DALLAS, TX -- Citadel Security Software Inc., a leader in enterprise vulnerability management and policy enforcement solutions, announced today that the company has received an order from a government system integrator requesting additional services related to an expanded utilization of Citadel's Hercules(r) capabilities for vulnerability remediation. The services valued at approximately $875,000 are expected to be performed during Citadel's third quarter ending September 30, 2005.

"We see this new commitment from the government marketplace as a strong affirmation of the importance of a comprehensive vulnerability management solution," said David Donovan, Vice President, Public Sector of Citadel Security Software. "We are honored to expand our involvement with this important customer, and look forward to furthering this customer's success in enhancing the security of its worldwide systems."

Government organizations are becoming ever more vigilant in minimizing security risks and ensuring an efficient way to audit policies and track compliance. Hercules can help, protecting an organization's network against all five classes of vulnerabilities -- software defects, unsecured accounts, unnecessary services, mis-configurations and backdoors -- across a multi-platform, multi-device environment.

With the largest library of tested vulnerability remedies across Windows and UNIX platforms and interoperability with industry leading network scanners and vulnerability assessment tools, Citadel gives government organizations the ability to avoid problems, resolve issues in real time, and cut down on its remediation effort. Hercules allows the organization to import and aggregate data from multiple sources, review, approve and customize resolutions, and systematically deploy vulnerability fixes.
