October 15, 2012

EVEN YEHUDA, Israel, October 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

Security Solutions, announced that Vente-privee.com, a global leader in online private
sales, has successfully implemented its SmartCipher(TM) solution to protect its sensitive

Information leakage prevention is one of Vente-privee.com priorities. The company
needed a security solution that provides control of business data traveling outside the
organization’s perimeter by email, USB or other mobile device.

Covertix SmartCipher is an independent data-centric security system that protects and
monitors sensitive data by traveling with the files inside and outside the organization.
The system automatically tags digital assets according to file location, content and/or
context, without any involvement of the user, and attaches a patented ‘smart policy’ to
each file, which continuously tracks and secures it. If sensitive information is copied,
printed, burned to a CD or downloaded to a USB, the system can either issue an alert or
block the activity.

“As opposed to most available security solutions that require the document owner to
activate security policies, SmartCipher provides automatic protection transparent to
users” said Covertix CEO Doron Zinger, “thus it provides the best available solution to
security threats resulting from authorized users accidentally or maliciously sharing
sensitive documents. SmartCipher combines the advantages of a Rights Management system
with the discovery features of a DLP system.”

Mr. Nicolas Pellegrin Information Security Officer at Vente-privee.com said: “Covertix
fulfilled all of our expectations. We managed to protect our business-critical information
with minimal interruption to operations.”
