Agreement between Market Leaders Offers Enterprises Comprehensive Security for Sensitive Data

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. And FOXBORO, Mass.—December 18, 2006 — Utimaco - The Data Security Company, and Ingrian® Networks, Inc., the leading provider of data privacy solutions, today announced an agreement to jointly sell and market their security offerings.

Utimaco is now a part of Ingrian’s KeySecure™ Partner Program. Under the agreement, Utimaco and Ingrian will offer solutions to customers that, when combined, will ensure the security of critical data inside applications and databases within the enterprise, in transmission across networks, and in any mobile device—including PCs, laptops, PDAs, and removable storage. Through this partnership, Ingrian and Utimaco will make it even easier for their customers to shore up their most critical security gaps and address the Payment Card Industry (PCI) security standard and a host of other mandates.

“Ingrian and Utimaco have products that meet critical security needs, and consequently they’ve enjoyed the broad customer adoption that has helped them attain leadership positions in their respective markets,” said Ansgar Heinen, Head of Product Marketing, Utimaco. “By partnering and leveraging our core competencies, we can help enterprises address their needs to protect their sensitive data.”

By implementing solutions from Utimaco and Ingrian, organizations can encrypt and secure sensitive information, wherever it resides. Utimaco’s leading SafeGuard® products enable secure mobile computing and protection of electronic business processes. Ingrian DataSecure® Platforms are the only appliance-based encryption solutions available today that feature granular, field-level encryption capabilities and that can be integrated at the Web server, application server, or database layer.

“The reality is that today, sensitive data left unencrypted is vulnerable, whether inside the corporate data center or on mobile devices,” stated Eli Kalil, Vice President of Business Development of Ingrian Networks. “We’re pleased to partner with a market leader like Utimaco to give our joint customers solutions that can provide safeguards against a broad range of real-world threats.”
