    Mountain View, California and Rockville, Maryland (ots/PRNewswire) -

    - Geolocation to Help Protect International Importers/Exporters From  Costly Regulatory Violations

    Quova, Inc., the world's leading provider and developer of web geography  services and technologies, and NextLinx Corporation, the leading provider of  global trade content and management solutions, today announced a strategic  partnership to help global trade companies comply with regulations against  trading with restricted parties -- embargoed countries, terrorist  organizations or other sanctioned customers.

    NextLinx will offer Quova's patented GeoPoint geolocation solution, which  identifies the geographic location of Internet users in real time, in  conjunction with the NextLinx Restricted Party Screening (RPS) Engine to help  importers and exporters determine whether they are transacting with an  illegal, blocked or sanctioned customer. Regulatory violations, even  inadvertent, can result in trade sanctions, fines or imprisonment of  executives.

    "Executing global business in today's security-conscious world is all  about knowing your customer," said Marie Alexander, president and CEO of  Quova. "NextLinx is setting the standard for global trade compliance, and  Quova's geolocation will help raise that standard even higher by enabling  companies to know where their online customers really are. This is a timely  partnership with tremendous potential for Quova, NextLinx and the global  enterprises we work with."

    "Screening your partners, suppliers and customers is a must for today's  global corporation to remain competitive, reduce risk and maintain  regulatory compliance," said Rajiv Uppal, founder, president and CEO of  NextLinx Corporation.  "We are thrilled to align with Quova to offer our  joint customers the ability to verify their customers' geographic locations  in real-time coupled with our restricted party screening capability.  The  NextLinx, Quova partnership will provide the market with a higher level of  fraud protection, enabling companies worldwide to avoid costly regulatory violations and ensure legitimate customer transactions.

    NextLinx Restricted Party Screening identifies whether a party to a  shipment has been placed on any official denied persons or illegal transshipper list, blocked from import or export transactions, or sanctioned  by a government for illegal acts such as child or convict labor violations.
