Defywire Announces Three New Client Schools

Growing Company Expands in New Markets

HERNDON, VA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 10, 2006 -- Defywire announced today that Dinwiddie County Public Schools, Spackenkill Union Free School District and Xaverian High School will use Defywire's Mobile Guardian to provide secure, real-time student information to school administrators with wireless-enabled Smartphones and PDAs.

Defywire's one-of-a-kind Mobile Guardian solution delivers secure, wireless data to school administrators, faculty, and security personnel wherever and whenever they need it -- whether monitoring the halls or managing a school-wide evacuation. In an instant, school personnel can access emergency and attendance information, class schedules, grades, and other critical student information -- and also record incidents, reports and information changes in real-time from the field.

--  Dinwiddie County Public Schools in Dinwiddie, Virginia, will be using
    Defywire's Mobile Guardian on Smartphones and PDAs to better monitor
    students and visitors in each school.  Whether students are on the
    playground or on a field trip, administrators will know where students are
    at all times by using Mobile Guardian Attendance and Group Locator.
    Dinwiddie will also be using Mobile Guardian Visitor Log to track all
    visitors in the school at any given time.
    
--  Spackenkill Union Free School District in Poughkeepsie, New York, will
    be using Mobile Guardian on Palm® Treo Smartphones for administrators to
    have access to all student information, attendance and schedules for all
    schools in the district in real-time to increase accessibility in the event
    of an incident on school grounds.
    
--  Xaverian High School in Brooklyn, New York, will be using Mobile
    Guardian to access all student information including attendance, schedules
    and group locator to decrease the number of incidents of students skipping
    class with wireless-enabled Smartphones and PDAs.
    
"We are very excited about our three customers," said Jill Stelfox, CEO of Defywire, Inc. "We are experiencing a period of expanding growth as more schools realize the increased value Mobile Guardian provides them to further utilize their existing student information systems and capitalize on their investments in technology."
