DecisionPoint® Software Selects SignetX™ to Protect Company Intellectual Property

Solution Monitors and Manages Access to Corporate Intellectual Property

DENVER, CO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 26, 2005 -- SignetX, Inc., the leading software-as-a-service provider of information rights management solutions, today announced that DecisionPoint Software is using the SignetX Executive Solution to secure its intellectual property (IP) in the form of electronic documents.

DecisionPoint Software's Business Challenge

DecisionPoint® Software provides financial performance management software that helps companies consistently monitor, analyze and report on the financial results of operational activities across the enterprise. An important component of the company's solution is data models that have been developed and refined over the last 10+ years. These models, covering finance, human resources, manufacturing and distribution, contain best-practice methodologies for providing finance and operational analytics to medium and large enterprises. As part of a standard customer engagement, DecisionPoint's professional services team installs the software and provides deployment assistance onsite for its customers. While it is necessary that DecisionPoint staff, customers and consultants have access to certain portions of DecisionPoint's data model IP, DecisionPoint needed assurance that this sensitive and highly proprietary information is only accessed and used by authorized personnel. DecisionPoint needed an affordable solution that could be implemented quickly. The SignetX Executive Solution, offered as a monthly subscription service, was the answer.

"DecisionPoint Software has been able to greatly benefit from the SignetX solution by securing our proprietary information -- yet still provide controlled access to the documents for specific individuals both inside and outside our organization," said Scott Brown, VP of Products at DecisionPoint Software. "It's the best of both worlds -- our engineers in the field have the information they need, yet we're preventing our 'crown jewels' from getting into the wrong hands outside the organization. The SignetX solution's ability to provide me with a report on who has accessed the information and when gives me the assurance that our corporate assets are being protected."

The SignetX Solution

The SignetX solution allows individuals, departments and entire enterprises to provide persistent protection to sensitive information and intellectual property in the form of electronic files and emails -- easily and affordably. Persistent means documents stay protected throughout their entire lifecycle -- in creation, transit, usage and storage -- regardless of where files reside. SignetX manages the rights licenses on the customer's behalf without ever touching the actual documents. Value-added features include fast web provisioning; an online security center where subscribers can easily manage people, files and rights; event-based online reporting; support for 13 major business file formats; and 24x7 end-user support.

"Customers like DecisionPoint Software are quickly realizing the benefits of the SignetX software-as-a-service model for fast, easy and affordable implementation and management," said Don Poulter, President and CEO, SignetX, Inc. "DecisionPoint is taking proactive measures to maintain control over access and use of valuable company information throughout its lifecycle."
