NEW YORK, Feb. 12, 2013

NEW YORK, Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Managed technology and hosting
provider Newtek Business Services, Inc., NASDAQ: NEWT, The Small Business
Authority®, today announced the release of a new low-cost, high-performance
computing solutions designed for today's small-business IT demands. The
solutions include a new line of dedicated server configurations, which feature
Intel® Xeon® Quad Core, Dual-Quad Core, and Dual-Hex Core processors, and an
optional Managed Server Care Bundle, which relieves small businesses and their
IT managers from most of the server management responsibilities.

Barry Sloane, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Newtek
Business Services said, "As small-business web and IT demands evolve, it is
imperative that our hosted technology solutions evolve with it. Our new server
solutions are just one example of how we continue to provide small-business
clients with increased computing power and support while simultaneously
decreasing cost."

"With Newtek's Managed Server Care Bundle, which is now available on both new
and existing dedicated servers, as well as on its Cloud Virtual Private Server
offering, customers receive the following services as part of one, simple
option: server monitoring, nightly backups, a hardware firewall, monthly patch
and fix management, McAffee antivirus software, Diskeeper software, and up to
three hours per month of extended server support. Extended support, in
essence, provides each customer with its own server operations department that
can address needs beyond the normal scope of support, which includes, but is
not limited to, installing and configuring custom software or trouble-shooting
application issues not related to the hosting service."

Full details of Newtek's new offerings can be found on the company's managed
technology website.
