Vordel offers early access to XML Security product for next-generation
partner integration

"One of first vendors to leverage the latest XML-based security
standards" - Burton Group

18 June, 2002 - Boston, MA and Dublin, Ireland - Vordel, the Web
services security company, today launched the Early Access
program, for the forthcoming release of its XML Security product,
VordelSecure 1.1

The VordelSecure Early Access Program will allow qualifying companies
to demonstrate and justify the use of Web services to themselves and
their partners, by addressing the security challenges presented by
their deployment.

VordelSecure 1.1 is the latest release of Vordel's solution to Web
services partner integration security issues, providing open-standards
authentication, accountability and authorization.

The program is applicable even to a trial Web services deployment, and
includes complimentary support from Vordel.

Norbert Mikula, Director of Web Services Technology at Intel
Corporation said; "XML Web Services provide opportunities for
corporations to introduce improved efficiencies and enhance return on
investment for software systems.

The resolution of the security and performance challenges being
addressed by Vordel are critical to the success of Web services. The
combination of Vordel's focus on security and the performance benefits
of Intel Itanium(r) processor based servers provide a great foundation
for Web services."

"Many organizations are planning to deploy Web services in order to
take advantage of the efficiencies enabled by XML-based integration,"
said Mark O'Neill, Vordel CTO. "For partner integration projects,
clients understand that the introduction of Web services presents a
security challenge. VordelSecure provides the first solution to
this security challenge - providing both access control (security

to deliver business services over the Web."

"Vordel supports these new XML security specifications in
including SOAP, SAML and WS-Security as well as more established
security technologies such as digital certificates and SSL," continued

"This ensures that the user base of an XML Web service is not limited
to the users of one security technology, while not compromising on

Derek O'Carroll, CEO of Vordel went on to say that "the Early
Access program allows these companies to use VordelSecure for Web
services security, in order to demonstrate that the use of Web
is indeed a viable proposition".

"Web services technology providers, in conjunction with security
provided by Vordel, have significant advantages over leased lines or
VPNs, in terms of ease of deployment and cost." continued O'Carroll.

"Vordel's Early Access Program will mean that security does not need
be left as a 'last-minute' decision."
