X1 Technologies Positioned in the Visionaries Quadrant for 2006 Information Access Technology Magic Quadrant

Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

GARTNER SYMPOSIUM/ITxpo, ORLANDO, FL – October 10, 2006 X1 Technologies, a leader in enterprise desktop search, today announced from Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2006 that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Visionaries quadrant in the 2006 Information Access Technology Magic Quadrant* report.

According to Gartner, they "consider all enterprise search vendors to be information access technology vendors; however, those that only offer search capabilities (frequently called "keyword search") are inherently not Visionaries or candidates for the Leaders quadrant. Finding information, and acting on it intelligently, demands increasingly sophisticated and innovative strategies."

"We consider our positioning in the visionaries quadrant by Gartner as further confirmation of both our strategic vision and our ability to deliver a secure, scalable and open solution that brings unified actionable search to the business environment for access to all relevant corporate data," said Josh Jacobs, president of X1 Technologies. "This year has brought us continued success in all components of our business - financial performance, customer sales and deployments, technology innovation and partnership expansion."

The X1 Enterprise Platform brings enterprise desktop search technology to the business environment for access to all information whether it resides on the desktop or across the corporate network. X1 can be managed, deployed and extended across the enterprise while retaining the scalability, performance and security required in business today.
