  SAN DIEGO, CA, May 01 (Marketwire) -- 
EdgeWave Inc., (OTCBB: EWVE) (OTCQB: EWVE), a leading provider of Secure
Content Management (SCM) solutions, today announced iPrism Social Media
Security, a new service that transcends traditional Web filtering by
seamlessly monitoring and controlling user interactions with social media
applications such as Facebook, Twitter and Google. iPrism Social Media
Security positions the company as a global leader in social networking
safety by enabling access to popular social media sites, while providing
enforcement of acceptable use policies. iPrism Social Media Security
protects enterprises and educational institutions from loss of
proprietary, confidential and sensitive data, and gives them control over
inappropriate content postings, while helping to prevent cyber bullying.

    "With social media becoming the largest, fastest growing segment of Web
traffic and an integral part of personal and business relationships,
organizations can no longer adopt an all-or-nothing approach for
enforcing Internet use policies," said Steve Kelley, SVP of Corporate
Development and Product Strategy at EdgeWave. "iPrism Social Media
Security is seamlessly integrated into the fabric of social media
applications such as Facebook and Twitter to provide organizations with
much needed visibility, control and protection against potential threats
and liabilities associated with the social Web." 

    iPrism Social Media Security provides administrators with unequalled
functionality for managing social media applications:


--  Policy management interface enables easy-to-configure acceptable use
    policies for social media applications
--  Industry-specific policy templates that are customizable to fit an
    organization's individual requirements
--  Integrated, customizable reporting for visibility and regulatory
    compliance of social media activity
--  Application-level content blocking and warning messages that provide
    an integrated user experience with applications such as Facebook and
    Twitter

    

"Monitoring student conduct online and in the classroom is an
essential part of our responsibility as educators," said Larry Troisi,
Technology Services Supervisor for the National School District. "With
iPrism Social Media Security, EdgeWave has armed us with the necessary
tools to thwart important issues, such as cyber-bullying and harassment,
that have become commonplace with the adoption of social media
applications among students."

    iPrism Social Media Security is available for purchase with iPrism Web
Security v7.1.
