COVID Resistance Mobile App Recognized for Exceptional Innovation

NEWTOWN, PA – AUG. 27, 2020 – EPAM Systems, Inc. (NYSE: EPAM), a leading global provider of digital platform engineering and software development services, announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, and its TMC Labs product review division, named EPAM's COVID Resistance App as a 2020 Pandemic Tech Innovation Award winner.

The COVID Resistance mobile app is a customizable, open-source solution that offers users an anonymous digital health identity, real-time tracking, and exposure notifications. The GDPR- and HIPAA-compliant app uses Bluetooth tokenized exchanges between anonymous users, alerting each user if they are at risk of COVID-19 transmission based on their proximity with other at-risk or infected users.

"We are honored by this recognition from TMC for our efforts to combat this global pandemic," said Balazs Fejes, Co-Head of Global Business, EVP at EPAM Systems. "COVID-19 is a difficult virus to track, with many regions challenged by a lack of reliable testing or unclear guidance. We hope that the quick response from our skillful team enables users to slow the spread of the virus while returning to their daily lives with the proper precautions."

The Pandemic Tech Innovation Awards will recognize hardware, software, devices/peripherals, applications and services that help society and business function effectively in the face of challenges caused by Pandemics.

"EPAM has displayed its commitment to quality and innovation in the development of their tech solutions contributing to managing and overcoming pandemic outbreaks," said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. "I look forward to more innovation from EPAM and their continued effort toward improving the future of the current challenges faced by the most recent Pandemic."
