Visual Site also receives highest score in Current Offering category in September 2007 Web analytics report

SAN DIEGO – September 11/12, 2007 – Visual Sciences, Inc. (formerly known as WebSideStory, Inc.) (NASDAQ: VSCN), a leading provider of real-time analytics applications, today announced that Forrester Research has named Visual Sciences Visual Site® and HBX™ Analytics products to the Leader and Strong Performer categories, respectively, in The Forrester Wave™: Web Analytics, Q3 2007 report. Published on September 11, 2007, the report evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of the top Web analytics products against 127 criteria which are grouped into three high-level categories: Current Offering, Strategy and Market Presence. To be included in the report, vendors were required to have a significant installed base of enterprise-class clients and corporate revenues of more than $25 million in 2006.

Visual Site was named a Leader in The Forrester Wave: Web Analytics Q3 2007 independent report and also received the highest score in the Current Offering category. This category takes into account evaluation criteria such as metrics, dimensions and correlations; integration; and reporting and analysis. According to the report, “Visual Site and the underlying Platform 5 technology provide the most powerful data architecture and real-time analysis tools in the industry.” Additionally, Visual Sciences HBX Analytics was acknowledged for its “easy-to-use tools” with the highest score in the usability section of the Current Offering category. According to the report, “HBX offers one of the best interfaces we saw – clean, well designed, and easy for an average business user to find their way around.”

“It is very rewarding to have not one, but two of our products recognized in this report – Visual Site for its power and deep analysis capabilities, and HBX for its usability and ability to address fundamental Web analytics needs,” said Jim MacIntyre, chief executive officer of Visual Sciences. “The findings reflect our position as the only company with the business strategy, services and technology to successfully deliver end-to-end real-time analytics offerings to address the broad range of analytics needs of organizations today – from Web analytics to multichannel customer analytics. And, while Platform 5 was not separately evaluated in this report, we’re very pleased to see it mentioned alongside Visual Site as ‘by far the most sophisticated analysis tools in the industry.’”

In The Forrester Wave: Web Analytics, Q3 2007 report, Forrester Research had this to say about Visual Sciences Visual Site:
• “Visual Site’s ad hoc analysis tools remain the most powerful in the industry, and predefined reports cover the data needs of most business users. Visitor segmentation is also the most powerful in the industry.”
• “Experienced data analysts we talk to love the power of Visual Site and don’t mind learning its unique interface to harness that power.”

In The Forrester Wave: Web Analytics, Q3 2007 report, Forrester Research had this to say about Visual Sciences HBX Analytics:
• “Overall, Visual Sciences HBX Analytics offers a solid analytics tool with the cleanest, most usable interface of all products we evaluated.”
• “…HBX Analytics provides a solid measurement platform, with one of the most usable interfaces we saw. The product is well suited for firms that don’t have many specialized analytics requirements and want to deploy Web analytics to a broad base of business users. With the addition of an interface for power users – HBX Visual Workstation – HBX Analytics is also a good fit for firms that need a tool that can grow with them as they evolve their level of Web analytics sophistication.”
