Companies Selected for “Cool Vendor Report” Based on Innovation, Impact and Intrigue

Slough, UK — March 27, 2008 — SEPATON, Inc., the leader in enterprise-class data protection solutions, is pleased to announce that it has been named one of Gartner’s “Cool Vendors in Data Protection” in a March 20, 2008 report released by Gartner, Inc. Written by Dave Russell and John P. Morency, research vice presidents, the report, “Cool Vendors in Data Protection, 2008,” detailed five disk-based data protection solutions from companies like SEPATON which offer innovative, impactful, and intriguing solutions in the data protection marketplace.

The report states: “In early 2006, Gartner stated that “Disk-to-disk backup and, therefore, disk-based recoveries will be the most significant technology impact on recovery in the next five years.” In 2008, Gartner reiterates that this trend will continue. In fact, they have seen a significant uptake in the adoption of disk-based recovery solutions in 2007 and early 2008. End-user inquiry and conference polling results show that disk-based backup, heterogeneous replication, deduplication and VTL offerings are being considered and deployed at an accelerating rate.”

“SEPATON has created a very differentiated approach to data protection in the enterprise through its ContentAware™ architecture,” said Mike Worhach, president and chief executive officer, SEPATON, Inc. “Over the past year, SEPATON has grown its customer base exponentially with enterprise-class VTL and deduplication installations in more than 25 countries around the world. This success points to the demand for solutions that perform fast enough to meet demanding service levels, scale with the business, and minimise power and space in the process. We believe recognition from Gartner as a cool vendor in our marketplace is another important milestone for us. We are pleased to see further recognition for our efforts.”
