SAN FRANCISCO -- February 25, 2013

EVault, Inc., a Seagate Company (NASDAQ:STX), announced today that Terry
Cunningham, president and general manager, has been named one of CRN’s 2013
Channel Chiefs for the third consecutive year. 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.

Cunningham, a former channel partner himself, has over 20 years of experience
in indirect sales. He was named a Channel Chief again as a result of his
exceptional leadership, innovative ideas, and commitment to partner success in
the rapidly evolving backup and recovery space. Cunningham has also been
instrumental in driving monthly recurring revenue (MRR) models for the
channel, bringing them into the future of software delivery. Additionally, he
was recognized as one of CRN’s Top 100 Channel Executives in 2012, an award
given to the most influential and innovative channel executives in North
America.

Under Cunningham’s leadership this past year, EVault expanded its global
channel presence announcing strategic partnerships with blue-chip businesses
in the EMEA, APAC and Latin American regions bringing its portfolio of
cloud-connected data protection to more businesses in these high-growth
markets. The company also launched EVault 7, a significant upgrade to EVault’s
cloud-connected backup and recovery platform, and a guaranteed SLA and speedy
4-hour option for its EVault Cloud Disaster Recovery Service. Both offerings
bring more substantial data backup and recovery options and opportunities for
profitability to the channel.

“It’s an immense honor to be named one of CRN’s Channel Chiefs for a third
consecutive year, but the real praise must be given to EVault’s channel team
and our partners for their tireless commitment to and passion for customer
service,” said Cunningham. “Due to their outstanding work, we’ve been able to
strengthen existing channel relationships, introduce a number of attractive
services and expand our reach into growing international markets. EVault’s
success relies heavily on the strong two-way commitment we have with our
channel partners - we provide outstanding cloud-connected backup and recovery
solutions and they in turn help us lead the data protection industry into the
future.”

For over ten years, Channel Chiefs have been 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.”

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.
