Lumension Security Named to JMP Securities' Hot 100

Global Leader in Unified Endpoint Security Solutions Is Recognized as One of the Best Privately Held Software Companies

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - May 6, 2008) - Lumension Security™ Inc., a recognized, global leader in security management, today announced that the company has been selected to JMP Securities' Hot 100 list as part of the March 2008 report entitled "Hot 100: The Best Privately Held Software Companies."

"There is a clear shift in the security market as enterprises become borderless with the growth of remote users and mobile technologies.

"To help our customers to better control and safeguard data, we have spent the last year bringing together key technologies that flip the traditional security model on its head. Our solutions allow administrators to proactively manage risk and safeguard data anytime, anywhere from both current and future threats while meeting stringent compliance requirements."

"To this end, we are honored to be recognized as one of the best privately held companies by JMP Securities. This recognition is a testament to our vision and promise of delivering more value, better security and lower TCO for our customers and partners," continued Clawson.
