Ensure's XyLoc Wireless PC Security Receives RSA Keon-Ready Certification

Ensure Technologies, the award-winning leader in intelligent wireless PC security solutions, today announced that it has partnered with RSA Security Inc. (NASDAQ: RSAS), the most trusted name in e-security as part of its RSA Secured™ Strategic Partner Program. The companies have teamed to support interoperability between Ensure's XyLoc™ wireless PC security solution and RSA Keon® public key infrastructure (PKI) authentication technology.

As part of the RSA Secured program, XyLoc has been awarded "RSA Keon Ready" certification designating its compatibility with RSA Keon products that enable, manage and simplify the use of digital certificates in today's leading business applications. XyLoc will enable organizations implementing RSA Keon solutions the ability to automatically and conveniently control and manage access to the digital certificates throughout an enterprise.

"We welcome Ensure as an RSA Secured strategic partner and we believe XyLoc is an outstanding addition to our roster of partner solutions. XyLoc's automatic log in and 'walk-away' security are highly complementary to the RSA Keon digital certificate solution," said Scott Schnell, senior vice president of marketing at RSA Security. "We look forward to working closely with Ensure to offer customers compelling desktop and network security solutions."

"This is a terrific partnership for Ensure," said George Brostoff, co-founder and president of Ensure Technologies. "Combining the RSA Keon PKI products with our XyLoc full-time access control gives customers an excellent solution. It is an unmatched offering for organizations wanting to deploy digital certificates by enabling them to easily, conveniently and securely implement and enforce the authorized user's access of their PKI infrastructures."

RSA Keon is a family of interoperable, standards-based PKI products designed to manage digital certificates and provide an environment for authenticated, private and legally binding electronic communications and transactions. Whether deployed as a robust, standalone certificate authority or a comprehensive PKI solution, RSA Keon is designed to provide a common foundation for securing Internet and e-business applications.

XyLoc is a patented, centrally managed, automatic computer security solution that prevents unauthorized access to confidential PC-based information, and simultaneously makes access to network services and applications more convenient for authorized employees. XyLoc's full-time access control technology protects sensitive data when it is most vulnerable - after logon, when the authorized user - for whatever reason - steps away from the PC.

Suited for professionals who need easy, yet secure, access to information "on the fly," XyLoc is proximity-activated and completely "hands-free," requiring no user interaction. Because it enables the computer to know automatically and effortlessly who is requesting access to its resources, XyLoc offers security features and flexibility previously unavailable. XyLoc also simplifies PKI implementations and protects digital certificates stored on PCs increasing the security of e-commerce transactions.

Ensure is an associate member of the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG), a group working toward a wireless technology specification that provides links between mobile computers, mobile phones and other portable and handheld devices, and connectivity to the Internet. As more Bluetooth devices come to market, security will become essential to protect these devices from unauthorized access. Using XyLoc's patented technology, network managers can easily load and manage digital certificates on any Bluetooth PC, phone or PDA, which will add powerful security features to Bluetooth devices and appliances.
