QED Connect's Chairman and CEO Tom Makmann to Appear on Market News First Radio

Success of Omni Manager Sparks Broad Interest

NASHUA, NH--(Marketwire - September 17, 2007) - QED Connect, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: QEDC), an innovative Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider for the information security market, announced that Chairman and CEO Tom Makmann will appear on Market News First Radio on Tuesday, September 18, 2007 at noon EDT. Following an appearance on The Big Biz Show (http://archives.warpradio.com/btr/bigbizshow//091217.mp3), Mr. Makmann will appear on Market News First to brief its listening audience on Omni Manager, its flagship security software solution.

"Omni Manager picks up where many other security software offerings leave off," said Tom Makmann, Chairman and CEO of QED Connect, Inc. "The workplace has evolved. More and more people work in wireless environments, travel, and work from home, requiring companies to open up their networks. This has created issues in securing networks and IT assets while controlling and monitoring employee productivity. The solutions of the past are limited or have failed to keep them protected."

Makmann added, "Omni Manager is the Security-as-a-Service (SaaS) program that has adapted to the growing and changing needs of small to medium-sized businesses as well as corporate America. We are joining the ranks of America's pioneering companies -- providing new and innovative products, and taking it a step further, making them affordable for a mass market."

Omni Manager is a Software-as-a-Service offering that provides 24x7 visibility, management and control of geographically dispersed, hardwired and wireless networks, workers and IT assets. It unites the critical security applications of policy management and enforcement, Internet and email filtering and reporting, anti-virus, instant messaging control, and application usage monitoring into one web-based solution that is deployable in real-time to all computers and laptops, regardless of their physical or geographic location. Unlike most security solutions, Omni Manager's most innovative feature is that it works whether or not employees are logged onto the corporate VPN (virtual private network), addressing the challenge of employees that stay off the network to avoid being tracked.
