EdgeWave, is a computer security company based out of San Diego, California. It specializes in email and web security. Originally founded as St. Bernard Software, since 2011 the company has operated as EdgeWave.


Beginning as St. Bernard Software in 1995, and was known for delivering Open File Manager, software for backup packages that insured the protection of data in motion.

In 2000, St. Bernard acquired and released UpdateEXPERT, a patch management software. During the same year, St. Bernard acquired Internet Products, and entered the Web filtering market with the iPrism Web Filter.

In 2006, St. Bernard acquired Singlefin,[1] a provider of managed security and business services. As a result of this acquisition, the company introduced LivePrism, a hosted email, instant message (IM) and Web filtering type thing. The company also helped to pioneer hybrid security technology with the introduction of a hybrid platform that combined appliances, software, and hosted security. In July 2006, St. Bernard completed a merger with Sand Hill IT Security Acquisition Corporation and became a public company,[2] trading under the ticker (OTCBB: SBSW).

Over time the company's product portfolio included a variety of security solutions including open file management, patch management, Web filtering, email filtering, and hosted services. In order to focus its resources, the company decided to divest some of its products so it could focus its resources on Secure Content Management.

In 2010, St. Bernard acquired[3][4] Red Condor, a provider of fully managed email security.

In 2011, it officially changed its name to EdgeWave.[5][6]
