StarForce Technologies to open Asia-Pacific Office in Great China


The New StarForce Beijing Office will support the booming Asian software business

Moscow, December 17, 2003 - StarForce Technologies, the leading expert in copy protection technologies, announced today the opening of its Beijing Office to expand its software protection solutions in the Asia Pacific region.

The head of the StarForce Asian-Pacific office, Alexander Mamaev, will manage relationships with the company's partners and clients, and provide copy protection services to the software publishers, developers and distributors in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, The Philippines, Malaysia, Australia, Japan and others. The new business unit will not only serve as a hub for existing clients and new customers but will also provide technical assistance with local support staff.

StarForce copy protection technologies are designed to prevent unauthorized copying of PC games, educational and business software applications distributed on CD/DVD-ROM/CD-R.
Since 2001 StarForce Technologies has been supplying robust copy protection to major Asian software companies, such as OdinSoft, KingSoft, Softworld, SoftStar and others. StarForce copy protection systems have secured over 3 million CD-ROM/CD-R discs containing PC games and educational software throughout and around Asia.

StarForce Asian-Pacific regional manager, Alexander Mamaev, says: " Asian countries have recently been paying a lot of attention to the piracy issues due to the growth of the domestic entertainment software industry. StarForce was among the first copy protection companies to provide its services in Asia, to challenge software pirates and prove the effectiveness of its superior technology. That was the beginning of when we established very strong and successful business relationships in the region and that is why a move closer to our clients was the next logical step in StarForce's expansion. The professional Chinese- and English-speaking management team and customer support service will now be able to provide maximum assistance to the StarForce partners and customers in Asia." Alexander Mamaev also mentioned that all StarForce solutions, including the upcoming software activation system to be released in January, 2004, will be available for Asian-Pacific customers.

The StarForce Beijing office will be officially open for business on December 19; the ribbon cutting ceremony will be held on 18 December, in the Beijing Digital Skyscraper, ShumaDasha.
