LONDON -- January 16, 2013

Email solution provider, Gordano Ltd (www.gordano.com) announces a partnership
with NEC Corporation (www.nec.com). Backed by new integration capabilities for
Gordano GMS messaging software, this partnership represents a substantial step
towards leveraging the CSP cloud market.

Gordano understands that the messaging market is changing – businesses expect
to reduce not only their overheads, but the complexity of their software
usage. There is a growing trend for companies to outsource their needs and
look for SaaS solutions.

Partnering with NEC has enabled an evolving engagement with cloud markets for
Gordano - yet Gordano are not simply offering a cloud solution. They have
created a comprehensive platform for white labelling and integration with
systems already in place within the telecoms and carrier sectors.

The web interface has been made into a RESTful service – this means backend
functionality has been exposed through APIs. This has permitted the
implementation of a more standardised scripting language, making the software
more customisable which allows for more bespoke deployments.

This represents a major advancement of the software’s capabilities; it is now
more adaptable – the process of integrating into other environments is now
much easier.

One such environment is the NEC Cloud Marketplace. This newly realised
potential has led to Gordano partnering with NEC, a leader in the integration
of IT and network technologies, to deliver its Cloud services – GMS Cloudline
– to a much wider market.

   “The door to a world of possibilities is now open. There are substantial
opportunities available to us now that simply were not there in the past. The
 potential is there for us to expand and consolidate our position within the
                           messaging environment”.

             Ben Dobson, Technical Services Manager, Gordano Ltd.

The NEC Cloud Marketplace is a scalable aggregation platform consisting of a
range of business oriented services to be sold to communication service
providers (CSPs) and telecommunication operators globally. In turn, they get
additional “Over the Top” revenues by offering these solutions to their
customers easily, quickly and effectively from a single, integrated location.
It also allows carriers to customise their marketplaces by populating it with
third-party services.

That one of the solutions in this marketplace will be Gordano’s SaaS offering,
GMS Cloudline, is just the beginning. The capacity for extensive integration
via the ESB (Enterprise Service Bus) means that there will be further
partnership prospects and opportunities for the company.

About Gordano Ltd

Gordano Ltd has been developing innovative messaging software since 1994. From
the original email server running under Windows NT only, the software was
completely re-written to provide a rich–client webmail interface, with
seamlessly integrated anti-virus and comprehensive anti-spam, compatible for
both Windows and Linux platforms.

Security is paramount in the development processes used by GMS and SSL is
supported throughout the product. Full groupware capabilities were introduced
allowing Microsoft Outlook integration providing a real alternative to
Microsoft Exchange, while providing complete functional interoperability
between Outlook and Gordano's fully featured webmail client.

Gordano is evolving its market engagement by addressing both the ongoing needs
of the on-premise customer, and new requests for cloud solutions. Gordano is
mindful that for a business-critical application such as email, changes to the
delivery of messaging services need to be carefully considered. Gordano is
offering a broad spectrum of solutions, providing facilitation as the cloud
market grows.
