    SAN FRANCISCO, April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- CSI, Communications Services
 International S.r.l. (www.csiusa.net), the leading international developer of
 secure data exchange technology over public networks, today announced that it
 has joined RSA Security's (Nasdaq: RSAS)  RSA Secured(TM) Partner Program to
 support interoperability between BDE(TM) (Business Data Exchange) and RSA
 Keon(R) public key infrastructure (PKI) software.
     As part of the program, BDE has been awarded "RSA Secured RSA Keon Ready"
 certification signaling its compatibility with RSA Security's digital
 certificate software.  The RSA Secured certification lets organizations know
 that BDE is compatible with RSA Security's market-leading security products
 and technologies.  As a result, these enhancements round out BDE's
 capabilities for transmitting business-critical information and e-commerce
 transactions reliably and securely via the Internet.
     Maurizio Balestrieri, CSI's chief executive officer, noted, "We chose to
 work with RSA Security because they are a leader in e-security solutions and
 their PKI technology is proven.  We were able to easily integrate the RSA Keon
 PKI software into BDE allowing us to welcome users of RSA Keon certificates
 into a BDE document exchange community.  This is another reason that ensures
 BDE will quickly become the standard for secure B2B communication exchanges."
     "We are pleased to welcome CSI to the RSA Secured Partner Program," said
 Robert Pritchard, vice president of corporate and partner development at RSA
 Security.  "BDE is uniquely positioned to enable companies to overcome
 infrastructure challenges in their ability to communicate and transact with
 business partners using disparate systems and applications.  We look forward
 to working with a company using open networks to enable dynamic
 communications."
