QED Connect Wins Three-Year Contract With Marrakech, Inc.

QED Continues to Gain Market Share in Nonprofit Sector With Cost-Effective Managed Information Security Services

NASHUA, NH--(Marketwire - September 6, 2007) - QED Connect, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: QEDC), an innovative managed services provider for the information security market, has won a three-year contract with Connecticut-based Marrakech, Inc., a private nonprofit organization that provides residential, educational, and job placement services to people with disabilities. The Omni Manager suite of hosted services provides Marrakech with a solution for centrally managing and enforcing policy on 200 computers located across 30 locations, in addition to asset tracking, and Internet filtering and monitoring.

"We were concerned about our ability to manage employee Internet use and prevent network security breaches across 30 sites statewide," said Scott Butler, IT Manager for Marrakech, Inc. "Omni Manager was the only solution we found that was feasible to administer on all our computers without requiring manpower at each site. It enables me to centrally manage and enforce organizational security policies on systems at different locations with different connections that aren't on the same network. We've been very pleased with the visibility it's given us into employee production."

Omni Manager combines critical security functions into a plug and play, 'all in one' hosted service that is delivered over the Internet. There is no equipment to install, and no additional software or maintenance required. Omni Manager is up and running in minutes, so users can immediately begin monitoring and enforcing organizational security and acceptable use policies in real time. Additional applications include Internet filtering and monitoring, IM and P2P control, anti-virus and comprehensive reporting.
