FastStart Bundle Provides Software Publishers with Reliable and Secure Infrastructure to Host Globetrotter’s GTlicensing™ Licence Delivery System

London – February 19th, 2002 – Conxion Corporation, the reliability and performance leader in managed hosting, and Globetrotter Software, a division of Macrovision Corporation (Nasdaq: MVSN), a world leader in digital rights management technologies, announced today that they have signed an alliance agreement to provide a solution which helps software publishers utilise GTlicensing™ to manage the delivery of FLEXlm® licences to their customers. The GTlicensing Fast Start Bundle, powered by Conxion, includes all the server hardware, software, security and installation assistance necessary to rapidly deploy Globetrotter’s GTlicensing solution within Conxion’s managed hosting datacentres in the US and the UK.

The GTlicensing Fast Start Bundle is available immediately as part of a comprehensive hosting solution that includes access to Conxion’s Tier 1, high performance digital delivery network and its ability to store, track and deliver customer software along with the electronic licence.

“This is an exciting combination of technologies addressing the same problem from different points of view in order to create a comprehensive solution,” said Mark Belinsky, Globetrotter’s senior vice president and general manager. “Globetrotter provides the application that streamlines the distribution of FLEXlm software licences, and Conxion provides the infrastructure that ensures the reliable and secure delivery of both licences and software. In particular, by outsourcing to Conxion, a software vendor can leverage Conxion’s proven experience in providing reliable hosting solutions, minimising the likelihood of any unplanned interruption in licence generation or distribution capabilities.”

“Leveraging Conxion’s Tier 1 backbone and our HotRoute™ digital delivery network (DDN), we have a complete strategy to provide comprehensive digital fulfilment solutions to our customers,” said Greg Quinn, Conxion’s vice president, sales and strategic alliances. “As the clear market leader in electronic licence management and electronic licence distribution solutions for major software vendors such as Cadence, Cisco, Mentor Graphics, Autodesk, Micromuse, Sun Microsystems, and Sybase, Globetrotter is the perfect partner for us in the delivery of these services.”
