ZyLAB Positioned in Research Firm's Magic Quadrant for Information Access Technology, 2006

E-Discovery Represents Potential Breakout Market for ZyLAB With Marquee Clients in Law Enforcement and Forensic Investigation

VIENNA, VA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 16, 2006 -- ZyLAB, an innovative developer of Information Access Solutions, today announced that Gartner, a leading technology research and advisory firm, positioned ZyLAB in the "Challengers" quadrant in its Magic Quadrant for Information Access Technology, 2006.*

According to the report, "This Magic Quadrant includes vendors with capabilities that go beyond enterprise search to encompass a collection of technologies, including: search; content classification, categorization and clustering; fact and entity extraction; taxonomy creation and management; information presentation to support analysis and understanding; and desktop search to address user-controlled repositories to locate and invoke documents, data, e-mail and intelligence."

The ZyIMAGE Information Access Platform is a complete XML-based system that provides a robust foundation for the archiving and long-term management of critical information, from digitized paper documents, to electronic files, to e-mail and attachments, to multimedia. The Information Access Platform's comprehensive core technology enables organizations to find, access, and organize specific data through a standard browser in a quick, easy and secure fashion. Users can add additional modules to create the exact, cost-effective solution they require for specific types of projects or business processes (including records management, workflow, e-discovery and e-disclosure, etc.).

"Recognizing that every organization has different information access requirements, we offer enterprise-wide solutions that can be rolled out in a modular fashion as they are needed," said Dr. Johannes Scholtes, President of ZyLAB. "Our ZyIMAGE product suite offers a full array of advanced and secure technologies for the public sector, investigative bodies, research-intensive companies, and businesses that are committed to ensuring adherence to compliance regulations and more efficient overall information management. As an emerging technology company, we are extremely pleased to be placed in the Challenger's Quadrant in this Magic Quadrant."

According to Gartner, "Vendors listed in the Challenger's Quadrant possess sufficient resources to effectively penetrate the information access technology market. Nevertheless, they typically lack the vision necessary to address all the information access opportunities. All of these vendors could emerge as Leaders in less than 24 months if they choose to invest in information access technology and do so adeptly."
