Secure Computing Corporation (Nasdaq:SCUR), a leading provider of enterprise access control solutions, Tuesday announced the appointment of Ker Gibbs, an industry veteran, as vice president of Asia Pacific. Mr. Gibbs will use his ten plus years experience managing Asia operations for Silicon Valley based companies to introduce Secure's solutions to resellers and enterprise customers throughout Asia.

Secure Computing's suite of highly scalable, simple to deploy products is designed to protect today's complex and expanded networks. Secure's most recent product announcement, SafeWord(TM)

Prior to joining Secure, Ker served as managing director, Asia, for Slam Dunk Networks, a network security company. He is also recognized for his tenure with NBC Internet, where he served as
president and chief operating officer of the company's Hong Kong-based joint venture and for his years with Apple Computer where he directed Apple's Hong Kong-based software subsidiary. Gibbs has been profiled in the South China Morning Post, Capital magazine (Hong Kong), and Mac Bros (Japan).

"We are thrilled to have someone of Ker's caliber on board," said Vince Schiavo, senior vice president of sales for Secure Computing. "The maturity of our products along with the requirement for utmost security within the enterprise makes this an ideal time expand our presence in Asia."
