Blackbird Group, Inc
42 West 24th Street
New York,, NY, 10010

Press release date: December 11, 2006

Provides rapid online recovery and change control for critical identity management services

NEW YORK, Dec. 11 -- Blackbird Group today announced the release of DeTroubler 3, a rapid online backup and recovery solution for both Novell eDirectory and Microsoft Active Directory. DeTroubler minimizes the productivity and revenue losses that result from a corrupted or failed directory service by bringing it back online in a matter of minutes.

DeTroubler streamlines the backup and recovery process for directory services, saving organizations hours, even days in the recovery process. It eliminates the need for IT groups to perform time-consuming, manual tasks like recreating links between objects or re-entering encrypted information. DeTroubler offers granular recovery options, whereby specific users and their attributes can be quickly restored. As a result, recovery is a more transparent process with minimal impact to the end users.

As the industry's first integrated disaster recovery solution for both Novell and Microsoft's directory services, DeTroubler enables IT organizations to more easily and effectively manage their mixed directory environments.

"Enterprise organizations are choosing to leverage the strengths of both eDirectory and Active Directory," said Christian Ehrenthal, CEO at Blackbird. "And as the industry moves toward increased interoperability -- reflected most recently in the Novell and Microsoft partnership agreement -- it's important that management tools follow suit. As an integrated solution for both directory platforms, DeTroubler significantly reduces the cost and complexity associated with managing disaster recovery and change control in mixed environments."

"Novell is committed to equipping our customers with best of breed tools to manage their eDirectory deployments," said Rick Killpack, eDirectory Product Manager at Novell. "eDirectory is a cornerstone of Novell's identity and security management solutions. Having a quick and easy directory backup and recovery solution is critical for any organization using eDirectory. Blackbird's DeTroubler makes a great addition to eDirectory's backup solutions."

DeTroubler's key features include: o Rapidly restores the entire directory tree o Restores individual objects, attributes, trustees and permissions including all links and references o Easy-to-use graphical interface o Restores encrypted information such as end user passwords o Automates directory backups to a choice of either open-source or commercial SQL Servers
