Open Text Connectivity Secure Server(TM) Solution Positioned as Leader in Research Study

    Tolly Group Finds Connectivity Secure Server Offers Best Total Cost of
    Ownership Compared to All Other Products Tested

    WATERLOO, ON, Jan. 21 /CNW/ - Open Text Corporation (NASDAQ:   OTEX, TSX:
OTC), a global leader in Enterprise Content Management (ECM), today announced
the results of a new study establishing the superior performance and
scalability of Connectivity Secure Server(TM).
    With billions of dollars of annual losses attributed to security
breaches, organizations are under increasing pressure from auditors and
shareholders to step up their security efforts. Connectivity Secure Server is
a high-performance server for Windows which offers SFTP file transfer and
secure terminal sessions, as well as FIPS 140-2 validated encryption for
securing network traffic.

    Open Text commissioned The Tolly Group to compare Connectivity Secure
Server against other secure shell server products. Key findings of the report

    -   Delivers the highest performance and maximum scalability of the three
        secure shell server products tested
    -   Costs up to 12X less to support 1,000 concurrent SFTP connections
        than rival products tested
    -   Completes 1,000 SFTP file transfer sessions from four PC clients on a
        single server, while other servers tested failed to scale properly
    -   Imposes less overhead on host server CPU than other products tested
    -   Uses 9X less server CPU memory than other products tested to complete
        36MB file transfer to client

    "Not all secure shell server products are created equal," said Kevin
Tolly, founder of The Tolly Group. "Our testing shows Connectivity Secure
Server consistently outperformed rival product offerings tested delivering
superior processing speed by completing single file transfer up to 24X faster
than the other two competitors at a fraction of the total cost."
    "Our product was designed for our customers who are not willing to
compromise between security, performance and cost to fulfill their
connectivity needs," said Eugene Cherny, General Manager for connectivity
solutions at Open Text. "Connectivity Secure Server follows the tradition of
technology excellence and customer commitment which we started with Exceed(R)
20 years ago."
