The San Francisco Moscone Center Selects St. Bernard's iPrism Web Filter as Preferred Internet Filtering Solution

Feature Rich Appliance Provides Prestigious Convention Center With Reliable, Proactive Prevention of Web-Based Security Threats

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - April 21, 2009) - St. Bernard Software, Inc. (OTCBB: SBSW), a leader in Web security appliances, today announced that the San Francisco Moscone Center, one of the largest event centers in the United States, is now an iPrism Web Filter customer. Moscone chose iPrism for its ease of use, and its ability to provide 24x7 protection against critical security risks.

As host of the annual RSA Conference, recognized as the world's largest information security industry conference and expo, the Moscone Center is synonymous with best-of-breed technology and network protection. With operations running round-the-clock and responsible for enormous amounts of critical data, Moscone wanted to proactively mitigate any potential malware, spyware and other Internet-based threats from infecting corporate machines and potentially corrupting the network.

After evaluating various competitive solutions, the iPrism Web Filter proved the most reliable at providing seamless perimeter protection against malware while easing IT administration burdens.

Moscone was also impressed by iPrism's ease-of-use and management. Prior to implementing the appliance, Moscone's IT department spent hours each week adjusting Internet access for employees who needed access to specific job-related sites. With iPrism, Moscone's IT staff can easily customize settings and set special permissions with only a few simple mouse clicks, saving valuable time and allowing administrators to focus on other critical tasks. Not only does this allow the organization to run more efficiently, but it also keeps employees more focused and productive.

"Above everything else, we wanted to ensure that our network was secure from any outside security threats that could impact our work environment," said Jeewan Gill, IT Manager at Moscone Center. "As a 24x7 operation, we needed to make sure that our computers weren't vulnerable to malware, spyware, and Internet-based viruses. iPrism prevents these threats from infecting employee desktops and impacting productivity. iPrism also prevents access to inappropriate Web sites, and provides us with the visibility we need to investigate specific workstations or network issues."

"Moscone's situation is unique because they happen to host the largest security event of the year," said Steve Yin, vice president global sales and marketing at St. Bernard. "Our high-performance appliance is tailored to provide accurate and reliable security against Web-based threats, while allowing organizations to affordably and efficiently maintain healthy networks without placing a heavy burden on limited IT staff and resources."

St. Bernard's iPrism is a self-contained, dedicated Internet filtering appliance that is simple for organizations to install, configure and manage. It provides protection from online threats in HTTP, IM and P2P traffic including spyware, malware and phishing, as well as prevents employee Internet abuse by managing Web access.
