StillSecure® Supports Trusted Computing Group's Trusted Network Connect Initiative

StillSecure Is Committed to Open Standards for Network Access and Endpoint Integrity

SUPERIOR, CO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 2, 2006 -- StillSecure, provider of an award-winning integrated suite of enterprise network security solutions, today announced its support for the Trusted Computing Group (TCG)'s Trusted Network Connect (TNC) initiative. TNC is a sub group within the TCG that has defined and released an open architecture and a growing set of specifications for endpoint integrity. StillSecure is working to incorporate the TNC specifications into Safe Access, the company's network access control solution.

Safe Access is a flexible, infrastructure-agnostic network access control solution that integrates with the core IT environment using the Safe Access Enterprise Integration Framework™. Safe Access and TNC are based on an open framework, enabling interoperability between agents, servers, switches, firewalls, and VPN gateways. The similarity between the Safe Access and TNC architectures makes it easier for StillSecure to implement the TNC specification. Full support of the specification is expected by the end of 2006.

"StillSecure's membership in the TCG and commitment to the TNC specification are testament to our support of industry standards and organizations that improve the functionality and interoperability of security technologies," said Mitchell Ashley, CTO and VP of Customer Experience at StillSecure. "Through our work with the Trusted Computing Group we're hoping to aid in the development of standards that seamlessly integrate NAC solutions like Safe Access with the rest of the network infrastructure."

"The TNC standards ensure multi-vendor interoperability across a wide variety of endpoints, network technologies, and policies," said Brian Berger, marketing work group chairman, Trusted Computing Group. "Companies like StillSecure who are committed to open architectures understand the value in developing an industry specification that easily enables network access and endpoint integrity."
