SAN MATEO, Calif. -- May 8, 2013

Keynote® (NASDAQ: KEYN), the global leader in Internet and mobile cloud
testing and monitoring, today announced that Shawn White, vice president of
operations, will be speaking at the Security 500 Conference on a panel
entitled, “Cyber Warfare on Your Enterprise: Is that Real or Hype?”

Shawn will share the latest data Keynote has uncovered regarding ongoing
aggressive attacks on the websites of leading U.S. banks, as well as Keynote’s
experience in identifying DDoS (distributed denial of service) attacks and how
companies are learning to better protect themselves. He will also discuss the
evolution of DDoS attacks and their increased sophistication, plus the best
practices around monitoring from end user locations, continual load-testing,
testing 3rd-party content providers, etc. to quickly identify problems. Using
Keynote’s advanced monitoring tools Keynote and its customers are able to
identify downtimes immediately, as well as root cause. Keynote customers
include major websites both globally and across all major industries.

“We have data showing substantially increased downtimes for leading U.S. banks
due to cyber-attacks. As attacks increase, site operators are looking for new
ways both to identify and prevent a DDoS,” said Shawn White, vice president of
operations at Keynote. “24/7 site monitoring using sophisticated tools such as
those provided by Keynote allow organizations to see exactly where performance
is impacted and take immediate corrective action based on concrete data.”

The panel will discuss how leading organizations are being proactive to limit
cyber threats. This includes: the critical gaps between law enforcement and
the private sector to share threat information, take action against criminals
and address vulnerabilities; How leading enterprises are organizing security
programs to maximize defenses against cyber threats; and the most common
vulnerabilities that enterprises fail to address, leaving them open for

In addition to Shawn, speakers on the Cyber Warfare panel will include: Brent
