VeriSign and JoWooD Set New Standards in Mobile Gaming

Liezen/Vienna, Austria, October 4th, 2006 -- VeriSign, Inc., (NASDAQ: VRSN), the leading provider of intelligent infrastructure for the networked world, today announced its partnership with JoWooD Productions Software AG (ATXPrime: JWD), to deliver wildly popular computer, online- and videogames to mobile devices.

"VeriSign is committed to providing the richest content with an exceptional user experience that is most relevant to our customer’s customer," said Kevin Dent, Head of International Licensing and Syndication for VeriSign.  "JoWooD has great blockbuster brands which we feel can make an easy transition to the mobile space. The combination of expertise from JoWooD and VeriSign brings a new force to the gaming marketplace."  Frost & Sullivan (http://www.mobileandwireless.frost.com) finds that the Global Mobile Gaming Markets earned revenues of 3 billion dollars in 2005 and estimates this to reach 13 billion dollars in 2011. "VeriSign has always been committed to the growth of the global premium mobile content markets," said Vikrant Gandhi, Industry Analyst for Frost & Sullivan. "The VeriSign and JoWooD partnership will allow consumers to play the most popular computer, online - and video games on their mobile devices and not be forced to choose from titles they are not familiar with."

The game concepts, delivered by JoWooD this year already, have not yet been seen in the mobile marketplace. VeriSign transforms these best selling and classic computer, online and video games into a Java-application for various mobile devices in the market place.
