Secure Passage Invites IT Security Community to Discuss Technology and Economy via Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn During RSA Conference 2009; Discussion to Include Technology and Economy-Focused Survey Results

OVERLAND PARK, KS and SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - April 16, 2009) - Secure Passage, the leading provider of automated security analysis and compliance solutions for firewalls, routers and switches, today announced that in addition to interacting with the IT security community on the show floor at RSA Conference 2009 in San Francisco, April 20-24, the company will also be hosting discussions on its Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn accounts. To spark discussion, Secure Passage will conduct two "man-on-the-street" surveys at the conference and post the results to all three social media venues, where members of the IT security community can comment on the survey results as well as share information on other relevant IT security issues.

The discussion-sparking surveys are "Virtual Firewalls: Myth vs. Reality" and "Impact 09: How Reduced Spending is Affecting Information Security." Virtual Firewalls: Myth vs. Reality will look at how enterprises are using virtual firewalls in their enterprises; Impact 09: How Reduced Spending is Affecting Information Security will reveal how the current economic situation is affecting IT security spending and security overall. Both surveys will poll IT security decision makers from a wide range of industries. Results from Virtual Firewalls: Myth vs. Reality will be released on Tuesday, April 21 at 4 p.m. PDT; results from Impact 09: How Reduced Spending is Affecting Information Security will be released Wednesday, April 22 between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. PDT. RSA Conference 2009 attendees desiring to take the survey can do so by visiting Secure Passage on the show floor (booth 553) during exhibition hours; all survey respondents will be registered to win the latest 16GB iPod touch. In addition to being released on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn, survey results will be published via Marketwire and through the RSA Conference 2009 virtual pressroom.

"We are looking forward to sharing information, findings and opinions with the IT security industry's diverse community," said Jody Brazil, Secure Passage co-founder, president and CTO. "These relevant survey topics will make for rich, lively discussions between us and many of InfoSec's thought leaders, journalists, bloggers, and analysts."
