SAN FRANCISCO -- April 2, 2013

Mocana, the mobile security leader, today announced that Samsung has
integrated Mocana’s KeyVPN™ product into Samsung’s new KNOX security solution
that addresses the mobile security needs of enterprise IT. KeyVPN’s multi-VPN
technology enables the Samsung KNOX solution to segregate and secure corporate
data, addressing the growing trend of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) in global
enterprises.

"Mocana is a trusted technology partner for enterprise security. With Mocana’s
VPN technology, Samsung KNOX enterprise customers can have a high level of
confidence in the security of their data-in-motion,” said Dr. Injong Rhee,
Senior Vice President, Technology Strategy Group at Samsung Electronics.

Kurt Stammberger, CISSP, Vice President of Market Development for Mocana,
said, “By using KeyVPN technology, Samsung KNOX advances to the front of the
line for secure enterprise and BYOD purchase decisions.”

Debuted at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2013 in Barcelona, Samsung KNOX aligns
with the ongoing Samsung for Enterprise (SAFE) program as part of a continued
effort to promote the readiness of its devices for enterprise use. By
incorporating Security Enhanced (SE) Android™ and integrity management
services that are implemented in both hardware and the Android framework,
Samsung KNOX offers a container solution that separates business and personal
use of a mobile device, and provides reassurance and convenience for IT
departments looking to implement and manage BYOD strategies. Easily accessible
via an application icon on the home screen, the Samsung KNOX container
presents a variety of enterprise applications in a secure environment,
including email, browser, contact, calendar, file sharing, collaboration, CRM
and business intelligence applications. These business applications can be
integrated with Mocana’s KeyVPN virtual private networking software by IT
manager’s decision.

Mocana KeyVPN is a complete, full-featured virtual private network solution
with a simple GUI that is designed to allow manufacturers like Samsung to
easily integrate VPN functionality into Android devices that need to encrypt
communications for business. KeyVPN is based on Mocana’s award-winning
NanoSec™ code base, which has been certified by the VPN consortium (VPNC) for
interoperability with all leading VPN gateway appliances and vendors. KeyVPN
features automatic VPN initiation, multiple gateway handling to connect to
multiple VPNs, network-to-network roaming and handoff, and advanced
split-tunneling capabilities that improve user control and battery life. More
