Attunity and KOM Networks Partner to Deliver Secure File Transfer and Archiving to Meet Compliance and Regulatory Needs

February 6, 2013

BURLINGTON, Massachusetts and OTTAWA, Ontario, February 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

Attunity Ltd. (NASDAQ: ATTU), a leading provider of information availability
software solutions, and KOM Networks, a leading provider of secure storage management
solutions for compliant data protection and retention, announced today a technology
alliance partnership that will combine Attunity Managed File Transfer (MFT) and KOM
Network’s KOMpliance(TM). Integration of the two award-winning solutions will provide
fully-managed file transfer capabilities and comprehensive archive storage. The combined
solution is designed to enable seamless and secure data management for organizations with
strict compliance and regulatory requirements.

Enterprise applications, automated processes and growing digital commerce create
ever-increasing numbers of files including emails, records, financial transactions and
images. Compliance rules and regulations increase the amount of data that must be retained
while adding layer upon layer of complexity in data management. The costs of meeting these
regulations, including data storage, protection, retention, and controlled information
access can severely tax a company’s IT and business resources. Attunity and KOM Networks
have joined forces to alleviate these burdens with an integrated transfer and universal
WORM storage repository using any hard disk or solid state drive infrastructure.

Designed to seamlessly move files from external networks and internal environments in
a controlled, audited manner, Attunity MFT provides an extensive portfolio of policy-based
inspection, scanning and routing capabilities. Combined with KOM Network’s KOMpliance, an
enterprise-level, regulatory-compliant, networked storage appliance, the result is a
complete solution that will enable companies to easily transfer, retain, protect and
access their data in one platform, and empower them to meet regulatory and corporate
compliance requirements efficiently and affordably.

“KOM Networks and Attunity are like-minded. We fully recognize the compliance and IT
challenges that exist and intend to address them head-on with this technology alliance,”
said Kamel Shaath, CTO at KOM Networks. “Combining our proven vendor-neutral tamperproof
storage solutions with Attunity’s file transfer technology enables us to ensure that
critical data is fully archived, audited and protected 100% of the time – starting with
the transfer process and remaining so through retention and final disposition. This
enables enterprises and small to medium businesses to meet their most stringent regulatory
and corporate requirements. Customers will also appreciate the out-of-the-box
functionality and easy implementation our joint solution will offer.”

“Security, automation and archiving are major concerns for our respective customers,”
said Garrick Herrmann, VP Sales at Attunity. “In addition to traditional file transfer
needs, customers continue to express a need to use Attunity MFT as a gateway to archiving.
By integrating our technology with KOM Networks’, we are addressing these needs so that
organizations will now be able to tap into multiple file sources with Attunity MFT and
then push data packages into KOMpliance(TM) in a single, fully-managed effort. We look
forward to helping our joint customers streamline their secure archiving initiatives.”
