Fortified Holdings Enters Middle East Marketplace and Exhibits at Major Defense Show

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - February 21, 2008) - Fortified Holdings Corp. (OTCBB: FFDH) ("Fortified" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that its business unit, Fortified DataCom, will be exhibiting at the International Security & National Resilience ("ISNR") Trade Show and Conference in Abu Dhabi March 2 - 5, 2008 (

ISNR 2008 Abu Dhabi will be the Middle East's first event focused exclusively on homeland security. The event will occupy four halls at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Centre and is held under the patronage of HH General Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces. The event is organized by Reed Exhibitions in association with the UAE Ministry of Interior and incorporates the former Security and Safety Middle East, InfoSecurity Middle East and APTS Middle East trade shows into one. Consolidation of these exhibitions ensures that ISNR is a key forum in the security events calendar.

Fortified DataCom has been invited to present at the show in collaboration with International Golden Group ("IGG"), a multi-faceted company firmly established in the UAE. IGG is the local partner of several multinationals dealing mainly with regional government contracts and provides sophisticated technology that keeps its clients such as the UAE Defense Forces at a technological par with the best armed forces in the world. Since 2002, IGG's success has been reflected by the fact that it has consistently achieved preferred supplier status with major governmental accounts.

Fortified DataCom will be represented at the show by both Brendan Reilly, CEO of Fortified, along with Jim Elliott representing the international sales arm of the Company. They will be providing in-depth information and demonstrations of the Company's advanced information management and mobile communications solutions, featuring the NOMAD C4XS portable command center, Tactical Access Point systems, VantagePoint situational awareness software, and NOMAD FlashCam products.

Fortified's Jim Elliott comments, "We are extremely pleased with how quickly the relationship with IGG is growing. We are already working together towards qualifying three potential opportunities targeting the Special Operations Command ("SOC") and Royal Guard within the UAE, as well as the Royal Guard of nearby Qatar. IGG has further indicated that they are working towards introductions with various Saudi Arabian Military Agencies including the Saudi Ministry of the Interior. Should time permit, we hope to travel to Riyadh for additional demonstrations."

With this key step into the Middle East, the Company continues to position itself as the leader in ruggedized mobile command control and communications network solutions. The company will be exhibiting at ISNR 2008 Abu Dhabi in booths 820 & 830.
