Voltage Revolutionizes Email Security With New Managed Service Offering

Voltage Security Network Brings Award-Winning Ease of Use to Millions of Small Businesses and Individuals

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 5, 2007 -- RSA Conference 2007 -- Voltage Security, Inc. (, a global leader in enterprise privacy management, today introduced the Voltage Security Network™ (VSN™), a compelling new software-as-a-service (SAAS) solution. The VSN revolutionizes email security by breaking the barriers to widespread adoption of email encryption through the introduction of a proven, easy-to-use solution for the millions of non-technical email users. This service offering addresses an imperative need for individuals and small businesses to protect sensitive communications without extensive training or costs.

Previously, individuals and small businesses were forced to select between web-based secure email services that forced them to relinquish control over storage or desktop-based secure email systems that required extensive key management and recipient-side software. With the introduction of VSN, these barriers to secure communication are a thing of the past. VSN enables this large user base to communicate securely while storing secure emails in their own inbox, downloading and setting-up within five minutes and communicating with anyone, anywhere without the need for recipient-side software.

"As an independent insurance brokerage, the ability to conduct our business depends on transmitting sensitive information via email. As a trusted business partner to numerous HIPAA covered entities, we needed to find a method for ensuring these communications were secured without extensive training or complexity," said Mike Radakovich, owner/principal at KBI Benefits. "After looking carefully at available products on the market, the Voltage Security Network was the only solution that met our needs. We were using VSN within 5 minutes, without having to learn about the complexities of generating keys, certificates, directories or going through any kind of extensive training. After having negative experiences with every other email encryption solution, my partners can't believe how easy it is to receive and respond to encrypted emails."

The VSN arrives at a critical time for businesses and consumers alike. According to The Radicati Group, there are about 1.1 billion email users worldwide, making it the most prevalent communications medium on the planet. However, due to the lack of "made for the masses" email encryption, millions of users and businesses seeking secure email options that maintain personal privacy and corporate compliance with PCI, HIPAA, GLBA and other regulatory mandates have had limited options to fulfill their needs.

The VSN solves serious barriers to email security and enables a revolution in simplicity, usability and low cost of ownership. For example:

--  Instead of forcing employees, partners and customers to learn how to
    set up and use complex secure email encryption products from other vendors,
    or to create a separate location for secure messages, the VSN is
    immediately usable by anyone within their existing email environments --
    and there's no requirement to download, learn, manage or administer.
--  Instead of forcing users to join static, self-contained communities,
    the VSN enables dynamic, interconnected business networks to be created on
    the fly as well as easy peer-to-peer secure communications.
--  Instead of forcing users to create lookup directories, and store keys
    and credentials, the VSN eliminates these burdens and generates keys
    dynamically and automatically as needed.
--  Instead of forcing users to embrace pre-registration of recipients,
    the VSN provides automatic provisioning on demand.
The Voltage Security Network leverages the power of Voltage SecureMail to make this award-winning enterprise solution available to everyone. Three unique suites of services are available to address the needs of individuals, small businesses, and the enterprise:
--  VSN for Business Professionals: Individual users leverage low-cost
    subscriptions to the Voltage Security Network
--  VSN for Small Business: Small business offerings include group desktop
    licenses, or the ability to perform automated, policy based encryption
    through the Voltage Security and Code Green Networks integrated solution
    [Editors Note: Please see Code Green Networks release 'Voltage Security and
    Code Green Networks Team Up to Deliver Comprehensive Content Protection and
    Email Encryption as a Service in One Easy to Use Package']
--  VSN for the Enterprise: Enterprises now have the ability to extend
    Voltage SecureMail to their large business networks with no added
    provisioning costs or liability for partner communications. Value added
    services include customized branding, policies and external user
Demand for secure managed services is growing rapidly. International Data Corp. projects that the U.S. market for such services will expand at a compound annual rate approaching 20 percent through 2009, growing from $1.5 billion in 2007 to $2.2 billion in 2009. In addition, the Gartner Group estimates the market for "community of trust" services and technology will grow to $10 billion by 2012 (.8 probability).

"There is enormous demand from customers of all sizes to extend secure communication throughout their business networks in a turnkey, cost-effective, and scalable manner," said Sathvik Krishnamurthy, president and CEO of Voltage. "VSN delivers on these critical requirements without requiring any premise-based software to be installed, and thus extends the reach of our award-winning technology to the millions of small businesses and individuals that have been struggling to find a solution that doesn't require awkward set-up or training. By automatically federating with our enterprise customers, users of VSN can transparently communicate with the largest of companies in the world as an immediate benefit from being part of the network."
