"FalconStor technology enables customers and partners to be free. We give them
the freedom to migrate, optimize, recover and provide continuity for the
heterogeneous storage portfolios which many customers possess today," said
Gary Quinn, President and CEO, FalconStor. "We allow cloud providers to
incorporate disparate storage platforms into their infrastructure offerings
while the deployment is occurring. We allow customers and partners to use
technology that is right for them, whether that is today's 'spindle
technology,' emerging storage 'flash and SSD' or historical 'tape solutions'
to meet their SLAs with their customers."

As part of the rebranding, FalconStor has launched a new website that displays
a vibrant new corporate look. Shades of dark red replace FalconStor's former
navy blue brand color. The new website also demonstrates FalconStor's customer
centric model and messaging to market its technology based on customer need,
instead of on technology specifications and performance. FalconStor solutions
are showcased under four segments: Migration, Continuity, Recovery, and
Optimization. Visitors will find an array of useful customer testimonials,
videos, and industry spotlights focused on healthcare, government, financial
services, education and manufacturing.

FalconStor will also be rolling out its new look with a print and digital ad
campaign featuring famous champions of freedom, such as Mahatma Gandhi and
Winston Churchill. The ads feature images of these prominent figures along
with their inspiring quotes, including Gandhi's "Freedom is never dear at any
price.It is the breath of life."Viewers are encouraged to use the Twitter
hashtag #befree as part of the campaign with any topics or comments related to
freedom.

"The Power to Be Free branding campaign brings a fresh, one-of-a-kind approach
to promoting data management solutions, which we believe solidifies
FalconStor's positive momentum within the industry. We are passionate about
this campaign, and have already seen its positive effects internally and with
customers and partners across the globe," continued Quinn.

"Most importantly, we hope these images and stories inspire our clients to
free themselves from the stress of worrying about data loss, downtime,
managing multiple products, and how to best control the never-ending data
sprawl. FalconStor is fully focused on seizing this opportunity by redefining
our company and the solutions we offer.By the end of the year, our customers
will have a simple, single, integrated platform for all of their data
management needs; freeing them even further to run their businesses."

In rolling out the new website, and the branding, messaging and advertising
campaigns, FalconStor worked with several agencies including; JEMC,
Engagelogic, Underscore Marketing, EPOCH 5 Public Relations and Greenstone
Marketing.
