Integration of Three Pillars Remote Management and Monitoring Completes
Suite of Comprehensive Information Security Services

London, UK - 22 April 2002-TruSecure (R) Corporation, a leading managed
security services provider, today unveiled its comprehensive business
strategy that enables organisations to adopt a more holistic approach to
information security. Called Lifecycle Risk Management (LRM), the strategy
brings together technologies, expert support and real-time intelligence that
address all the essential phases and processes of information risk
management. TruSecure now offers the only integrated, enterprise-scale
programs that allow organisations to build and assure a continuously
effective security posture. By integrating proactive risk mitigation
programs with real-time managed security services, TruSecure can provide
unprecedented value to companies working to secure business-critical
information across large, complex enterprise systems.

"This integration of resources creates unmatched synergies in managing
security risk," said Adam Joseph, president and CEO of TruSecure. "We can
link the research and analytical processes behind our renowned preventative
security assurance programs with real-time security management and
monitoring technologies. This combination provides tremendous advantages in
providing more dynamic preventative risk reduction and more intelligent
system monitoring. TruSecure will be the first place organisations go to
seek a trusted security partner."

In January, TruSecure acquired Three Pillars' remote management and
monitoring services. With the integration of Three Pillars services into
TruSecure's industry-leading risk mitigation and security assurance
services, TruSecure becomes the only managed security services provider
(MSSP) that continuously measures, manages and monitors information security
risks. TruSecure's robust, multi-disciplined approach maximises return on
security investment for companies in two ways: by dramatically reducing the
number of successful attacks and improving the productivity of the people,
products and technology already in place.

"We did an exhaustive search of MSSPs and selected Three Pillars. It was
the only company that did monitoring tailored to the specific firewall and
IDS we had deployed, as well as hardware implementation and remote
management," said Jeff Nigriny, information systems security manager of
Exostar, a trading exchange for the aerospace and defence industry. "We were
excited when TruSecure acquired Three Pillars as we gained access to
expertise that has allowed us to truly start to leverage our security as a
selling point to Exostar's customers. We have found that TruSecure is an
information security partner, not just a vendor."

"The acquisition of Three Pillars has facilitated TruSecure's execution on
its vision to offer a portfolio of integrated security services," said Allan
Carey, senior analyst at IDC. "The modularised nature of TruSecure's
services enables customers to flexibly build a security program based on
their diverse requirements. Additionally, the company's fixed price,
solutions-based approach to security assurance allows organisations to
benefit from a program that focuses not just on identifying threats or
vulnerabilities, but on the cost of mitigating threats and vulnerabilities."

TruSecure's LRM brings together technologies, expert support and real-time
intelligence that address all the essential phases and processes of
information risk management:

MEASURE risks to critical information assets

- Identify critical data, networks, applications, devices, users

- Create detailed asset inventory

- Assess and prioritise risks

MANAGE risks with comprehensive security program

- Create multi-disciplined risk reduction plan

- Drive implementation with expert support

- Validate successful risk mitigation

- Defend networks with outsourced real-time security systems

MONITOR risks and respond to threats

- Track, analyse and alert for emerging security risks

- Provide ongoing risk analysis and mitigation support

- Report compliance with essential security standards

- Monitor network 24/7 and respond to real-time threats

This layered approach to comprehensive security provides the essential
security foundation for companies that need to protect their information
assets and modularised services for those organisations that have additional
needs. This gives customers a complete range of security services that span
the development of security architecture and policies, the implementation of
a comprehensive preventative risk management program, and now the
management, maintenance and real-time monitoring of critical security

The company also announced today TruSecure 5.0, the next evolutionary step
for companies wanting to centrally and comprehensively manage their
enterprise security efforts. TruSecure 5.0 boasts a significantly enhanced
Enterprise Risk Manager (ERM), an Internet dashboard application for
real-time assessment and management of a company's enterprise security
posture. Real-time updates to TruSecure's essential security practices and
alerts, accessible through the ERM, enable organisations to effectively
manage security in a constantly changing environment. The new TruSecure ERM
also delivers robust capabilities for task and asset management, progress
tracking and detailed reporting against regulatory requirements. To see the
