Universal File System Driver Recognized for Bridging Gap Between Windows and Mac

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - November 19, 2008) - Paragon Software Group today announced that their universal file system driver, NTFS for Mac OS X, has been selected as one of the top emerging technologies at Fresh, A First Look at New Technology, a program designed for vendors with new, emerging technologies that are trying to reach the Solution Provider Channel. The program was part of the XChange Tech Innovator conference, presented by Everything Channel in conjunction with the Sightline Group, which took place at the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose.

The Fresh presentation highlighted the key features of NTFS for Mac OS X in a lively multimedia production with a follow-up opportunity to engage with key attendees in one-on-one discussions. Paragon's solution was presented in a unique stage format to all technology decision-making attendees, interviewed by Ray Robidoux and Fred Brown, partners of the Sightline Group.

Designed to eliminate the barrier between Windows and Mac, NTFS for Mac provides Mac OS X users with full read and write access to Microsoft NTFS partitions. This allows users to modify existing files, delete, create and copy new files from Mac to Windows, without the need for expensive translation software or servers.

"We are honored to be recognized by Everything Channel and the Sightline Group," said Tom Fedro, president of Paragon Software Group - Americas. "The excitement generated by our NTFS for Mac, universal file system driver has been unprecedented.
