KMWorld Names Kazeon 'Company That Matters in Knowledge Management'

Industry Leader Recognized for Next Generation Enterprise Search Technology Addressing Challenges in Legal Discovery, Compliance, and Data Privacy

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 22, 2007 -- Kazeon, the recognized leader in unstructured information management, was named to KMWorld magazine's list of 100 Companies that Matter in Knowledge Management this morning. Building upon its Search the Enterprise™ vision, Kazeon enables organizations to find, manage, and secure information to reduce risk and drive out costs. In the past year, Kazeon unveiled strategic technology partnerships with Google and Oracle along with introducing a new product line to address specific challenges in legal discovery, compliance and data privacy. The company's rapid expansion and growth has been fueled by the proliferation of unstructured data residing on corporate servers as well as a steady stream of new legislation and regulations dictating how organizations manage and store their information.

"This distinction from KMWorld reinforces our continued leadership in unstructured information management," noted Michael Marchi, vice-president of solution marketing for Kazeon. "Our ability to index and search the enterprise on a massive scale differentiates us from the rest of the pack. With environments today containing hundreds-of-millions of documents and email messages, for the first time, legal, security, and IT staffs can search and automate the manual process of tagging, copying, and safely securing information assets across the enterprise."

"If there is a single trait shared by the companies on our list, it is their determination to treat their entire constituency chain, from top to bottom, with respect and without hubris," said Hugh McKellar, executive editor of KMWorld. "Clearly, attitude alone doesn't warrant inclusion on the list, attitude must be accompanied by elegance in the design and implementation of their software."

Today's recognition from KMWorld is the latest Kazeon accolade in a series of industry awards the company has received in the past year, including CRN's Top 100 Emerging Technology Company, Storage Magazine's Product of the Year, Gartner Group's "Cool Vendor," Infostor's Most Innovative Product, and Network World's Top 10 Data Management Companies to Watch.
