Roxio Unveils New Secure Product Line for Business

Enterprise Solutions Safeguard Vital Corporate, Institutional, and Government Data

Santa Clara, California, (July 1, 2010) - Roxio®, a division of Sonic Solutions® (NASDAQ: SNIC), today announced the availability of Roxio Secure products, an end-user-friendly family of enterprise applications that helps protect businesses, government agencies, and other institutions from data breach. The products enable users within an organization to quickly secure data on CD, DVD, Blu-ray Disc, and flash devices using powerful data encryption that safeguards the contents from being accessed by unauthorized persons. Roxio Secure offerings go beyond simple encryption on stand-alone machines to provide advanced end-point security features for networks of computers in small workgroups to multi-departmental global enterprises. Roxio Secure offerings arm companies with the tools to not only meet internal security policies, but also comply with industry and government-mandated privacy measures and regulations.

"An important addition to our enterprise product line, Roxio Secure enables private and public sector organizations to enhance the overall effectiveness of their information security and privacy practices," said Matt DiMaria, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Roxio. "In order to fully safeguard valuable corporate data as well as sensitive information that may have been entrusted to them, it is essential for organizations to protect against unauthorized access at all levels. Our new Roxio Secure solutions ensure that data protection practices are in alignment with organizational policies and can be achieved without impacting employee productivity."

Disclosure of confidential intellectual property can greatly affect an organization's ability to compete, while data breaches involving sensitive customer information can not only damage an organization's reputation, but may also violate State and Federal regulations, which can be very costly. An independent study conducted in 2009 found that the average cost per-incident was $6.75 million. The ease with which content can be copied and shared poses a challenge for IT teams and small business owners attempting to secure against data leakage at an employee level. Roxio Secure products are easy to set-up and deploy on networked PCs, securing enterprise data, and can be configured to be entirely transparent to the end user. This unique combination of capabilities ensures organizations can enjoy a high level of confidence for end-point security to avoid costly data loss incidents without giving up the flexibility and productivity benefits associated with portable media.
