Snapgear and Zone Labs Team to Offer Internet Security Solution for Home and Office Networks

Partnership Brings State of the Art Protection at an Affordable Price to Small Business, SOHO and Small Enterprise Users

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – June 24th, 2003 – SnapGear(R) Inc., a leading supplier of Internet security products and custom design solutions, and Zone Labs(R), Inc., a leading creator of endpoint security solutions, today announced that the entire line of SnapGear firewall/VPN appliances will ship with Zone Labs’ award-winning Internet security solution, ZoneAlarm(R) Pro.

“Many businesses are looking for a solution to provide secure remote access to sensitive corporate networks from remote personal computers,” said Miles Gillham, VP of Marketing with SnapGear. “Our partnership with Zone Labs offers customers a cost-effective and robust VPN security system that prevents unauthorized remote connections to our core VPN products. Only computers registered as being protected by ZoneAlarm Pro will have access through the new joint offering.”

Zone Labs’ award-winning ZoneAlarm Pro combines the strongest security, ease of use and powerful online privacy protection to guard Internet-connected PCs against hacker attacks and other invasions of privacy. The SnapGear/Zone Labs solution strengthens the security of each PC connected via SnapGear against security threats by stopping hackers searching for back-door entry to sensitive data.

“Internet security is top-of-mind with consumers and businesses today, and rightfully so,” said Paul Weinstein, vice president, strategic alliances, Zone Labs. “Zone Labs’ partnership with SnapGear offers customers the freedom of remote access without compromising the security of their PC or their network. It is now possible to build complex corporate and branch and home network infrastructure, with enterprise-grade security, at highly affordable price points.”

ZoneAlarm Pro delivers strong security features such as a personal ‘stealth mode’ firewall to shield the PC from unauthorized entry, Program Control to prevent Trojan horses and Spyware from stealing users’ information via unauthorized communications with the Internet, as well as simple set-up for networks, including wireless networks. In addition, ZoneAlarm Pro guards against email-borne Internet threats by identifying and quarantining suspicious email attachments, even during the initial stages of an outbreak before anti-virus updates are available.

The award-winning SnapGear product line provides a scalable range of dynamic firewall VPN appliances for use in SOHO and SMB/SME environments. All SnapGear products support full IPSec and PPTP VPN technology. For IPSec both 3DES and AES 256-bit encryption standards are supported to provide the highest levels of security and interoperability with other leading vendors. The “soft center” of corporate networks is also protected by the new SnapGear PCI630 firewall/VPN PCI NIC, allowing servers and even desktop to enjoy 100Mbps network throughput, stateful firewall protection, and transparent VPN tunneling independent of host computer operating system.

The joint SnapGear/Zone Labs solution will be available from SnapGear in the late summer of 2003.
