August 18, 2004

Boston, MA. August 18, 2004 - White Mountains Re Group, Ltd., a worldwide reinsurance leader, announced today the launch of its new global website www.wtmre.com developed by Bridgeline Software, Inc. The redesign will include links to Sirius America Insurance Company acquired by White Mountains in April 2004. Other White Mountains Re affiliates, including Folksamerica Re, will also have their websites redesigned and content-managed through Bridgeline's proprietary Content Management System, netEDITOR-pro. The netEDITOR-pro software will enable White Mountains Re to easily update and manage websites for its numerous subsidiaries on a national and international level.

With netEDITOR-pro, non-technical users are empowered to maintain relevant web content while preserving the common look and feel across the sites. In addition netEDITOR-pro provides other advanced features such as enhanced workflow options, multi-site content publishing, group security, and LDAP and active directory support. As an Application Integration Platform, netEDITOR-pro enables any software developer to easily integrate web content management with other proprietary databases and applications under a single unified framework.

“In the months previous to our decision to move forward with Bridgeline, White Mountains investigated many Content Management Systems and design firms. We decided to go with Bridgeline because of their expertise in both design and content management,” said Phillip Marzullo, CIO, Folksamerica Reinsurance Corp. “We are extremely happy with the new look and feel to White Mountains Re corporate site and plan on carrying that design through to our many subsidiary sites in the US and Europe. Bridgeline's CMS makes it easy for users in all of our subsidiaries to update content and keep our corporate message consistent and up-to-date.”
