FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Chelmsford, MA – September 19, 2005 –Biscom (www.biscom.com) announced at the ARMA show today a new version of its FileMarshal secure document delivery solution that will provide integration with Microsoft Outlook.
FileMarshal provides computer users with a highly functional, user-friendly solution for secure and auditable delivery of files and documents. FileMarshal tracks delivery, receipt, and viewing of files. Detailed reports provide statistics such as the number of downloads per month, unique users accessing files, most popular downloads, and other trend analyses.
FileMarshal overcomes the weaknesses that email, FTP, and other Web delivery methods suffer. Unlike “fire and forget” email, FileMarshal deliveries can be retracted by the sender. Also, FileMarshal maintains an audit trail of each recipient’s access to information, which the sender can review in real-time or anytime thereafter.
By integrating with Outlook, FileMarshal eliminates the shortcomings of email by giving Outlook users the ability to send documents securely. Users can schedule and expire deliveries, define notification rules, and password protect deliveries. No software other than a Web browser is required by the recipient to receive the documents.
"FileMarshal extends Biscom's established track record as a multiplatform enterprise fax solution into managed file transfer and secure document delivery," comments Peter Davidson, president and chief analyst at Davidson Consulting. "FileMarshal's API, like FAXCOM's API, makes it possible to integrate the capability into virtually any operating environment."
According to Bill Ho, Vice President of Internet Products at Biscom, “Our experience as an 19-year provider of enterprise document delivery solutions has enabled us to build a powerful solution that is easy to use for the average computer user as well as highly scalable and easy to manage for an administrator.”
FileMarshal 2.0, which adds Outlook integration, is scheduled for release on October 31, 2005. FileMarshal version 1.0, which provides a fully-functional Web-based client, is currently shipping.
Founded in 1986, Biscom pioneered the fax server and host computer integration marketplaces. Biscom has provided many of the world’s largest companies with enterprise communications solutions, most notably its award-winning FAXCOM enterprise fax management solutions. Through acquisitions and the development of new technologies, Biscom has evolved into a provider of multiple product lines, including secure file transfer, file conversion and image viewing and enhanced messaging solutions. Biscom is headquartered in Chelmsford, Massachusetts.
