For Immediate Release – April 14, 2004

Stony Hill Management, Inc. and SAINT Corporation Announce Their Partnership

April 14, 2004 – Stony Hill Management, Inc. (Fredonia, WI) and SAINT Corporation (Bethesda, MD) announced that they have entered into a partnership to bring SAINT's award-winning vulnerability scanning solutions to the home healthcare and hospice markets. SAINT's products will be bundled with Stony Hill's GetHIP-Security software to be released in July 2004.

Stony Hill Management CEO, Thomas Williams, noted that his company undertook an extensive evaluation of security products before selecting SAINT as its strategic partner. “We began work on our GetHIP-Security software last year, and quickly recognized that the challenges presented by HIPAA's security requirements were much different than those for privacy. Security threats are constantly changing and the issue is much broader than regulatory compliance. We focused our attention on vulnerability scanning as an essential technology tool our customers would need to truly address the security issue. SAINT's scanning and report capabilities, user interface, and affordability sold us.”

The SAINT® vulnerability assessment software is used by network administrators and IT security personnel to:

  • Detect and fix possible weaknesses in network security before intruders can exploit them.
  • Anticipate and prevent common system vulnerabilities.
  • Demonstrate compliance with current government security regulations such as HIPAA and GLBA.

According to Billy Austin, SAINT's Chief Security Officer, the company's scanning technology is used by dozens of high-profile organizations throughout the U.S. “Many of our clients are large governmental entities that need to protect highly sensitive information. This is our first venture into the healthcare market and we're delighted to team with Stony Hill. This is a great opportunity to make our products available to organizations we traditionally would not pursue.”

Both companies expect their products will be well-received by home care and hospice providers. “Based on the success of our GetHIP-Privacy software, I anticipate an enthusiastic reaction when we roll out our security product,” Williams said. He added, “The addition of SAINT will add considerably to this excitement.”

SAINT's scanning technology can be licensed for use on site or scans can be performed remotely. The company has recently introduced its SAINTbox™ security appliance, which both Austin and Williams expect will be very attractive to smaller organizations.
