SECUDE Will Certify FinallySecure - Enterprise Under FIPS 140-2

LUCERNE, SWITZERLAND--(Marketwire - September 12, 2007) - SECUDE International AG, the End-to-End IT Security Products & Solutions Company, announced today that its Pre-Boot Authentication and Full Disk Encryption solution FinallySecure - Enterprise is now listed under FIPS 140-2 Pre-Validation.

FinallySecure - Enterprise provides total Data-at-Rest security for hardware- or software-based Full Disk Encryption (FDE) technologies. The solution is available in its single user edition bundled in new systems with a Seagate 5400 Momentus FDE.2 disk drive or in the Enterprise edition installed separately. FinallySecure acts as a complete security umbrella by providing an Adaptive Technology with Risk Management and Productivity gains for End-to-End protection.

"Certification will help our customers comply with government regulations and standards by confirming that our products meet the highest security requirements," says Tristan Kromer, Business Unit Manager Mobile Security at SECUDE. "This is an important step to fulfilling our commitment to our partners and channels who wish to address the FIPS compliant marketplace with our best-of-breed Data-at-Rest solutions like FinallySecure."

The Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 regulations are security standards defining prerequisites that security solutions must meet to protect sensitive data in US and Canadian government agencies (for more information see: http://www.nist.gov/). This certification is often a benchmark for private companies seeking independent verification that the encryption technology has been implemented in a rigorous and verifiable fashion.
