November 19, 2012

BURLINGTON, Massachusetts and SAN FRANCISCO, November 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

Attunity Ltd. (NASDAQ: ATTU), a leading provider of information availability software
solutions, and OPSWAT Inc., a leader in multi-engine malware scanning solutions, announced
today a partnership to combine the award-winning Attunity Managed File Transfer (MFT)
solution with OPSWAT’s Metascan file scanning technology. The collaboration is designed to
facilitate the availability of a fully-managed solution that automates, secures and
accelerates the delivery of files across partner portals, business applications, business
users and cloud ecosystems.

Providing automated inspection policy enforcement, the combined Attunity and OPSWAT
platform will enable organizations operating in highly-regulated industries to invoke
virus and malware scanning as part of an end-to-end file transfer process. Customers in
the Financial Services, Healthcare, Energy and Utilities industries, in which multi-tier,
highly-secure networking infrastructures are commonplace, can greatly benefit from the
solution’s accelerated, turnkey capabilities.

“Through our partnership with Attunity, we are able to deliver a joint solution that
effectively empowers customers to incorporate multiple-engine malware scanning into their
file transfer workflow quickly and easily,” said Jeff Garon, Director of Sales and Product
Marketing at OPSWAT. “Using anywhere from 4 to more than 20 different antivirus engines to
scan files, Metascan increases detection rates for all types of malware without the hassle
of licensing, modifying and maintaining multiple engines. Before transferring files with
Attunity MFT, customers can quickly and thoroughly check for the presence of threats by
scanning with Metascan.”

“Attunity’s strategic collaboration with OPSWAT will provide our customers with the
ability to implement a robust, turnkey solution while delivering information quickly and
securely to businesses,” said Garrick Herrmann, Vice President of Sales at Attunity.
“Attunity MFT is unique in that it provides a high fidelity means to seamlessly move files
from external networks and internal environments, while providing an extensive portfolio
of policy-based inspection, scanning and routing capabilities. Its high efficiency in
managing and automating various inspection policies combined with OPSWAT’s security
