We are pleased to be working with Marrakech to help companies leverage
these services and enhance existing inter-company trade relationships."

"While there is currently a significant amount of hype being driven by B2B
technology vendors with promises of a business revolution, we believe the
long term fundamentals of a secure business environment for commercial
transactions will deliver substantial long term value for participants,"
according to Kelly Murphy, chief executive officer at Marrakech. "The
secret to the successful provision of this environment is a service that
reflects the needs of the trading partners and focuses on making the
relationships between them faster and more effective than they are today.
That's the Marrakech proposition."

security architecture for the platform to reach critical mass in terms of
market participation and liquidity. Marrakech's objective is to provide a
secure online commerce environment within the Marrakech Global Commerce
Network and its work with RSA Security is critical to achieving this goal.
