Perth, Aug 22, 2006 AEST (ABN Newswire) - Synergy Equities Group Limited (ASX: SYG), a diversified Internet technology systems group, is delighted to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary Data‑inCrypt Pty Ltd ("Data‑inCrypt") has entered into a corporate partnership with Surf Life Saving Australia ("SLSA"), a great Australian icon.
Through the corporate partnership, Data‑inCrypt will provide its "online data backup and recovery service", which will form an integral component of SLSA's IT disaster recovery plans in each State and the Northern Territory.
SYNERGY Managing Director Ronald Moir said the SLSA corporate partnership was an important community and business initiative.
"Surf Life Saving is a fantastic Australian community service with which we are proud to be associated. Like Data‑inCrypt, Surf Lifesaving is there to save lives and minimise disasters. We are proud to commit on a pro-bono basis to assist SLSA in its IT disaster recovery plans.
We expect our involvement will generate additional brand awareness for SYNERGY and Data‑inCrypt and ultimately build value for our shareholders.
In any event SYNERGY's shareholder base is predominantly Australian and we believe it is important as corporate citizens in our community that we support a not-for-profit organisation - Surf Life Saving - that contributes so much to the fabric of our community".
Surf Life Saving WA Chief Executive Officer Paul Andrew said the partnership with Data‑inCrypt will provide data backup for all laptops and servers in each State and the Northern Territory.
"We are grateful to Data‑inCrypt for providing this much needed service to SLSA. The possibility of losing critical computer data is always a concern and having a common data disaster recovery service for all SLSA bodies nationwide provides great peace of mind", Mr Andrew said.
