MELVILLE, N.Y., Feb. 21, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FalconStor Software, Inc.
(Nasdaq:FALC), a market leader in disk-based data protection, announced today
that Gary Quinn, FalconStor's vice president of North American sales and
marketing has been named one of UBM Tech Channel's CRN 2013 Channel Chiefs.
This prestigious list of the most influential and powerful leaders in the IT
channel recognizes those executives directly responsible for driving channel
sales and growth within their organization, while evangelizing and defending
the importance of the channel throughout the entire IT Industry.

Always an innovator and visionary in the data protection market, FalconStor is
once again taking charge by expanding its channel marketing and sales
initiatives in 2013. Starting immediately, FalconStor is adding two new
partner designations to its award-winning PartnerChoice program – Professional
Services Provider (PSP) and Managed Services Provider (MSP), responding to the
ever-increasing needs of the data protection industry. Leveraging FalconStor's
extensive industry knowledge, the PSP program certifies partners for all
aspects of assessment, planning, implementation and deployment of its
solutions, while the MSP program addresses the rapidly growing market for
cloud-based data protection services. In addition, FalconStor has taken a
segmented approach to its go-to-market strategy to align customers with the
right FalconStor solutions and the partners that are best positioned to
deliver them, ensuring highly profitable customer engagements for the channel.

For over ten years, Channel Chiefs were selected by the CRN editorial team
based on channel experience, program innovations, channel-driven revenue, and
public support for the importance of IT Channel Sales.

"The 2013 Channel Chiefs list recognizes vendor executives dedicated to
driving channel programs in the IT marketplace," said Kelley Damore, senior
vice president, editorial director, CRN. "Our annual Channel Chiefs issue is a
must-read for IT solution providers evaluating new vendors or looking to
expand solution offerings. These are the people, the products and the programs
that any savvy solution provider needs to know. We congratulate this year's
Channel Chiefs for their stellar record of business innovation and applaud
them for their continued dedication to the partner community."

"Partners are under more pressure than ever before to deliver solutions that
protect their customers' data from mounting natural threats and human-induced
disasters. Add to that the ever-expanding size and complexity of the typical
data center and it's clear that someone needs to address these issues head on
– and that someone is FalconStor," Quinn said. "FalconStor is driving the
future of data protection, and PartnerChoice is one of this industry's most
aggressive and dynamic channel programs, which is continually evolving to meet
the needs of our partners and their customers."

Selected by CRN's editorial staff, the 2013 Channel Chiefs list is featured in
the 2/25/13 issue of CRN Magazine and will be featured online at www.crn.com.
