Accuvant Launches Wireless Practice Area

Denver, Colorado - November 9, 2004 - Accuvant, an elite provider of information security solutions, announced today the creation of a Wireless Solutions Division, whose efforts will be spearheaded by Matthew Bossom.

Accuvant's Wireless Solutions Division provides an array of technologies and services to address the growing demand for wireless security expertise. Specialized wireless service offerings include architecture design, site mapping, infrastructure deployment, and security assessment. Accuvant will also continue to leverage its partnerships with leading manufacturers to provide clients with access to the best available technology in the wireless space.

"The creation of a formal wireless practice is a natural extension of our core business," stated Dan Burns, VP of Sales and Co-Founder of Accuvant. "Wireless solutions carry heightened security risk compared to local area networks (LANs) and companies must be prepared to address a new set of security issues."

Mr. Bossom has been hired to lead the Division's go-to-market strategy. Previous to Accuvant, Bossom was a Wireless Security Product Manager and Lead Wireless Consultant at several wireless consulting firms where he successfully managed and deployed wireless network systems for a number of Fortune 500 and mid-sized companies. Mr. Bossom's experience perfectly qualifies him to lead Accuvant's wireless efforts.

"Matthew's outstanding track record of securing complex, multi-vendor wireless solutions for large enterprises differentiated him from the other candidates," said Burns. "We are impressed with his background and know he is the right person to lead our wireless division."

"I am excited to join a growing and talented company that understand the intersection of wireless technology and security risk," said Bossom. "Most organizations fall into one of two categories: either they deployed a wireless infrastructure early without adequate security, or they held off deploying wireless because of security concerns. Accuvant's Wireless Solutions Division will be able to help both groups. We'll assess and retrofit existing networks or design secure and manageable architectures for new installations using best of breed wireless technologies. "
