X1 Technologies Announces the Release of X1 Workgroup Edition

Secure, Centralized Enterprise Search for Small and Medium-Sized Businesses

PASADENA, CA – October 5, 2005X1 Technologies, Inc., a leader in desktop and enterprise search solutions, today announced the immediate availability of X1® Workgroup Edition, an enterprise search solution targeted for small and medium-sized companies.

X1 Workgroup Edition employs the same solution for information search and delivery as X1 Enterprise Edition but is scaled for smaller server environments. It combines the intuitive user interface from the X1 Desktop Search solution with workgroup-specific network content components and permits business users to search, preview, and act upon data, no matter where it resides in the corporation.

"The challenge for us, as a smaller law firm, was to find a search solution that had all the features and benefits of an enterprise search offering but was a fraction of the cost to implement and manage," said Michael Roller, IS Manager, Fabyanske, Westra, Hart & Thomson, P.A. "Our attorneys are continually searching for information. X1 Workgroup Edition will allow them to find data faster and more accurately. The biggest benefit will be the ability to locate and reuse existing work product."

Based on the X1 desktop search solution, X1 Workgroup Edition locally indexes PC desktop content and integrates it with indexed server content for rapid searching, viewing, and acting on critical information - including current and archived data. The search interface employs the powerful features of the X1's desktop search technology which include: user-centric search, preview, and action options; local and remote indexing controls; automated indexing and search tools; and the ability to save frequent, complex searches to eliminate retyping. Businesses with remote users can use the web-based search interface which provides end-user access to indexed server content.

To simplify deployment throughout an organization, X1 Workgroup Edition allows an IT manager to easily customize and configure the application to maintain a standardized environment and for distribution to all users. IT departments have access to enterprise-level deployment and management tools including: silent installer for fast, large-scale desktop deployment; centralized client configuration and management; and support for existing Windows Server security protocols and permissions, allowing end users to only find information within the purview of existing company privacy and security policies.

"As is true in larger corporations, small and medium-sized businesses have amassed large amounts of data and are looking for a way to give their users an intuitive way to access the right information," said Josh Jacobs, president of X1 Technologies. "X1 Workgroup Edition brings the award-winning X1 Search platform to small and medium- sized businesses that our Enterprise Edition customers at larger businesses have come to rely on - all in a way that was designed to be conducive to their infrastructure and unique IT needs."

Pricing & Availability
X1 Workgroup Edition is available for single-server installations of less than 200 seats, with no limit on the number of documents indexed. X1 Workgroup Edition starts at $5,000 which includes the desktop client, content connector for files, workgroup server, deployment manager, server manager, customer support and version upgrades.
