SAN FRANCISCO -- January 17, 2013

Mocana, the leader in app and Android™ security, today announced that its
KeyDAR™ Encryption mobile security product is providing enterprise-grade
security for the new ToughPad™ JT-B1, a 7-inch Android-powered tablet
introduced by Panasonic at last week’s Consumer Electronics Show. More
information about KeyDAR is available at the Mocana website, at
https://www.mocana.com/keydar-encryption.html.

“The enterprise-grade KeyDAR product pre-loaded on the Panasonic ToughPad
greatly augments the default security level of the Android OS to provide the
extra protection required for corporate, government and military
applications,” said Kurt Stammberger, CISSP and vice president of market
development at Mocana. “Mocana KeyDAR is also the first FIPS 140-2 validated
mobile security product to fully support the latest version of the Android OS,
which enables device manufacturers like Panasonic to differentiate their
offerings and position themselves well for enterprise and mission-critical
markets.”

Designed for mission-critical and highly mobile workers in verticals including
military, construction, healthcare, public safety, utilities, retail,
maintenance, supply chain logistics and insurance, the ruggedized Panasonic
ToughPad JT-B1tablet has been MIL-STD-810G tested for drops, fluid ingress and
temperature to assure it delivers reliable performance under circumstances
that render typical tablets non-operational. Mocana security built into the
Panasonic tablet provides FIPS 140-2 level 1 certified encryption to protect
data-at-rest. Available in March, the ToughPad JT-B1 offers a number of
security features in various configurations, including Mocana’s KeyDAR
encryption, IPsec VPN, trusted boot and root protection.

Mocana KeyDAR Encryption is Android’s most optimized and most efficient DAR
encryption product. KeyDAR enables best-practices security while delivering
great battery life and fast, responsive devices. FIPS 140-2 level 1
certification makes KeyDAR perfect for device manufacturers like Panasonic
that have customers with strict security requirements.

KeyDAR Encryption is fully cross-platform, and works on all versions of the
Android OS, as well as all Android-supported hardware platforms.
