Voltage Security Provides Advanced Email Security for IBM Lotus Notes

Voltage SecureMail Integrates With Lotus Notes to Deliver Unprecedented Simplicity to Users

ORLANDO, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 22, 2007 -- Lotusphere -- Voltage Security, Inc. (www.voltage.com), a global leader in enterprise privacy management, today announced the availability of Voltage SecureMail™ for IBM Lotus Notes. Voltage SecureMail for Lotus Notes enhances secure communication outside corporate walls with advanced features that enable trusted ad-hoc business-to-consumer (B2C) and business-to-business (B2B) communications.

Lotus Notes is widely recognized as the first email solution to incorporate encryption, with support for Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) in 1989. Voltage builds upon its tradition of strong security by bringing easy-to-use, easy-to-manage secure email to users. Leveraging the breakthrough technology known as Identity-Based Encryption (IBE), users can now communicate securely with anyone outside their own company.

With the addition of Voltage SecureMail, enterprises using Lotus Notes can enable new communications channels with customers and business partners that were once blocked by security, online fraud and identity theft concerns. Voltage SecureMail enabled solutions include electronic statement delivery, customer service, patient care and critical global business communications.

"Voltage Security is pleased to extend and strengthen trusted collaboration for Lotus Notes," said Wasim Ahmad, vice president of Marketing, Voltage Security. "Voltage SecureMail for Lotus Notes builds upon Lotus' market leading capabilities to ensure that the barriers to communicating sensitive information electronically are a thing of the past. Our market-leading capabilities not only enable new communication channels, but also demonstrate the trusted nature of the enterprise to customers and partners."

Voltage SecureMail works alongside the native encryption capabilities in Lotus Notes and utilizes IBE, which drastically reduces the complexity and administration of secure email. With Voltage IBE-based email encryption, organizations obtain trusted and secure communications with as little as a 0.1 full-time employee resource for administration. The technical advantages of Voltage IBE include immediate ad-hoc messaging with anyone, anywhere, and secure key management in addition to automatic expiration and re-generation of keys.

What is Voltage SecureMail

Voltage SecureMail is the first secure encrypted email solution that makes secure ad-hoc business communication as easy as traditional, non-encrypted messaging.

Voltage SecureMail enables users to send secure encrypted email, ad-hoc business communication such as financial statements, patient health information (PHI), and sensitive communication regarding intellectual property or Personal Account Numbers that require encryption under the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI). Utilizing Identity-Based Encryption Voltage Security solutions provide clear benefits over traditional approaches to security:

--  Lowest operational impact of any secure email solution
--  Centralized administration and reporting
--  Economical extension of Voltage SecureMail to multiple brands and
    policies
--  Collaborative, graphics rich environment simplifies customization and
    branding
--  No new directories or resources required to manage the system;
    elimination of certificates leads to low system overhead
--  Fully stateless operation
--  Full online and offline usage
--  Highly scalable end-to-end architecture, including efficient key
    generation, key management, encryption and enrollment
    
About Voltage Identity-Based Encryption

Voltage IBE™ is a public key cryptography system that uses common identities (such as an email address or screen name) as public keys, eliminating the need for certificates, Certificate Revocation Lists (CRL) and other costly infrastructure. Voltage IBE results in a solution that is easy to implement and easy to manage, without the overhead and cost inherent in traditional security solutions. Voltage IBE is ideal for use with financial services customers and medical patients who expect communication to be kept private and secure and also want ease-of-use and low-cost. Voltage IBE solutions are:

--  Easy to implement and easy to manage - eliminates the overhead and
    costs inherent in traditional security solutions such as PKI.
--  Highly scalable - no storage of keys or messages, and no need to
    contact online servers; allows the solution to scale dramatically without
    the need for additional infrastructure.
--  Easy to use - no need for end users to worry about keys, certificates
    or multiple inboxes.
