MECHANICSBURG, PENNSYLVANIA--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 31, 2005) -

Extends Presence in the Identity and Access Management Market

Versatile Mobile Systems (Canada) Inc. (TSX VENTURE:VMS) ("Versatile") today announced that it has become a select partner of Computer Associates International, Inc. ("CA") to help further address customers' needs in identity and access management ("IAM"). The combination of CA's industry leading IAM technologies and Versatile's expertise will allow Versatile to deliver the most comprehensive solution, which will provide the security needed to deliver on the vision of the securely managed enterprise. Versatile joins a select group of partners that have been certified as CA Enterprise Solution Providers.

Identity and Access Management is an impactful and far reaching security administrative area that deals with managing individuals in a system and controlling their access to resources within that system by associating user rights and restrictions with the established identity. Properly identifying individuals and keeping systems and application users up-to-date is critical to successfully implementing secure electronic commerce transactions and Homeland Defense initiatives.

"Versatile's reputation in the enterprise marketplace is impressive. I am convinced the strengths of their team combined with the product quality and market leadership of CA will be a powerful force in the delivery of Identity and Access Management solutions," said Adam Elster, Regional Vice President of Sales, CA.

Versatile has been an industry leader in the deployment of enterprise and carrier class directory services. Technologies such as Active Directory, LDAP and X.500 form the core of a successful identity management solution. Versatile has been implementing solutions based on these technologies for Fortune 1000 and Service Provider clients for many years.

"Today's businesses must deliver services via the Internet to stay competitive in a global economy while maintaining a security model that stands up to both regulatory compliance and an increasingly hostile environment. Versatile and CA have had a long history of success providing the secure base on which these services can be delivered," said Bob Joyce, President, Versatile.

Versatile expects that becoming a CA partner will help drive new revenue streams in excess of U.S. $2 Million in products and services over the next fiscal year.
