London, UK, 15 January 2008 -- Protegrity Corporation, a provider of data security management solutions, today releases the newest version of the industry’s most comprehensive security product: Defiance Security Software Suite 4.4.

The release extends Protegrity’s enterprise data security solution with dozens of new and enhanced features that make it easier to comply with Payment Card Industry (PCI) regulations by providing out-of-the-box PCI reports, support for an even greater number of platforms found in the typical enterprise, and rapid, seamless integration with existing systems, policies and processes.

The Defiance Security Suite is engineered to meet the needs of retailers’ high-volume, data intensive business, as well as the requirements of other industries. It is focused on securing data in a manner that meets security obligations within the context of operational business requirements.

"Complying with PCI regulations is a critical business issue for any organisation accepting credit cards. However, an alarming number of companies are non-compliant,” says Gordon Rapkin, CEO of Protegrity. “The latest release of Protegrity’s Defiance Suite provides help to those companies in the form of a function-rich, easy-to-deploy and use solution tailor-made to provide data security that complies with both PCI and multiple other regulations.”

New and enhanced functionality in the Defiance Security Suite includes:

· Enterprise-wide security coverage with new platform support for Windows Server 2003 and HPUX on Itanium and expanded support for UNIX/Linux

· Minimised impact to existing systems and processes resulting from zero downtime initial encryption
