St. Bernard Rolls Out New Appliance

SAN DIEGO -- St. Bernard Software, Inc. (OTCBB:
SBSW), a global provider of security appliances and on-demand solutions, including secure content management, archiving and collaboration, today announced the availability of its newest dedicated Web filtering appliance, the iPrism M11000. The M11000 features significant performance increases that allow iPrism to meet the demands of large and mid-size enterprises.

In addition, St. Bernard announced the availability of a major software upgrade, version 5.0, for all iPrism appliances. Version 5.0 includes many new features that improve filtering accuracy and make the appliances easier to administrate. For example, the new Safe Search feature ensures that inappropriate Web content cannot be viewed in thumbnails generated by Google search engine results, while Delegated Administration allows larger organizations to separate policy-setting responsibility (by the HR or Legal department), from technical administration by the IT department.

Designed for companies, schools, and government agencies with large and demanding Web use, the iPrism M11000 is a high-powered appliance that provides 80% performance improvement over the existing iPrism M3100 appliance. This capacity increase reduces the need for customers to cluster multiple appliances, which provides easier administration and reduced time spent on maintenance.

"All of our customers have indicated that the use of HTTP, IM and P2P on their networks is increasing, and that they need both the control that iPrism provides and the higher capacity that our new model provides," said Andrew Lochart, vice president of marketing at St. Bernard. "To support this requirement, St. Bernard is introducing new, high-end appliances that are specifically designed for speed while upgrading our software to provide features that large organizations need, such as delegated administration."
