NEW E-SERIES FROM NETWORK BOX LETS ENTERPRISES CONSOLIDATE NETWORK DEFENSES AND REDUCE CPU STRAIN

HOUSTON, June 2, 2008 -- Network Box USA, Inc. (www.networkboxusa.com), the American arm of managed security company Network Box Corp., today announced the new E-Series, a product line that enables companies of all sizes to consolidate their network security through one solution and greatly reduce the strain on operating resources. The E-Series product range includes solutions for medium-sized enterprises (model E1000) to large ones (E2000 and E4000), allowing the Network Box service to grow with their customers

"Because of the evolving nature of online threats - and their rapidly growing numbers - companies have had to increase their computing power in order to defend against them," said Pierluigi Stella, CTO of Network Box USA. "That's why consolidating different security elements makes so much sense. The potent new E-Series protects organizations against all online threats in a single device, which minimizes the power and infrastructure required for comprehensive network security."

Stella added that the pressure today on security technologies is unrelenting and that ever more powerful processors are needed to analyze and quickly protect against sophisticated online threats. Over the last five years, Network Box has witnessed an increase in anti-virus signatures from 30,000 to 900,000, while anti-spam signatures have grown from 10,000 to two million. Using separate solutions strong enough to combat these dangers is an administrative challenge and a significant drain on operating resources.

In addition to thwarting emerging threats, the powerful memory of the Network Box E-Series means that it can easily maintain a library of old threats that sporadically reappear - unlike many security devices that purge databases because of limited memory, leaving companies open to attack.

"IT managers face a daunting number of attack vectors, so they'll buy several different technologies to counter these threats," said Stella. "This can be a real logistical nightmare, creating unnecessary, complicated layers of infrastructure and draining an organization's computing power. The E-Series uses the minimum amount of processing power required to provide effective security, so it never reduces the network's performance."

Price and Availability

The new E-Series is available now through Network Box USA's reseller channel. Prices start at about $26,000, which includes hardware and first year of service for UTM+ configuration. Additional information on the E-Series, including technical specifications, is available at www.networkboxusa.com/products.php or from Network Box USA, 2825 Wilcrest, Suite 259, Houston, Texas 77042; telephone 832-242-5758 or (toll free) 888-315-8886; fax: 713-933-0290; email info@networkboxusa.com.
