Trusecure Expands Global Operations into Central America

Additional Services Become Available in Asia Pacific Region; Global Demand for Information Security Services Drives Expansion

HERNDON, Va.–September 4, 2002– TruSecure(R) Corporation, a leading security services provider, today announced its expansion into Central America to address growing worldwide demand for its information security services. In addition, TruSecure Asia Pacific is expanding its suite of service offerings to include TruSecure’s Managed Security Services as well as the Web-based version of its Security Assurance Services. TruSecure, through its Lifecycle Risk Management (LRM) approach, is the only information security services provider that continuously measures, manages and monitors information security risks. TruSecure’s global client base protects more than 700 customer sites worldwide: the expansion furthers TruSecure’s ability to fully support multinational clients.

In a commitment to serve new and existing global customers, TruSecure has established TruSecure Central America, a security assurance and managed security services operation headquartered in Guatemala. TruSecure’s expansion into Central America furthers its worldwide position established in 2000 when the company launched TruSecure Asia Pacific and in 2001 with the launch of TruSecure EMEA.

“TruSecure understands that information security knows no geographic boundaries and impacts companies worldwide,” said Adam Joseph, president and CEO of TruSecure. “Central America is a business region with strong growth potential. TruSecure’s expansion into Central America and extended service offerings in Asia Pacific are a natural progression as we grow operations to meet increased demand for our offerings among global corporations.”

The expansion into Central America is led by Mauricio Nanne, CEO of TruSecure Central America. Nanne is responsible for building the Central America operations as well as developing the infrastructure and support for new customers. In conjunction with the establishment of TruSecure Central America, TruSecure’s Web-based Security Assurance Services are now available to the Central American market as well as Managed Security Services. These services are now also available in Asia Pacific through TruSecure’s offices in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia and Australia.

By integrating disparate security products and processes into a comprehensive risk management program, TruSecure enables companies to achieve greater risk reduction at lower cost. TruSecure helps assure the ongoing security of a corporation’s critical systems and information by providing a comprehensive suite of services — Security Assurances Services, Enhanced Services and Managed Security Services — that help organizations pragmatically manage risk. TruSecure combines a comprehensive framework that intelligently integrates proactive risk reduction strategies with real- time security management technologies.

Security Assurance Services enable companies to centralize the comprehensive management of their enterprise security efforts, delivering superior security management capabilities through an enhanced, world-class Internet dashboard application called the Enterprise Risk Manager (ERM). Real-time updates to TruSecure’s Essential Practices and TruSecure Alerts, accessible through the ERM, enable organizations to effectively manage security in a constantly changing environment. The TruSecure ERM also delivers an accurate enterprise risk assessment and determines the “right level” of security controls by identifying the relationships between networks, devices, applications, people and physical locations. TruSecure Managed Security Services encompass monitoring and management services that enable organizations to proactively protect network investments, reduce risk, and maximize resources to help identify, correct and continuously manage risks to critical systems.

“Central America is a growing market for new businesses and by establishing operations in Central America, TruSecure is demonstrating its commitment to providing information security services that will help companies in the region manage information security risk in a practical and efficient manner,” said Mauricio Nanne, CEO of TruSecure Central America.

“We continue to see tremendous opportunity and a growing demand in the Asia Pacific market for TruSecure’s suite of information security services,” said Pierre Noel, CEO of TruSecure Asia Pacific. “With the availability of Managed Security Services, TruSecure will continue to help corporations in this region cost-effectively manage information security risks.”

Mauricio Nanne brings more than 25 years of computer and IT experience to his role as TruSecure Central America CEO. For the past four years, Nanne has directed the development and implementation of IT security technology and strategy at Sistemas Aplicativos, S.A., the leading provider of information security solutions and systems integration for Guatemala and Central America, and helped bring the company’s security products and services into the Central America marketplace.
