Kazeon Named One of KMWorld's 100 Companies That Matter in Knowledge Management

eDiscovery Industry Leader Honored for 2nd Consecutive Year

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - March 5, 2008) - Kazeon Systems, Inc., a leading provider of intelligent eDiscovery solutions, today announced that it has been named one of KMWorld's 100 Companies that Matter in Knowledge Management for 2008.

This list was compiled through a collaborative effort between knowledge management practitioners, theorists, analysts, vendors and their customers and colleagues. This is the eighth year of the list and the second year in a row Kazeon has been selected for inclusion.

"We have long held that the true essence of knowledge management is an attitude, a single-minded commitment to improvement," said Hugh McKellar, editor in chief of KMWorld. "And companies on our list simply must emphasize an abiding determination to serve their most important constituency: their customers. They must also show agile innovation combined with a full understanding of the forces that affect, and will affect, their customers."

"This distinction from KMWorld is a true testament to Kazeon's continued leadership in the eDiscovery market and we are honored to be included on the list again this year," said Steven d'Alencon, Kazeon Vice President of Product Marketing. "This listing validates our approach of providing an integrated, scalable enterprise software solution for solving both reactive and proactive customer eDiscovery challenges."

Kazeon's recognition from KMWorld is the latest addition to a series of industry awards and recognition the company has received in the recent past. Kazeon was named as a '2008 Hot Company' at the Technosium 2008 Executive Summit. The company was also one of only five vendors to appear in both recent Gartner Group reports, the "MarketScope for E-Discovery and Litigation Support Vendors, 2007" and the "Magic Quadrant for Information Access Technology, 2007."

Kazeon recently introduced version 3 of the Information Server and Information Center product lines. Kazeon version 3 delivers an industry-leading cost per gigabyte of $4.30 to process ESI in preparation for eDiscovery matters and the industry's highest performance for full content indexing at 47MB/sec. Kazeon's performance re-writes the industry standard of $1500-$2000 per gigabyte of current solutions.

Version 3 contains several industry firsts, including targeted Single Step Collection, native connectivity to live Microsoft Exchange servers, integrated eMail threading for first-pass review and analysis, and federated searching, reporting and management for distributed enterprises. Kazeon's Information Server has been specifically designed to enable companies to significantly shorten the time it takes to identify, collect, process and analyze electronically stored information (files and eMail), thereby curtailing unnecessary eDiscovery costs. Kazeon's version 3 capabilities enable companies in every industry sector to use the Information Server to lower everyday eDiscovery management costs by up to 80 percent.
