SkyRecon Systems Obtains OESISOK(TM) Certification

StormShield Interoperates With Products Powered by the OESIS(R) Framework

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - July 22, 2008) - SkyRecon® Systems (, the premier provider of integrated, proactive endpoint security solutions, today announced that its StormShield® v5.01 has been OESISOK certified.

OESISOK certification ensures that StormShield will interoperate seamlessly with products powered by the OESIS Framework, an open development framework that provides an industry standard for endpoint security application integration. When a security application is designated OESISOK, it is considered to be compatible with many network connectivity and other system health verification solutions.

In a growing number of market verticals designed to help businesses secure their operating environment -- including markets such as Remote Access, Network Access Control, and Compliance -- technology vendors seek to integrate their applications with endpoint security solutions such as StormShield.

"As the endpoint has become the weakest link in security, endpoint protection solutions have become a priority for organizations looking to protect their sensitive data and critical business systems. In this context, StormShield seamlessly interoperates with Network Access Control and SSL VPN solutions to provide secure, yet functional, end-to-end network and endpoint security and compliance solutions," says Philippe Honigman, President and COO, SkyRecon Systems. OESISOK is an important program that certifies StormShield interoperability with products from market-leading technology vendors such as Juniper Networks, Cisco Systems, SonicWALL and many others.

A recent TechWorld Awards finalist for Endpoint Security Product of the Year, StormShield offers integrated system and data protection in a single product. Relying on behaviors rather than signatures or heuristics -- approaches that are becoming more and more antiquated -- StormShield protects data where it is most at risk: on the endpoints. StormShield provides integrated device control, data encryption, application control, host-based intrusion prevention (HIPS), system firewall, wireless security, and network access control (NAC). Its proactive security agent also provides zero-day protection without the need for signature or rule updates -- all of this using only a few megabytes of memory, a fraction of the size of competing products in the market.

"We are pleased to have an innovator like SkyRecon Systems complete their OESISOK certification. End-users want IT security solutions that are tested and verified as interoperable," said Benny Czarny, president and CEO of OPSWAT, Inc. "The OESISOK certification program eliminates the guesswork for end-users by ensuring that every endpoint security layer within SkyRecon's StormShield Security Suite is interoperable with other market-leading security applications."
