SAN FRANCISCO -- December 04, 2012

EVault, Inc., a Seagate Company (NASDAQ:STX), announced today that it is
further expanding into the Brazilian market by partnering with the Alcateia
Group, a leading IT solutions provider in Brazil. Alcateia was chosen to be
the Brazilian distributor for the full range of EVault cloud-connected
services, including EVault SaaS, EVault Endpoint Protection and EVault Cloud
Disaster Recovery Service.

EVault provides onsite, cloud and cloud-connected data protection solutions to
help organizations protect distributed environments, supported by a secure,
reliable cloud storage infrastructure and backed by the highest quality
customer service. EVault has been a leader in the industry’s move to hybrid
storage models, with a uniquely integrated ecosystem of EVault storage
software, SaaS, managed services and appliances that help ensure customers
maintain business continuity. Geared towards mid-market and enterprise-level
businesses, EVault solutions are optimized to perform in multi-site,
multi-platform environments, ideal for protecting operations in remote and
/branch office locations.

“Customers' needs are changing, and they are increasingly demanding more
dynamic, secure and reliable cloud-based backup and recovery solutions,” said
Ricardo Marques, product manager at Alcateia. “With EVault’s impressive
portfolio, we’re now able to deliver to our Brazilian resellers the best
onsite, cloud and cloud-connected services available in the market. This gives
both our resellers and their customers failproof and scalable options to fit
any business model.”

With nearly 200 million people and a rapidly expanding economy, Brazil
presents tremendous opportunities for cloud IT solutions providers and
distributors. In a September 18, 2012 press release, Gartner predicted the
highest regional growth rates in public cloud services in 2012 will be
experienced in emerging Asia/Pacific (including India and Indonesia), greater
China, Eurasia (including Russia) and Latin America (including Argentina,
Mexico and Brazil). With over 25,000 clients, Alcateia is a top distributor of
cloud computing solutions in Brazil.

“As we continue to expand our services to new markets around the world, Brazil
was a natural next step. It has a vibrant, growing economy with potential for
massive cloud adoption. Brazil's rapidly expanding private sector has produced
a heightened need for robust backup and recovery solutions,” said William da
Cunha, Vice President of Sales, Americas for EVault. “Alcateia has been a
leader in the IT distribution market in Brazil for over two decades, and this
strategic partnership expands our cloud-connected services to the Brazilian
reseller community, helping companies properly secure their business-critical
