St. Bernard Software Announces Acquisition Of Red Condor

Company enhances hybrid security offering and expands cloud-based service platform
San Diego, CA – August 4, 2010 – St. Bernard Software, Inc. (OTCBB:

SBSW), a leader in Web security appliances, today announced the acquisition of

substantially all assets of Red Condor Inc., the award-winning provider of fully

managed email security solutions.

The acquisition builds upon the success of St. Bernard’s existing hybrid platform,

which has served the SME market through a combination of high-performance

appliances, software, and hosted security solutions. With the Web security

market expected to grow to $2.3 billion by 2012, and the protection of leading

applications such as email and messaging remaining a primary concern across

global enterprises of all sizes, the acquisition of Red Condor’s managed security

solutions is a natural extension of St. Bernard’s product portfolio and business

strategy.

“This acquisition milestone is a truly exciting time for both St. Bernard and Red

Condor, as it creates great opportunities for growth with our shared hybrid

security vision,” said Lou Ryan, President and CEO at St. Bernard. “The strategic

match we have found in Red Condor establishes greater breadth and depth in

our hosted, hybrid and on-premises options, and increases the overall value to

our customers and partners. With the integration of Red Condor’s carrier-grade

technology and platform, we are perfectly positioned to accelerate our growth

engine and work with an increasing and diversified base of customers across

multiple security solutions.”

As a result of the acquisition, St. Bernard will gain over 1,900 new customers as

well as Red Condor’s extensive ISP and MSP partner network. St. Bernard’s

enhanced hybrid platform allows the company to extend new and unique value to

subscribers of these previously underserved markets with a full suite of easy-touse,

cost-effective and scalable security solutions.

“Red Condor is widely recognized for the simplicity and scalability of its unique

hybrid offerings,” continued Ryan. “The Red Condor platform and the vision

behind it, dovetail perfectly with St. Bernard’s primary technology offering and

reinforces our key attributes of value, simplicity, and performance.”

Founded in 2004, Red Condor has approximately 35 employees and is

headquartered in Rohnert Park, California. The company’s hosted and hybrid

email spam filtering solutions have garnered numerous industry awards and

recognition, and most recently proved to outperform competitive spam filters in

an independent test of email filter accuracy by Miercom. The report not only

validated Red Condor’s hybrid technology offering, but also confirmed that the

company had the highest block rate, zero false-positives and only one

misclassified message for every 1,970 messages received during the one-week

test. The complete results can be found at
