Almi Invest and Stockholms Affärsänglar invest in Versatile

Stockholm, Sweden, March 4, 2011 – Versatile Security Sweden AB develops products for IT security using encryption, PKI and smart cards. Versatile Security's state of the art products provide high security, quick integration and focus on user friendliness. Cost efficient security systems for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) are rare to find. Versatile Security's products fill this void. The products are sold mainly through a distribution network that covers Europe, US, Middle East, and Africa.

"This investment gives Versatile Security a capital injection that enables continued and more rapid expansion. Furthermore, we are very pleased to welcome some high profile professionals to our board of directors," said Per-Anders Fjärdsäter, CEO and President of Versatile Security.

vSEC:CMS is a smart card management system. The system is delivered on a secure USB token with the application, configuration settings and credentials residing securely on the USB token, thereby removing the requirement to invest in expensive server hardware. It is Microsoft's "best practice" for Windows domain logon to use smart cards and their new operating system, Windows 7, has been greatly improved to support the use of smart cards.

"Versatile Security's products have been very well received by both customers and distributors, and the management team has an excellent track record and an impressive reputation in the business," said Gunnar Lerjestad at Stockholms Affärsänglar.

Besides vSEC:CMS, Versatile Security also offers: vSEC:ID, vSEC:USB and vSEC:MAIL.

The investors are Almi Invest, Stockholms Affärsänglar and a small number of private investors.

"The company is focusing on the SME market, an area where the need for this type of products is increasing. We believe that Versatile Security has excellent potential to expand much further," said Anna Söderholm, Investment manager at Almi Invest.
