DSET Selects RSA Security to Help Secure Communications Between Telecommunications Service Providers

RSA BSAFE(R) Crypto-C Software Incorporated Into Electronic-Bonding Gateways

BEDFORD, Mass., July 10 /PRNewswire/ — RSA Security Inc. (Nasdaq: RSAS), the most trusted name in e-security(TM), announced today that DSET Corporation (Nasdaq: DSET), a leading supplier of software known as electronic-bonding gateways that enable competitive service providers in the telecommunications industry to implement an automated Trading Partner Network (TPN), has incorporated RSA BSAFE(R) Crypto-C encryption software into its ezNumberPort system. A TPN plays a critical role in lowering the cost of acquiring customers, reducing the amount of time required to turn on services for new customers, and minimizing the time required to resolve service outages to ensure higher customer satisfaction and less customer turnover. The ezNumberPort gateway enables communications between competitive service providers and the eight regional Number Portability Administration Centers (NPACs) in the United States and Canada. By incorporating RSA BSAFE encryption technology into its gateway, DSET helps enable secure communications between ezNumberPort and the NPAC.

“The DSET ezNumberPort gateway offers telecommunication service providers a very cost-effective and secure alternative for communicating between trading partners,” said Nathan Bond, DSET product manager. “By selecting an RSA Security solution, we can assure our customers that they will not only be able to manage their operations much more efficiently and economically but can feel confident that their transmissions remain secure.”

“Telecommunication leaders rely on DSET to safely and securely transmit data across the automated network,” said Bill McQuaide, vice president of product marketing at RSA Security. “By choosing RSA BSAFE software to address its security needs, DSET has clearly demonstrated its commitment to providing best-of-breed security solutions for its market-leading gateway.”

The RSA BSAFE line of security software is embedded in today’s most successful Internet applications, including Web browsers, wireless devices, e-commerce servers, e-mail systems and virtual private network products. Built to provide implementations of standards such as SSL, SMIME, WTLS, IPSec and PKCS, RSA BSAFE products can save developers time and risk in their development schedules.
