    CLEARWATER, Fla., April 11 /PRNewswire/ -- OpenNetwork Technologies, a
 developer of e-business security software, today announced its
 DirectorySmart(TM) platform has achieved the best results in the industry for
 Web access-control performance and near linear scalability, according to a
 report published by independent testing lab, Mindcraft Inc.
     Mindcraft's testing, which was conducted at Sun's test labs in Frankfurt,
 Germany, simulated user authentication and authorization to access protected
 Web resources.  According to the test results, DirectorySmart delivered the
 highest levels of access-control performance -- 146,051 logins and 25,428
 extranet sequences (279,708 operations) per minute.  In addition, Mindcraft
 concluded that DirectorySmart demonstrated outstanding scalability to manage
 the rapid growth of Web traffic.
     "DirectorySmart outperformed competing products that we have evaluated and
 set new records for authentication/authorization performance," said Bruce
 Weiner, president of Mindcraft.  "Our tests show that DirectorySmart easily
 supports secure access for a million users while providing linear scalability
 as additional Web servers are added to the infrastructure."
     Mindcraft conducted the performance test of DirectorySmart 4.6 on Sun
 Enterprise Servers at Sun's test lab in Frankfurt, Germany, using Mindcraft's
 iLOAD MVP(TM) test tool running its AuthMark(TM) Login and Extranet scenarios.
     "We're extremely pleased by the results. They validate DirectorySmart's
 industry-leading Web access control capabilities and further demonstrate our
 ability to deliver unrivalled value to our customers," said Kurt Long,
 president and CEO of OpenNetwork.  "This, coupled with DirectorySmart's
 delegated user and role-based policy management, provides e-businesses with a
 comprehensive and scalable infrastructure."
