Ounce Labs Names Doug Fusco Vice President of Worldwide Sales

Former Oracle and SAP Executive Brings Enterprise Software Expertise to Meet Market Demand

WALTHAM, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 19, 2005 -- Ounce Labs, the leader in software security assurance, today announced it has named Doug Fusco as Vice President of Worldwide Sales. Previously Vice President of Sales for SAP and Director of Sales for Oracle, Fusco brings over 20 years of consistent success selling enterprise-level business solutions. He is leading an aggressive expansion of Ounce Labs' sales force to match the surging interest from companies committed to assuring the security of their software.

"Executives are finding out first-hand that the security of their software is critical to business operations," said Fusco. "Ounce Labs' products are helping companies answer questions like: which applications comply with our security requirements, which put our operations at risk, and how are these risk levels impacted by our developers, outsourcing partners, and security investments? In evaluating this market, it was clear to me that Ounce is the only company addressing these questions from an enterprise perspective."

In addition to his experience with some of the world's largest software companies, Fusco has led a series of sales teams and emerging companies to periods of exponential sales growth. In his most recent position as Senior Vice President of Ketera Technologies, his team delivered outstanding results that elevated the company to be recognized by analysts as the dominant industry leader.

"Doug's entire career has been focused on providing executives with solutions that drive business success," said Jack Danahy, CEO of Ounce Labs. "Software vulnerabilities present a very real risk to operations and reputation, and our customers reflect an increasing number of corporations and government agencies compelled by targeted threats, internal standards, regulations, and a variety of other external pressures to make smart software risk decisions. Doug is a strong addition to our team as we help these organizations continuously evaluate, measure, and improve the security of their software."

Ounce Labs' products allow enterprises to analyze vulnerability levels and adherence to security standards by assessing the software's source code.
