Ingate® Systems Named to the 2005 "pulver 100"

Increasing Demand for NAT/Firewall Traversal SIP Technology Helps to Secure Ranking on pulver 100

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 9, 2005 -- Ingate® Systems (www.ingate.com), which develops firewall technology and products that enable SIP-based live communication for the enterprise while maintaining control and security at the network edge, today announced that it has been named to the 2005 "pulver 100," the VoIP industry's premier listing of privately held growth companies that represent the future of the communications ecosystem. Ingate has been named to the list due to its Network Address Translation (NAT)/firewall traversal technology and unique products that SIP-enable enterprises, allowing for the use of VoIP, IM and a wide range of IP communications.

This is the fourth time Ingate has been honored with the pulver 100 Award.

Ingate products solve the NAT traversal issues inherent in SIP communications. Since NAT hides private IP addresses from the public Internet, Ingate's products enable seamless secure connectivity by matching SIP communications originating from outside a company with the appropriate internal IP address.

In addition to resolving near-end NAT traversal issues, Ingate offers Remote SIP Connectivity, a far-end NAT traversal solution that extends the SIP capabilities of a corporate network to remote workers. Remote SIP Connectivity significantly enhances the mobility of employees by enabling the use of corporate IP telephony applications, instant messaging and other communication services from most any location outside the local area network (LAN).

Ingate's VoIP Survival application module offers full redundancy in a SIP-based hosted PBX environment and ensures continued communications service even if the host server goes offline. This increased availability minimizes unnecessary downtime. All modules work with Ingate Firewall® and Ingate SIParator® products, which provide an elegant and cost-effective solution for SIP-enabling an enterprise.

"Companies such as Ingate Systems work steadily to develop innovative products that help businesses reap the benefits of IP communications," said Jeff Pulver, Founder and Chairman of pulvermedia. "We are proud to once again name Ingate to the pulver 100."

"Ingate is delighted to again be a part of the pulver 100 list," said Olle Westerberg, Chief Executive Officer, Ingate Systems. "Ingate is leading the industry in developing NAT traversal solutions and SIP-enabling technologies for the enterprise. We are honored to have this leadership acknowledged by such a prestigious award as the pulver 100."

About the pulver 100:

Originally introduced in 2002, the pulver 100 features private companies in the communications sector that have substantial real-world deployments and enjoy significant growth rates. The value chain characterized by pulver 100 differs from the vertically integrated telecom model of the last century, focusing more on a networking-industry model that espouses open interfaces, connectivity decoupled from services, and software decoupled from hardware.
