Stronghold Security Arm Showing Strong Sales Performance

Work in Progress and Sales Show Double Digit Increases

SANTA MONICA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 19, 2007 -- Stronghold Industries, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SGDS), a Southern California-based premium intelligent home provider, today provided its shareholders with an update on the current performance of its residential security unit, Moore Protection Inc.

In an informal communication with a major shareholder dated March 16, 2007, Stronghold's President Tony Breeden, JD stated: "...The Moore Protection name is becoming synonymous with high quality and world-class customer service in the most affluent areas of Los Angeles. We are pleased that this strong reputation in the market is now starting to be reflected in its financial performance. Moore Protection revenue has grown by 35% so far this year, and gross margins have increased substantially. More importantly, they have generated a backlog of contracts in progress worth over $200,000, which is roughly double their year-to-date performance in 2006."

"The new home automation technology in the Elk security system is now outselling the more traditional alarm systems by a factor of almost two to one, and camera system sales remain brisk. The relationship with SSA Security Group remains strong, but there are no new milestones to report... Don Moore and his team are also in the planning stage of a new, very large project for a 'household name' in the Music industry. As always, we can't divulge names, but I guarantee that you have owned the music by his group since you were a kid..." said Breeden.

"...The phone is ringing off the hook. Moore is bursting at the seams with new activity and it is exciting to be a part of their growth..." added Breeden.
