Wipro to Sell SafeBoot Mobile Data Security Solutions

Partnership Brings Added Value to Customers and Enhances SafeBoot's Distribution Channel

NAPLES, FL--(Marketwire - September 6, 2007) - SafeBoot, a leading vendor of enterprise-class security software for the protection of data on laptops and other mobile devices, today announced its partnership with Wipro Technologies, the Global IT Services Division of Wipro Limited (NYSE: WIT). The partnership adds SafeBoot's mobile data security solutions to Wipro's data privacy and encryption solutions services, allowing Wipro customers to meet data security and regulatory requirements using cost effective, highly adaptive and user-friendly data security solutions.

Organizations today are focusing on meeting regulatory requirements, ensuring protection of personal and private data, complying with internal security policies, remediating security issues, and are more deeply evaluating the risk around their most critical asset in the enterprise -- intellectual property. Due to the large number of endpoints that need to be protected, along with the massive amount of data at rest and in motion, organizations are finding that protecting endpoints is growing increasingly difficult. Organizations need to take action now by implementing endpoint data protection controls, to not only gain visibility, but also to reduce the risk of a compliance failure and the loss of intellectual property.

"Once an endpoint data protection solution is successfully implemented, organizations will realize a positive impact on day-to-day operations while also improving their security posture," said Prasenjit Saha, vice president, Wipro Enterprise Security Solutions. "The addition of the SafeBoot family of products allows us to serve the security needs of our customers with renewed vigor -- providing them with industry leading data encryption solutions and the support they trust."

Wipro's Enterprise Security Solutions (ESS) practice is a leading provider of end-to-end security solutions that streamline security technologies and management processes to help mitigate the security risks associated with enterprises. Wipro's ESS has a dedicated practice for Data Privacy & Protection solutions to help organizations revamp their data protection posture to protect their brand, retain customer confidence and achieve compliance with regulatory needs.

"The Wipro partnership brings added value and increased benefits to organizations concerned with protecting company data," said SafeBoot Vice President of International Sales, Siebe de Graad. "Customers can leverage SafeBoot's highly scalable mobile data security solutions with Wipro's capabilities of addressing large and complex project implementations, complemented with their deep understanding of data security," added Siebe de Graad.
