IBM Unveils Services

ARMONK, N.Y. -- Helping mid-sized businesses to minimize business risk and maximize business efficiency in a global economy, IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced the latest additions and enhancements to its mid-market solutions and Express Advantage offerings.

Additions to the Express Advantage portfolio include two offerings designed to address the growing need for mid-market business continuity solutions -- a security-rich offsite data backup and recovery service, and an e-mail continuity and archiving service. Also available today are a suite of recently announced Internet threat mitigation services and new POWER6 and Intel processor-based servers, providing increased application choice and reduced energy and administration costs.

IBM Express Advantage combines a comprehensive portfolio of technology offerings, business solutions and financing options with a network of local IBM Business Partners and dedicated Concierge customer support service to create a powerful, end-to-end approach for helping the mid-sized customer increase efficiency, advance their innovation agenda and grow. IBM continues to leverage these capabilities to differentiate itself in the marketplace and drive growth in the $253 billion mid-market, one of IBM's largest and fastest growing market opportunities.

"The latest Express Advantage offerings address some of the biggest pain points that our customers face and IBM's continued expansion of its portfolio, particularly in security and productivity solutions, is extremely valuable to our business," said Greg Faust, CEO of Valid Technologies. "Express Advantage makes it easy to find and implement solutions that are proven, reliable, and backed by the best of breed support teams. Now more than ever IBM makes it easy to leverage the technical innovations that deliver business differentiation and spur growth."
