London, July 19th 2004 - Attenda, Europe's leading specialist in operating enterprise and Internet applications, today announced that Benfield, a leading reinsurance intermediary, has selected Attenda to host its Internet application. Benfield selected Attenda due to the company's focus on application availability, performance and security, which echo Benfield's own service-orientated ethos. Previously, Benfield's Internet application had been hosted in the United States but suffered from frequent downtime and lack of resilience. By partnering with Attenda, Benfield will benefit from an industry leading business oriented Service Level Agreement.

Peter Stephenson, Global IT Co-ordinator at Benfield said, "As a global organisation, we know that it is essential that our Internet presence enjoys the highest possible levels of availability and security. Partnering with Attenda gives us the peace of mind; knowing that we are working with one of Europe's most successful companies in this area." Peter continued, "Attenda delivered our solution well ahead of the deadline and has been extremely professional throughout. We look forward to continuing to work with them."

Neal Gandhi, VP Marketing at Attenda said "We are delighted to welcome Benfield to our growing client list, and strengthening our position within the insurance industry, where security and reliability are crucial to ensuring a strong brand. We are confident that we will continue to meet or exceed Benfield's expectations of us and that they will add to the 100% client reference-ability that we already enjoy."
