Quest Enters Into An Agreement With AXS-One, Further Expanding Customer Choice For Hosting and Managed Services

Sacramento, CA: February 14, 2008— AXS-One [OTCBB : AXSO], a leading provider of scalable, high-performance records compliance management (RCM) solutions, today announced an agreement with Quest Technology Management, a leading technology provider serving Fortune 1000 companies.

Under the terms of the agreement, Quest will resell the AXS-One Compliance Platform™, offering it as an integrated component of its hosting and managed services messaging offering. Quest has already closed an agreement with its first customer, and will start to offer the solution to its existing hosting customers in the coming weeks for the new archiving service. Quest will also offer the AXS-One Compliance Platform™ to its existing customers.

The Quest agreement represents a major step forward for AXS-One’s Hosting Division, which the company launched last month. The new division is dedicated to offering innovative archiving technologies to key providers in the hosting and e-Discovery markets. AXS-One also recently announced reseller agreements with two of the world’s major hosting providers.

"At a time when hosting is emerging as the key issue for messaging, AXS-One remains the only on-site archiving and electronic records management solutions vendor to directly address this management priority," said Bill Lyons, CEO of AXS-One. "Our team is focused on delivering a rich set of features and functionality, with the lowest infrastructure costs and fast implementation. This in turn allows partners such as Quest to significantly expand the value they offer to their customers while expanding their own revenue opportunities."

Numerous factors are contributing to the growth in hosted e-mail archival and compliance services: increased needs for regulatory compliance, discovery requirements and large and growing messaging data stores. IDC predicts that the market for hosted e-mail archiving services alone will reach a CAGR of more than 27 percent through 2010. As a result, enterprises are turning to hosting providers such as Quest to reduce complexity and costs, and want a consolidated offering that includes mailbox services and disaster recovery. Moving forward, these needs are expanding to include retention and disposition, as well as self-service e-discovery capabilities.

"Quest has successfully built its business by providing reliable, cost-effective, innovative services, combined with the highest levels of customer service. We plan to leverage that success to grow our hosting and managed services business through 2008," said Tim Burke, CEO of Quest. "The due diligence our company performed to find a suitable archiving partner confirmed that AXS-One is the only vendor that can today deliver what the market is asking for: complete functionality with low infrastructure costs in a solution that is easy and fast to implement."

The AXS-One Compliance Platform provides customers a seamless and easy to implement solution to address the reactive, expensive and labor-intensive responses to litigation and e-discovery. This is achieved through a single archiving and electronic records management software platform. The platform handles policy-based management of disparate electronic records, including e-mail and instant messages, reports, SAP documents and data, desktop documents, voice, video and images. The solution, available as a client-side product as well as a hosted offering through AXS-One partners, offers a range of capabilities to address growing concerns and requirements for records management as well as delivering exceptional operational savings and superior ROI.
