Liquid Machines to Discuss Data Protection Strategies at SecureWorld Expo and Enterprise Security Management Conferences

Events in California and Virginia Highlight Growing Importance of Public and Private Sector Information Security

WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwire - September 19, 2007) - Liquid Machines®, Inc., the leader in Enterprise Rights Management (ERM) solutions, today announced that Arny Epstein, Chief Technology Officer, will be presenting at the AFEI Enterprise Security Management Fall Festival in Vienna, Virginia taking place on September 20-21, 2007. This conference will be held at the Sheraton Premiere at Tysons Corner in conjunction with the Department of Defense and the National Security Agency.

Additionally, Ed Gaudet, Liquid Machines' vice president of product management and marketing, will be presenting at the San Francisco SecureWorld Expo on September 19-20, 2007 at the South San Francisco Convention Center.

At the AFEI Enterprise Security Management Fall Festival, Epstein will participate in the panel:

--  "Building ESM Solutions," which will take place on Friday, September
    21 from 1:00-2:30 pm EDT

Epstein and his fellow panellists will discuss industry approaches, methodology and technologies that can help contribute operationally to greater security across agencies and departments. "Strongly protecting your critical data -- wherever it is in the company or agency -- is directly related to how effectively you're able to function as an organization," said Epstein. "Without a firm hold on classified information that ensures it is indeed kept classified -- the advantages said data lent you are quickly lost."

At SecureWorld San Francisco, Gaudet will participate in the panel:

--  "Start Encrypting Now, The Lawyers Are Coming!" which will take place
