Phoenix Technologies Ltd. Signs 500 Channel Partners to Trusted Partner Network Program; Endpoint Security and Availability Offerings Provide Partners With Incremental Revenue and Value-Added Capabilities.

MILPITAS, Calif. -- Phoenix Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq:PTEC) today announced that 500 solution providers and value-added resellers (VARs) have joined the Phoenix Trusted Partner Network to provide unique endpoint security and availability software and services to new and existing customers. The global program provides Phoenix partners with all the tools and resources needed to expand revenue and offer a strong value proposition to their customers. The Phoenix family of endpoint applications, which includes Recover Pro(TM), TrustConnector(TM) and ImageCast(R), are entirely complementary to existing products.

"Enterprise and government providers want to complement and expand their endpoint security and availability offerings and are looking for software vendors that are committed to fostering, promoting and driving partner sales through channel partners," said Albert E. Sisto, president and CEO, Phoenix Technologies Ltd. "This 500-member milestone demonstrates early success for the Phoenix Trusted Partner Network and our growth in these new markets."

Helio Solutions, a premier technology integrator and data center solutions provider for all-sized companies, ranging from technology-centric small businesses to Fortune 1000 companies, is the 500th member of the Phoenix Trusted Partner Network program. Helio Solutions focuses on delivering highly available, high-performing data center solutions that maximize its customers' IT investments and meet short- and long-term business needs.

"We are excited in becoming Phoenix's 500th Trusted Partner Network Member and look forward to the benefits such a partnership program can provide a technology integrator like Helio," said Bill Lopez, CIO/CSO for Helio Solutions. "In addition to integrating Phoenix's applications into our go-to-market technology and services portfolio, we are also evaluating their technology for possible deployment within our own corporation."

The Phoenix Trusted Partner Network is uniquely designed to help providers develop new endpoint security and availability revenue and profit opportunities while working with a vendor committed to delivering software and services exclusively through channel partners. Phoenix provides partners with all the sales, marketing, training and technical resources and tools necessary to deliver strategic value to customers through its Trusted Partner Network Channel Portal including the Phoenix Online Training Center. Partners qualify for access to specific program offerings based upon their level of commitment to developing Phoenix product expertise and investment in sales and technical training.

"Phoenix solutions, such as Recover Pro and TrustConnector, complement our prior endpoint security and recovery offerings and allow us to provide additional value to our government and education customers," said Ryan Yu, president of Daly Computers.
