Lifeboat to Distribute Quest Software's ScriptLogic Product Suite to Global Solution Provider Network

Security and Administration Tools Become Part of Lifeboat's Exclusive Virtualization and Security World View Best-of-Breed Software Portfolios

SHREWSBURY, NJ--(Marketwire - March 10, 2008) - Lifeboat Distribution, an international specialty software distributor for virtualization and other technically sophisticated products, today announced its agreement with Quest Software to distribute the ScriptLogic suite of network administration software for Microsoft Windows-based networks through its global network of resellers and solution providers. ScriptLogic is a wholly owned subsidiary of Quest Software. This agreement builds on an existing distribution partnership covering Quest Software's extensive portfolio of tools for application, database, and Microsoft Windows management.

ScriptLogic security and administration tools become part of Lifeboat's exclusive Virtualization and Security World Views -- best-of-breed software portfolios designed to fulfill the solution needs of resellers and their end customers in those areas. Quest is already well represented in these World Views, with Vintela Authentication Services and the disaster recovery and virtual infrastructure management products of Quest subsidiary Vizioncore.

"With the growing complexity of enterprise systems and networks, infrastructure management is a critical IT concern for customers and thus a significant service opportunity for our solution providers," said Dan Jamieson, vice president and general manager, Lifeboat Distribution. "We're pleased to add ScriptLogic to the line-up of great Quest Software products in our Virtualization and Security World Views."

"Consultation, problem solving, joint ownership have been key characteristics of our great relationship with Lifeboat Distribution to-date," said Mike Ragusa, VP Channels and Alliances, Quest Software. "We expect more of the same, as we bring the ScriptLogic suite under the Quest channel umbrella and deliver compelling business opportunity for our resellers and the best possible solutions for their end-user customers."
