Waterloo, ON - November 11, 2002: MKS Inc. (MKS) (TSE:MKX), a leading provider of tools to automate, secure, manage and control the software development process today announced that sentitO Networks has chosen MKS Source Integrity® Enterprise and MKS Integrity Manager™ for its enterprise software configuration management (SCM) needs.

sentitO Networks addresses the needs of global service providers who are building profitable, new access and edge network infrastructures. sentitO is delivering the New End Office™ (NEO), a new converged switching and services platform, to global communications service providers.

sentitO sought an enterprise-wide SCM solution to replace its existing freeware SCM toolset and to gain real-time collaboration between its two development locations in Chelmsford, MA and Rockville, Maryland. It chose the MKS solution following an evaluation of a number of leading SCM vendors.

In particular, sentitO liked MKS's innovative new MKS Federated Server™ architecture, a real time development alternative to archive replication. This architecture will enable real-time collaboration for geographically distributed teams, while minimizing costly software conflict resolution activities. sentitO also selected MKS Source Integrity Enterprise and MKS Integrity Manager for their ease of configuration, intuitive user interface, enterprise-level security, and the MKS technology's ability to easily be adapted into sentitO's existing process and procedures.

"We evaluated the SCM toolsets of a number of vendors, including the other market leading providers that our developers had used in the past. However, MKS best enabled us to meet our goal of real-time, geographically distributed development. In our opinion, MKS has the most logical and technologically advanced solution, not to mention the best overall value," says Dan Coyne, Principal Scientist at sentitO Networks.
