nuBridges Exchange™ Solutions Earn Drummond Certified Seal

nuBridges Exchange C.S. 3.4 and nuBridges Exchange i 3.2 Complete AS1-2Q08 Interoperability Certification

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - July 1, 2008) - nuBridges, the secure eBusiness authority, announced today that its nuBridges Exchange™ C.S. 3.4 and nuBridges Exchange i™ 3.2 software solutions for B2B integration have completed the AS1-2Q08 Interoperability certification and are now Drummond Certified®.

The nuBridges products are two of five newly certified AS1 products from three software companies to complete the Drummond Certified AS1-2Q08 Interoperability Test developed by Drummond Group, Inc. (DGI), the global leader in eBusiness and eGovernment software testing and certification. When implemented, AS1 enables users to securely and reliably connect, deliver data and reply over Simple Mail Transport Protocol (SMTP) or email.

"Having our B2B integration products Drummond Certified is especially important to our customers who are seeking the highest assurances of security and interoperability," said Kim Addington, Chief Marketing Officer for nuBridges. "We've recently re-branded the former iSoft Commerce Suite and Trailblazer midrange products into modules that fit under our nuBridges Exchange suite of B2B integration solutions. These products have been Drummond Certified for a long time, and we're pleased that the new versions have once again passed this important test."

During the test, the participating products are required to exchange test messages with each other and to verify the validity of each transaction. The test messages cover the full scope of the AS1 standard, which includes digital signatures, encryption and receipts, as well as data compression.

"Drummond Group commends nuBridges for its hard work and effort in passing this software interoperability certification," says Rik Drummond, CEO, Drummond Group Inc. "nuBridges has certified its products for many consecutive years now and its effort has engendered a community of AS1 interoperability which benefits themselves and their users."
