  SAN DIEGO, CA, Apr 10 (Marketwire) -- 
EdgeWave Inc. (OTCBB: EWVE) (OTCQB: EWVE), a leading provider of Secure
Content Management (SCM) solutions, today announced the release of iPrism
Web Security v7.0. The new release offers features designed to expand
Enterprise-level functionality including SSL filtering, VLAN support
integration, High Availability deployment, Email Protocol Filtering and
Certificate Chain support. This version also boasts features that
optimize network performance through Quotas and Warnings that allow
administrators more control over bandwidth usage, and new Custom Filter
enhancements that offer options for more granular control within URL
categorization. iPrism v7.0 also includes support for YouTube for
Schools, allowing schools to access valuable learning tools while still
blocking unwanted video content. The new features in iPrism Web Security
Version 7.0 are available to current customers at no additional charge. 

    "iPrism continues to provide innovative solutions for the advanced Web
threats we face every day, while retaining its ease-of-use and low
maintenance requirements," said Ernest Staats of Georgia Cumberland
Academy. "The new features and enhancements in iPrism v 7.0, including
more granular application controls and custom filter options, have been
critical in helping us defend against Web 2.0 threats. We are very
pleased with how iPrism allows our students and staff to use the Internet
safely and productively."

    "EdgeWave is committed to supporting the evolving needs of our enterprise
and educational customers," said, Steve Kelley, S.V.P. of Corporate
Development and Product Strategy at EdgeWave. "iPrism v7.0 delivers on
our promise of protecting organizations from emerging web security
threats while providing native support for enterprise-class technologies
like VLAN and virtual desktop infrastructure." 

    iPrism Web Security v7.0 includes the following new features and

--  SSL Filtering - Detects and classifies server name indication (SNI)
    header information in the outbound request, at the start of the SSL
    handshake process. This lets you control where you will allow
    encrypted content to be sent, avoiding potential hacker incursions via
    unfiltered SSL.
--  Virtual Desktop Support - Native support for virtual desktop
    environments through unique session-based authentication technology,
    which simplifies the process for terminal services users and prevents
    interruptions from authentication requests.
--  VLAN Support - Support multiple VLANs through a single iPrism
    appliance with the administrator designating VLAN addresses when
    iPrism is configured. This features offers easier iPrism setup and
    management, with visibility of all traffic on a single iPrism, when
    deployed in networks using VLAN trunking configurations.
--  YouTube for Schools Support - Provide a safe and productive YouTube
    environment for students and faculty at educational institutions.
    Customers who have a YouTube for Schools account are able to
    seamlessly integrate all YouTube requests through their own video
    portal creating a worry-free YouTube experience for educators.
--  Bandwidth Quotas and Warnings- Optimize network performance by adding
    a policy attribute to web profiles that limits the total bandwidth
    consumed by a user under the applicable policy. Quotas and Warnings
    events are now identified through both real-time monitoring and
    reporting, assisting users in establishing limits on acceptable
    activity, which can decrease bandwidth usage.
--  High Availability iPrism Pairing- Enable high availability through
    iPrism interconnectivity to enable traffic status visibility across
    multiple appliances to provide seamless failover from primary to
    secondary appliance. This configuration assures optimum performance
    when it is used in high availability or redundant networks with
    multiple firewalls.
--  Email Protocol Filtering - Support filtering of SMTP, POP and IMAP
    email protocols and their secured versions. This feature enhances the
    use policies for email coming into organizations by providing the
    ability to filter major protocols.
--  Enhanced Custom Filters - Increase granularity of custom filtering
    options when changing the category ratings for specific URL's by
    allowing users to add properties to URL entries in Custom Filters.
--  Certificate Chain Support - Upload and install intermediary
    certificates, which add a layer of security that eliminates the
    possibility that a root certificate could be compromised. End entity
    certificates chained to an intermediate certificate represent the
    highest possible security solution for Certification Authorities and
    therefore their customers.


iPrism Web Security Version 7.0 is available now. Existing iPrism
customers can upgrade at no cost.
