Marble Security Issued Patent for Securely Managing Mobile Phones and Devices
through a Cloud Service

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Feb. 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Marble Security today
announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued U.S.
Patent No. 8,356,105 entitled "Enterprise Device Policy Management" to Marble
Security. Filed in 2009 by Dave Jevans, co-founder and CTO of Marble
Security, the patent was issued on January 15, 2013.

The patent provides a method for managing the policies and security of
portable devices that store data through a third party cloud service. This
important innovation allows enterprises, financial institutions, healthcare
providers and government agencies to use a third party cloud service to manage
the security, encryption and policies of mobile devices without the risk that
the cloud service could compromise the devices. For instance, the cloud
services of other systems that do not use this technology could be compromised
by bugs, hackers, malicious insiders and even hostile government intervention.

"Employees are bringing their own devices to work, and security must be
ensured. In the past, companies had to install costly and complex Mobile
Device Management (MDM) software in their data centers to securely manage
iPhones, iPads, Android devices and PC and Mac laptops," says Jevans. "Marble
Security's newly issued patent allows a cloud service to securely provide
management capabilities to remote devices in such a way that only an
enterprise's administrators can unlock them. It also ensures that the cloud
provider cannot introduce any risks to the device or the data, even if the
cloud service is compromised."

"Enterprise Device Policy Management" patent 8,356,105 defines and provides a
way to ensure that only the IT administrators of an enterprise can access,
modify or unlock a mobile device, even if the service is compromised.
