QED Connect Adds YMCA of Greater Syracuse to Rapidly Growing Customer Base

Omni Manager Provides Comprehensive Internet Security For Six YMCA Locations

NASHUA, NH--(Marketwire - October 31, 2007) - QED Connect, Inc., (PINKSHEETS: QEDC) an innovative software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider for the information security market, today announced the addition of YMCA of Greater Syracuse to its rapidly growing customer base. Omni Manager will be deployed on computers across six YMCA locations serving Central New York and surrounding areas. In addition to Omni Manager's asset management and Internet filtering, monitoring and reporting capabilities, the YMCA will also benefit from Kaspersky® 6.0 anti-virus software, a QED partner offering and one of PC World's 100 Best Products of 2007.

"We had security software from one of the major vendors in place and replaced it with Omni Manager because it offered much more features and value for the price," said Phil Kreuzer, Director of IT for YMCA of Greater Syracuse. "With Omni Manager, I now have complete visibility and control over our entire network. The reporting tool provides a level of detail that is absolutely staggering. I can pull up information on any computer or user in minutes, without having to travel to each of our locations. Our budget is limited as a nonprofit, but we are getting enterprise-level features and service with QED and Omni Manager, in addition to immeasurable time savings. We definitely plan to implement Omni Manager on more computers."
