Corporate customers using Steganos’s leading data security solutions will benefit from tiered discounts and fixed price Upgrade Assurance contracts

KESTON, UK, 25TH October 2006 - Steganos, European leader in providing security and privacy software for consumers and SMEs, has launched a new corporate licensing programme for businesses that use Steganos Security Suite 2006 and Steganos Safe Professional 2006.

Steganos Safe Professional 2006 is an advanced encryption solution, enabling the secure storage and transport of data. It includes installation and password management features to ensure that companies can easily guard their sensitive data without exposing themselves to the risk of being locked out from it. Steganos Security Suite 2006 extends these encryption features with email encryption, steganography (the ability to hide data in images or sound files), private favorites, a secure data shredder and Internet Trace Destructor.

As part of the new corporate licence programme, business customers can now buy an Upgrade Assurance contract. This is priced at half the cost of a new licence and guarantees a free upgrade to the next generation of the software.

For the first time, corporate customers can also benefit from significant volume and loyalty discounts. All purchases of software licences and Upgrade Assurance contracts earn points which are used to determine the customer’s discount level. Because all accumulated points are totalled to determine the current discount level, the programme rewards loyal customers who not only order in bulk, but also those that buy frequently in smaller quantities. Points expire one year after the last purchase of Steganos products.

By working with Steganos Certified Partners, businesses can now test Steganos software across their business free of charge for thirty days. Customers are asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement confirming that any unlicensed software will be destroyed at the end of this extended trial period.

Aston Fallen, CEO of Steganos, said: “Businesses are increasingly driven by ideas and data. Protecting these key assets is becoming a corporate priority, mandated in some cases by industry regulation and in others by best practice guidelines. Through our new corporate licensing programme, we aim to build a closer relationship with our business customers and help them save money and plan their upgrade path without compromising on the quality of software they deploy.”
