Berlin (euro adhoc) - Berlin/New York - November 3, 2008 - Beta
Systems Software AG and Proginet Corporation today announced an
agreement whereby the companies have streamlined their security
product portfolios while strengthening their respective core
competencies in identity management and secure file transfer. Under
the terms of the agreement, Proginet has transferred all intellectual
property rights to its SecurPass product to Beta Systems, and has
licensed to Beta Systems the intellectual property rights to its
SecurAccess and SecurForce security products. Proginet is also
transferring to Beta Systems various customer, maintenance, and
service contracts associated with these products. Beta Systems, in
turn, has transferred to Proginet all of the intellectual property
rights to its Harbor NSM and Harbor HFT file transfer products, and
is transferring various associated customer, maintenance, and service
contracts. In addition, Beta Systems has become the exclusive
distributor for Proginet´s complete file transfer portfolio in
Europe. This includes the transferred Harbor NSM and Harbor HFT file
transfer products.

The SecurPass and SecurAccess products offer comprehensive password
synchronization and self-service management features that help
companies manage their security processes in a highly efficient
manner. SecurForce facilitates host-based Web authentication and user
rights assignment. The Harbor NSM and Harbor HFT products offer
multi-platform network storage management and file transfer
capabilities that enable organizations to optimize their IT
operations with high speed, fiber channel communications.

"This strategic product exchange expands Beta Systems´ identity
management business by complementing our existing SAM Jupiter product
suite," said Kamyar Niroumand, CEO of Beta Systems Software AG. "Beta
Systems receives many benefits as a result of this deal. Not only
have we added strong products to our identity management offering, we
have also increased our customer base in North America by more than a
hundred customers. This greatly expands the customer potential for
our entire portfolio."

"This is a very strategic technology exchange and it´s a great deal
for both companies," commented Sandy Weil, Proginet´s President and
CEO. "It enables two major players in their respective industries to
strengthen their security solution offerings while bringing greater
focus to their core lines of business. The benefits to Proginet are
clear," he added. "First, it enables us to more fully focus on secure
file transfer, which is our core competency and where we have the
strongest competitive hand. Second, the Harbor products allow us to
round out our high-end secure file transfer portfolio by adding fiber
channel, ultra high speed communications to the CFI Suite. We´ve
already established a leadership position in secure global file
delivery; this extends our value proposition to deep inside the data
center where lightning-fast backup and restores become critical for
an organization."

Secure file transfer and storage customers in Europe will be
supported by Beta Systems while Proginet will support secure file
transfer and storage customers in North America and other global
