Cloakware Partners with Securia to Offer Built-in Software Security, Privileged Password Management across Diverse Markets

    Reseller and Professional Services Agreement Improves Security and
Compliance for Government, Financial and Large Corporate Customers

    VIENNA, VA., March 5 /CNW/ - Cloakware Inc., the security solutions
provider that makes security inseparable from software, announced today that
it has partnered with Securia Ltd., a Canadian-based Value-Added Reseller
(VAR) focused on best of breed security solutions. As a result, Securia is now
an official channel for Cloakware Security Suite, Cloakware Server Password
Manager (CSPM) and all accompanying support services to Canadian-based
government and corporate organizations.

    Securia is Cloakware's fifth channel partner, and first outside the USA.
Cloakware's VAR recruiting program announced in mid-2006 is expanding
distribution to both commercial and government organizations through channel
partners that are trusted and specialized in security solutions and
implementation services.

    With this partnership, Securia rounds out its arsenal of premier security
solutions. Customers can now turn to Securia for automated tools and
techniques that enable developers to protect their application code against
reverse engineering, tampering and automated attacks, as well as the first
commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) product to eliminate risks associated with
passwords hard-coded into applications that reside on unattended servers.

    "Cloakware's security and password management products clearly fit with
our mission of offering companies the most complete and adaptable solutions
possible for protecting and securing information assets," said Securia Ltd.
Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Jean Claude Mercier. "Our
larger clients in particular are very concerned with how to protect their
platforms. Cloakware Security Suite and CSPM products will best help us to
answer those market needs that our clients have clearly identified."

    Commercial and government enterprises all face the common challenge of
how to guard against vulnerabilities inherent in any software platform.
Traditional security solutions, such as perimeter-based offerings or those
that are added on after the application is developed, do not adequately
protect the application itself. Cloakware Security Suite is designed to
address this challenge by building protection in during the development
process. By making security inseparable from the applications it protects,
companies result with a more effective defense against attack.

    A separate security and compliance concern for many organizations is both
the challenge of controlled administrator access to privileged passwords and
the elimination of passwords hard-coded in applications. Cloakware Server
Password Manager provides IT administrators the ability to securely change
server IDs and passwords without having to redistribute the passwords to
developers or maintain the scripts that use them, thus allowing organizations
to complete their ID management and authentication strategies while also
meeting the latest regulatory requirements.

    "Securia is a respected provider of advanced security solutions for
medium-to-large sized Canadian municipalities, financial institutions and
corporations," said David Canellos, Cloakware executive vice president,
worldwide sales. "By adding not only Cloakware Security Suite and CSPM to its
fleet, but also by investing in the training to offer accompanying support
services, Securia is showing a true commitment to providing its customers with
the full benefits of inherent software security and automated password
