IceWEB Broadens Security Offering with on Demand Security Product Suite Powered by Echoworx Technology

    Lists Echoworx Products on GSA Schedule

    TORONTO, Aug. 28 /CNW/ -- IceWEB Inc., (OTC Bulletin Board:   IWEB), the
premier provider of Network Infrastructure Security products and services to
the United States Government has signed an agreement with Echoworx to deliver
subscription based Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions. The first offerings
within IceWEB's new IceSECURE product suite, available September 30th, will be
powered by Echoworx technology and will provide PKI Encrypted Email, Secure
Statements, and Encrypted Message eXchange secure collaboration portal.
IceSECURE is a family of subscription- based product offerings which allow
clients of any size to easily deploy on- demand solutions to meet either short
or longer term security requirements that their business may face.  IceWEB and
Echoworx also announced that the entire Echoworx product offering will be
available to Federal Government Customers via IceWEB's GSA Schedule:
    This offer will concentrate wholly on reducing organizations exposure to
threats which may originate from within their trusted internal networks. Such
internal threats can materialize in the form of:

    (*) Confidential customer data being stolen or transmitted outside of the
      trusted company network.
    (*) Inappropriate communications, content, or activities being transmitted
      from, within, or conducted within or from behind the company firewalls.
    (*) Theft or loss of extremely sensitive information such as business plans,
      proprietary trade secrets, or Senior Management plans.
    (*) Surreptitious monitoring of privileged internal electronic
    (*) Violations of SEC or other regulatory disclosure or data confidentiality
    John R. Signorello, Chairman and CEO of IceWEB Inc., said of the
announcement, "Forget thinking outside of the box, IceWEB will provide
services where the largest risk exists, focused inside the box (the internal,
and though wrongly ... generally trusted network). Most companies and
organizations are so focused on protecting their critical network
infrastructure from the myriad of intrusion, virus, spam, and other externally
originated risks that they miss the warning signs of internal exposures. What
company executive has not wondered if his/her confidential emails to and from
their contemporaries are viewed by their technical staff or some other
malicious third party. What organization has not collectively shivered every
time they see a breaking news story about massive loss of customer account
data? Who among Senior Executives has not thought about the risks to their
organization resulting from unexpected liabilities caused by employee
misconduct and inappropriate behavior? IceSECURE will field on-demand services
and valuable consultative and training offerings to assist organizations, both
public and private in managing, mitigating, and ultimately eliminating those
problem areas."
    "We are very pleased that IceWEB has chosen our product suite for their
growing customer base. IceWEB recognizes the need to expand their existing
managed security services portfolio, and by adding Echoworx products they are
strategically extending their solution set to include managed encryption
applications," said Michael Ginsberg, President and CEO of Echoworx. "When it
comes to security infrastructure, IceWEB understands businesses want to
implement privacy best practices simply, easily and cost effectively.
Encryption applications have become a natural extension of a communication
provider's SaaS messaging suite."
