Identity Systems Signs Reseller Agreement With Systems Integrator Solvento to Expand Presence in the Philippines

OLD GREENWICH, CT and SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwire - September 25, 2007) - Identity Systems, a wholly owned subsidiary of Nokia (NYSE: NOK) and a worldwide leader in identity searching and matching technology, today announced the signing of a value-added reseller agreement with Solvento Philippines Inc., a company specializing in business intelligence and data integration services, in order to expand Identity Systems' presence in the Philippines.

Through the agreement, Solvento will resell and provide support for the full suite of data matching solutions from Identity Systems in the Philippines, including its hallmark technology, the Identity Search Server™ (ISS). Identity Systems is working on similar agreements that would further expand its reach into the Asian market.

"Identity searching and matching is one of the biggest challenges for data integration projects that we and many of our customers are experiencing," said Anna Marie See, managing director of Solvento Philippines. "Adding Identity Systems' products, solutions and expertise in searching, finding, matching, screening and grouping identity data from over 65 different languages and dialects will greatly enhance our current portfolio. It will also help us to continue to provide a complete customer data integration solution for both public and private sector organizations."

"We are confident that Solvento Philippines's product sales expertise, strong technical support infrastructure and market penetration in the banking and public sector will greatly enhance our growth opportunities," said Michael Dunkerley, sales director of the Asia Pacific region for Identity Systems. "By integrating our highly accurate and proven software for computer systems and network databases with Solvento's support and local presence, Identity Systems and Solvento will be at the forefront of this evolving market space."

ISS is the complete solution for identity searching, screening, matching and duplicate discovery across an organization. ISS provides high-quality searching, matching, duplicate discovery and relationship linking for all forms of identification data, without requiring programming or changes to existing database tables. Without impacting database update efficiency, ISS transparently maintains its own high-performance "fuzzy" indexes and efficiently de-normalized tables.
