AGOURA HILLS, CA, March 5, 2008 — Interthinx®, Inc., the leading provider of proven risk mitigation, mortgage fraud prevention and regulatory compliance tools for the mortgage industry, has successfully integrated its validated loan-level fraud detection system and automated regulatory compliance solution with INTEGRA Software Systems. Due to customer demand, INTEGRA has selected FraudGUARD® and PredProtectSM to embed into its Destiny LOS (Loan Origination System) and its next generation EPIC LOS. INTEGRA partners with mortgage lending clients to provide each of them a competitive advantage with an LOS tailored to their specific needs and is committed to providing its customers with highly configurable mortgage technology solutions. As a result of this integration, loans originated through Destiny and EPIC platforms can be seamlessly submitted to FraudGUARD for risk/fraud assessment and to PredProtect for predatory lending and other regulatory compliance validations within seconds.

“Our strategic alliance with Interthinx provides INTEGRA customers another ideal interface that expands the scope and availability of leading industry third party solutions,” said Jerry Pratt, president of INTEGRA. “We’re proud to provide our customers innovative and proven technology from Interthinx designed to protect lenders and drastically reduce cost during this time of significant correction.”

“The ‘easy access’ interface from Destiny compiles mortgage loan application data and directly communicates with the Interthinx systems, so there is no ‘re-keying’ of data,” stated Rick Allen, senior vice president of INTEGRA “Interthinx securely and instantly analyzes loan information for risk exposure and APR, predatory lending and other compliance violations. Once analysis is complete, Destiny receives and conveniently displays the Interthinx reports which streamlines workflow and saves my company valuable time in a market where cost reduction and quality matter more than ever.”

“We are entering an unprecedented era where Congress is preparing to tighten already tough lending standards and loan quality is no longer optional,” continued Roger Fendelman, Esq., vice president of compliance for Interthinx. “Lenders and investors are facing the disastrous effects of fraud and compliance failures as foreclosures skyrocket and balance sheets dip into the red. As the industry struggles to come up with efficient, cost-effective ways to manage these risks, Interthinx remains the only third party service provider to offer in-house fraud and compliance solutions that, when used together, provide proven protection against fraudulent loans and accusations of predatory lending abuse.”
