K-12 School District Prevents Computer and Instant Messaging Abuse With Omni Manager Protecting Young Students

NASHUA, NH--(Marketwire - July 11, 2007) - QED Storage, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: GWOH), an innovative managed services provider for the information security market, announced that Pinconning Area Schools has implemented its flagship offering, Omni Manager. Omni Manager has been deployed on over 100 computers in the K-12 school district to enforce acceptable use policies and ensure ethical and legal utilization of network resources. Pinconning's IT staff will leverage features such as Internet filtering and monitoring, tracking and recording of instant messaging activity and software application usage, and real-time inventory of all hardware assets.

"With computers spread over five locations, it was becoming challenging to enforce our security policies and control inappropriate Internet and IM use," said Jay Bosworth, Technology Director for Pinconning Area Schools. "By implementing Omni Manager, I can now get visibility of my infrastructure. The information is ready to use, easy to understand, and accessible via web interface 24 hours, seven days a week. Omni Manager helps ensure a safe and productive learning environment by protecting our students from offensive and potentially illegal areas of the web."

"The explosion of Internet access privileges in K-12 schools, coupled with federal legislation such as the Children's Internet Protection Act, is driving the demand for preventive security technologies," said Tom Makmann, president and CEO, QED Storage. "The Omni Manager provides this growing market with the necessary tools to protect students and limit network resources to educational use."
