DataPower's Eugene Kuznetsov named a TOP CTO for His XML-Aware
Networking Vision

InfoWorld Top 25 CTO Ranking Recognizes Kuznetsov's Creation &
Leadership for the "Hot" Category of Application-Aware Networking
Dedicated to the Efficiencies & Scale of Moving Application Processing
into the Network

CAMBRIDGE, MASS, April 12, 2005 - DataPower(r), the original creator and
leading provider of intelligent XML-Aware Network (XAN) hardware, today
announced that its Chief Technology Officer Eugene Kuznetsov has been
selected as one of InfoWorld's "Top 25 Most Influential CTOs" for 2005
(See: InfoWorld CTO 25 at http://www.infoworld.com/2701). These elite IT
leaders continuously demonstrate leadership and innovation both inside
and outside of their companies.  Kuznetsov was selected for creating the
visionary approach of XML-aware networking that has enabled today's
fundamental shift of moving application-specific processing out of
software and into efficient, scalable network hardware while seamlessly
integrating these network devices into existing Global 1000 enterprise

Winners of this prestigious award are selected by InfoWorld's top
editors and the members of its CTO Advisory Council. InfoWorld
celebrates the achievements of these CTOs and profiles Kuznetsov, along
with other notable industry leaders including Ravi Arimilli at IBM
((NYSE:IBM); Carl Banzhof at Citadel Security (NasdaqSC:CDSS); Hossein
Eslambolchi, at AT&T (NYSE:T); Jim Lester at Aflac (NYSE:AFL); Robert
Otto at the U.S. Postal Service; Toby Redshaw at Motorola (NYSE:MOT);
Bruce Schneier at Counterpane Internet Security; and Pradeep Sindhu at
Juniper Networks (NasdaqNM:JNPR)  in this week's issue of InfoWorld and
online at www.infoworld.com/2701 

"It is extremely gratifying that InfoWorld recognizes, as we do, the
talent and innovative vision of Eugene Kuznetsov," said Jim Ricotta, CEO
and president at DataPower. "Eugene invented XML-aware networking six
years ago and put forth the notion that you could move XML processing
onto network hardware for unparalleled performance, security and
significantly reduced operational complexity for XML Web service
deployments. Today, he continues to lead DataPower in establishing
industry benchmarks for leadership and innovation. It is Eugene's vision
and DataPower's ability to execute on that vision that has made
DataPower the most widely-deployed XML-aware networking solution."

In 1999, Eugene Kuznetov formulated a vision for the next generation of
intelligent network equipment to secure, rationalize, accelerate and
integrate applications. This vision of XML-aware networks (XANs) is a
key part of the transition from packet-oriented networks to
application-oriented networks, where intelligent network equipment
provides not just connectivity but message-level security, routing,
integration and acceleration. Eugene's vision was built on two beliefs
that have materialized today as reality: first, that XML would become
the dominant protocol for connecting disparate systems, and second, that
only true network devices, rather than heterogeneous software, would be
able to support the security, performance and reduced complexity
required for wide adoption and scalable operation.  To meet the unique
security and performance requirements of powering this new class of
network equipment, Eugene founded DataPower to develop unique patented
XG3(tm) XML processing technology
(www.datapower.com/newsroom/pr_081004_patent.html). XG3(tm) technology
is designed from the ground up to protect against XML security
vulnerabilities and to deliver wirespeed performance without sacrificing
security or flexibility.

More than five years later, Eugene Kuznetsov is not only the original
creator of XML-aware networking, but continues to lead DataPower as
chairman and CTO while DataPower has become the most widely deployed
provider of XML and application-aware network devices.  DataPower
customers worldwide have XML-aware networks that secure, accelerate and
enable application processing at price and performance levels not
possible with software. DataPower's network devices have securely
processed billions of dollars in XML and Web service transactions.   

Members of DataPower's application-aware networking product family

*	the award-winning XA35 XML Accelerator
(www.datapower.com/products/xa35.html ),

The XA35 XML Accelerator offloads resource-intensive XML processing
tasks from application servers and offers comprehensive support for new
versions of standards such as XML, XML Schema (XSD), Web services, XPath
and XSLT. The XS40 is purpose-built by some of the world's top XML and
security experts to secure XML Web Services transactions and designed to
help enterprises overcome the two critical barriers for deploying XML
Web services: security risks and performance bottlenecks. The XS40 is a
true network hardware device that serves as a secure XML Web services
proxy and access policy enforcement point in front of the application
servers.  For more information on DataPower and DataPower's XML-aware
