FrontBridge Further Extends Global Reach; Adds Multilingual End User Interfaces for Managed Email Services

Native Language Capabilities Address Customer Requirements in More than 100 Countries Worldwide

15 February, 2005 - FrontBridge Technologies Inc., the leader in Total Message Management, today announced significantly expanded international capabilities with the addition of multilingual end user interfaces for its award-winning managed services. FrontBridge has translated all end user interfaces, including email notifications and quarantine notices, into the following languages - German, French and Canadian French, Italian, Spanish and Japanese. The company will further its international support efforts in the upcoming months, adding more native language support, for its global customers.

Equant (NYSE: ENT), one of the largest global carriers, transmits billions of email messages for the world's largest multinational corporations. The company is a FrontBridge strategic partner that private labels FrontBridge's managed email services, bringing them to market as the Equant Messaging Protection Suite. Equant's multinational customers are among the first to benefit from native language support for its services.

"FrontBridge applies a global view to its operational efforts and has enabled us to reach out to an even broader set of potential customers," said Mark Wigington, head of IT services at Equant. "Our multinational customers want all end user interfaces to be in their native language and this feature further differentiates FrontBridge as a strategic partner."

In addition, FrontBridge celebrates another milestone this month with an unmatched fourth consecutive year of 100 per cent system availability. The FrontBridge network now processes more than 5 billion messages a month. It is the only load-balanced data centre network to provide access to all of its network resources to all customers, ensuring reliability and availability with strict service level agreements.

"FrontBridge is quickly becoming the global leader in managed messaging services," said Dan Nadir, vice president of product management for FrontBridge Technologies. "We continue to enhance our network infrastructure capabilities to support a global community, while at the same time bolstering our Total Message Management product portfolio to handle the broadest set of messaging needs."
