CHENNAI, India, May 30, 2000 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Satyam Infoway, (Nasdaq:SIFY) India's leading Internet and eCommerce solutions provider, today announced a partnership with VeriSign (Nasdaq:VRSN), the leading provider of Internet trust services, to provide managed digital certificate-based authentication services for India. Satyam Infoway would be the Principal Affiliate of VeriSign in India.

Digital certificates and PKI can be used to secure a wide range of business-to-consumer (B2C) and business-to-business (B2B) applications over the Internet. Digital certificates are electronic credentials that identify parties online, enabling encrypted communications and legally binding, valid digital signatures for online transactions in eCommerce, financial service, supply-chain management, virtual private networks (VPN), as well as wireless and mobile commerce environments.
"With the passing of the landmark IT bill by the Indian parliament, India has joined a select group of countries worldwide that provide a framework for conducting business and transactions electronically," said R Ramaraj, Managing Director & CEO, Satyam Infoway. "Satyam Infoway, as VeriSign's Principal Affiliate, will enable businesses and individuals in India to obtain and implement digital certificates and PKI based solutions and integrate the same into their web servers, email systems, intranets and other applications. Working with VeriSign gives us the ability to offer the Indian market secure PKI solutions that will be globally compatible and interoperable."

"We believe that Satyam Infoway's local leadership, well-respected brand and eCommerce application expertise coupled with VeriSign's scalable technology platform will give enterprises and individuals in India access to secure eCommerce solutions."
Satyam Infoway will combine VeriSign's global Internet expertise with its own eCommerce services to serve customers in India, adhering to the Indian legal and financial systems.
