Axentra Corporation Chooses Paragon Software for Cross Platform Technology

Axentra's HipServ® Platform Now Features Paragon UFSD Technology for Full High Performance Access to Windows and Mac Formatted Hard Drives

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - December 14, 2010) - Paragon Software Group (PSG) has been chosen by Axentra Corporation, a leader in the digital home server market, to provide its Universal File System Drive (UFSD) cross platform technology. A noted leader in innovative data security and data management solutions, Paragon will provide technology solutions to embed in Axentra software for digital media servers in the connected digital home.

The first Axentra product to include Paragon's technology is the award-winning HipServ® digital home server software and services platform. Axentra's HipServ® software is a highly secure home server platform that can be used to store, manage, share, and enjoy digital media from a PC, from mobile phones such as Apple iPhone, Google Android and RIM BlackBerry, from gaming consoles like Microsoft Xbox 360 and Sony PS3, or from other UPnP or DLNA compatible devices such as picture frames, Digital Media Adapters, networked music players and many more. And now with Paragon NTFS for Linux and HFS+ for Linux, users will be able to attach their Windows and/or Mac-formatted drives to their central home media server, then flawlessly play back their contents. Best of all, Paragon's technology will allow any device no matter what OS they are running to securely access and share files to/from the attached drive.

Paragon's NTFS for Linux and HFS+ for Linux are based on the company's advanced Universal File System Driver (UFSD) technology, which was specially developed to provide full access (read/write, format, etc.) to volumes of the most popular file systems (NTFS, HFS+, Ext2/3/4FS, etc.) under various kernels and operating systems (Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, VxWorks, etc.) where these file systems otherwise would not be supported. Along with cross-platform compatibility, Paragon's UFSD technology is well known for having the highest read/write performance in the market -- a key differentiator which is absolutely critical for storing and playing high definition, Blu-ray quality video content on network and multimedia devices.

"We are continuously seeking new innovations that will enhance our customer's experience with our products," said Eric Lefebvre, EVP of Corporate and Business Development, Axentra Corporation. "Paragon was a natural fit for us because of their unique UFSD technology for cross-platform compatibility coupled with the best read/write performance available -- a critical component for a home media server where multiple users can simultaneously access to download, playback, and share content. We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with Paragon."

"Axentra is a pioneer in the connected home market," said Tom Fedro, president, Paragon Software Group. "Our technology combined with Axentra's products will not only benefit consumers and service providers, but will also power OEM-branded consumer smart appliances, from storage to residential gateways, routers and set top boxes. We are very pleased to participate in Axentra's vision to deliver a unified digital lifestyle experience to consumers."
