DLT Solutions to Promote Public Sector Sales of VeriSign Products and Services through General Services Administration

Mountain View, CA - (May 30, 2002) - VeriSign, Inc. (Nasdaq:VRSN), the leading provider of digital trust services and DLT Solutions, a premier government solutions provider, announced today that VeriSign's digital trust services will be made available through DLT Solutions' GSA (General Services Administration) Schedule (#GS-35F-4543G).

The collaboration between VeriSign and DLT Solutions enables VeriSign to offer several of its digital trust services, including its Access Management Services, Digital Brand Management Services, and its Network & Security Services through DLT Solutions' customer base. As part of the agreement, DLT Solutions Government representatives will work with VeriSign?s Public Sector group to sell and market VeriSign's services to all federal, state, and local government agencies.

GSA schedules are multiple award contracts established by the U.S. government to give Federal agencies and state and local governments that utilize the schedules a commercial-like buying vehicle of pre-approved products and services offered at commercial discounts. Schedule contracts provide vendors of products and services with simplified negotiation and contract procedures and give government customers the benefit of most favored customer pricing.

"VeriSign's solutions including its Managed PKI service, digital certificates and digital signatures, already provide many government agencies with the tools they need to deliver trusted services to agency employees, contractors, and citizens," said Barry Leffew, VeriSign's vice president of public sector group. "Our collaboration with DLT Solutions enables us to offer these services more effectively to a number of diverse agencies and departments through the GSA schedule."

VeriSign's digital trust services are designed to secure intranet, extranet, virtual private network (VPN), and e-commerce applications by providing maximum flexibility, performance, and scalability with the highest availability and security.

"We're pleased to announce our collaboration with VeriSign to provide their products and services to our government customers to secure information and communications between the government and its constituents," said Craig P. Abod, president of DLT Solutions. "Customers ordering VeriSign?s products and services will benefit from DLT Solutions' account management expertise and the simplified ordering process that the GSA schedule provides."

A broad range of Government customers such as the Securities and Exchange Commission and the U.S. Department of Labor to the state governments of New Jersey and Pennsylvania are currently using VeriSign's digital trust services to protect information and ensure safe online communications between citizens and government.

DLT's GSA schedule provides a means for government agencies large and small to take advantage of the authentication and encryption technologies within the market leading Network & Security Services available from VeriSign, and so essential in the post-September 11 environment.
