REDWOOD CITY, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 5, 2005 -- Network Chemistry Inc., the wireless security experts, announced today that it has secured more than 75 new enterprise deployments since the beginning of the third quarter in July.

Now our rapid customer growth shows both the value that we provide our customers and our progress in making wireless threat protection technology broadly available and easy to implement," said Rob Markovich, president and CEO of Network Chemistry. "We'll continue to innovate at a rapid pace, remain closely linked with the technical community, and offer award-winning products that assure enterprises they can protect their wireless data, networks, and users."
