Randy Hagin Named to Head Three-Pronged RocketStream Strategic Sales Program

Software Industry Veteran to Lead Online, Direct and Channel Sales Program as Senior VP of Sales

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - March 2, 2009) - RocketStream, Inc., a subsidiary of Voyant International Corporation (OTCBB: VOYT) and a developer of technologies and solutions to accelerate digital content delivery over IP networks, today announced that twenty-year software industry veteran Randy Hagin has joined RocketStream as its senior vice president of sales. In this capacity, Mr. Hagin will be responsible for the implementation of a three-pronged sales strategy, coordinating RocketStream's new online, direct, and channel sales capabilities.

The RocketStream™ file transfer acceleration suite allows business customers to transfer files over IP networks up to 200 times faster than ordinary file transfer protocol (FTP). The company also produces the RocketConnect™ Internet access accelerator, which can improve the effective bandwidth of last-mile dial-up, broadband wireline (DSL, cable, or fiber) wireless connections by as much as a factor of 10.

Mr. Hagin has an extensive background working with Fortune 400 companies in the areas of sales, technology and strategic partnerships. He has over twenty years of experience in software sales, including key executive sales positions at Connectix/Microsoft and Aldus/Adobe. His responsibilities at RocketStream include spearheading OEM/business development activities, as well as managing the company's direct and channel sales teams assigned to territories spanning Europe, the Pacific Rim, and North America. RocketStream is currently used by customers on six continents.

Mr. Hagin brings with him a team of sales professionals who have previously represented such software powerhouses as Aldus and Apple. The team reporting to Mr. Hagin will include Steve Lett in Chicago, who will take charge of direct sales functions, and Ross Bickham, based in Dallas, who will lead RocketStream's value-added reseller (VAR) and distribution channel sales program.

"Randy is a top-notch software sales professional with an impressive track record," said Jay Elliot, RocketStream's president. "I have worked with Randy before, and I've always been amazed at how swiftly he produces excellent results. In the short time since he arrived at RocketStream, he has already instituted our new online store with Digital River, and he is rounding out our sales program by revamping our direct and channel sales infrastructures. Our goal is for RocketStream to achieve multi-million-dollar sales in 2009, and I am very pleased to have Randy and his team on board to implement this plan."

"There is a growing feeling of excitement surrounding RocketStream's products in the marketplace, not only in the U.S. but around the world, and I am proud to be part of RocketStream," said Mr. Hagin. "The products are already in place, and by executing on our three-pronged strategy of online, direct, and channel sales, I am confident that this top-notch sales team will meet or exceed RocketStream's sales goals for 2009 and beyond."
