PALO ALTO, Calif. -- January 7, 2013

Symphony Teleca Corporation, the services organization dedicated exclusively
to helping clients manage the global convergence of software, the cloud and
connected devices and Discretix, the leading provider of field-proven content
protection and embedded security solutions, today announced the successful
deployment of multiple Android devices using its Open Mobile Alliance Digital
Rights Management (OMA DRM) v1.0 solution.

OMA DRM is a widely deployed DRM scheme, used by hundreds of mobile operators
in the United States, Europe, Asia and Latin America for securing video, music
and ringtone services. To support the OMA DRM v1.0 scheme, Android requires
adaptations to all multimedia applications.

The pre-packaged Symphony Teleca-Discretix offering is the most complete and
field-proven solution in the marketplace, meeting the operator's requirements
for OMA DRM v1.0; ensuring reduced time-to-market; and providing support for
future versions of Android. The Discretix OMA DRM v1.0 product provides
complete support for all the required content delivery methods including
Forward Lock, Combined Delivery and Separate Delivery, and is now offered as a
DRM Framework plug-in. Symphony Teleca provides an integrated solution based
on the Discretix OMA DRM v1.0 product with full OMA DRM v1.0 application
support for Android.

“The collaboration between Symphony Teleca and Discretix allows our customers
to have a complete, operator-compatible, OMA DRM solution with a very short
time-to-market,” said Amit Shofar, Vice President Business Development,

“Since the announcement of our collaboration with Discretix during Mobile
World Congress 2012 we have successfully delivered multiple deployments of the
Discretix solution to mobile device manufacturers. As a recent example we are
extremely proud to work with Kyocera, a leading and highly innovative Japanese
mobile phone brand, integrating and customizing the Discretix OMA DRM solution
into their latest mobile phone products aimed at the international market,”
said Robert Kempf, Vice President Marketing & Technology, Mobile and Connected
Division, Symphony Teleca.

“Kyocera was very pleased by the expertise, responsiveness and quality of
deliverables from Symphony Teleca. Selecting Symphony Teleca as an OMA DRM
integration partner was the perfect choice and ensured high quality and
on-time delivery for our products,” said Hiroyuki Kusaka, Manager of Software
Department, Corporate Communication Equipment Group, Kyocera Corporation.
