Subject: [announce] OASIS Member News -- DataPower Named Network Computing Product of the Year

DataPower is Awarded Network Computing Well-Connected Infrastructure Product
of the Year

DataPower XA35 XML Accelerator Tops Overall Infrastructure Category Due to
Rare Combination of Performance & Intelligence

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.-March 28, 2003 - DataPower Technology, Inc., the leading
provider of intelligent XML-Aware network infrastructure today announced
that its XA35 XML Accelerator(tm) has won the highly competitive and
prestigious Network Computing Magazine Well-Connected Product of the Year
award for the overall category of Infrastructure.  Of the 109 companies
considered only 7 were named best in their respective categories.

In a previously published Network Computing test evaluation that served as
the basis for judging, the XA35 was lauded as a "mean, green XSLT machine
that leaves other XML processors in the dust", processing XML over 60 times
faster than software-based products. The review is available online at

"This award is great validation of the performance and intelligence
delivered by the XG3 XML processing engine that powers both the XA35 and the
XS40 XML Security Gateway," said Eugene Kuznetsov, founder, chairman and CTO
at DataPower Technology.  "Unlike other industry awards, the Well-Connected
award is based on hands-on testing, making it especially meaningful to us.
Our idea of intelligent XML-aware network devices securing or accelerating
enterprise applications, of wirespeed XML processing in the network
infrastructure, was once radical but is now broadly accepted as indicated by
our growing customer base. Winning the overall category of Infrastructure is
a testament both to the past four years of great engineering work  and the
XML-Aware Networking vision DataPower pioneered in 1999."

Powered by DataPower's patent-pending XG3 technology, the XA35 is the only
true network device capable of offloading XML processing from servers and
delivering order-of-magnitude improvements in application performance. This
XML offloading is different from simple XML  switching designed only to
redirect e-business documents to a specific server for processing. With
support for integrated SSL acceleration, XML compression and Gigabit
Ethernet, DataPower's XA35 is an intelligent, self-learning appliance that
does not require any application code changes. As a result, customers can
install the XA35 in hours and get immediate performance benefits.. For more
information on the XA35, please visit

Network Computing's Infrastructure category is a large field and includes
switched and routed LAN, WAN, and MAN products along with operating systems,
directory and naming services, load balancing, physical-layer connectivity
solutions, power management, and facilities design and operation.  DataPower
won the sub-category of Acceleration and went on to win the overall
Infrastructure category, beating out winners in the categories of Content
Switching, 10 Gigabit Switching and DNS Server Appliances. "When you combine
raw power with intelligence, you get the DataPower XA35 XML Accelerator,
which impressed us so much we named it this year's Infrastructure product of
the year." said Peter Morrissey, full-time faculty member of Syracuse
University's School of Information Studies, and a contributing editor and
columnist for Network Computing.

"The Well-Connected Awards are the only industry awards given by
technologists based on real-world product testing and evaluation. We view
all products, technologies and services from the same perspective as our
readers -our peers-do," said Fritz Nelson, VP and Publisher of Network
Computing." This is an important distinction from any other award program -
the products selected in the Well-Connected Awards are unique because they
have been tested over an enterprise by our editors themselves. They are
truly innovative solutions that work."

A complete list of all  winners, finalists, categories and products will be
highlighted in the May 1st issue of Network Computing, on the Network
Computing website http://www.networkcomputing.com/ and on
