New On-Demand Email Management Portal, Aggressive Channel Strategy Position LiveOffice for Rapid Growth

SaaS Email Archiving Service Enables Businesses of All Sizes to Maintain Complete Control of Email, While Unloading the Maintenance Burden

TORRANCE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 9, 2007 -- LiveOffice Corporation's Managed Messaging Services, the leading provider of on-demand messaging security, archiving and compliance solutions, today introduced its Sentinel portal, a web-based administration console that gives organizations fingertip-access to search and retrieve (eDiscovery) archived messages, while providing real-time dashboard views of inbound threats, email volumes and storage utilization. The company also unveiled an aggressive channel strategy that positions LiveOffice for rapid growth during the next 36 months.

"We are the leading message archiving service in the financial services industry -- which today represents most of our revenue. With our enhanced email management solutions now available to all businesses, we anticipate that by 2010 more than 50 percent of our revenues will be derived from verticals outside financial services. This new strategy positions us for significant growth during the next 24 to 36 months," said Matt Smith, president of LiveOffice. "As an example of what we've accomplished in just the first quarter of this year, our partnership with Secure Computing has exponentially expanded the reach of our sales force. In total, we estimate that these efforts will lead us to a 50 percent year-over-year growth in revenue from now through 2010."

LiveOffice's new client portal acts as mission control for the Sentinel platform, putting administrators just a few clicks away from real-time, graphical views of their entire organization's email activities, from threat levels to archive usage and much more. The portal also provides administrators with advanced reporting capabilities, enabling them to instantly create comprehensive snapshots of usage statistics categorized by day, week or month.

"We're using Web 2.0 technology to provide our clients with a real-time, crystal clear view of their organization's email activity at any given second," said Alan Akahoshi, LiveOffice's product manager. "Sentinel combines the best of both worlds by giving administrators ultimate control over their threat levels and storage utilization, while leaving the hardware management and maintenance headaches to a trusted service provider like LiveOffice."

"In the past, businesses grappled with the challenge of moving to a software as a service (SaaS) model for email management because of concerns over giving up control over the company's most critical communication tool," said Michael Osterman, president of Osterman Research. "With the launch of the Sentinel client portal, LiveOffice has alleviated the anxiety often associated with outsourcing email management activities and presented companies with an attractive option for threat protection, archiving, encryption and compliance in a single, integrated platform."

The release of the Sentinel client portal coincides with the launch of LiveOffice's aggressive 2007 channel partner initiative. The program's components include expansion of the company's domestic sales force, and an associate and value-added reseller (VAR) program that includes attractive partner pricing incentives for organizations looking to expand their messaging capabilities.

With deep roots in the financial services sector, LiveOffice already securely manages millions of messages every day for the nation's largest and most respected companies. LiveOffice's Sentinel platform leverages the company's proven track record in message archiving and streamlines all essential email management activities into a single managed service offering. All services are available as standalone solutions and include:

--  Protection from inbound messaging threats such as spam, virus and
    phishing attacks
--  Advanced search and retrieval features that enable administrators to
    find one or multiple digitally archived messages in just seconds, whether
    for eDiscovery requests or audits
--  Message encryption to ensure that sensitive information isn't
    intercepted as it travels over the internet to the intended recipient
--  Compliance and policy management capabilities that help organizations
    ensure employees are adhering to regulatory and/or internal guidelines
    regarding appropriate email and instant message content
