St. Bernard's iPrism Web Filter Receives Technology & Learning Award of Excellence for Second Consecutive Year

Web Filter Appliance Maintains Its Standing as One of the Best Education Offerings of the Past Year

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - November 9, 2010) -   St. Bernard Software, Inc. (OTCBB: SBSW), a leader in Secure Content Management (SCM) solutions, today announced that its iPrism Web Filter appliance was awarded the prestigious "Award of Excellence" by Technology & Learning Magazine for the second consecutive year.

The Technology & Learning "Award of Excellence" is a 28-year-old recognition program that honors software, hardware, network, and web products that break new ground in some significant way, as well as those that prove to demonstrate superiority over similar solutions in the education market. This year, a panel of more than 30 educators, who tested more than 140 entries across the country, evaluated and selected the winners.

"We are extremely pleased by the continued recognition from Technology and Learning Magazine, as it reinforces St. Bernard's commitment to delivering best-in-class Web filtering across all educational institutions," said Brian Nugent, chief operating officer at St. Bernard. "As the 1-to-1 laptop initiative continues to gain traction, St. Bernard's unique cloud-based remote filtering solution effectively manages student's Internet access while using mobile devices, thereby reducing the potential for security threats, liability issues, or compliance risks. We believe it's our combination of enterprise-grade, high performance features, with a proven lowest Total Cost of Ownership, that has established iPrism as the Web filter of choice within the education industry."

"Now that the use of technology in schools is no longer a novelty but a reality, it's no longer about the promise of what a product can do; it's about the proof," says Kevin Hogan, Editorial Director for NewBay Media's Tech & Learning Group. "This year's Award of Excellence products were tested by edtech experts from the New York City Department of Education and the University of Michigan, our top T&L advisors, and more. These companies can be proud that their products were selected as winners by this prestigious team of judges."

A market leader in the web filtering industry since 2001, St. Bernard's award-winning iPrism Web filter protects organizations from security, regulatory, productivity and network performance risks that can result from inappropriate use of Web, IM and P2P. Delivering exceptional security, performance and the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) in the industry, the iPrism Web filter is the preferred solution for addressing the Web filtering needs of the mid-market enterprise.
