SAN FRANCISCO -- October 30, 2012

EVault, Inc., a Seagate Company (NASDAQ:STX), today announced the EVault®
backup and recovery platform will now take advantage of the Windows Azure
cloud platform. In conjunction with this initiative, EVault will be expanding
development, sales and marketing collaboration around Windows Azure. EVault
Endpoint Protection (EVault EP), a cloud-connected backup, recovery and data
security solution for endpoint devices, is available on Windows Azure. EVault
EP is targeted at enterprises, as well as midmarket businesses.

EVault Endpoint Protection automates laptop backup recovery and provides
secure capabilities — including local file encryption, port access control
and, if a laptop is lost or stolen, remote data deletion and device tracing —
to help control valuable data spread across mobile workforces. EVault EP
enables organizations to secure data on every PC and laptop, ensuring critical
corporate information is safe when a device disappears. The endpoint data is
automatically backed up to the cloud and can easily be recovered by users
themselves. EVault EP offers policy-based, centralized administration and
self-service management to help IT attain that perfect balance of corporate
control and end user independence.

“Businesses are looking for flexible, cost-effective data backup and recovery
solutions. Our expanded relationship with Microsoft represents the increased
demand for more integrated and simple to use cloud-connected storage services
that satisfy an organization's unique requirements,” said Terry Cunningham,
president and general manager, EVault. “As we extend our footprint around the
world, we see great value in taking advantage of Windows Azure to help our
customers maintain business continuity and ensure their data needs are met
anytime and anywhere.”

“Windows Azure allows solution providers like EVault to give their customers
virtually unlimited capacity and flexibility for backup and recovery to help
customers mitigate a wide range of information risks,” said Kim Akers, general
manager, Developer and Platform Evangelism, Microsoft.

Windows Azure is Microsoft’s cloud platform, helping developers build the next
generation of applications that will span from the cloud to the enterprise
data center. The platform combines cloud-based developer capabilities with
storage, computational and networking infrastructure services, all hosted on
Microsoft’s servers.
