Recommind Ranked Among Fastest-Growing Companies in North America on Deloitte's 2009 Technology Fast 500™

Company Attributes 658% Revenue Growth to Patented CORE™ Platform and Strong Client Relations

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - October 20, 2009) - Recommind, the leader in search-powered Information Risk Management (IRM) software, today announced that it ranked number 251 on the Technology Fast 500™, Deloitte LLP's ranking of 500 of the fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and clean technology companies in North America. Rankings are based on percentage of fiscal year revenue growth during the five-year period from 2004-2008. Recommind's revenue grew 658% during this period.

Recommind CEO Robert Tennant attributed his company's rapid growth to its superior information risk management (IRM) technology and keen focus on client relations.

"Recommind offers the most effective solutions for the urgent, costly and widespread problems that arise when companies amass large stores of data," Tennant said. "Demand for our IRM software has accelerated alongside the growth in eDiscovery and regulatory activity and the realization that legacy search solutions are not delivering the information employees need to work effectively. Our clients also appreciate our collaborative, partnering approach from the first contact through implementation and beyond. Information management is a complicated, evolving challenge; by working closely with our customers to help them utilize powerful technology to maintain their competitive edge, we will continue to experience rapid growth for years to come."

Recommind's applications for enterprise search, e-mail management, records management, eDiscovery and compliance are powered by the company's unique CORE™ (Context Optimized Relevancy Engine) platform, which automatically identifies distinct concepts contained within a document or data set, regardless of the language or subject. Recommind software enables Fortune 500 enterprises and professional service firms to mitigate information risk while lowering costs and maintaining productivity.

"We congratulate Recommind on this accomplishment."
