QED Connect Announces Powerful Archiving Service for E-Mail Management and Regulatory Compliance

E-Mail Archiving Technology Contributes to Data Protection and Sarbanes-Oxley Compliance

NASHUA, NH--(Marketwire - May 20, 2008) - QED Connect, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: QEDC), an innovative software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider for the information security market, today introduced an e-mail archiving service, the first offering from its recently announced partnership with MessageLabs. The QED Connect e-mail archiving service powered by MessageLabs is a cost-effective solution for mailbox management and e-discovery. It is especially relevant to companies that operate under legal discovery and regulatory compliance guidelines such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), legislation stating that all business records, including electronic records and electronic messages, must be saved for a minimum of five years.

"A significant portion of company data resides in e-mail, making efficient e-mail management imperative," said Tom Makmann, Chairman of QED Connect. "The price point and in-house IT resources associated with deploying an e-mail archiving system have made it prohibitive for many companies. Expanding the range of QED's managed services to include e-mail archiving is a logical step that builds upon our model of making critical applications accessible outside the enterprise sector. This service safely archives every internal and external e-mail and provides on-demand access to e-mails that need to be located -- all while ensuring 100% privacy and complete data security."
