Subject: OASIS Member News-DataPower Expands Global Reach of XAN with Avantgarde Reseller Relationship


German System Integrator Selects DataPower's High-Performance XML Security
and Acceleration Devices to Eliminate Customers' XML Web Services Pains

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - October 14, 2003 - DataPower Technology, Inc., the
leading provider of intelligent XML-Aware Network infrastructure, announced
today that it has signed a reseller agreement for the DataPower XS40 XML
Security Gateway(tm) and the DataPower XA35 XML Accelerator(tm) with
Avantgarde to address XML Web Services security and XML performance hurdles
facing corporations in Germany.  Avantgarde is a system integrator that
specializes in solutions for web based supervision and billing of technical
devices, security for Web Services applications and security architectures
for IT infrastructures in medium-sized and large-scale companies.
Avantgarde selected DataPower's XML-Aware Networking devices based on the
market success of the DataPower XS40 XML Security Gateway and its ability to
provide centralized Web Services security with XML filtering, XDoS (XML
Denial of Service) protection, XML Schema validation and other essential
functions without performance degradation for a key Avantgarde customer.
(See today's associated announcement, "GFKL Financial Services Selects
DataPower for Airtight Web Services Security and XML Firewall Functions.")

"Avantgarde's strength is in our ability to develop strategies that ensure
implementation and secure operation of complex systems like ERP, finances,
customer relationship management (CRM) and business intelligence (BI)," said
Alf Eckardt, CTO at Avantgarde.  "After extensive testing of products that
included real customer test scenarios at GFKL, DataPower demonstrated the
most comprehensive XML Web Services security and fastest XML application
performance solution to meet the high demands of our customers.  As
demonstrated already with our first customer in GFKL, Avantgarde sees
tremendous business opportunity with DataPower's XML-Aware Networking

"In a short time, DataPower has generated true global demand for our
XML-Aware Networking products and their ability to eliminate the security
and performance penalties associated with XML applications and Web Services
with a simple, easy to install network device," said Ben Wen, Senior
Director of Channels at DataPower Technology Inc.  "DataPower welcomes the
addition of Avantgarde as a channel partner in Germany, and we look forward
to a very successful relationship based on the customer traction we are
seeing already."

DataPower's XML-Aware Networking Products
* XS40 Security Gateway: DataPower's XS40 - powered by the fastest XML
processing with DataPower's XG3(tm) - is a diskless "drop-in" device
purpose-built to provide complete XML web services security with the
wirespeed performance necessary for robust enterprise applications and
without coding or changes to existing applications.  Like the first routers,
firewalls or load balancers that came before it and offloaded complex,
processing intensive application functionality to network hardware, the XS40
combines raw power and sophisticated secure algorithms.  The XS40 is
designed with broadest security intelligence and functionality including XML
firewall, XDoS protection, SOAP filtering, access control, schema
validation, digital signatures, and encryption of field-level XML content
for all XML Web Service message flows.  Other features include SAML, XACML,
XKMS, LDAP, and RADIUS compliance as well as XML/SOAP routing, SSL
acceleration, service virtualization, and centralized policy management.
* XA35 XML Accelerator: Using the same XG3 technology, the XA35 is a
diskless networking device designed to offload burdensome XML processing
from resource-constrained servers.  The XA35 delivers order-of-magnitude
performance and scalability improvements to XML-based applications, and
seamlessly integrates into existing networks within hours without the need
to change or tune existing application code.
