SteelCloud Receives Nasdaq Non-Compliance Notice

Issue Centers on Minimum Share Price Requirement

HERNDON, VA--(Marketwire - March 18, 2008) - SteelCloud, Inc. (NASDAQ: SCLD), a manufacturer of embedded integrated computing systems for the industrial automation marketplace ("SteelCloud"), today announced it has received notice from Nasdaq, under Marketplace Rule 4310(c)(4)(the "Rule"), that its common stock is subject to potential delisting from the Nasdaq National Market because the bid price of the Company's common stock closed below the minimum $1.00 per share requirement for 30 consecutive business days prior to March 13, 2008.

Under Marketplace Rule 4310(c)(8)(D) the Company has been granted an initial 180 calendar days, or until September 9, 2008, to regain compliance. If at anytime before September 9, 2008, the bid price of the Company's common stock closes at $1.00 per share or more for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days, the Company will be provided written notification that it complies with the Rule.

Further, if compliance with this Rule cannot be demonstrated by September 9, 2008, Nasdaq will determine whether the Company meets the Nasdaq Capital Market initial listing criteria as set forth in Marketplace Rule 4310(c), except for the bid price requirement. If the Company meets the initial listing criteria, Nasdaq will notify the Company that it has been granted an additional 180 calendar days to regain compliance.

If the Company is not eligible for an additional compliance period, Nasdaq will notify the Company that its common stock will be delisted. At that time, the Company may appeal this determination to delist its securities to a listing qualification panel.

The Company continues to operate in the normal course of business and is actively pursuing a number of initiatives to bring the Company into compliance with the minimum share price requirement.
