Tumbleweed Presenting Two Sessions at RSA Conference 2008

Executives to discuss encryption, access control, and risks of unsecured file transfers

Tumbleweed® Communications Corp. (NASDAQ:TMWD), an industry leader in managed file transfer and email security, today announced that company executives will present insights into the latest security trends at the RSA Conference in San Francisco, April 7-11. Tumbleweed executives will be discussing some of the most pressing issues affecting enterprises during two separate sessions, one on encryption and the other on logical and physical access control.

  • On Wednesday, April 9, at 8 a.m., Dr. Taher Elgamal, CTO of Tumbleweed, also known as the “Inventor of SSL,” will lead a Peer to Peer discussion entitled “Creating a Clear Enterprise Encryption Strategy.” Elgamal will lead participants in a discussion about maximizing encryption strategies to fit enterprise security plans.
  • On Thursday, April 10, at 10:40 a.m., Tumbleweed’s vice president of product management, Joe Fisher, will moderate a panel about identity validation entitled, “Two for One: Keys to Consolidating Logical and Physical Access Control.” Fisher is joined by panelists Michael Hejtmanek, CEO of Enterprise Air, and John Thielens, VP of Technology for Tumbleweed, to discuss the move toward a consolidated access management program, as well as strategies for managing physical and logical access simultaneously.
  • Additionally at RSA, Tumbleweed will demonstrate their new FTP Analyzer at their booth #2232. The FTP Analyzer is a free diagnostic tool that enables organizations to identify all FTP traffic on their network, including unsecured and rogue traffic, to get ahead of any risks presented by unsecured FTP. FTP is the cheapest, simplest and most versatile method for sharing large data files over the Internet, yet it introduces security challenges as well-intentioned employees turn to FTP for transmission of business-critical data.

RSA Conference 2008 will be held on April 7-11, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. More details about the RSA Conference can be found here: http://www.rsaconference.com/2008/US/home.aspx.
