<p>MailGate™ Appliance 3650 Offers Powerful Data Leakage Protection and Award-Winning Encryption Capabilities with Hassle-Free Usability</p>
<p>Sydney – 31 October, 2007 – Tumbleweed® Communications Corp. (NASDAQ: TMWD), the industry's leader in managed file transfer and content security, today announced its new MailGate™ Appliance 3650, which is geared towards penetrating the Small Medium Enterprise (SME) sector across the Asia-Pacific region.</p>
<p>A growing concern among SMEs today is accidental data leakage, which can cost businesses up to millions of dollars in revenues. With email and web communications becoming the de facto mode for information transfer, SMEs are looking beyond the traditional email security functions of spam and virus filtering with workflow-based functions of policy creation, content scanning, message encryption, quarantining, and/or archiving.</p>
<p>“Security threats in messaging are more prevalent now than ever and it is important to offer our customers reliable messaging security solutions to address their everyday needs,” said Mr. Stree Naidu, Regional Vice President Asia Pacific and Japan at Tumbleweed.</p>
<p>“Leveraging on our proven track record in empowering enterprises and government customers, we incorporated the most powerful patented security technology into our MailGate™ Appliance 3650 for SMEs to benefit from, especially in areas of Data Leakage Protection.”</p>
<p>Naidu added, “Our MailGate 3650 offering is unique -- what sets it apart from our competitors is how it can look into the ‘slack space’ inside files, such as properties information, revisions, and other meta data, and ensure that sensitive business information doesn’t slip out.”</p>
<p>Tumbleweed MailGate™ delivers the most robust, effective and easy-to-manage email security while preventing accidental email data leakage that can jeopardize corporate reputation and regulatory compliance. In addition, MailGate™ reduces the complexity associated with protecting sensitive data with an innovative user interface that filters content such as credit card and CUSIP with a simple check box.</p>
<p>Built on a hardened Linux appliance, MailGate™ Appliance 3650 installs in minutes, and is capable of processing close to two million messages an hour. Its intuitive administrative controls and centralized management capabilities make it the right choice for SMEs.</p>
<p>With the announcement of new premier partners joining Tumbleweed’s Alliance Program coupled with the hundreds of professionals selling its products in this region, the company is poised to tackle the high demands of SMEs for innovative, reliable and easy-to-use messaging security solutions.</p>
