With Certicom's elliptic curve cryptography Vaultus enables next-generation encryption for mobile workforce

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario - (September 26, 2007)Certicom Corp. (TSX: CIC) today announced that Vaultus Mobile Technologies has licensed Certicom's Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) technology to ensure the Vaultus Mobile Application Platform continues to provide powerful, standards-based security for mobile workers who demand highly secure access to their corporate applications and data.

This contract is an expansion of an existing agreement between the two companies that dates back to 2000, when Vaultus licensed Certicom's ECC technology to provide high-end security for its Mobile Sales/Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Reporting Dashboards, Help Desk, Field Service, Directory and other mobile solutions running on BlackBerry and Windows CE devices. With the new agreement, Vaultus will extend its ECC license with Certicom to include Vaultus applications deployed on BlackBerry, Symbian and Windows Mobile operating systems.

By implementing Certicom's Security Builder® Crypto™ in VMAP, Vaultus can offer its customers the most secure access to their enterprise applications, data and processes via BlackBerry, Symbian or Windows Mobile devices. Security Builder is the ideal cryptography solution because it is optimized for small code size and includes a range of current and legacy algorithms that provide proven security for resource-constrained mobile devices. Because of ECC's strength and efficiency, and compliance with government and commercial standards, a growing number of organizations worldwide are implementing ECC today.

"Vaultus has become a leader in Enterprise Mobility by giving mobile workers fast, intuitive and complete access to their critical applications and data, and by protecting that information with the best standards-based security available," said Arvind Goyal, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at Vaultus. "We have worked with Certicom over the years because their comprehensive cryptographic suite allows us to select the features we need for our latest mobile applications. Moreover, Certicom's technology supports Vaultus' core philosophy of delivering a best-of-breed mobile user experience by enabling faster processing, better bandwidth usage, optimized storage and longer battery life."

Security Builder Crypto is the cross-platform cryptographic module of the Certicom Security Architecture that helps customers meet the evolving security needs of today's mobile client-server application environments, mobile platforms and operating systems and next-generation mobile networks. Because Certicom has embraced a standards-based approach to ECC, their architecture enables companies to use a common application programming interface across multiple platforms and devices to easily add security features as needed, therefore enabling developers to get to market faster.

"In recent years the emergence of reliable, high-speed wireless networks has led to an increasing number of business applications that mobile workers need to perform their jobs effectively," said Bernard Crotty, president and CEO of Certicom. "Our standards-based cryptographic solutions, like Security Builder Crypto, are enabling companies like Vaultus to deliver the next-generation of secure mobile applications to customers today."
