Proginet Partners with Lanlogic to Deliver Hosted E-mail Attachment Management Solutions for Businesses of All Sizes
June 23, 2008 Garden City, NY, and Livermore, CA -Proginet Corporation (OTCBB: PRGF), a leading developer of enterprise software for advanced managed file transfer and security applications, and Lanlogic, Inc., an innovative provider of hosted Microsoft Exchange solutions, today announced a new partnership to deliver hosted e-mail attachment management solutions to businesses of all sizes. Through this agreement, Lanlogic will offer Proginet’s CFI Slingshot to customers of its hosted Microsoft Exchange services, enabling users to easily exchange files of any size within and outside their organizations.
Lanlogic provides hosted services and technology support to over 4,000 customers worldwide. Its dedicated Exchange server hosting programs provide customers with the same IT foundation as the world’s largest companies without the complexities and costs of maintaining the systems themselves. By adding Proginet’s Slingshot solution to its hosted offerings for Microsoft Exchange users, Lanlogic will enable its customers to send and receive large files without the need to deploy and manage additional software locally within their organizations.
“With Slingshot, Proginet has an innovative solution that addresses the major attachment management challenges faced by businesses,” said Joe Foos, Director of Sales and Marketing for Lanlogic. “At Lanlogic, we recognize that as the size of files exchanged by businesses continues to grow, so too must our ability to provide customers with the best solutions for exchanging them. Partnering with Proginet gives Lanlogic a distinct competitive advantage by helping its customers overcome the file-size limitations enforced by most e-mail systems. This will enable our customers to conduct business more efficiently.”
The hosted e-mail market represents a significant growth opportunity for CFI Slingshot. According to recent research by Gartner, “Driven by dropping prices and new vendors, the market for hosted e-mail mailboxes is poised for rapid growth over the next five years, from 1% of enterprise seats in 2007 to 20% in 2019.” *
“Lanlogic has a strong history of leadership in the hosted Exchange market,” stated Kevin Bohan, Chief Information Officer for Proginet. “By incorporating Slingshot into their solution, they completely eliminate file-size limitations for their clients. In a market that’s becoming increasingly competitive, this translates into a major competitive differentiator. In addition, the partnership enables Proginet to gain a solid foothold in the rapidly growing market for hosted e-mail solutions. We look forward to working together closely to solve the attachment-management challenges of our mutual customers.”

Lanlogic was founded in 1995 as a network service company. This was at the beginning of the Internet revolution and the company’s original focus was on bringing e-mail and Web browsing services to the marketplace. In the process of doing this, the company discovered that most customer networks were not properly configured to efficiently leverage the Internet, and that the ISP’s of the day were so overwhelmed that they could not provide an acceptable level of service. To solve these problems, Lanlogic decided to build its own ISP network and to expand its consulting services to provide full support for its customer’s networks. Over time, the company has proven capable of providing a much higher level of service at a lower cost by combining both disciplines. In 2001, the company began offering its ISP and hosting services to consultants and integrators looking for a partner rather than just another vendor. Lanlogic currently has customers located in all 50 states and in 20 countries. For more information, visit www.lanlogic.com.
