Cognosec AB: Cognosec AB awarded Intel Security Platinum Partner status

MEDIA PRESS RELEASE

International leader in IT security, GRC and PCI services, Cognosec AB
(Nasdaq: COGS), has announced that Intel Security has awarded it
Security Platinum Partner Status, the highest level attainable under
the Intel Security Partner Program.

The award applies to the Company's operations in Europe, the Middle
East and Africa, including the UK, Germany, Sweden, the United Arab
Emirates, Kenya and South Africa. In addition, Cognosec's South
African subsidiary DRS was the first to achieve the Intel Security
Service Delivery Specialisation globally. This specialisation will
allow the company to enhance its offering by providing a complete
Intel Security service to customers.

"To be awarded Security Platinum Partner status is the greatest
achievement in the Intel Security Partner Program. The same applies
to the Service Delivery Specialisation award. This reinforces the
fact that we are a top tier IT provider, and committed to offering
our customers the very best service and products," says Robert Brown,
CEO of Cognosec AB.

Intel Security Platinum Partner status can only be achieved through a
demonstrated commitment to customer satisfaction, competency, and
revenue growth. "Platinum Partners have proven solution and services
capabilities to manage the largest and most complex security
deployments. As a result, these Partners receive the highest level of
benefits and the option to achieve a Support Provider
Specialisation," says Rob Percy, Intel EMEA Channel Programs Manager,
"Cognosec are an experienced and respected partner with a successful
track record in understanding the security challenges facing us
today, and have a proven ability providing solutions that deliver the
business outcomes required. Their expertise will continue to be a
valuable asset to Intel Security and the customers that we both
serve."

Brown adds that the Intel Security Partner Program was designed with
growth and flexibility in mind, and that Cognosec AB - and all the
subsidiary companies - are looking forward to growing the partnership
with Intel in the years ahead. "It aims to meet the needs of
partners' growing businesses. As they invest more in the relationship
with Intel Security via certifications and training, they gain
greater rewards, and increased commitment from the company. As a
long-term Intel Security partner, we have seen the support that the
company offers, and our dedication to gaining the highest rank has
been validated in this achievement."

Intel Security Solution Providers are reseller partners with one or
more areas of expertise among Intel's Security solutions, Brown
explains. "Solution Providers are able to tailor the programme to fit
their specific interests, as well as business needs and goals. An
example would be taking a sales approach, with technology support and
implementation as the focus."

The group boasts several other Intel Security certifications, which
are individual designations removed from the general partner
programme levels or specialisations.

"We have employees who carry a full range of product certifications.
In the Intel Security Certified Product Specialist, we offer Data
Loss Prevent Endpoint (DLPe), ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO), Host
Intrusion Prevention (HIPs), Network Security Platform (NPS/IPS),
Next Generation Firewall (NGFW), and Security Information and Event
Management (SIEM)."

"We are dedicated to helping our customers' organisations run better
and smarter by providing intelligent security solutions with key
partners like Intel," adds Brown. "We are delighted to be recognised
by Intel Security, and raised to Platinum Partner status, for the
continual support, expertise and solutions we're able to offer to our
customers - all of which we will continue to improve on in the years
to come."
