SafeBoot Announces 2006 Year-End Earnings Results

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 7, 2007 -- SafeBoot today announced a record-breaking fiscal year 2006 with a 69% increase over 2005. With revenue totaling over $40 million, SafeBoot continues its trend of 20 consecutive quarters of revenue growth. The announcement was made at the RSA Conference 2007 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

The company experienced significant worldwide growth largely due to the need for global organizations to find a scalable, proven technology that stops data leakage while offering low cost of ownership. SafeBoot also attributes the growth to an increasing number of deals whereby SafeBoot replaced an incumbent data protection technology. SafeBoot has over 3,000 clients in 74 countries, including more than 150 Fortune 500 companies that represent more than three-million active licenses.

"SafeBoot customers are careful to choose the encryption technology that is right for their environment and they go through meticulous investigation of available solutions. We are proud to have experienced a consistent increase in the number of large-scale, enterprise purchases by customers who must protect data anywhere they are in the world," said Gerhard Watzinger, CEO of SafeBoot. "Based on customer feedback, we were not surprised to see a significant number of deals where SafeBoot replaced an existing technology, mostly due to the limitations of scalability of those technologies," said Watzinger.

SafeBoot is one of the world's leading providers of software designed to protect mobile computing devices via powerful encryption and access control technologies. Software Magazine ranked SafeBoot as the 311th largest software and services provider in the world, and the company was recently recognized as a leader in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Mobile Data Security.

SafeBoot has administration offices operating in the Americas, Belgium, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Sweden, UK, Ireland and Curacao.
