has made quite an impact at the show with their live demonstration of
the prevention of security invasion techniques, and notably their secure
internet data back-up products and services."
"We were very pleased with the reception we received in Australia and
are optimistic that this will be a very successful market for JAWS,"

internet data storage and back-up is almost infinitely scaleable due to
the incredible growth rates of data volume that are projected worldwide.
This award is yet another international recognition that JAWS is truly a
leader in comprehensive security solutions, especially when combined
with the unique nature of our secure data storage services specialized
to information critical businesses served by our ASP, Medical, Financial

"With the proliferation of bandwidth and international connectivity, we
are negotiating with a number of international partners to participate

these negotiations will result in partnership agreements within the next
few weeks," said Kubbernus.
In another development on June 8, investment dealer Bear Stearns
released the Comprehensive Internet Security Industry Report forecasting
a $15 billion market for security solutions by 2004. "As corporations
launch e-commerce strategies and begin migrating mission-critical
applications to the Internet, demand for security solutions could
accelerate dramatically over the next several years, potentially
creating a $15 billion market by 2004." The report also states, "the
deployment of broadband Internet access services over the next few years
could trigger yet another important growth phase for these vendors.
These technologies, which deliver "always on" connectivity, could pose a
whole new set of security challenges for corporations." The report in
summary says, "we believe the best investment choices in this space can
be found among the firms that can deliver complete end-to-end security
Kubbernus commented that "this type of excellent market recognition from
a very significant institution in the financial community not only
validates the unique need for the type of end-to-end security approach
that JAWS offers, it helps to establish industry wide financial
valuation parameters that security companies can and should be measured
by," said Kubbernus. "We are optimistic that the trends that Bear
Stearns recognizes, in this report, will positively impact JAWS as our
business plan gains further success and our revenues continue to
increase at industry leading rates."
