NSAT Selects Secure Computing's Secure Web and Secure Firewall for Its Integrated Network Management Services Facility

Solutions Will Augment Construction of the Network Security Infrastructure for the "eXpert Operation Center," the Largest Facility of Its Kind in Japan

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - April 21, 2008) - Secure Computing Corporation (NASDAQ: SCUR), a leading enterprise gateway security company, today announced that Network Service And Technologies Co., Ltd. (NSAT) has selected Secure Computing's Secure Web (formerly known as Webwasher®) and Secure Firewall (formerly known as Sidewinder®) for its eXpert Operation Center (XOC), the largest integrated network management services facility in Japan.

NSAT's eXpert Operation Center will implement Secure Computing's Secure Web, the industry's first and only reputation-based Web gateway security solution that protects enterprises from spyware, phishing, malware, data leakage and Internet misuse, while ensuring policy enforcement, regulatory compliance and a productive application environment. Secure Web employs the most sophisticated behavioral and signature-based techniques for stopping malware, as well as patented content analysis software for stopping data leakage. The solution takes a new and radically different approach to Internet security, employing Secure Computing's global reputation-based system and methodology, TrustedSource™ technology. Like a credit agency provides credit scores to enable reliable commerce, TrustedSource provides source-based reputation scores for URLs, domains and IP addresses as well as content-based reputation scores for Web page content, messages, attachments and images.

NSAT has also chosen Secure Computing's Secure Firewall, which consolidates perimeter security functions under a single management interface to deliver application-layer performance and best-in-class security. The solution is built with a combination of high-speed application proxies, TrustedSource technology, and an arsenal of signature-based security services, making it one of the strongest Unified Threat Management firewalls to defend networks and Internet-facing applications from all types of malicious threats, both known and unknown.

"In order to make our network operation management services highly reliable, ensuring an advanced security infrastructure in the eXpert Operation Center was essential," said Mr. Toshihiro Yokomori, Senior Manager, Operation Control Center 2, Operation Control Div. of Network Service And Technologies Co., Ltd. "After implementing Secure Computing's solutions, our company's network management efficiency improved by 20 percent, which allows us to focus on providing our customers with the best provision of services in the market."

Moving forward, Secure Computing will work with NSAT to host the TrustedSource datacenter in Japan, and together the two companies are developing ways to further strengthen NSAT's eXpert Operation Center with additional TrustedSource technology.

The XOC was established in January 2007 to provide companies with network operation management services. XOC is the only service center within Japan that can conduct integrated management of various operation services such as network management and security management for companies in one location. The facility is the largest of its kind in Japan at an impressive 250m2 with approximately 200 engineers working to improve the accessibility of corporate network systems.
