NEW YORK – May 30, 2002

Globix Corporation, one of the leading providers of value added managed hosting services, today announced the addition of three new business customers for its Microsoft Hosted Exchange 2000 service, in collaboration with its solutions partner, Apptix.

The ongoing customer wins for Globix include a leading public relations firm; a financial services company; and Campden, a London-based publishing company — all of which have contributed to tripling sales of hosted Microsoft Exchange 2000.

Apptix, based in Sterling, Virginia, a leading provider of hosted messaging, collaboration and communications solutions for service providers, is a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner for Hosting and Application Services

“Not only does this leverage the power of Microsoft Exchange, but also reduces our support and operating costs. The number of new customer wins for Globix is accelerating in areas such as this – a testament to the market demand for Microsoft Exchange 2000 in a hosted environment and demand for our services overall,” said Peter Stevenson, Chief Executive Officer of Globix. “Globix views the Apptix partnership as the logical way to leverage their proven expertise with our reliable, high availability, turnkey solutions.”

“Globix is rapidly increasing the number of customers using this hosted Exchange solution, enabled by Apptix,” said Jason Donahue, Apptix’s CEO and President. “This validates the business model, and shows that there is strong interest in using Globix to outsource Microsoft email services, both in the U.S. and U.K.”
