Research Firm Categorizes SafeBoot in Leaders Quadrant Based on "Completeness of Vision" and "Ability to Execute"

NAPLES, FL--(Marketwire - September 20, 2007) - SafeBoot, a leading vendor of enterprise-class security software for the protection of data on laptops and other mobile devices, today announced it has been positioned in the Leaders Quadrant of the recently released Gartner, Inc. "Magic Quadrant for Mobile Data Protection, 2007" by John Girard and Ray Wagner, published on Sept. 10, 2007. Gartner categorizes companies in the Leaders Quadrant based on their 'Completeness of Vision' and 'Ability to Execute.'

According to the report, Gartner Magic Quadrant leaders "have products that work well for Gartner clients. They have long-term road maps that match Gartner's vision of the developing needs of buyers in the market. They make their competitors' sales staff nervous and force competitors' technical staffs to follow their lead. Their mobile data protection products are well-known to clients, and they encounter little resistance in selling their products."

"We think Gartner's evaluation and placement of SafeBoot technology validates our long-standing commitment to ensuring our customers receive the highest possible protection from the escalating levels of data and device theft, misuse and loss," said SafeBoot CEO Gerhard Watzinger. "SafeBoot's market-leading reputation has been built by consistently delivering world-class encryption technologies that arm our customers with superlative protection, and the enterprise-grade assurance they need to comply with regulatory mandates."

High-profile incidents, from TJX Corp. to the Department of Veterans Affairs, have spotlighted publicly the need to protect data at risk, or data that typically resides on laptops, storage devices, PDAs and other mobile devices. Compliance and regulatory mandates in public and private industry have generated a surge in demand for data encryption technology worldwide.
