nCircle Announces Environmentally Responsible Security Appliances

    Appliances Comply with RoHS and WEEE Environmental Directives

    SAN FRANCISCO, June 13 /CNW/ -- nCircle, the leading provider of
agentless security risk and compliance management solutions, today confirmed
compliance with the stringent RoHS and WEEE environmental directives. The new
appliances utilize more environmentally responsible internal components and
fully comply with both European Directive 2002/95/EC, also known as the
Restriction of Hazardous Substances or "RoHS" directive, and European
Directive 2002/96/EC, also known as Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment
    (Logo: )
    The RoHS directive requires the elimination of certain harmful
substances, such as lead and mercury, from electronic equipment, while the
WEEE directive is intended to reduce the waste arising from electrical and
electronic equipment through planned recycling. nCircle security risk and
compliance management solutions are designed for the enterprise and delivered
on a multi-tier appliance architecture. Internal components of the nCircle
appliances have been upgraded to newer and more environmentally responsible
components to comply with the RoHS directive. The new appliances also sport a
new look and feel.
    "nCircle's compliance with the RoHS and WEEE directives demonstrates our
commitment to meeting or exceeding environmental standards in the manufacture
of nCircle hardware products," stated Stefan Petry, Vice President of Product
Management at nCircle. "nCircle took a proactive stance on compliance with
these regulations, and we will continue to ensure that our hardware design is
environmentally responsible."
