government enterprises.

"For years, information security has been myopically protecting the organization from the outside in, with technologies like firewalls and antivirus and largely overlooked the need to protect it from the inside out. In Gartner's vision of Adaptive Security Infrastructure, protecting workloads and information from the inside out will require more intelligent security sensors throughout the infrastructure -- at endpoints, virtual servers and within the applications and data themselves," said Neil MacDonald, vice president and Gartner fellow. "However, security software running on the same physical machine as the workloads and information it is protecting can't be unequivocally trusted without strong isolation, high assurance and resiliency of the software, and trust attestation which will become the foundation for next-generation Adaptive Security Infrastructure."

David Chandler joined Green Hills Software in 1993. Mr. Chandler has more than 23 years of experience in direct sales and sales management of technical software and hardware products. From 1987 to 1992, he was a Regional Sales Manager at Avalon Computer Systems, a company affiliated with Green Hills Software.

Also, Michael Liacko was appointed Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. Mr. Liacko has more than 30 years of global sales and marketing executive management experience. His business career has been primarily focused in the technology and telecommunications industries where he held the position of Global Vice President of Sales for Global Crossing and Senior Vice President of Sales for Key3 Media. During the last five years he has led a consulting practice that focused in the petrochemical, financial and software markets.

INTEGRITY Global Security has formed a Board of Advisors who will serve to guide a paradigm shift in how governments and commercial enterprises leverage INTEGRITY to secure critical information assets. Members include:

--  General Eugene E. Habiger, USAF, Retired Four Star General; Commander
    in Chief, US Strategic Air Command; Former Director of Security and
    Emergency Operations, US Department of Energy; Former President and CEO San
    Antonio Water System
--  Joe Levy, Executive Vice President and Group Publisher, TechTarget CIO
    Decisions Media; founder of CXO Media; Publisher of CIO Magazine and CSO
--  C. Thomas McMillen, Chairman and CEO, Homeland Security Capital
    Corporation; Vice Chairman, Fortress International Group, Inc.; Chairman
    and Co-CEO, Secure America  Acquisition Corp.; former three-term
    Congressman from Maryland
