Hill Top Security Secures First Customers for Military-grade, Cyber Security Platform

KELOWNA, British Columbia, September 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

Hill Top Security, Inc. ("HTSI" or the "Company") and Big Wind Capital Inc. (CSE: BWC) ("Big Wind") announced that HTSI has signed service agreements with two companies, that have large government and commercial customers, to provide its military-grade, patented, cyber security platform. The Vauban platform, which became commercially-available in August, 2017, provides companies with a unique level of risk assessment to help prevent and respond to cyber security attacks, including ransomware, DDoS and malware. The Company recently signed a letter of intent with Big Wind, pursuant to which Big Wind intends to acquire various interests in HTSI and its assets (the "Transaction").

Hill Top's Vauban Cyber Security Platform 

- Military-grade cybersecurity platform, called Vauban, aimed at small to medium-sized businesses (SMB).

- Unique, world-leading ability to analyze and validate potential system threats - both internal and external.

- Patent filed 'Computerized System and Method for Providing Cybersecurity Detection and Response Functionality', covers Vauban's multi-layered threat assessment system and processes.

- Vauban has been developed by a team of security experts with substantial military and commercial experience and the Company holds a Top-Secret clearance based on the work it currently carries out for the U.S. government.

Corby Marshall, CEO of Hill Top Security, said, "We are very pleased with the strong level of interest we have received, in the short time since launching our new cyber security platform. Most small and medium-sized businesses simply don't have the resources or personnel to cope with the volume of cyber threats faced by companies today. Our unique threat assessment technology allows even small teams to identify, prioritize and react far more quickly when under cyber attack, and when it comes to protecting your business, speed and accuracy are vital."
