Ezenia! Inc., a leading market provider of real-time situational awareness, command and control solutions for corporate and government networks, announced today the release and immediate availability of MxM Secure, the company's latest software suite dedicated to real-time secure messaging and information sharing for the Commercial market segment.

MxM Secure is the culmination of over four years of development and incorporates all of our knowledge and experience into an intuitive, secure and elegant product for the marketplace. The lessons learned from the deployment over the last ten years of the Company's flagship product line, InfoWorkSpace, for use by the Warfighters and Intelligence agencies have been leveraged at every possible opportunity. Architected and designed from the ground up, MxM Secure provides granular depth and flexible breadth of data protection and audit capabilities with extensive security capabilities as robust as in InfoWorkSpace. However, MxM Secure is optimized for simplicity of use, user configurable graphical user interface, adaptable configuration of functionality, and ease of deployment either on premise, available now, or via software as a service (SaaS) available in the second half of the year.

MxM Secure is an ideal fit for organizations that want to communicate and collaborate in real-time but need to satisfy regulatory compliance such as conformance to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), Title 21 CFR Part 11 of the Code of Federal Regulations (21CFR11), Massachusetts regulations (201CMR17) concerning the Protection of Personal Information of Residents of the Commonwealth, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), or for those organizations with a keen and urgent interest in securing company information such as trade secrets, sensitive negotiations, corporate policies, privacy concerns, and/or protection of its corporate digital reputation.

MxM Secure has been undergoing intense beta trials in a variety of environments over the last several months ranging from insurance companies, charity organizations, providers of healthcare transcription solutions, military colleges, emergency telecommunication providers for first responders, and partners in Infrastructure Technology (IT) business solutions. This week, MxM Secure is being showcased at the 24th Annual Governor's Hurricane Conference held May 23-28 in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

According to Andrew Hoffmann, President of HSG Global Services in Framingham, MA, "MxM Secure allows organizations to leverage efficient means of digital communication such as instant messaging and desktop sharing in a secure and auditable fashion. We recommend the use of MxM to clients who wish to restore efficiency through these methods of interaction which have previously been stifled due to security and compliance risks."

"Almost four years ago when I arrived at Ezenia to lead the development efforts of MxM Secure, our architecture and design objectives were first and foremost to create a truly secure and trusted environment for real-time interactions. Those guiding principles along with flexibility, granularity, and intuitiveness in all aspects of operation and configuration were the cornerstones of the engineering effort," stated Michael Fitzell, Vice President of Engineering at Ezenia. "Not only have we achieved these objectives, going forward as part of our strategic plan we intend to provide an easily deployed hosted solution, continued conformance to open and emerging standards, and interoperability and compatibility, where applicable, with our DOD-centric offering InfoWorkSpace."

"When it comes to real time communication and collaboration, MxM Secure is the only solution to meet our compliance and privacy needs.

It's just icing on the cake that Ezenia is such a responsive and agile provider of an elegant solution to keep our distributed work force productive," declared Tammy Mickelson, Vice President of Infrastructure Technology, Easter Seals in New Hampshire.

"We're delighted to have Easter Seals in NH as our first Commercial customer and look forward to seeing MxM deployment expand into other states within Easter Seals in New England as well as nationally," remarked Rene Rodriguez, Vice President of Government Business at Ezenia.

"While MxM Secure will allow many private sector companies to deploy trusted means of messaging and information sharing with the protection from inherent security exposures and insufficient audit capabilities, its cost effectiveness and ease of deployment will facilitate Ezenia expansion into new government agencies and augment our existing product portfolio."
