Partnership to provide higher security for laptops.

Secude International : 13 July, 2007  (Company News)
Rugged Durabook laptops now equipped with Secude access authentication and Seagate data encryption for higher levels of mobile computing security.
Secude, Seagate & GammaTech (formerly Twinhead) are
teaming to deliver best-in-class security solutions designed to
prevent unauthorised access to data on lost or stolen notebook PCs.
Secude's FinallySecure authentication technology, combined with
Seagate's DriveTrust security featuring hardware-based Full Disk
Encryption, is now available on Durabook notebooks by GammaTech.

'Secude's FinallySecure provides total Data-at-Rest security with
Seagate's Momentus(r) 5400 FDE.2 hard drive. The 2.5-inch notebook
drive is the industry's first system to feature hardware-based full
disk encryption, access control, and password management - all without
compromising performance', said Dr Heiner Kromer, CEO of Secude

The combined solution is the first link in the authentication chain,
providing an Adaptive Technology with Risk Management and Productivity
gains for end to end security. The Secude and Seagate security
umbrella protects against loss of data, fines from non-compliance, and
destruction of brand value. In addition, end user transparency results
in an ROI from productivity gains and also allows for migration from
single user to enterprise and software to hardware, all with central
management. The solution allows GammaTech customers to survive, adapt,
and grow in a heterogeneous IT eco-system.

'Seagate is pleased to see our current customer base leverage this
technology to add security value to their current systems,' said Tom
Major, Vice President of Personal Compute Business, Seagate. 'The
market is hungry for this type of protection, and together we offer a
robust best-in-class solution with little integration impact.'

Seagate DriveTrust Technology is a next-generation security platform
built into the hard drive that is considerably stronger than typical
BIOS, OS, or ATA based hard-drive security solutions. DriveTrust
combines strong, fully automated hardware-based security with a
programming foundation that makes it easy to add security-based
software applications for organization-wide encryption key management,
multi-factor user authentication and other capabilities that help lock
down digital information at rest. Secude has been an established
leader in key & access management, authentication, and encryption
technology for over a decade with a suite of products creating an end
to end security platform including Single Sign-On, Key & Token
Management, and encryption technologies. Secude has been a strong IT
security partner of SAP for 10 years and is a leading provider of key
and access management technologies for Seagate encrypted disk drives.

Durabook laptop computers from GammaTech, the newly named U.S. sales
and marketing arm of Twinhead Corporation, feature spill-resistant
keyboards, patented optical disk tray locks, anti-shock LCD screens
and protected hard drives, all capable of meeting US military MIL
810F standards for ruggedness. All Durabook laptops are protected
by a magnesium alloy case 20 times stronger than ordinary ABS plastic
notebook housings. The highly engineered laptops fill the fast-growing
demand among professionals, students, and other active, mobile
individuals for ultra-durable notebooks that can withstand the knocks,
shocks, drops and spills of real life.

'With the ever increasing concern for security and data protection,
the need for advanced access control and data security in laptops is
obvious,' said Steven Gau, president of GammaTech Computer
Corporation. 'This combined laptop security solution will be of
immense value for a wide range of applications and for government and
corporate users worldwide.'
