LAS VEGAS -- January 7, 2013

OpenPeak Inc., a leading provider of mobile device and application management
solutions for enterprises, today announced enhancements to its SECTOR app
wrapping technology, which now enhances mobile apps with support for per-app
VPNs and three-factor authentication, including PIN, smart card and biometric
technologies. Newly integrated with Precise Biometrics’ Tactivo^™, a smart
card and fingerprint sensor designed for the iPhone and iPad, OpenPeak’s ADAM
solution enables enterprises to enhance a secure, trusted workspace with
unprecedented, multi-factor authentication and security features.

An organization can now set a policy to enforce the use of any or all of PIN,
smart card, and fingerprint scan for accessing apps on mobile devices.
Alternatively, fingerprint swipe sign-on can be conveniently used in lieu of
PIN-based access to secure applications. The organization may also enforce the
use of the industry standard IPsec VPN on a per-app basis.

Government organizations are now able to leverage these new features for
enabling their Common Access Card (CAC) or Personal Identity Verification
(PIV) cards to extend secured applications and data to mobile employees,
government officials, law enforcement, and military personnel.

OpenPeak makes it possible for enterprises to integrate all necessary
components of mobile security and management into a single, secure and unified
solution, complete with a flexible and easy-to-use management portal. By
defining policies via the administration portal of OpenPeak’s ADAM solution,
administrators can choose to enforce OpenPeak’s full three-factor
authentication or select a combination that works best for their specific
security needs. OpenPeak’s VPN and three-factor authentication process are
both fully automatic, requiring zero modifications by developers to the app’s
source code.

OpenPeak’s VPN support adds a policy-driven, dynamically configurable
app-level IPsec VPN, allowing wrapped apps to protect data in motion. IPsec is
an industry standard suite of protocols for providing authenticated and secure
communication over IP networks. Wrapped applications can work with leading VPN

Debuting at the International Consumer Electronic Show (CES), OpenPeak’s VPN
and three-factor authentication features support enterprises’ need for
improved security in today’s increasingly mobile and independent workplace. In
the world of BYOD mobility, enterprises must be able to easily secure and
track ever increasing numbers of applications and content on a myriad of
different devices and operating platforms.

“Thanks to the increased use of mobile devices, apps and content, we have a
much more productive workforce than we did a decade ago – but with increased
productivity comes the need for increased security and innovations in
authentication,” said Jonathan Fischer, mobile security expert and OpenPeak’s
Vice President of Global Technical Sales. “It’s time to look beyond just
devices, and look towards the apps that run on those devices and the corporate
data that is being accessed and moved around between those apps and backend
data sources. We are eager to continually offer the most trusted,
multi-pronged approach to security for enterprises.”

Every wrapped application on the OpenPeak platform will now be enhanced with
support for three-factor authentication, making it easy for IT administrators
to control sharing of sensitive data between applications on the same device
and heighten security that spans individual applications.

Precise Biometrics' CTO, Michael Harris, says, "OpenPeak is addressing a
growing concern for business and government alike; how to protect enterprise
data and networks as employees become more mobile. In choosing Tactivo,
OpenPeak is able to provide its customers strong authentication options on the
iPhone and iPad, in a way that is easy and convenient to use."

These capabilities extend the comprehensive set of security controls that ADAM
makes available to mobile apps, which include password control, per-app
execution authorization policies, data at rest protection with per-app
encryption keys, and controlled sharing of data between secure and non-secure

authentication and security features during CES, contact Heather Kelly at
