Liquid Machines and Zelinger Associates, Inc. Partner to Deliver Enterprise Rights Management Solutions to the Federal Government

Partnership Offers U.S. Government Agencies Leading ERM Solution for Information Security and Compliance; Expands Liquid Machines Government Sales Capability

WALTHAM, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 23, 2005 -- Liquid Machines®, Inc., the leading provider of Enterprise Rights Management (ERM) solutions, and Zelinger Associates, Inc., dedicated to federal business development for information technology innovators, today announced that they have joined forces to deliver Liquid Machines Enterprise Rights Management solutions to the U.S. Government.

Information that passes through government agencies, ranging from national defense intelligence to an individual citizen's Medicare benefits, is sensitive in nature and must be protected from inappropriate disclosure or malicious use. Using Liquid Machines Enterprise Rights Management software, government agencies can establish persistent control over the access to and usage of critical data regardless of where it exists without changing the way employees work. Traditional perimeter and point-to-point security solutions may be limited to protecting data while in transit, while Enterprise Rights Management persistently protects the information in transit and at rest. Liquid Machines solutions help ensure that information is used according to agency policies and information security regulations, reducing the risk of violations and threat to national intelligence information.

Zelinger Associates, based in Fairfax, Virginia, provides a range of consulting, marketing, sales, and business-development expertise that matches commercial IT companies to federal government needs. Zelinger has worked with a variety of software and hardware manufacturers and systems integrators to target federal and state government IT opportunities. Zelinger Associates, Inc. will act as Liquid Machines' sales and marketing agent to the U.S. Government for Liquid Machines Enterprise Rights Management solutions.

"Liquid Machines provides email and document management security solutions that the government must have in order to protect its Intellectual Property," said Mark Zelinger, president and founder, Zelinger Associates, Inc. "Liquid Machines puts the Enterprise in control of how information is shared without disrupting the collaborative process. Liquid Machines' solutions support and extend both the Microsoft Rights Management Service and the Blackberry platform."

"Our partnership with Zelinger Associates is a significant milestone for Liquid Machines," said David M. Allen, vice president of channels and alliances at Liquid Machines, Inc. "The U.S. Government and its agencies deal with some of the world's most critical and sensitive information, and protecting that information is of the highest importance. Zelinger Associates is a trusted service provider to the U.S. Government and we are excited to be partnered with them to deliver our Enterprise Rights Management solutions to the government marketplace."
