Aria Systems to Offer Clients Access to Clareity Security Solution for Enhanced Authentication and Transaction Verification

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - September 11, 2008) - Aria Systems, the industry standard and leading provider of on-demand billing and customer lifecycle management solutions, and Clareity Security, a provider of innovative user authentication and transaction verification solutions, today announced a partnership in which Aria Systems will offer Clareity Security's patented TEXT-pass+® solution to its SaaS billing prospects and clients.

Clareity Security's TEXT-pass+ delivers one-of-a-kind two-factor / two-channel functionality directly to an end user's cell phone using the SMS channel.

The agreement between Aria Systems and Clareity Security enables Aria System's sales force to promote TEXT-pass+ and to refer customers to Clareity Security.

"Working with our partner Clareity, through their TEXT-pass+ product, we are offering our customers yet another layer of fraud, theft, and security protection. Using TEXT-pass+, Aria customers virtually eliminate the looming issue of subscriber fraud and theft, as TEXT-pass+ assures only legitimate accountholders can access valuable subscriber content," says Alleen Sangiuliano, Director of Business Development for Aria Systems. "In addition to what we offer in Aria's core solution set, TEXT-pass+ is a truly effective and useful solution to the problem of online account hijacking and unauthorized sharing. We are excited about working with Clareity Security to make this solution available to our customers."

"Our partnership with Aria Systems, in which they offer the TEXT-pass+ solution, creates a unique opportunity to prove tremendous value to the SaaS world," said Gregg Larson, Chief Executive Officer for Clareity Security.
