New Appointments to Advisory Board Advance Executive Leadership Marking Continued Success and Data Masking Technology Leadership

Fremont, Calif., April 14, 2009 – DataGuise (, an innovator of data security and compliance solutions for enterprises, today announced the addition of two well-regarded leaders in their respective industries to the company’s Advisory Board. Aimed at both product development and market development, the DataGuise Advisory Board will guide the company on matters of customer support, sales, marketing, business development, engineering and operations. The appointment of Inder P. Singh, President and CEO of NexTrends Solutions and Mark Hoover, CEO of Vidder and a Venture Partner at Woodside Fund brings extensive technology, market development and organizational management expertise to DataGuise as the company gains momentum as an information security leader.

“We are very pleased to have such an experienced team of executives on our Advisory Board and look forward to their insight and continued guidance,” said Manmeet Singh, CEO of DataGuise. “Their collective experience, business acumen, and contact networks will be a tremendous asset to the company as we scale to meet the growing demand for solutions that prevent unauthorized access to sensitive corporate data.”

Inder P. Singh has over 30 years of experience in information technology, business and operations in the financial services industry. Singh has been a visionary in the evolution of next-generation financial payment technologies and until 2004, was executive vice president and Global CIO of Visa International with responsibilities to oversee integrity, interoperability and security of Visa’s technology and processing infrastructure. Prior to Visa, Singh held C-level positions at ExlServices (NASDAQ: EXLS), Quintant, a BPO company that was sold to I Gate (NASDAQ: IGTE) and Card Capture Services (CCS), owner of the third largest ATM network in the United States until acquisition by E*Trade (NASDAQ: ETFC).

Mark Hoover has been involved in the technology and market development of networking technologies over a period that also spans nearly 30 years. Prior to Vidder, Hoover was president of Acuitive, a strategic marketing consulting firm where he developed extensive techniques and processes to validate customer and market demand and developed winning product and business strategies that helped Acuitive clients, including Brocade, Alteon Websystems, Netscreen, Maverick Semiconductor, Redline Networks, and many others, achieve more than $30 billion in exit valuations.

Over the past year, DataGuise has strengthened its position in the industry, announcing the most comprehensive data masking product suite on the market and executing on its go-to-market strategy of delivering these solutions to companies ranging from small and medium businesses to global enterprises. DataGuise recently announced executive appointments in the areas of customer advocacy, marketing, and sales to address the growing interest in the company’s next-generation product portfolio.
