EVault Awarded 5-Star Rating in CRN's 2012 Partner Programs Guide for Second Consecutive Year08:00 EDT Tuesday, May 15, 2012 SAN FRANCISCO (Business Wire) -- EVault, Inc., a Seagate Company (NASDAQ:STX), today announced that its Cloud-Connected Service Provider (CCSP) Program has been awarded a 5-Star Partner rating in CRN's Partner Programs Guide for the second year in a row. EVault president and general manager Terry Cunningham was recognized as a CRN Channel Chief for the second consecutive year as well. The 2012 CRN Partner Program Guide and CRN 5-Star Rating are the definitive listings of manufacturers and software publishers that provide services and offer products for the IT channel. CRN's Partner Program Guide recognizes vendors who have channel programs and derive a portion of their sales through the indirect IT channel. In building the list, UBM Channel Research assessed vendors based on their investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication. CRN selected EVault and CCSP because of the program's exceptional commitment to channel success. Since its launch in 2010, the EVault CCSP Program has provided partners with a quick and seamless way to extend monthly recurring revenue through EVault's proven expertise in managing cloud-connected storage solutions. EVault's CCSP Program allows partners to go to market quickly, win customers, and increase profitability – all with the full backing of the EVault brand. “The companies listed in CRN's 2012 Partner Programs Guide represent a comprehensive list of the best channel programs in the market today,” said Kelley Damore, VP and editorial director, for UBM Channel's CRN. “The 5-star award is reserved for vendors that understand that a successful partnership does not rely solely on the technology. By offering their partners tools, education and regular updates, vendors on this list go above and beyond traditional support to ensure a mutually beneficial partnership.” “The CRN Partner Programs Guide is the gold standard for recognizing the collaboration that takes place between cloud technology vendors and resellers. We are extremely honored to be included in such a well-regarded list,” said Dave Hallmen, VP of worldwide sales and marketing at EVault. “The EVault team is committed to providing our partners with everything they need to thrive in the channel, and our CCSP Program is a complete package that helps VARs and service providers grow and succeed.” The 2012 Partner Programs Guide and 5-Star Partners listing will be featured on CRN.com and in the March 2012 issue of CRNmagazine.
