    TORONTO, Sept. 27 /CNW/ -- Market Regulation Services Inc. (RS),
announced today it has chosen Echoworx EMX to exchange encrypted messages and
attachments with market participants. RS is the independent regulation

secure collaborative portal where large communities of disparate users can
exchange digitally signed and encrypted messages.
    RS' mandate is to ensure investor confidence and market integrity.  EMX
helps RS fulfill this mandate by providing a communications channel between RS
and market participants to ensure information is protected against
unauthorized modification or interception. EMX provides RS with audit
reporting which delivers a quick and easy way to track filing of highly
confidential information like Short Position Reporting, Alert Notifications,
and Gatekeeper Reports.
    "We looked at a number of solutions to replace our existing system and
chose Echoworx EMX because it delivered the requisite level of security and
audit reporting we needed to communicate sensitive information with market
participants," said Maureen Jensen, President and CEO of Market Regulation
Services. "EMX gives market participants access to a secure collaboration
portal where they can easily exchange encrypted information, with the
confidence of industry trusted PKI and S/MIME based encryption."
    "We are very pleased to have been chosen by RS, which is entrusted with
the efficient regulation and operation of Canadian equity markets," said
Michael Ginsberg, President and CEO of Echoworx. "EMX gives organizations and
companies of all sizes the flexibility of communicating securely amongst
themselves and members outside their organization with no impact to their
email infrastructure or the need to adopt any additional software."

    About EMX
    
    Echoworx Encrypted Message Exchange is a secure web-based service that
enables members to exchange encrypted PKI-based messages and attachments
through a secure SSL/TLS web interface. EMX Members have the ability to
receive, reply, forward and store their encrypted messages and attachments. A
simple web registration is required to become an EMX member. Once the EMX
member is registered, they are assigned individual private keys, which will
authenticate them each time they access EMX. Each member has a personal EMX
inbox. Members receive email notifications each time they receive an encrypted
message. Upon receipt of a message, members click "open message", and are
taken directly to the EMX secure website. Members authenticate themselves by
entering their email address and password information. The EMX service is
licensed on a per user subscription basis to companies that want to ensure the
privacy of their digital communications amongst a closed user community.
