3n and SDI Intelligent Solutions Announce the Integration of 3n Instacom and SDI's Continuity NOW! Solution; Create the First Fully Automated Business Continuity Package

Two Leading Business Continuity Solution Providers Join Forces to Deliver Complete Crisis and Incident Management Capabilities to the Market

GLENDALE, CA and SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ--(Marketwire - March 17, 2008) - 3n (National Notification Network), the leading global mass notification system provider, and SDI Intelligent Solutions today announced the compatibility of the 3n InstaCom System with SDI's Continuity NOW! solution. The combined solution will help satisfy the growing market demand for an integrated end-to-end solution to solve large portions of the business continuity challenge, from analysis and planning to automated plan execution and communication in a real world setting.

SDI's Continuity NOW! is a highly collaborative Command and Control platform that links existing systems and devices used for situational awareness with technologies used for rapid communication and response. Continuity NOW! provides a holistic 360 degree view of all emergency response services while automating incident and event preparedness and response procedures.

The 3n InstaCom system, the most reliable and effective mass notification system available today, can notify a large or small group of individuals on any contact device in response to an SDI trigger activation. The 3n system delivers real-time 2 way communication so that the organization can make educated, timely decisions about the status of an event and respond quickly. The combination of these two technologies allows organizations of any shape and size to conduct pre-event contingency planning, detect events when they occur and, automatically deliver critical information to key individuals, at any time, and wherever they are located on the planet.

"Integrating the 3n system with similarly focused business continuity solutions such as SDI's Continuity NOW! is a compelling way to extend their reach, flexibility and effectiveness. The 3n system is a global communication tool that can enable rapid mobilization of resources on a scale never before possible," said Cinta Putra, CEO of 3n. "We are proud to partner with organizations such as SDI in order to give customers more choices to meet their business continuity needs."

"Horizontally fusing existing systems, devices, and applications together in an automated fashion is what places SDI's Continuity NOW! noticeably at the forefront of Business Continuity Planning, Risk Mitigation, and Emergency Response. We are pleased that our automated solution coupled with 3n's powerful mass notification system will provide agencies, organizations, and individuals the ability to automate communication and operations in order to monitor and quickly respond to emergency situations," says Barbara Clements, President and CEO of SDI. "By coupling Continuity NOW! 's platform with 3n, disparate entities will now have real-time multi-modal access to situational awareness information, enhancing the ability to collaborate and respond accordingly."

Additionally, the 3n InstaCom system can be used as a stand-alone application for emergency notification or business process automation. 3n InstaCom enables one person -- with a single phone call or through the internet -- to communicate with tens, hundreds, or thousands of people anywhere in the world in minutes on any preferred device, such as phone, email, instant messaging, text messaging, fax, BlackBerry®, PDA and pager. The 3n InstaCom system leverages the most technologically sophisticated platform available with 3n's unique ACT-SaaS(SM) service (Software-as-a-Service delivery model with multiple data centers in active-active configuration) to provide the highest level of reliability, availability and delivery speeds for urgent communications.
