StillSecure's New Alliance Partner Program Provides Channel Partners With High-Margins and Recurring Revenue in the Network Security Market

Data Centers, VARs, MSPs, and Consultants Leverage One Vendor for Network Security Products and Managed Security Solutions

SUPERIOR, CO--(Marketwire - April 13, 2009) - StillSecure®, provider of comprehensive network security products and services, today announced the StillSecure Alliance Partner Program™, a new channel program that enables data center operators, collocation providers, systems integrators, VARs, consultants, and managed service providers (MSPs) to increase their market opportunity and revenue potential. In addition to the over 100 existing StillSecure channel partners, three new channel partners helped kick off the new program, including BlueBridge Networks, LLC, NopSec, Inc., and GBprotect, Inc.

The StillSecure Alliance Partner Program includes three partnership levels:

--  Powered by ProtectPoint™ -- Gives data centers, collocation
    facilities, and MSPs the ability to earn recurring revenue by providing a
    fully managed security solution without the infrastructure outlays normally
    associated with becoming a managed security solutions provider (MSSP).
    StillSecure's ProtectPoint offering provides the support structure through
    a SAS-70 Type II audited Security Operations Center (SOC) that's staffed
    with security experts around the clock.
--  Platinum Alliance -- Designed for resellers and systems integrators
    with the infrastructure and resources to sell, implement, and support
    StillSecure's network security products. Partners leverage deep discounts
    and opportunities for professional services in the areas of network access
    control (NAC), intrusion detection/prevention (IDS/IPS), and vulnerability
    management. Sales and technical certification training ensures that
    partners are properly armed for success.
--  Gold Alliance -- A lead referral program ideal for consultants,
    systems integrators and Quality Security Assessors (QSAs) that are eager to
    assist their customers with network security needs but do not have the time
    or expertise to provide sales and support services. Partners market the
    full line of StillSecure products and managed security services and receive
    a commission once the sale has closed.
    

"As a Powered by ProtectPoint partner, StillSecure makes it easy to add managed security services to our portfolio without requiring any upgrades to or additional investments to our infrastructure," said Jeff Levine, CEO of BlueBridge Networks, LLC. "Their PartnerVision portal allows us to easily track new opportunities as well as keep a close eye on customers' implementation status and any new opportunities that may arise. They've really made it easy to better serve our customers."

"StillSecure is one of the few security vendors that offers such a wide array of products and services that are best-of-breed in their respective categories," said Michelangelo Sidagni, Partner & CTO, NopSec, Inc. "Through this partnership we can work directly with our customers to determine the most cost-effective options for addressing their security needs based on their specific challenges and network environment."

StillSecure products and services provide the foundation for a comprehensive layered security solution. The company's product line includes StillSecure Safe Access®, a network access control (NAC) solution; StillSecure Strata Guard®, an intrusion detection/prevention system (IDS/IPS); and StillSecure VAM®, a vulnerability management system. StillSecure's ProtectPoint managed security services include firewall, IDS/IPS, VPN, anti-spam, anti-virus, and content filtering, which are all backed by a SAS-70 Type II audited Security Operations Center (SOC) staffed with security experts 24x7x365.

"Our newly expanded partner program builds strong, mutually beneficial relationships by delivering rock-solid, highly profitable security solutions that can be delivered as hardware, software, or service," said Alan Shimel, Chief Strategy Officer of StillSecure. "Whether you're a 50,000 square foot data center or an independent network consultant, our products and services provide the flexibility required to easily and cost-effectively implement network security, no matter what the customer requirements and infrastructure set-up look like."
