Nevis Networks Recognized by EE Times as a “Company to Watch”

Leading Electronics Industry Publication Selects Nevis as a Technology Innovator in LAN Security

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – January 17, 2006 – Nevis Networks, a provider of ASIC-based enterprise LAN security appliances, announced today that EE Times has identified it as a “company to watch” in 2006. EE Times’ “The Creators” list singles out startups that are shaping tomorrow’s technologies. Nevis was recognized for its LANenforcer™ family of LAN security solutions, which enable enterprises to comprehensively protect against LAN security threats. “Being named to EE Times’ ‘The Creators’ list is a significant honor as it acknowledges Nevis’ pioneering role in delivering the first complete, integrated LAN security appliance,” said Bill Scull, senior vice president of marketing, Nevis Networks. “Nevis’ solution meets a critical need of today’s enterprises.

While most enterprises have secured their LAN-WAN perimeter, the LAN is still extremely vulnerable to internal threats, both malicious and unintentional. Nevis is unique in delivering multi-gigabit security protection, which eliminates network latency while fully protecting each individual user on the LAN. Receiving this award from such a renowned publication confirms the innovativeness of our ASIC-based architecture, which provides Nevis with a considerable price-performance advantage.”

Nevis’ LANenforcer product family is the first to integrate all the key LAN security functions into a single appliance, combining identity-driven network access control and microsecond threat containment to fully protect network assets and individual users from threats. The product family also delivers granular visibility into individual user activities for faster problem resolution and regulatory compliance reporting. EE Times’ 2006 “The Creators” list of emerging startups was published in the magazine’s December 28, 2005, issue.
