Leading Newspaper Leverages Omni Manager for Increased Business Productivity and Computer Security

NASHUA, NH--(Marketwire - March 19, 2008) - QED Connect, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: QEDC), an innovative software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider for the information security market, today announced that the Washington DC Examiner, a leading daily newspaper and part of The Examiner group of publications, is utilizing its flagship Omni Manager product for Internet visibility, management and control. Omni Manager provides the Examiner with tools and technologies to centrally monitor employee activity and enforce acceptable use policies on over 250 of the newspaper's computer terminals.

"We have been very impressed with Omni Manager's capabilities," said Mark Rendle, director of IT operations for the Examiner. "It has enabled us to centrally create, manage and enforce organizational security and use policies for our PCs from one web-based console. Omni Manager has increased business productivity by reducing the amount of time people spend surfing non-work related Internet sites such as shopping or music, which is a critical issue for any business. An innovative feature also enables us to keep track of any unauthorized software applications being downloaded onto the computers, which is both a productivity and security concern."

Rendle continued, "The Examiner is a rapidly growing company. As part of our model, we're aiming to reduce our IT costs by centralizing operations. Software-as-a-service is ideal because it is completely hosted and self-running. We don't have to dedicate IT staff to checking on hardware problems or installing and updating software. The efficiencies and time savings Omni Manager creates over traditional packaged software is very significant."

In other news, QED Connect is continuing to gain traction in the small to medium-sized (SMB) business market with recently announced new customers in the manufacturing, distribution, healthcare and education sectors. The Company is realizing revenue growth, with an expected 50% increase this quarter over 4th quarter of 2007.
