Citadel Group and Trustcorps Offer London-Based Financial Institutions Protection against Hack Attacks

London - 28 May 2003 - Trustcorps, the specialist provider of Host IPS (Intrusion Prevention Systems) security software, today announced the signing of a reseller agreement with Citadel Group.

Citadel Group is a provider of Information Technology solutions within the Capital Markets arena. Based in the City of London, Citadel specialises in the integration and creation of systems infrastructure capable of delivering mission critical applications for financial services using screen based trading systems.

The agreement signed today will allow Citadel to offer its customer base the highest degree of server security through Trustcorps' TRUSHIELD(tm) product, which provides generic class protection against known and unknown hack attacks, worms and viruses. Citadel aims to add value to its clients, most of who operate on Sun Solaris servers, by introducing them to a proven security product that is very cost-effective, reliable and easy to implement.

Julian Curtis, Managing Director at Citadel Group comments, "We firmly believe that TRUSHIELD(tm) is a unique product and that by avoiding the usual reliance on signature based rules it delivers the highest standard of generic class protection available in the market today. We are convinced that any institution with Sun Solaris Servers should be using TRUSHIELD as its Intrusion Prevention System."

Nick Ray, CEO and Co-founder of Trustcorps added: "We are thrilled at the prospect of working with Citadel to offer London's financial services institutions a real solution in the e-warfare arms race."
