HONG KONG -- ServGate Technologies - the leading provider of integrated, adaptive network security platforms - today announced that SINA.com.HK, a member of SINA Corporation (NASDAQ: SINA), and a leading online media company and value-added information service provider in Hong Kong, has selected ServGate to provide comprehensive email filtering for SINA's registered MySinaMail users.

With 3.5 million registered users, SINA.com.HK is one of the biggest portals in Hong Kong. Due to the impressive growth rate, SINA HK chose ServGate because of the EdgeForceR platform's unique flexibility to accommodate its ever-increasing registered user universe of webmail customers. Specifically for SINA HK's MySinaMail deployment, ServGate designed a multi-tiered phalanx of EdgeForce platforms running spam and virus screening applications by McAfeeR whereby purging all malicious code - including many phishing, spyware and blended malware threats - from user accounts.

"Consumer and small business users of SINA HK webmail want assurance from a trusted provider that their messages will not fall victim to a virus hacker nor disrupt their computers," said Ms Jennie So, General Manager, SINA HK. "MySinaMail users now have a new level of comfort and confidence through our 'Protected by ServGate' implementation."

ServGate is the developer of the award-winning unified threat management (UTM) system, the EdgeForce platform, offering integrated spam and virus screening applications by McAfee or CAR plus web filtering by SurfControlR, intrusion prevention, firewall and VPN services. EdgeForce platforms also uniquely perform Full Context InspectionT at the gateway, which provides the deepest level of blended protection possible in a network-based solution by reconstructing data packets into a discernible format while performing content filtering services at the application layer. The EdgeForce platform's modular architecture enables new best-in-class services to be activated on all EdgeForce systems, scaling with the growth of the customer's business and network needs, and adapting to the shifting threat environment.

"ServGate is pleased to work with SINA.com.HK, which represents a large-scale incremental build-out commensurate with SINA HK's expected growth ramp," said Mr. Atchison Frazer, Vice President of Marketing, ServGate. "With the 'Protected by ServGate' icon on every MySinaMail web page, SINA.com.HK's webmail users can be assured of the safety and reliability of their communications enabled by ServGate's 'green' security matrix and assurance of a safe information superhighway."
