Waterloo, ON " January 21, 2009 - 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.

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 include:

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' 20 years ago."
