Kavado Announces Migration Path For Users Of Former Sanctum Products

London-July 28, 2004-Kavado Inc., the leader in Web application security solutions, today announced the “Sanctum UnDo” migration program for customers of Sanctum’s AppScan Web application assessment and AppShield application firewall products. This program provides a path to upgrade from Sanctum’s point products to Kavado’s integrated Web application security suite.

Responding to concerns and uncertainty within the IT community regarding the viability of AppScan and AppShield following Sanctum’s acquisition by Watchfire, Kavado is offering a package of products and services to accomplish the transition to the latest generation of Web application security in hours. AppShield customers can trade-up to Kavado’s InterDo Web application firewall-winner of InfoWorld’s “Technology of the Year” for Best Application Security Product-without having to replace their existing infrastructure. Similarly, AppScan Web application scanner customers can trade-up to ScanDo, which won the 2004 Crossroads A-list Award for “delivering business value today.”

A unique feature included in Kavado’s AppShield trade-up offer is a policy migration tool that captures existing security knowledge by converting AppShield policies into InterDo security policies. This provides immediate and accurate real-time security for ongoing protection of Web applications.

“With Web applications delivering unprecedented business flexibility, but also a comparable level of security risk, corporations need to work with market leaders that are focused on their unique challenges,” said Vikram Desai, Kavado’s President and CEO. “This offer falls on the heels of six months of tremendous growth for Kavado: our demonstrated sales momentum in key vertical industries such as financial services, government and pharmaceuticals, combined with a strategic road map for our core product suite, and a new seasoned leadership team, validate Kavado’s commitment to meeting our customers’ security requirements.”

Kavado is offering Sanctum customers aggressive incentive prices, which will vary depending on when they purchased AppShield or AppScan. Kavado is also offering free migration assistance and training during the implementation process.
