HushMail Professional™ for Outlook 2000 combines the transparent PKI outsourcing of Hush with the ubiquity of Outlook 2000 for total desktop security

Dublin, Ireland – 12 November , 2001 – Hush Communications (www.hush.com), a global leader in managed security solutions and encryption key serving technology, today announced worldwide availability of its first e-security solution for the Microsoft OutlookTM 2000 email system. The plug-in is available as a free download for trial from the Hush corporate Web site.

Customers around the world can now easily architect a secure infrastructure in a Windows 2000 environment using Hush's transparent key management to encrypt, decrypt, sign and verify incoming and outgoing mails using keys retrieved from the Hush Key Server Network All the user needs to know is that they can send mail and that it goes out securely. The Outlook user never has to deal directly with key exchange or change their familiar email environment making HushMail ProfessionalTM the easiest form of secure business and personal communication available.

"Hush Communications has developed an Outlook 2000 security solution that can overcome interoperability issues and leverage the benefits of transparently managed PKI," said Ben Cutler for Hush Communications. "With the millions of copies of Windows 2000 in use globally, I feel that this solution is an excellent way for robust security and ease of use to become synonymous with PKI solutions.”

Hush's patented proprietary technology provides the foundation for HushMail Professional. It allows for seamless integration with the Microsoft Outlook email client. The solution is targeted at organizations within financial services, medical clinics, accounting, law and recruitment firms that utilize the Internet. With HushMail Professional, confidential documents can be sent securely from a desktop rather than via a physical courier service. Clients who have reviewed the new plug-in include; State of Alaska (www.hss.state.ak.us/dma/), SouthWest Business Corporation (www.swbc.com), and Forward Advantage (www.forwardadvantage.com).

"Hush has carried out extensive development to ensure the Windows 2000 and HushMail Professional relationship has been fully tested,” said Dan K. Sadler, Information Services Manager for the State of Alaska, Department of Health and Social Services, Division of Medical Assistance. “The division has actively participated in the HushMail Professional integration with Outlook 2000 and is enthusiastic about implementing the product for simple, secure communications, especially in the light of fast approaching federal HIPAA requirements affecting the healthcare industry."

"IT system security is harder to achieve because of the variety of contrasting software available on the market today,” explained Brad Young, Marketing Director, with SWBC. “So Hush's integration with Outlook 2000 is a major breakthrough for customers who need to create secure communications channels without changing their existing email provider. Hush is helping companies implement a robust e-business foundation with a cost effective solution that allows them to securely extend their communications on the Internet and remain in their familiar environment."

"In creating this solution for Outlook 2000, Hush continues to give its global customers flexibility and choice by providing a mass market, easy to use, PKI that fits into their familiar mail environment with the unrivaled security and features found in HushMail Professional," concluded Cutler, for Hush Communications. "Both new and existing customers communicating in an Outlook 2000 environment can benefit from the robust security when communicating sensitive data over the Internet while Hush transparently manages the deployment,"
