Jan 20, 2010, 07:00 ET from China Information Security Technology, Inc.

SHENZHEN, China, Jan. 20 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- China Information Security Technology, Inc., (Nasdaq: CPBY) ("CIST" or the "Company"), a leading total solutions provider of digital security, geographic information, and hospital information systems in China, today announced that its proprietary GIS software, GeoGlobe 3.0 ("GeoGlobe") has been selected as a "Recommended Software of 2009" by the China Software Industry Association ("CSIA").

GeoGlobe 3.0 is a new generation of GIS platform software. Among many of its advantages, the most outstanding one is its ability to allow alternative operating platforms to interoperate. This break-through can enable cross-platform integration of user functions and realize broad commercialization of GIS applications. Another key break-through is that GeoGlobe 3.0 enables end users to access server-end data updates on a real-time basis.

The Recommended Software award aims to select excellent software products nationwide and cultivate well-known domestic software brands in China. Winning products will receive priority treatment in being procured by the government for large-scale purchases, information engineering projects and as candidates for software exports. The CSIA is a nationwide organization overseen by the PRC's Ministry of Industry and Information, with the goal of promoting the development of China's software industry and providing a hub for such products in overseas markets.

Mr. Jiang Huai Lin, Chairman and CEO of CIST, commented, "We are honored to receive the Recommended Software award from the China Software Industry Association. We believe this award is a recognition of the innovative and advanced features of our GeoGlobe software, which is a highly scalable and compatible software featuring multi-sourced, multi-structured spatial information sharing and inter-operation capabilities. It is also a validation of our persistent efforts to technologically innovate the domestic GIS industry. GeoGlobe has been proven successful in various fields such as electricity generation, emergency response, public transportation, and land resource and city planning. We expect that, in light of the Chinese government's current support of the domestic GIS product market, and its aim to construct a national public service GIS platform, we will be able to leverage this award to capture more market opportunities as they arise."
