Rockliffe Grows 50% in 2002 Despite Sluggish Economy
Messaging Infrastructure Developer Continues Expansion

    Cambell, CA (ots) - Rockliffe, Inc., a leading developer of
messaging and email infrastructure software, today announced that its
revenues increased by 50% in 2002 despite a widespread slowdown in
the information technology market. The company attributed its success
to a number of factors, including the exceptional scalability and
rock-solid reliability of Rockliffe MailSite version 5, new virus
protection and an increase in its customer base.
    The service provider market accounted for several new Rockliffe
customers in 2002, while other existing service provider customers
doubled and tripled their MailSite subscriber bases. These customers
found MailSite to be a perfect solution, providing great scalability
and fault tolerance while reducing costs. Other service providers
switched to MailSite in 2002 because they had reached the scalability
limits of competing products. MailSite also celebrated its sixth
birthday and received recognition from Windows & .Net Magazine by
winning its Reader's Choice Award.
    In addition to expanding its customer base in 2002, Rockliffe
expanded its workforce. The company hired vice presidents of customer
service and marketing and doubled the size of its global sales team
during the year. Rockliffe also opened an office in London in 2002.
    Rockliffe plans additional expansion in early 2003. The company
will introduce Rockliffe MailSite NS for HP NonStop Servers, a
carrier- scale messaging platform jointly developed with
Hewlett-Packard. Rockliffe will also expand its global support
    "Despite the apparent maturity of the email market, we continue to
see strong sales in all market segments," said John Davies, Rockliffe
president and CEO. "We continue to deliver new functionality that
customers require, like anti-virus. Our sales are growing, despite
the downturn in the global economy that has hurt other vendors."
    Analysts also noted that recent world events have caused an
increased reliability on email as an indispensable communications
tool. "Within the last ten years, the role of Information Technology
has evolved to be viewed as a contributor towards company
profitability. The delivery of services is based on the reliability
of the company's IT infrastructure and messaging systems. Rockliffe's
MailSite products offer reliability and stability," said Robert
Mahowald of IDC.
