Title: [News] DataPower Named to AlwaysOn List of Top 100 Private Companies

Leading XML-Aware Networking Company Selected for Its Market Traction and Technology Innovation

Cambridge, Mass. - June 24, 2003 - DataPower Technology, Inc. (www.datapower.com), the leading provider of intelligent XML-Aware Network infrastructure, today announced its inclusion on the AlwaysOn(tm) (AO) Top 100 Private Companies list.  AlwaysOn, the media company that covers innovation in technology and business, compiled the list with assistance from KPMG's emerging business practice, KPMG 1Start.  The two groups surveyed more than 1,000 venture investors, investment bankers, top entrepreneurs and executives, who nominated more than 700 companies for the competition. The full list can be found at www.alwayson-network.com.

Tony Perkins, AlwaysOn editor, and KPMG 1Start, identified the AO100 companies based on their innovation and demonstrated leadership among their peers in at least two areas: market traction measured by revenue or customer growth and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players.

In explaining the selection process, Mr. Perkins notes: "Our survey proves that private company innovation is alive and thriving. We believe that many of the companies funded in the last 12 months will end up being some of the biggest names associated with the Internet.  To raise money and win customers in this market, private companies must show that their products and services are an order of magnitude above what currently exists in the marketplace."

"With the most customers for both our XML Web Services security and XML acceleration products, DataPower's first-mover advantage in this fast growing market for XML-Aware Networking, and our recently announced distribution to the Japanese market for the first time, DataPower continues to demonstrate our position as the leader in XML-Aware Networking.  We greatly appreciate that AlwaysOn has recognized us for our efforts and success and has honored us with this Top 100 selection," said Jim Ricotta, CEO and president at DataPower Technology Inc.

A reception will be held honoring the winners on July 15, 2003 at AO2003: The Innovation Summit, taking place July 15-17 at Stanford Law School on the Stanford University Campus. The event will feature over 60 keynote-level speakers,

15 sessions, and 2 days of conversation about what's driving the next wave of innovation.  For more information visit: http://www.alwayson-network.com/events/index.php
