QED Connect Expands Contract With Living Classrooms Foundation's Carmelo Anthony Youth Development Center

Educational Organization Successfully Secures Internet Use With Omni Manager

NASHUA, NH--(Marketwire - January 14, 2008) - QED Connect, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: QEDC), an innovative software-as-a-service provider for the information security market, announced it has expanded its existing contract with the Living Classrooms Foundation, a leading Maryland-based nonprofit. QED's flagship Omni Manager was first deployed earlier this year on computers in the organization's Carmelo Anthony Youth Development Center, a 22,000 square foot facility partially funded by the NBA star to provide educational and social programs for community youth. Omni Manager has now been installed on the remainder of the Center's computers to provide comprehensive Internet filtering, monitoring and reporting capabilities.

"The Internet is an amazing educational resource, but without the appropriate security measures, it can turn into a very dangerous place," said Mike Meakes, Director of IT for the Living Classrooms Foundation. "Omni Manager has really delivered on its value proposition, successfully protecting our children from inappropriate and potentially harmful web sites. Our users can safely surf the Internet at any time, while our staff maintains complete visibility and control over computer activity. We are very pleased to add Omni Manager licenses for all computers in the Carmelo Anthony Youth Center."
