FAIRFIELD, N.J. & TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–May 3, 2001–JAWZ Inc. (Nasdaq:JAWZ), a leading provider of secure information management solutions, and Emagebox.com today announced a strategic partnership for the development of secure interactive solutions.

JAWZ Inc. and Emagebox.com Inc. are working together to explore “Digital Media Distribution System” a secure method for delivering advertising and entertainment industry products and content over the Internet. This solution will also ensure the privacy and confidentiality of information being transmitted.

The potential of this relationship is to build and jointly market a secure, encrypted delivery mechanism that will support a variety of user authentication capabilities, including digital signatures and biometric identification systems.

“We’re pleased to be working in partnership with Emagebox.com on secure applications for industries as dynamic as Advertising and Entertainment,” said Robert Kubbernus, Chairman and CEO, JAWZ Inc. “These industries have huge growth potential in securing their B2B and B2C digital applications.”

The Digital Media Distribution System is a digital catalogue system that cost-effectively delivers digital media, such as audio and video, to location specific businesses and consumers. For businesses, it brings interactive digital retailing to numerous industries faced with high inventory costs, changing consumer tastes, and shrinking shelf space by merging traditional in-store/out-of-store video marketing with new broadband and encryption technologies.

This innovative Linux component-based system is a digital warehouse and distribution network that integrates advanced encryption technology into industries faced with high-cost distribution models.

“We believe that the top-notch security skills at JAWZ are critical to the launch of this new service,” said Marius Petrescu, President and CEO of Emagebox.com Inc.
