Service Provides Enterprise-Grade Messaging and Communication

NEW YORK, NY (June 28, 2005) – Globix Corporation (Amex: GEX), a leading provider of application, media, IP infrastructure and network services, today announced upgrades to its Hosted Exchange service through its partnership with Apptix, a service automation software and solutions provider for the outsourced messaging services market.

Globix’ Hosted Exchange service allows customers to utilize Microsoft® Exchange Enterprise Server capabilities within the hosting and management environment of Globix. Enabled by Apptix, Globix’ Hosted Exchange service delivers robust functionality such as email, public folders, full-featured calendaring, contact and task management, distribution groups, PDA synchronization and wireless access via Blackberry®, Palm®, and Windows® CE devices.

“As remote access to email and other critical business files becomes more essential to the success of a company, it has become increasingly important to keep our customers connected from anywhere at anytime,” said Pete Stevenson, CEO of Globix. “Our upgraded Hosted Exchange service is designed to meet those ever changing messaging, communication and collaborative needs.”

Microsoft® Exchange services are a valuable component of Globix managed services which eliminate the need for customers to invest in and manage their own computer hardware and software. Consequently, Globix minimizes the cost of ongoing maintenance challenges, delivers enhanced reliability and reduces information technology costs for the end user.

Globix was also one of the first companies to employ Apptix’s service automation and management platform, TECOS®. TECOS enables customers to add and delete users, create and manage public folder and distribution lists, define service profiles for different user groups, and configure synchronization with wireless devices through a Globix web portal. In addition, services are designed to scale and easily expand as a business grows.

“We are excited that Globix has selected Apptix to enhance their Hosted Exchange offering,” said Amir Hudda, CEO of Apptix. “By leveraging Globix’ on-demand software expertise and Apptix’s premier competencies in enterprise-grade messaging and collaboration, we are able to continually produce and upgrade a secure, high performance solution that can be deployed quickly and easily to any user over the Internet.”
