Tizor Expands Distribution Channel in Response to Demand for Enterprise Data Auditing and Protection

New Partners Selected for Their Ability to Provide Expertise and Services to Complement Mantra Data Security and Compliance Solutions

MAYNARD, MA--(Marketwire - February 26, 2008) - Tizor Systems, the leading provider of enterprise data auditing and protection solutions for the data center, today announced multiple new additions to its PartnerTrust Program. This expansion underscores the need for enterprises to discover and protect critical data assets and comply with the monitoring, auditing and reporting requirements of regulations such as SOX, PCI and GLBA.

Tizor's new resellers include: Affinity Enterprises, Business Partner Solutions (BPS), ECompliantz, Enforce Technology, Extensys, NexInfo and Planit Technology Group. These partners were selected by Tizor based on their technical expertise and service delivery capabilities. They provide Tizor with geographic coverage in North America and EMEA in addition to vertical expertise in areas including financial services, retail, state and local government, healthcare, and legal, among others. Each new addition to the PartnerTrust program complements Tizor's current partner base and helps support Tizor's growing customer base.

"Extensys recognizes the business and operational value that Tizor Systems brings to the business enterprise, and believes Tizor Systems to be an essential building block in securing, monitoring, and reporting on the use of sensitive data," said Jason Barber, solution development manager of Extensys. "Tizor fits nicely into our security solution portfolio bridging our technology practices together and adding to our total value proposition as an end-to-end IT solution provider."

"We review more than 40 new technologies each year looking for solutions that have significant business impact, deliver what is promised and are backed by a professional customer service-focused team," said Katherine Bluma, president of BPS. "We believe that Tizor fits that bill."

Each reseller receives extensive training on Tizor's Mantra data auditing and protection solution, the only solution capable of monitoring activity across databases, file servers and mainframe applications. Technical partners are required to complete a certification program that includes installation, integration, configuration and proof of concept training.

"We are being very selective when it comes to bringing partners into the PartnerTrust Program," explained Douglas Mazlish, Tizor vice president of channel and business development. "Besides looking for partners that have the right customer service philosophy, market focus and technical expertise, our goal is to balance geographic areas with the right mix of local, national and global coverage. We look for partners who understand the data security eco-system and can act as trusted advisors to our joint customers."

Tizor's current partners include organizations such as: Integralis, providing an international presence across a wide range of industries, and NTirety, a trusted provider of database outsourcing services.
