Red Hat Ready Partner Integrates XML Gateway with JBoss Enterprise Middleware to Fuel Enterprise Federated SOA Deployments

BOSTON, May 10, 2010 - Crosscheck Networks, Inc. a leader in services testing, simulation and
security, today announced it has joined Red Hat's Independent Software
Vendors (ISV) Partner Program. As a Red Hat Ready Partner, Crosscheck
Networks, and its wholly owned subsidiary Forum Systems, now support Red
Hat's middleware portfolio, JBoss Enterprise Middleware.

The Red Hat ISV Program provides qualified vendors easy access to the
tools and resources necessary to develop and test their products on Red Hat
technologies. Additionally, through the program's co-marketing and
co-branding offerings, Crosscheck Networks will make its flagship solution,
the Forum Systems Sentry XML Gateway, available to Red Hat customers

Processing more than one billion transactions per day worldwide, Forum
Sentry simplifies business communications through secure integration across
networks and business boundaries. The FIPS- and DoD-certified Sentry XML
Gateway ensures preemptive risk mitigation of business transactions exposed
via SOA by enabling the ability to develop and deploy robust and reliable
SOAP- and XML-based Web services. Empowering more secure, efficient and
seamless information exchange among back-office applications, Web services,
and customer and partner portals - the hallmarks of Federated SOA - Forum
Sentry affords users more control of their Web interactions.

"Crosscheck Networks' new partnership with Red Hat underscores the demand
for, and increasing adoption of, Forum Sentry in the enterprise," said
Daniele de Petris, CTO of Quanam Italia, an Advanced Partner of Red Hat. "The
integration of Crosscheck Networks' products with the JBoss Enterprise SOA
Platform offers our IT customers unprecedented flexibility and scalability
for maximizing the value of their open source software deployments."

"Crosscheck Networks is experiencing strong growth in the EMEA markets,"
said Mamoon Yunus, CEO of Crosscheck Networks. "Achieving interoperability
with JBoss Enterprise Middleware and Red Hat Ready Partner status adds to
that momentum. Additionally, by leveraging systems integrator partners like
Quanam Italia, we'll continue to deliver solutions that help enterprises
establish Federated SOA, and facilitate safe cloud migrations."

Forum Sentry is an integral component of Crosscheck Networks'
comprehensive services "lifecycle" suite. The products can be deployed
together or seamlessly integrated with organizations' existing
infrastructure. In addition to Forum Sentry, the company's enterprise-class
offerings comprise:

    - SOAPSonar - Provides modes for functional, multi-client
      performance, compliance and security testing of SOAP-, XML- and
      REST-based services. SOAPSonar offers enterprises the unique ability to
      test functional and performance characteristics of unlimited-sized Web
      services attachments via streaming of structured and unstructured data
      based on industry standards such as MTOM and MIME. And with support for
      WS-Trust, SAML 2.0 and WS-identity tokens, SOAPSonar ensures a
      best-practices approach to Federated Identity Management.

    - Forum STS - Allows secure, accelerated and consolidated identity
      enforcement, controlling privileges without requiring the custom code
      that can frequently introduce risk. Performing comprehensive mediation,
      authentication, and authorization of identity exchange among customer
      and partner portals, Web applications and XML-based Web services, Forum
      STS provides businesses with a simplified model for identity management
      and the framework for Federated SOA. And through Federated SOA with
      trusted business units and external trading partners, organizations can
      successfully navigate the regulatory and compliance barriers related to
      information security, integrity and privacy, and form a solid
      foundation for their cloud computing initiatives.

    - CloudPort - A first-of-its-kind cloud simulation product that
      enables enterprises to make more informed decisions when selecting a
      provider for, and prioritizing which applications to migrate to, cloud
      computing. Capitalizing on actual metrics of cloud providers and
      enterprise data centers, organizations using CloudPort can more
      confidently align their infrastructure with business requirements for
      enhanced reliability and risk mitigation, and ensure seamless
      enterprise-to-cloud integration. Notably, enterprises benefit by never
      having to touch production code, while eliminating the substantial time,
      capital and IT staff resource expenses related to building a distinct
      cloud test environment
