QED Connect Wins Contract With Easter Seals Greater Washington-Baltimore Region

Leading Nonprofit Secures Its Computers With Omni Manager

NASHUA, NH--(Marketwire - November 26, 2007) - QED Connect, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: QEDC), an innovative software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider for the information security market, continues to gain market share for Omni Manager with a new contract with Easter Seals Greater Washington-Baltimore Region, one of the world's leading nonprofit organizations. Omni Manager's powerful Internet filtering, monitoring and reporting capabilities will assist Easter Seals in ensuring appropriate and secure use of its computer centers.

"We provide computers as a service to help people with employment searches," said Jeff Curry, IT Director of Easter Seals Greater Washington-Baltimore Region. "People were coming in and surfing inappropriate web sites, wasting our resources and opening up our network to threats such as spy ware and viruses. Before Omni Manager, we didn't have any Internet blocking or monitoring technologies in place, which meant I was looking over people's shoulders. Omni Manager provides detailed reporting on the sites people are visiting or attempting to visit, and enables me to block if necessary. We now feel confident in the security of our network, and the improved computer use we can provide to people using our services."

"Omni Manager provides budget-conscious organizations like Easter Seals with access to high end Internet control technologies," said Tom Makmann, Chairman and CEO of QED Connect. "Until now, cost, manpower and time have prevented many companies outside the Fortune 500 from acquiring essential security applications. Omni Manager bundles a multitude of applications into one hosted package and takes care of the software management, reducing both capital and operating expenses for any organization."
