Major Customer Wins Demonstrate Security of Protus Virtual Fax
Latest release of Internet-based fax service provides unique security enhancements.

Ottawa, March 16, 2005 - Protus IP Solutions today announced that privacy firm, Nymity Inc. and mortgage brokerage, Mortgage Intelligence Inc. have selected the company's Internet-based Fax solution to meet their needs for highly secure, efficient fax communications.

Virtual Fax is an Internet-based fax solution that enables businesses to send and receive faxes using existing email accounts or the Web. Unlike traditional faxing, Virtual Fax is convenient, cost effective, integrated, automated and secure.

Protus recently launched Virtual Fax release 4.2, which further enhances security by optionally eliminating fax delivery via email. Customers now have the option of being notified by e-mail of incoming faxes without including the faxes in the message. Users can now choose to link to a secure Web page to retrieve their fax with a password.

Toronto-based Nymity provides Canadian businesses with privacy knowledge and resources through monthly training and subscription services, making the company's own data security and integrity of paramount concern.

"Protus Virtual Fax provides Nymity with the safeguards we require for our faxed-based ordering system," says Terry McQuay, president, Nymity. "Virtual Fax allows our customers to disclose private financial information to us via fax with the assurance that their personal information is forwarded to our order processing department securely."

For companies like Mortgage Intelligence, traditional shared fax machines can pose privacy and security threats because paper faxes can sit idle waiting to be retrieved. Virtual Fax sends incoming faxes directly to intended recipients in a standard format that can be read from their personal computers, through a secure Web page, ensuring confidentiality.

"Our Independent Mortgage Consultants (IC) conduct countless fax transactions per day," says Alice Chan, vice-president Projects and Service Delivery, Mortgage Intelligence. "Not only does Protus Virtual Fax ensure our ICs can instantly and securely access confidential customer information at any location using their mobile computers, they can also store the faxes online for easy access and document management or redirect important faxes to lenders via the outbound fax service on the secure Web page."

The release of Virtual Fax 4.2 is the latest in a series of privacy-related enhancements Protus has added to its Internet-based Fax services as part of its commitment to meet its customers' strict security needs. Virtual Fax 4.2 tracks all incoming and outgoing faxes to simplify tracking for regulatory compliance.

Joseph Nour, CEO, Protus says: "Protus continues to push the evolution of fax communications for our customers. We continually develop our security technology to ensure that our customers can communicate confidentially and securely, complying with privacy regulations like PIPEDA, Gramm-Leach Bliley and Sarbanes-Oxley."
