Kroll Ontrack, Inc. signs reseller agreement with Unitrends

MINNEAPOLIS – Sept. 30, 2003 – Kroll Ontrack Inc., provider of Ontrack Data Recovery products and services and a wholly owned subsidiary of Kroll Inc. (NASDAQ: KROL), announced today a reseller agreement with Unitrends Software Corp., providing the Myrtle Beach, S.C.-based data-protection company with Ontrack® PowerControls™ Mailbox Recovery Software. PowerControls, an industry-leading mailbox recovery software tool to restore individual mailboxes, messages, folders, attachments and other elements from existing backup Microsoft Exchange Server database (.EDB) files thereby eliminating the need for brick-level backups, offers Unitrends an easy, time-saving solution for its Exchange Server mailbox recovery needs.

“Working with Ontrack, we are able to provide new capabilities that enhance our backup and crash-recovery technology, offering our customers a more complete solution for data protection,” said Barry Cole, Unitrends’ vice president, professional services. “PowerControls software is a great option for single mailbox recovery and improves Unitrends’ ability to support our clients.”

PowerControls helps solve the increased storage management needs of IT by offering a more efficient and cost-effective solution for mailbox recovery. With an Advanced Find feature, administrators can save time by searching across all mailboxes in an archive .EDB file, quickly locating and restoring the requested data. PowerControls also features a new, powerful and easy-to-use tool called the “ExtractWizard,” which allows administrators to restore an online backup to any alternate location that is not an Exchange server. The PowerControls ExtractWizard is designed to work together with existing Exchange backup software. The feature eliminates the need for a duplicate Exchange Server, otherwise known as a Recovery Server, to perform the restore of an online backup.

“Ontrack PowerControls allows companies such as Unitrends to focus on their core competencies," said Jim Reinert, director, Ontrack Data Recovery. "Partnering with Unitrends will give its customers an industry-leading solution for its Microsoft Exchange Servers, while also helping Unitrends save valuable development time and resources."Ontrack PowerControls™ is available by calling Ontrack at 1-800-872-2599 or online at www.ontrack.com.
