CEO ILKKA HIIDENHEIMO

The year 2012 was a turning point in Stonesoft's history. We succeeded in our
long-term strategic goal to finance our business with operating cash flow,
despite strong investments in growth, and made a positive result for the full
year.

During the fourth quarter of the year 2012 Stonesoft's product sales grew by
almost 60% and net sales by approximately 41%. Once again, our product sales
made an all-time record. The net sales for the full year were also
record-breaking MEUR 40.1.

We invested and will continue to invest in making the growth continue by
adding resources in sales and marketing organization as well as product
development. We will extend our operations into new markets. We are actively
seeking distribution and OEM partnerships with internet solution providers. We
will continue to raise the competitiveness of our products in vertical sectors
such as teleoperator and defense industries and strengthen the suitability of
our products for channel partnership business, managed security service
providers (MSSPs) and securing cloud services.

There is a growing need on the market for our software based security
technology which uses standard hardware. In addition to the commercial success
of our products we continued to succeed extremely well in various tests by
leading independent test laboratories: among others, the NSS Labs tests prove
that Stonesoft has unique competence and our products are among the best of
today's rapidly developing security industry.

Our Evader testing tool, which is based on a relatively limited number of
evasions, is still capable of passing every next generation firewall, UTM and
IPS solution on the market, except Stonesoft's own security solutions. We will
introduce an updated version of the Evader tool at the RSA conference in the
US at the end of February.

Cyber security has been strongly visible in the media around the globe and
Stonesoft has received a lot of publicity in this respect. However, we are
dealing with a strategic level problem, to which there are no easy answers on
the operational level. The traditional approach where strategy is directed via
technology does not work. Based on Stonesoft's view, strategic level guidance
is required to direct operations and technology choices.

The Winning Cyber Strategy 2013 top forum we arranged after the reporting
period in January brought together leading cyber security experts from Finland
and abroad. In the forum, cyber risks and threats were discussed, but also
resilience, the opportunities brought by cyber security as well as cyber
strategy insights. Cyber security concerns all of us and provides significant
opportunities to both Stonesoft and the whole Finland. Our internationally
unique cyber competence provides us with the possibility to become the world's
leading experts in this demanding field. Numerous appearances and articles in
the world's leading media such as the Economist, Frankfurter Allgemeine
Zeitung and the New York Times have significantly strengthened the company's
public recognition.

CORPORATE GOVERNANCE STATEMENT

The Audit Committee of Stonesoft Corporation's Board of Directors will review

Corporate Governance Statement will be issued separately from The Board of
Director's report and published in the Annual Report 2012.

Stonesoft Corporation applies the Corporate Governance Code recommendations
for listed companies prepared by the NASDAQ OMX Helsinki Ltd, the Central
Chamber of Commerce and the Confederation of Finnish Industries EK and
published in June 2010. A more detailed description of the Corporate
Governance principles of Stonesoft Corporation is available at the corporate
website (www.stonesoft.com).

The Corporate Governance Statement contains the main features of internal
control and risk management in relation to the financial reporting systems as
well as information about the composition and duties of the Board of Directors
and information about the Chief Executive Officer.

RISKS AND BUSINESS UNCERTAINTIES

There have been no significant changes in the risk scenario with respect to
Stonesoft.
The need of companies and authorities to protect themselves against network
attacks and cyber threats will increase significantly. The global economical
crisis has negative impact on total demand.

The biggest risk factors of the company's operations are related to
operational and financial risks as well as securing and managing critical data
and infrastructure.

Operational risks

The company sets financial targets annually in connection with the budgeting
and the realization of the targets is monitored on a monthly basis. The
guidance and supervision of the business operations takes place with the means
of a reporting and forecasting system covering the entire group that the
company strives to develop on a continuous basis. The product sales and
related services are made mainly through global channel partners, using
standardized Stonesoft agreements. The company keeps a buffer stock for sales
to ensure rapid delivery and to be able to meet unexpected peak demands. The
sales operations are supported by the company's legal unit seeking to reduce
the risks related to the global business operations through continuous
management and development of contracts. The company also uses insurance to
cover property, operational and liability risks.

Financial risks

Stonesoft does not normally provide financing to its customers, other than
generally accepted terms of payment. The company invoices mainly in Euros, the
US dollar being the other invoicing currency. The company's costs occur mostly
in Euros. Exchange rate fluctuations can affect the company's financial
results. The company uses matching as a main tool for offsetting the exchange
rate risks. The task of Stonesoft's Corporate Treasury is to manage financial
risks in accordance with the Treasury Policy approved by Stonesoft's Board of
Directors.

The main goals of the policy are
(i) to ensure the short-term liquidity of the company,
(ii) to guarantee efficient circulation of cash funds and
(iii) to follow prudent and transparent investment policy for the cash
reserves, aiming at guaranteeing competitive return on a selected risk level.

The company's cash reserves are invested in interest bearing instruments. The
company's profits and related costs are under continuous control.

Management and safeguard of critical business related information and assets

Stonesoft manages and safeguards its critical business information by
stringent internal policies and processes. The company constantly reviews and
updates its network infrastructure and actively utilizes its own products in
order to protect the network infrastructure of the company. The company has
back-up systems to ensure business continuity also in a state of emergency.

During the fiscal year 2013, Stonesoft's main risks and business uncertainties
relate to the realization timetable of the sales projects and possible
production disruption of our subcontractors and suppliers. Stonesoft has no
risks related to the order book, because it normally can process incoming
orders within a couple of work days.

Stonesoft's risk management and its principles are discussed more extensively
at the company website and in the Annual Report.

FUTURE OUTLOOK

In 2012, the network security market grew by approximately 10%, and based on
estimates by various sources the growth level of the total market will remain
at 5-15% during the year 2013. For example, Gartner has estimated that the
network security market, without any support or other services, will reach USD
9 Billion in 2013.

Stonesoft's comprehensive product offering meets the rapidly developing and
changing security challenges, including the demands brought by cloud services,
virtualization and outsourcing of security.

Advanced evasion techniques

Stonesoft's freely downloadable Evader testing tool provides organizations
with the possibility to see in their own environment that advanced evasion
techniques are able to bypass all except Stonesoft's security systems.

Due to incorrect technology choices, many competitors have great difficulties
in amending their solutions to provide protection against AETs now and in the
future.

Stonesoft has received the highest possible status in the Next Generation
Firewall, Intrusion Prevention System as well as the latest Network Firewall
Group tests of the independent research company NSS Labs. In addition, the
research company Gartner had positioned Stonesoft as a visionary in both its
IPS and Firewall Magic Quadrants. In the IPS Magic Quadrant Stonesoft is the
only company who has received the visionary status.

Cyber security

Stonesoft's active participation in the current discussion about cyber
security has brought the topic also to the awareness of the larger audience.
Stonesoft is a pioneer in cyber security and will maintain its thought
leadership in the market according to its strategy.

Estimate

Based on Stonesoft's view, these issues will continue to have a positive
impact on the company's net sales and profitability and will strengthen its
competitiveness and market position.

The company's budgeted net sales for 2013 is MEUR 60 and the net sales target
set in the strategy for the year 2014 is approximately MEUR 90. To support
this, the company will enter several new markets during 2013 and actively
develop partner business.

While the company is aiming for strong growth, the operating profit (EBIT) for
the first quarter of the year is expected to be negative and the operating
profit for the full year to improve compared to the previous year.

With regard to the development of the turnover and the operating result,
variation is expected between the quarters in comparison to the corresponding
quarter during the previous year as well as to the previous quarter as a
consequence of, among others, long sales cycles and the relatively big impact
of individual deals on the development of net sales and operating result.

SUMMARY OF FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND NOTES JANUARY 1 - DECEMBER 31, 2012

ACCOUNTING PRINCIPLES

This Financial Statement Release has been prepared in accordance with the IAS
34 standard.

The company has adopted certain new or revised IFRS standards and IFRIC
interpretations at the beginning of the financial period as described in the
Financial Statements for 2011. However, the adoption of these new and amended
standards has not yet had an effect on the reported figures in practice. In
other respects, the same accounting policies have been followed as in the
Financial Statements for 2012. Key indicator calculations remain unchanged.

The figures presented in this release are audited.
