SWAT Hires Greg Milan as Vice President of Sales

Milan Brings Sales Leadership and Product Development Experience to SWAT, a Leading Provider of High-Tech Security Solutions and Services

WESTMINSTER, CO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 7, 2007 -- Security With Advanced Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWAT) (NASDAQ: SWATW) today announced that it hired Greg Milan as vice president of sales.

Milan is responsible for leading the team supporting SWAT's expanding offering of security solutions. SWAT is a leading provider of mission-critical security products and services, which include non-lethal personal protection devices, tactical training, surveillance and intrusion detection systems and mobile digital video surveillance solutions. SWAT's products and services are designed for government agencies, military and law enforcement, in addition to transportation, commercial facilities and non-lethal personal protection segments.

"Greg is a tremendous asset to SWAT, a company powered by technology, because he has a unique understanding of technology and product development," said Scott Sutton, president of SWAT. "He brings experience that will help SWAT develop new products, leverage the newest technologies and create winning sales and marketing strategies for new product lines."

SWAT's Avurt division is planning to launch a new line of non-lethal personal protection products in early 2007, and Milan will be instrumental in overseeing the sales strategy for this and other new product launches. The non-lethal personal protection industry is a $15 billion-a-year market. Because Avurt's non-lethal personal protection devices are SWAT's first offering for the consumer marketplace, it was important for SWAT to hire a sales leader with a strong background in a number of strategic areas, including sales, business development and product management. In addition to Avurt, Milan will oversee the product sales strategies and sales staff for SWAT's other divisions, which include Veritas Tactical, Vizer and ShiftWatch®.

Prior to joining SWAT, Milan was director of business development for Syncroness, Inc., a global product development outsourcing firm specialized in engineering product design. There, he spearheaded product development and engineering solutions for clients in the medical, aerospace, consumer and industrial fields. His sales leadership resulted in growing Syncroness' revenues by nearly 300 percent over three years, while at the same time exceeding his clients' expectations. Milan has also previously served in leadership roles in sales, manufacturing and product development at MK Technologies, Rand Worldwide, General Mills and Johnson & Johnson. Milan earned his bachelor's degree from Michigan State University.

SWAT: About the Divisions

Avurt distributes and produces non-lethal personal protection devices and compliance products currently in use by federal and state agencies. The new devices, when completed, will be laser aimed and fire a projectile up to 60 feet away that breaks on impact dispersing a cloud of potent pepper-based powder causing a severe debilitating reaction in the target area, effective on most humans and animals.

Veritas Tactical creates innovative training systems and tools to increase the quality of training worldwide for law enforcement, militaries, both private and government, and civilians while decreasing their potential liability and saving lives. The company's credo is "Progressive solutions for impossible situations." Veritas Tactical's product development team is bringing new training tools to market in 2007 to change the face of training.
