CAMPBELL, Calif. -- November 08, 2012

Soonr, a leading provider of secure cloud-based mobile content management for
business, today announced that Soonr Workplace, topped many end-user and
IT-Administrator categories in a business-oriented “Online File Sharing and
Collaboration Solution (OFS) Test Drive” conducted by Enterprise Strategy
Group (ESG), an integrated IT research, analysis, and strategy firm
world-renowned for providing actionable insight and intelligence to the global
IT community.

The assessment appeared in an “October 2012 Online File Sharing and
Collaboration Test Drive.” ESG evaluated and compared 13 cloud-based online
file sharing (OFS) services offering similar features, and ranks Soonr
Workplace at the top of the list in a number of areas. With more than 125,000
current business users, Soonr is one of the fastest growing companies in the
sector. “Our testers sometimes used words such as ‘perfect’ and ‘love it’ when
evaluating this product—words not often otherwise heard from these testers who
have examined and assessed so many OFS products.”

The Test Drive was divided into IT Administrator functions and End-Users
functions. “Soonr Workplace excelled in many areas of the…Test Drive. It
delivers several advanced features while providing an experience for
administrators and end-users that is…simple and intuitive,”

Some of the highest praise was given by testers for Workplace’s mobile
capabilities:

“…testers encountered no problems installing Soonr’s mobile app on their
mobile devices, and opening and reading files was just as smooth for them. In
fact, Soonr received the highest mobile device use rating of all solutions
tested. End-user testers were especially happy with what they described as the
“perfect” rendering of many types of files on their devices, and they reported
that they ‘loved’ having an integrated way to edit them. They used the mobile
app to perform tasks that included adding a slide to a presentation, then
quickly propagating that new file to their synch folders on the website—doing
it all without having to launch any third-party apps.”

“Our testers were extremely impressed that files stored in Soonr can be
created, synched, and edited right from the Soonr mobile app (instead of
downloading other apps to do the editing), remarking that any workers who
travel will probably love Soonr Scribble, a way to annotate and comment on
existing documents and save them as PDFs for collaboration.”

Evaluators expressed admiration for the ease of synching that Workplace
provides…

“Our testers found that the Soonr synch agent delivers more data about users
and their devices to an IT administrator than was the case with any other OFS
product tested. The Soonr Workplace synch agent works elegantly, easily
managing the synching of multiple and large files… Testers appreciated Soonr’s
fast synch performance, even for files as large as 100MB…”

The report also praised the level of data and document security built in to
Soonr Workplace:

“Soonr Workplace stands out with its file-locking capability to prevent
version conflicts, its remote wipe capability to enhance security, its
integrated editing function to assist mobile device users, and its ability to
search for text within files.”

“The entire Soonr team is extremely grateful to Enterprise Strategy Group for
including us in this Test Drive and providing this valuable unbiased
assessment of all the business oriented Online File Sharing services on the
market. This has given Soonr the chance to go head-to-head with some of our
toughest competitors,” said Martin Frid-Nielsen, founder and CEO of Soonr. “We
are delighted by the results, and very pleased with many of the insightful
feedback offered by the individual testers.”
