Fort Lee, NJ, December 1, 2005 - Whale today announced that it ranked 39th on the 2005 Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology companies in Europe, Middle East and Africa. Rankings are based on percentage revenue growth over five years from 2000-2004. Whale grew 2000% during this period.

Whale's CEO, Roger Pilc, credits Whale's technology and market leading Intelligent Application GatewayT solutions with the company's revenue growth over the past five years. Pilc said: "We are pleased to be recognized for our sustained revenue growth which is a result of our ability to provide enterprises around the world with best-of-breed technology that enables them to allow their business objectives to drive their access needs rather than security and technology limitations. With Whale's technology, enterprises are now increasing productivity by providing more users more access to more applications from anywhere."

"Attracting enough customers to attain such fast growth over five years makes a strong statement about the quality of a company's product and its leadership," said Eric Morgain, partner in charge of Deloitte's Technology Fast 500 EMEA program. "Whale has shown the right stuff for growth."

In addition to ranking on Deloitte's Technology Fast 500, Whale ranked fifth on the Israel Technology Fast 50, which is a ranking of the 50 fastest growing technology firms in Israel.


Fast 500 Selection and Qualifications
