Guardian Digital Security Solutions Win Out At Real World Linux
Enterprise Email and Small Business Solutions Impress at Linux Exposition.

Real World Linux Expo, TORONTO, April 15, 2004 -- Guardian Digital, the premier open source security company, today announced that their enterprise solutions were the solutions of choice at the Real World Linux Exposition in Toronto Canada this past week. Internet and network security was a consistent theme and Guardian Digital was on hand with innovative solutions to the most common security issues. Attending to the growing concern for cost-effective security, Guardian Digital's enterprise and small business applications were stand-out successes. Exhibited by Canadian partner Symtrex, a leading provider of secure Internet and network solutions, Guardian Digital's comprehensive security and productivity applications proved to onlookers to incorporate the perfect balance of bulletproof security and robust functionality.

Seemingly in the market for more comprehensive multi-purpose solutions, many expo visitors commended Symtrex and Guardian Digital for offering enterprise-grade applications at a price suitable for small business budgets; leaving Guardian Digital solutions prevailing over many of the single-purpose applications exhibited. Visitors to the Symtrex booth reported that they were specifically impressed by the simplified management components, multi-layered security features, next generation spam and virus protection all available at a price point unmatched by other vendors.

"Incorporating Guardian Digital products into the show this year was a great decision for us. Internet Productivity Suite sparked the interests of price- conscious buyers, with its enterprise-grade security, powerful functionality and budget-friendly price while Secure Mail Suite was a favorite among buyers looking for the best way to protect from email borne viruses and effectively eliminate the influx of spam. Both solutions attracted much attention and received great feedback, furnishing us with many potential customers," said Darryl Conn, vice president of new business development for Symtrex.

Among small business and email solutions offered through Symtrex, visitors were also impressed by the complete portfolio of security and productivity solutions by Guardian Digital. "These solutions combined with the variety of master support services are particularly appealing because they allow organizations to truly build a complete Internet presence from one source with a convenient single point of contact for technical issues," continues Conn. "Through a joint effort with Symtrex, Guardian Digital is proud to be able to deliver our extensive portfolio of applications to the small businesses and large enterprises of Canada. It is through our partnership with our resellers and taking part in events such as this our company is able to exhibit what differentiates us from other Linux vendors. Our concentration on embedded security, ease of management, and quality customer care is what truly makes us unique and why we continuously gain the recommendation of resellers and existing customers," states Dave Wreski, CEO of Guardian Digital, Inc.
