Security With Advanced Technology Re-Focuses ShiftWatch Business Unit

SWAT to Shift Focus From Development to Sales and Marketing to Position ShiftWatch as a Value-Added Custom Turn-Key Supplier

WESTMINSTER, CO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 9, 2007 -- Security With Advanced Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWAT) (NASDAQ: SWATW), a leading provider of security products and services, today announced that it will refocus its ShiftWatch business unit by reallocating priorities and resources to focus on sales and marketing.

ShiftWatch produces a line of mobile digital video surveillance solutions for public transportation and general security applications. ShiftWatch's TVS 300 digital surveillance product, unveiled in late 2006, is currently being retooled to improve hardware performance and reliability. This improvement will address the transportation industry's demand for high-quality digital surveillance video with streaming capabilities and GPS synchronization.

As part of the change SWAT is reducing its engineering staff at its Loveland, Colo. office with the remaining employees relocating to the Westminster, Colo. corporate offices. SWAT's engineering staff will be focused on custom applications as well as adding strategic features to enhance the TVS 300 solution.

"While there are a number of areas of positive transition in process for SWAT, we are very optimistic about where the company is going in 2007," said Scott Sutton, president of SWAT. "As we move forward following the recent acquisitions of Vizer and Avurt we have the opportunity with greater resources and an expanded management team to continually reevaluate our current business model and make changes to improve the quality of our products and services. The introduction of our Avurt launcher continues to progress and we have several follow-on security products either in prototype or late design stage that are also anticipated to generate revenues in 2007."

SWAT: About the Business Units

The new devices, when completed, will be laser aimed and fire a projectile up to 40 feet away that breaks on impact dispersing a cloud of potent pepper-based powder causing a severe debilitating reaction in the target area, effective on most humans and animals.

Division X: Veritas Tactical creates innovative training systems and tools to increase the quality of training worldwide for law enforcement, militaries, both private and government, and civilians while decreasing their potential liability and saving lives. The company's credo is "Progressive solutions for impossible situations." Veritas Tactical's product development team is bringing new training tools to market in 2007 to change the face of training.
