    RSA(R) CONFERENCE, SAN FRANCISCO, April 10 /PRNewswire/ --
 RSA Security Inc. (Nasdaq:   RSAS), the most trusted name in e-security(TM),
 announced today that Ericsson, the world's leading telecommunications
 supplier, has chosen RSA BSAFE(R) encryption software to secure its entire
 line of mobile Internet-enabled terminals and phones.  RSA Security will
 enable Ericsson to embed a high-performance, reduced-footprint version of the
 RSA BSAFE encryption software in its suite of wireless devices and provide its
 users with the same proven security available to wired Internet users.
     "RSA BSAFE security software offers a powerful developer solution
 consisting of strong, high performance cryptography and code. The code is
 optimized to fit in memory constrained devices such as wireless phones and
 terminals, allowing Ericsson to offer new mobile Internet applications and
 services to its customers," said Bill McQuaide, vice president of product
 marketing at RSA Security. "Armed with the strong security foundation inherent
 in RSA Security's core cryptography products, Ericsson can provide its
 customers with a high level of confidence that their data is protected when
 they connect to the wireless Web. In addition, RSA BSAFE is designed to
 simplify and reduce development time, enabling Ericsson to get to market
 faster with wireless products that meet the needs of its customers."
     The RSA Security Wireless Security Portfolio is a solution that comprises
 RSA Security products, strategic partners like Ericsson and services that are
 designed to secure wireless data communications. The Ericsson R380 phone
 already interoperates with RSA SecurID(R) authentication technology to provide
 strong user authentication, and now Ericsson has expanded its relationship
 with RSA Security by selecting RSA BSAFE encryption software to fulfill its
 wireless security requirements. Whether companies are building next-generation
 wireless devices or looking for products they can add to their infrastructure
 today, the RSA Security Wireless Security Portfolio provides companies and
 technology providers with the choices to add the right level of security they
 need to mitigate the risks of wireless business.
     The RSA BSAFE line of security software is embedded in today's most
 successful Internet applications, including Web browsers, wireless devices,
 e-commerce servers, e-mail systems and virtual private network products. Built
 to provide implementations of standards such as SSL, SMIME, WTLS, IPSec and
 PKCS, RSA BSAFE products can save developers time and risk in their
 development schedules.
