Secure Computing Delivers Security Gateway Virtual Appliances for VMware Environments

SAN JOSE, CA, Apr 29, 2008 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX News Network) -- Secure Computing Corporation (NASDAQ: SCUR), a leading enterprise gateway security company, today announced it is working with VMware to provide customers with security gateway virtual appliances for organizations of all sizes. These security gateway appliances for VMware environments will provide customers with an easy way to implement and manage security for multiple virtual machines, or multiple applications within a virtual machine, through a single gateway. This enables customers to capitalize on the business benefits of VMware virtualization -- such as reduced capital and operating expenses, assured business continuity and a "greener" carbon footprint -- while ensuring security across the datacenter in ways not possible in a physical environment.

According to leading research firm Gartner Inc.'s report "Virtualization Changes Virtually Everything" (by Philip Dawson and Thomas J. Bittman, March 28, 2008), "Virtualization is the highest-impact trend changing infrastructure and operations through 2012. It will change how you manage, how and what you buy, how you deploy, how you plan and how you charge."

Through its relationship with VMware, all of Secure Computing's security gateway appliances can be deployed as preconfigured virtual appliances onto new or existing hardware without the cost and space required of traditional security implementations. Customers can deploy different Secure Computing appliances, each on its own virtual machine, on a single server.
