nuBridges and comForte Enter Strategic Partnership to Provide HP NonStop Users With Data Security Solution

HP NonStop Opens New Market Opportunity for nuBridges

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - January 7, 2008) - nuBridges, the Secure eBusiness authority, announced today that it has entered into a strategic partnership agreement with HP NonStop solutions expert comForte to market nuBridges Data Secure solution to HP NonStop users worldwide. nuBridges Data Secure is a complete encryption, key management and audit logging solution that is used to meet a wide variety of regulatory and best practice security mandates, including compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

Under the terms of the agreement, comForte has ported nuBridges Data Secure to the HP NonStop server platform, and both companies will market the new version worldwide. The solution is already in production on the HP NonStop platform at one major publicly held retailer, protecting credit card data in compliance with PCI DSS requirements.

"Many of our customers are looking for a fool-proof way to protect consumer credit card information and comply with the PCI DSS mandate in a cross-platform environment," said Dieter Orlowski, vice president of sales and marketing at comForte. "After careful evaluation, we came to the conclusion that nuBridges Data Secure provides an excellent all-around data security solution for PCI compliance as well as the wide breadth of multi-platform support our enterprise customers require."

"We're pleased that comForte chose nuBridges Data Secure to provide an encryption and centralized key management software solution to their customers who must comply with the payment card industry mandate," said Kim Addington, nuBridges Chief Marketing Officer. "With more than 500 customers, comForte is one of the leading software vendors for the HP NonStop market, with a multitude of high-quality products and platform expertise. This partnership opens a new market for nuBridges data security solutions in large corporations that depend on HP NonStop servers."

In addition to PCI DSS compliance, nuBridges Data Secure is used to protect any type of sensitive data at rest in databases, files and applications such as social security numbers, healthcare information, birthdates, mother's maiden name, credit records and other data that should be encrypted.

"Encrypting data at rest is one of the best ways to protect against breaches that threaten brand equity," said Addington. "We expect that HP NonStop users will use nuBridges Data Secure not only for PCI DSS compliance, but also for protecting many other types of sensitive corporate and customer data."
