Secure Mail Suite Available with New Version of Award Winning Secure Linux Operating System

Waldwick, New Jersey - March 3, 2003 - Guardian Digital, Inc., the leading open source security company, today announced the availability of the Guardian Digital Secure Mail Suite, the industry's most secure and cost-effective email platform. Designed to meet the needs of small businesses, enterprise level companies, ISPs and ASPs looking to secure and manage corporate email operations, Secure Mail Suite is capable of managing all email functions within an organization. The suite increases employee productivity by simplifying management and drastically reducing junk mail, virus and Internet threats. Secure Mail Suite is currently available with Guardian Digital's EnGarde Secure Linux v1.5, the newest version of the company's award winning secure Linux server operating system.

"Guardian Digital is unique because its products are built with open source code," said Bill Claybrook, research director, UNIX and Linux, Aberdeen Group. "While many believe this makes the product insecure, it in fact makes it more secure since many more developers are on the lookout for potential security breaches. For companies looking to implement a secure system at a fraction of the cost, Guardian Digital offers a solid option."

Through its use of advanced access control and authentication mechanisms, comprehensive auditing and reporting features, as well as encrypted communications facilities, Secure Mail Suite delivers protection from constantly evolving online threats for both internal and external mail systems.

"The perils relating to enabling email and Internet connectivity in the workplace have increased over recent years, so the need to quickly secure our corporate network and email became a high priority for us," said Lars Baan, vice president of operations at Aalborg Instruments. "Guardian Digital carefully reviewed our security needs and implemented their cutting-edge technology rapidly and for a fraction of the cost of comparable solutions. The security suite is very stable, reliable and requires almost no administration. We now have excellent control of our email and network security, and Guardian Digital's customer support has been truly outstanding!"

"Secure Mail Suite is the most secure and cost effective option for companies looking to eliminate junk mail and manage everyday threats from viruses that will bring the productivity levels of unsuspecting individual's to a screeching halt," said Dave Wreski, CEO of Guardian Digital, Inc. "Our mission is to continue providing companies with robust Linux-based products that are not only cost effective but also offer the highest levels of security, scalability and ease-of-management."
