Lumension Security Expands Management Team to Support Increasing Global Demand for Its Industry-Leading Unified Endpoint Security Solutions

Leading Global Security Management Company Appoints Industry Veteran C. Edward Brice as Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - March 24, 2008) - Lumension Security™, Inc., a leading global security management company formed by the combination of PatchLink® Corporation and SecureWave S.A., today announced the appointment of C. Edward Brice as Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing. Brice will leverage his 18 years of global marketing experience -- most recently with software maker SAP AG -- to lead Lumension Security's strategic global marketing efforts to support the increasing demand for the company's industry-leading unified endpoint protection and control solutions.

"While 2007 was extremely successful for Lumension Security, we anticipate that we will make an even bigger splash in 2008 as more and more companies realize that traditional, reactive endpoint security solutions cannot keep pace with today's evolving threat landscape," said Patrick Clawson, chairman and CEO of Lumension Security, Inc. "Our Positive Security Model is simply the most effective approach to dealing with today's sophisticated endpoint security threats, and we are dedicated to positioning our proactive philosophy as the de facto standard to combat endpoint security challenges. Hiring an experienced industry visionary like Ed to help shape our marketing strategies and execute on initiatives to support our aggressive goals is critical to achieving them. We are thrilled to have Ed join our management team and expect to enjoy tremendous success in 2008 and beyond."

Prior to joining Lumension Security, Brice held several positions with SAP, the world's largest business to business applications software provider. Most recently, he was responsible for defining and executing demand generation marketing programs across Europe, the Americas and Asia Pacific. Before that, he served as vice president of global supply chain management solution marketing and also as SAP's vice president of global strategic marketing. Prior to joining SAP, Brice served as the director of business development & business planning for Sony Electronics and Sony Corporation of America where he was responsible for the identification and development of new business related to emerging technologies and services. Brice earned a bachelor's degree in international marketing from Arizona State University.

"IT Security is an industry that so desperately needs forward-thinking companies willing to develop disruptive, game-changing technologies. As high-profile malware attacks and incidents of data theft continue to make headlines, it is clear that today's cybercriminals have exposed the gaping flaws in traditional approaches to security," said Brice. "Lumension Security's proactive approach to security represents a much-needed change in the way that organizations address their endpoint security challenges. I am excited to join such a fast-growing company, and look forward to helping Lumension Security position itself as one of the world's premier IT security companies and brands."
