December 3 - PSMI Opening Office in Kansas
PrimeSource Mortgage, Inc. (PSMI), a subsidiary of PSM Holdings, Inc. (OTC: PSMH), continues to open branches Nationwide. PSMI recently announced the opening of an independently owned and operated PrimeSource Mortgage (PSM) office in Overland Park, Kansas. Phillip Johnson, most recently operated within a large net-branch operation in the area, is the owner and operator of this new PSM branch. Johnson has plans in place for further expansion into Kansas City, Missouri.
Johnson, with over 30 years of mortgage experience, is well qualified to head up this mortgage-lending office. Johnson began his career with Liberty Mutual Insurance Company where he "learned the value of personal property". Later, Johnson began to focus on Life, Health, and Investments with Mutual of New York. Phillip Johnson was awarded the prestigious Kansas City Chamber of Commerce customer service award. Johnson has had tremendous success in growing his business, gaining knowledge and has made Overland Park his home base for his opening of a PrimeSource Mortgage office.
Johnson believes there are many advantages to being a part of the PrimeSource family. Johnson states, "I am able to realize my life dream of helping people achieve and realize their dreams of financial independence and home ownership. With backing of a larger company with programs to put me above the competition, such as the NWBO platforms and PushMX Software, I am able to offer outstanding service and great products. I appreciate that PSMI is also licensed in 24 states which expands my own outreach."
Incorporated in 1991 in Texas, PrimeSource Mortgage, Inc. quickly became a leading mortgage company in the Southwest and is currently licensed in 24 states. One reason for the growth and success of this company is its commitment to personalized customer service embodied in the motto: We Walk You Home.

PSM Holdings, Inc., the parent company, is now a publicly traded company; over-the-counter (OTC) shares became available in October 2005. Ron Hanna, Chairman of the Board, said, "We are excited about this because it offers our customers and staff the opportunity to own a part of our company."

December 4 - QSGI Announces Onsite Data Security Services Contract with Major Financial Institution
QSGI, Inc. (OTCBB: QSGI), the only provider of a full suite of information technology services to help corporations better manage hardware assets, maintenance expenses, and ensure best practices for data security and regulatory compliance, announced it has entered into an agreement to provide onsite data security and compliance services to one of the world’s largest investment banking and retail brokerage firms. QSGI will perform onsite audit, erasure and other security services within this client’s North American data centers.
Marc Sherman, chairman and chief executive officer, commented, “Hard drives under warranty that begin to fail must be fully erased before returning the equipment to the manufacturer in order to preserve sensitive data that may be stored on the hard drive. Shredding or otherwise discarding these failed drives is a costly proposition that can cost the owner upwards of $2,000 per drive. As illustrated by this latest contract, the value of QSGI’s onsite data security and compliance services to the client are substantial. By using QSGI’s services, the end user gets the most secure process in the industry and also saves a significant amount of money annually. Our process allows for the audit, erasure and comprehensive reporting for all hard drives associated with enterprise storage hardware including those within the SANs unit, loose, working or failed. We are seeing the adoption of our services taking hold because of the clear value proposition that we offer and we are very pleased to have signed on this marquee financial institution.”
Mr. Sherman continued, “Initially, we will provide our services on-site using our server suitcase solution at multiple data centers. We will utilize a process that QSGI introduced earlier this year for audit and erasure designed specifically for enterprise storage systems, whereby we can quickly audit and erase tens or hundreds of drives in enterprise storage arrays from major OEMs, including EMC, HP, Hitachi, Dell, Sun and IBM. This volume of work can be done as fast as a single drive. We can achieve sanitizing speeds of 1 terabyte of data in only 15 minutes while providing data centers complete data security and regulatory compliance at their facilities. Our ability to do the work on-site at our clients’ premises eliminates the high risk of data breaches associated with shipping computer equipment off-site.”
Mr. Sherman concluded, “Besides the obvious advantages of QSGI’s audit and erasure capabilities, our process enables our clients to recapture value from their equipment upon re-sale. This is because we do not destroy the systems as is often the case when companies choose to scrap their hard drives and hardware at the end of the life cycle or when equipment comes off lease. As more and more companies seek to avoid the risk of security breaches and to save money in the process, QSGI is becoming the “go to” provider of these services for a growing number of entities, as is evidenced by our expanding customer base of Fortune 1000 clients.”
