Vordel’s new Web services security product acclaimed by industry experts

November 12, 2001, Dublin, Ireland and Boston, MA - Vordel, the Web services
security company, today unveiled its strategy to lower the barriers that prevent
companies from adopting and deploying Web services in their organizations. This
announcement received praise from several leading industry specialists.

The company’s flagship product, Vordel TalkXML™ Version 3.0, has been designed
to provide security, accountability, integration and performance for business
transactions over the Internet. TalkXML will be released on November 19th.

“Companies are eager to avail of the benefits made possible by Web services”,
explained Derek O’Carroll, Director of Business Development of Vordel. “Web
services offer the very real chance to integrate business processes over public
networks, thereby enabling companies to accelerate their entry into new markets,
extend their existing services to reach and retain customers, and streamline
operating efficiencies.

“However, this opportunity is matched by the challenges posed,” O’Carroll
asserted. “Enabling integration between organizations’ different systems
requires a product that can provide a secure, integrated, high-performance
environment for Web services based transactions.

existing IT investments, reducing the pain of integration and ensures that
companies get the optimal performance rates for secured data over public

Pete Lindstrom, Director of Security Strategies at Hurwitz Group, confirmed the
demand for such technology: "The need for security in this new world of Web

the fly; never before has information been so transient.

"Vordel is a leader in the Web services security space with its unique TalkXML
technology, which allows organizations to secure Web services-based

Ed Simon, co-author of the XML Signature and XML Encryption specifications,
reinforced this opinion, stating that “Vordel was one of the first companies to
recognize the incredible synergy of PKI and XML working together. Now that the
need for integrating beyond the firewall through secure communications based on
XML and PKI technologies is becoming widely accepted, the time has come to make
such integration practical”.

“I congratulate Vordel on its release of TalkXML v3.0,” said Simon, “a product
that enables disparate systems to be integrated, and delivers the security
framework essential to successfully deploy Web services.”
