WALTHAM, Mass. – March 28, 2011 – Actifio™, the leader in Data Management Virtualization (DMV), today announced that Everything Channel’s CRN Magazine has named the company one of “10 Hot Emerging Vendors for March 2011.” CRN has also awarded Actifio’s Partner Program a “Five-Star” partner designation, given to “elite” vendors whose channel programs have the best partnering elements.

CRN said that Actifio and the other 9 Hot Emerging Vendors “are exploding onto the scene…looking to shake up the industry in various technology segments, from security to cloud computing, from software to hardware….These tech startups know the importance of the channel and are looking to align with valued channel partners to get their names and products out.”

The magazine noted that Actifio’s applications can drive down costs by up to 90 percent. The company announced its Channel Partner Program in January 2011 to make the Actifio software suite available through VARs such as Lighthouse Computer Services, Focus Technology Solutions and Nexus Information Systems.

“We set the highest standards for ourselves when we created our Channel Partner Program to ensure our partners have the tools, training and industry-leading margins to capitalize on Data Management Virtualization which is addressing one of the hottest market segments,” said Ash Ashutosh, CEO, Actifio. “Being named so quickly to CRN’s 10 Hot Emerging Vendors list is a tremendous validation that our program is setting a strong foundation for long-term successful execution and delivery of our award winning solutions. Actifio is transforming the way organizations handle their data management operations with a single, efficient solution for data protection, disaster recovery, business continuity, or any data copy operation at up to 90 percent lower TCO.”

Available for Direct Value Added Resellers (D-VARs) throughout North America, the Actifio Partner Program includes dedicated training tools, joint marketing programs and go-to-market resources that streamline sales processes and enable rapid deal closure. Actifio’s DMV solution transforms individual silos of point tools into a single data protection management solution that addresses data protection, disaster recovery and business continuity.
