SkyRecon Rolls Out StormShield 4.8

Complete Protection and Control for Endpoint Data and Systems

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - December 5, 2007) - SkyRecon Systems, the premier provider of unified endpoint security solutions, today announced the release of version 4.8 of its endpoint security product StormShield. The product is the first in the industry to offer multiple system and data protection layers to be managed through a single lightweight agent and single management console.

"Unlike other endpoint offerings that are bloated and bundled together through multiple acquisitions, SkyRecon's StormShield unified endpoint protection client has been designed and built to be lightweight, flexible, and extendable; giving organizations the protection they need with the flexibility to choose which components to utilize," said Ravy Truchot, SkyRecon CEO.

Available in now, StormShield version 4.8 delivers the Flexible Data Encryption (FDE) module -- giving IT administrators the ability to centrally manage file-based data encryption policies for all of their mobile and desktop systems. Unlike full-disk encryption technologies that are resource intensive and hinder the day-to-day IT operations or bypass IT security policy, StormShield's multi-key file-based encryption model allows IT administrators to manage the desired state of the PC without compromising the system performance and data protection requirements specified in their IT Security policies.

With the integration of secure data encryption, StormShield version 4.8 enables organizations to:

--  Protect their sensitive business data theft, loss, and misuse
--  Audit, monitor, and report on encryption and removable device activity
--  Enforce encryption policies on removable devices (USB, FireWire, CD-
    RW, etc.)
--  Define dynamic system group, network-aware, and device-based
    encryption policies
--  Define user-based encryption policies for use with multi-user
--  Define a single endpoint security policies that includes secure data
    encryption policy

With StormShield's integrated secure data encryption, device control, wireless security, and network access control components, organizations can define a single location-aware endpoint protection policy that prevents sensitive data from being removed from their endpoint systems, from unauthorized network locations, and through the use of unauthorized removable storage devices.
