nuBridges Partners With Government Sales Force to Penetrate Federal, State and Local Government Markets

GSF to Provide Federal Agencies and Departments With Entire Line of nuBridges Secure File Transfer and Data Protection Solutions

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - July 16, 2008) - nuBridges, Inc., the secure eBusiness authority, announced today that it has partnered with Government Sales Force (GSF) to sell its security software and data exchange solutions to the U.S. Federal Government as well as to state and local governments.

"GSF is one of the foremost government sales outsourcing firms representing technology solutions today," said Roy Hogsed, executive vice president of Sales for nuBridges. "They understand the Federal market implicitly and know first-hand the need for more secure managed file transfer solutions, and better solutions for securing data at rest in databases, applications and files. We're fortunate to be working with GSF -- they have the unique ability to get products into the hands of key decision-makers within government, a vital market segment for nuBridges."

GSF is representing the entire nuBridges product line, including nuBridges Protect™ and nuBridges Exchange™. nuBridges Protect is an advanced, integrated encryption, key management and logging solution that protects sensitive data at rest in database fields, files and applications. nuBridges Exchange is a suite of software modules, including Managed File Transfer and B2B Gateway Software, for digital information transfers within and across organizations.

"While most Federal agencies and departments have done a good job of protecting data at rest, the focus is now on protecting data in motion," said Mark Hogan, GSF's founder and CEO. "The nuBridges solutions are very well-received by our customers, who are moving fast to add this additional layer of data protection to comply with specific regulations such as OMB Circular No. A-123, and to implement best practices for data security in general."

This new relationship is part of nuBridges' 2008 sales channel expansion plans, which call for aggressive addition of indirect channels in the United States, United Kingdom, Europe and Latin America. This expansion is in addition to its strong direct sales channel, which is focused primarily on North America and the UK. "The market is ripe for nuBridges secure eBusiness solutions in the B2B and internal file transfer and data protection arenas, so we are aggressively expanding our indirect channels to supplement our direct sales activities," commented Hogsed. "GSF has important customer relationships, and nuBridges can help GSF accelerate secure business integration initiatives that generate tremendous payback very quickly."
