Respect Network Ends the Year With Four New Development Partners

Companies Will Leverage Infrastructure for Trusted Personal Clouds

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/21/12 -- Respect Network, the world's first personal cloud network, today announced four new Founding Partners: My Professional ID, the first online credential management service for professionals; PAOGA, a UK-based personal data service provider; Cloudstore, the first software distribution platform for personal clouds; and PRIVO, the leader in children's online privacy management.

"The need for trusted online identity and relationship management has never been greater," said Gary Rowe, Respect Network CEO. "Each of these new Development Partners offers a vital new service that will be easier, safer, and more productive over a network of trusted personal clouds. We welcome them to the Founding Partner family, which has grown to 24 companies just since April."

My Professional ID enables professionals to own, control, share and manage their professional records in a secure and private manner. The service's professional-centric approach reduces compliance risk through effective and enduring aggregation of information around the individual, while giving enterprise partners new insight through rich, deep, permissioned connections with professionals.

"Working with the Respect Network Founding Partners was a natural step for us as we share a common goal in establishing the individual at the heart of their own information and driving out the benefits that this approach offers," said Murray Lohoar, Founder of My Professional ID. "It's great to be on board."

PAOGA anticipated the need for individual Trust and Privacy online before it was recognized as a necessity by governments and businesses as a way to reduce costs, transaction times, errors and compliance risks.

"PAOGA is delighted to participate and collaborate in the Respect Network to deliver Trusted Relationship Management (TRM), enabling individuals to access, manage and share their personal information 'under their control, with their consent, for their benefit' from their secure Personal Clouds," offered Graham Sadd, Founder & CEO of PAOGA.

"For proponents of the mainframe, it was very puzzling back then why suddenly millions of people picked up personal computers," said Johannes Ernst, Cloudstore CEO. "Personal computers took over the world because they put control over computing in the hands of the individual. Personal Clouds will do the same for cloud computing. The companies coming together in the Respect Network are building the components for a Personal Cloud market, and Cloudstore Technologies Corp. is looking forward to working with them to grow this market."

PRIVO is the first Founding Partner to bring expertise in the management of children's online identity. "With the average age of frequent Internet users continuing to fall, especially with access via mobile devices, we have a social responsibility to help drive improved online protection for minors. This relationship with the Respect Network will further advance PRIVO's Global K(id) Network to provide parents and children a safe, reliable solution for protecting personal information of underage Internet users," said Denise Tayloe, President and CEO of PRIVO.

Respect Network began the Founding Partner Program in the spring of 2012 to enlist companies committed to the strong personal data control protections of the award-winning Respect Trust Framework. Neustar, one of the world's leading trusted neutral network service providers, is the first Platinum Founding Partner. Swisscom, Switzerland's leading telecom provider as well as one of the most trusted brands in Europe, is a Gold Founding Partner. Other Founding Partners include Kynetx, The Customer's Voice, Project Danube, Gluu, Planetwork, Bitworld, Miicard, BioID, Virtrue, TrustCloud, Allfiled, OwnYourInfo, Edentiti, Mydex, Disconnect, Ctrl-Shift and The Searls Group.

In 2013, Respect Network will begin inviting select global brands to participate in this new coalition, enabling them to empower and connect directly with customers in a way that has never been possible before. For more information, please visit www.respectnetwork.com.

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year.
