Mirapoint Delivers Fifth Consecutive Profitable Quarter, Forecasts Strong Growth Worldwide for 2009

Continues Commitment to Delivering Cost-Effective, Secure, and Reliable Messaging Solutions With Lowest TCO in the Field

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - February 18, 2009) - Mirapoint, the secure messaging experts, today announced its fifth consecutive quarter of profitability and growth, exceeding its plan for the year. Additionally, the Company has added more than 200 new large enterprise and service provider customers worldwide this year, and is positioned for continued growth in a downturn economy through its partnerships and acquisitions.

Mirapoint's solutions deliver the lowest Total Cost of Ownership ("TCO") in the industry, which partially explains the company's success during this global economic decline.

"We believe that our message of TCO is more relevant than ever given the current market downturn. We have an opportunity to experience significant growth given the contraction in the enterprise, the focus on spending, how our low TCO supports the CIO today, and the need to deliver messaging solutions at a lower cost point," said Jeff Witous, CEO of Mirapoint.

Strategic Acquisition of Intradyn

Recently, the Company announced its acquisition of Intradyn, Inc., an archiving and compliance technology company headquartered in Eagan, Minnesota. The combined company now serves more than 2,200 customers -- including the distribution/OEM of more than 800 companies that trust Intradyn's archiving solutions -- making it a significant player in the archiving market. Mirapoint also gains more than 500 new direct customers through this acquisition, who can now leverage complementary products from Mirapoint.

Mirapoint's archiving customers may now choose from even more powerful solutions for meeting compliance regulations affecting businesses of all sizes. This expanded product line aligns with Mirapoint's strategy of strong support for Exchange, GroupWise, Lotus Domino, and other email servers. Mirapoint is well positioned with a complete range of solutions addressing customers' messaging, security, and archiving needs.

"We have already established ourselves as a world leader in the Enterprise email solution business with an all-in-one email solution in a box," said Witous. "Industry compliance requirements have increased the market's demand for bullet-proof archiving solutions, so we have acquired the best-in-the-business archiving company. Starting now, Mirapoint offers the leading variety of comprehensive e-mail solutions worldwide."

Collaborative Relationship with Notify Technology

Mirapoint and Notify Technology also announced a collaboration relationship that underscores Mirapoint's continued commitment to delivering a complete mobile strategy for email synchronization covering security, access and management for enterprises.

The combination of Notify Technology's NotifyLink Enterprise Mobility Solution with Mirapoint's secure messaging appliances delivers email, calendar, contacts and task information to BlackBerry devices. Using the NotifyLink Enterprise Mobility Solution allows an IT organization to maintain secure control of their business critical data through granular device management.

According to Witous, "This partnership highlights Mirapoint's commitment to providing secure, flexible and reliable mobility solutions for the growing mobile enterprise. With the iPhone adoption showing continued strong growth, we are providing our users with more flexibility by supporting this popular device."

Mirapoint's Mobile Access Strategy ensures that enterprise mobility receives the same level of security and reliability that Mirapoint offers for email and collaboration: security, ease of management, and dial-tone reliability. Mirapoint's unique appliance model also enables the company to provide messaging and collaboration for the widest array of devices.
