Apr 10, 2001, 01:00 ET from RSA Security Inc.

    RSA(R) CONFERENCE, SAN FRANCISCO, April 10 /PRNewswire/ --
 RSA Security Inc. (Nasdaq:   RSAS), the most trusted name in e-security(TM),
 today announced that Deloitte & Touche LLP has been offered the benefits of
 RSA Security's SecureWorld(TM) Consultant/System Integrator Program. This
 offering will provide Deloitte & Touche consultants with training and
 certification, enabling them to install RSA Keon(R) software at customer sites
 throughout the world.  RSA Security expects its Program to help facilitate the
 global adoption of public key infrastructure (PKI) technology in e-business.
 This technology, although offered by a number of security software companies,
 has added layers of security with RSA Keon software.  Both firms intend to
 work to help their respective clients deploy digital certificates for secure
 communications and transactions.
     "Security is paramount in today's e-business model and public key
 infrastructure is one of the most effective technologies available to help
 ensure trusted transaction over the Internet," said Bill Kobel, a principal in
 Deloitte & Touche's Enterprise Risk Services (ERS) practice, responsible for
 their Secure e-Business Technology Center.  "We look forward to working with
 RSA Security to help educate our customers on the importance of digital
 certificates in e-business transactions."
     "Deloitte & Touche's support of the software is affirmation of the value
 that PKI technology brings to global e-business," said Scott Schnell, senior
 vice president of marketing and corporate development at RSA Security.  "We
 are looking forward to working together to help bring trust to today's
 e-business model."
     "We have the depth and breadth of experience to understand the business
 needs that drive secure e-business solutions -- and the technologies that make
 them possible," said Kobel. "With services ranging from the creation of
 communities of trust to technology infrastructure, from network-controlled
 penetration testing to vendor product evaluation and testing, as well as ERP
 security and integrity consulting, we are a leader in creating and
 implementing secure e-business solutions that meet our clients' e-business
 needs. We are pleased to strengthen our relationship with RSA Security and
 bring secure and meaningful solutions to our clients through the ERS
 practice."
