Decru Expands Professional Services and Support

Redwood City, Calif. - October 31, 2006 -- Decru, a NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP) company, today announced the expansion of its services program, including key additions to professional services, technical support, and training offerings. These investments will simplify storage security initiatives for Decru customers, providing them with the expertise to design, implement, and manage security for data at rest across their enterprise.

Securing data at rest is a new frontier for many organizations. Decru® storage security appliances have removed many of the limitations traditionally associated with encryption, including performance degradation, operational complexity, and lack of support for heterogeneous environments. However, when considering encryption for data stored over time and across the enterprise, companies must think about long-term key management, key security, and disaster recovery. The Decru service, support, and training organizations offer the experience and skills to lead companies through these critical considerations.

Decru Professional Services
The Decru services organization draws on years of expertise in deploying security solutions for global enterprises, and is now expanding its capabilities to incorporate security assessments and strategy, discovery and design, and implementation and knowledge transfer. Decru Professional Services offers a range of benefits, freeing organizations to focus on their core business while accelerating the creation of a secure storage environment. Throughout each engagement, Decru offers training and knowledge transfer to help the organization's IT staff successfully operate and evolve their infrastructure while addressing changing compliance and privacy requirements.
