SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif. (April 25, 2006) - SurfControl (LSE: SRF), the global leader in Internet protection, today announced that its award-winning family of solutions has been dramatically enhanced to provide around-the-clock protection for all points of Internet content vulnerability. SurfControl’s leading edge technology places organizations in control of their bi-directional content flow over the Internet and ensures the integrity of their mission-critical business information and communications.

“We looked for best-of-breed vendors for our content filtering needs and found only two,” said John Prokap, Information Security Manager, Visiting Nurse Service of New York. “SurfControl enabled us to develop more of a partnership with them as opposed to the ‘pay us this now, pay us later, pay us some more’ philosophy of the competing vendor.”

SurfControl’s solutions support robust internal policy enforcement and increased business compliance through flexible policy definition and management capabilities, in-depth reporting features and granular visibility into Internet activity. Further, customizable control of Internet and local network, USB and disk drive use and access enables real-time reporting.

Web Protection: SurfControl Mobile Filter – Unparalleled visibility and control over remote worker Internet use.

Desktop Protection: SurfControl Enterprise Threat Shield (ETS) – Fully self-contained agent capable of enforcing policy with disconnected users, automatic detection of application variants, detects, and prevents and removes files from the network if disallowed.

SurfControl products are powered by dynamically updated databases that are continuously updated and maintained by SurfControl’s Adaptive Threat Intelligence™ (ATI) Service. The SurfControl ATI Service combines 24/7 research and analysis from the company’s global team of threat detection experts with advanced AI technologies and the world’s most comprehensive threat databases.

In addition to SurfControl’s comprehensive approach to safeguarding business integrity and compliance, a complete suite of business support services has been added that includes deployment optimization services and 24/7 “follow the sun” technical support with new flexibility and price points tailored to individual customer needs.

“Companies today are faced with increasingly malicious and sophisticated threats that wreak havoc on both business compliance and integrity,” said Patricia Sueltz, CEO of SurfControl. “At the same time, global organizations continue to call for more customizable and detailed internal controls.
