X1 Technologies Receives Third U.S. Patent Related to Search Technology
X1 Technologies Issued U.S. Patent No. 7,496,559 for
Incremental or Reactive Searching of a Variety of Search Targets

PASADENA, CA – March 23, 2009 X1 Technologies, Inc., an innovator in highly usable enterprise search and eDiscovery solutions, today announced the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has granted a patent to X1 Technologies for an invention that provides for incremental or reactive searching of a variety of search targets. Patent, No. 7,496,559, entitled Apparatus and Methods for Locating Data, covers software for narrowing search results against multiple search targets such as files, emails, email attachments, web history, web favorites, and/or the like. The patent addresses the problem of traditional search methods that require a user to type in a search phrase and wait for an answer by giving the user the ability to see incremental results against multiple search targets.

"In the current economic climate, personal productivity solutions that empower users to quickly find emails, files and data within enterprise applications are a necessity," said Bill Gross, CEO, Idealab. "This latest patent represents X1's commitment to delivering innovative search solutions that make people more productive and simplify the task of searching through multiple sources of information."

X1 delivers a combination of products that allow knowledge workers to search, preview and act upon data anywhere in the enterprise from a single, elegant interface. With X1, individuals and businesses can search virtually everything that exists on the PC and server in nearly 500 file types and applications, including email solutions such as Microsoft Exchange and Outlook, Microsoft SharePoint, Symantec Enterprise Vault and IBM Lotus Notes and Domino.

"The issuance of our third patent further demonstrates X1's leadership in providing search solutions that increase end user productivity, which translate into cost savings for businesses of any size," said John Waller, President and COO of X1 Technologies. "Search solutions for personal productivity require a different approach than web based search solutions, which is why X1 has focused on providing a solution that allows users to quickly find what they are looking for within multiple search targets."
