Identity and Security Patent Secured by MDM Group

Patent Controls Internet and Network Identifier or Access Codes of 25 or More Bytes or Characters

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 29, 2005 -- MDM Group, Inc. (OTC: MDDM) advises that a legal challenge to the company's rights to and ownership of an important patent in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York has been resolved in the Company's favor. The time for appeal has passed and the determination is now final. As a result of this final determination, the Company intends to commence its efforts to commercialize the patent.

Company President Peter Boonen stated: "The Court ruling in our favor ends a very frustrating time during which we could not use or deal in our own patent for around four years. We now look forward to being able to move forward and employ our technology to enable financial transactions and other communications to be better secured and to introduce applications that will address the many serious mounting Internet and network based threats such as identity theft, fraud and data security."

The Patent was issued in 1998 when the Internet, finance and banking industries in particular were of the view that 16 character codes were sufficient to protect electronic identities and transactions.

The Company's Patent:

--  protects the use of unique identification and/or authentication codes
    of 25 or more bytes or characters on any computer network.
--  protects the use of these unique identifiers on programmable fixed and
    portable electronic and computer media.

Over the next quarter the Company intends to begin actively investigating the current use of long (25 plus) character identifying and authentication codes and to seek to establish commercial arrangements with parties that are using, or intending to use, such keys.
