Voltage Security Selected as a Red Herring Top 100 company

Voltage's Breakthrough Solutions for Enterprise Privacy Management Recognized for Innovation and Success by Red Herring Editors

BELMONT, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 11, 2005 -- Voltage Security, (, a global leader in enterprise privacy management, today announced that it has been named one of the Red Herring 100 Private Companies of North America.

"Five years after the dot-com bubble burst, innovation and entrepreneurship are thriving. The companies on this list are proof," said Red Herring editor-in-chief Joel Dreyfuss.

"Voltage Security's enterprise privacy management solutions lead the way for financial, healthcare, pharmaceutical and government customers to manage the privacy of information flowing into and out of their organizations," said Sathvik Krishnamurthy, president and CEO of Voltage Security. "Compliance regulations and the impact of privacy breaches are driving companies to put in place solutions for policy-based secure business communication that are easy to use and manage -- especially for end users."

Voltage Security products and services feature breakthrough technology called Identity-Based Encryption ( or IBE. IBE greatly simplifies the process of protecting private digital communications by using a common identity, such as an email address, as a public key. Unlike traditional PKI encryption systems, with IBE, no certificates need to be managed and no pre-enrollment in the system is required. Voltage solutions typically require no end-user training, can be easily managed by central administration and can provide policy-based encryption from the "edge of the network" for a totally automated solution.

Red Herring's lists of private companies are an important part of the magazine's tradition of identifying new and innovative technology companies and entrepreneurs. Companies like Google and eBay were spotted in their early days by Red Herring editors as those that would change the way we live and work.

Red Herring's editorial staff rigorously evaluated more than 900 private companies through a careful analysis of financial data and subjective criteria, including quality of management, execution of strategy, and dedication to research and development. Red Herring 100 companies will be presenting their business model and strategy at the Red Herring Spring conference. Red Herring Spring will take place May 17-19 at the Monterey Plaza Hotel in Monterey, California.
