Sepaton Posts Q3 Gains

STOCKLEY PARK, U.K. -- SEPATON, Inc., the leader in enterprise-class data protection solutions, today announced strong results for the third quarter of 2008 ending September 30. Third quarter sales for the company were up 26% compared to the previous quarter, Q2 2008. Margin dollars grew 59% and overall product margins grew 15% points from the previous quarter due to growing data deduplication software demand. SEPATONs install base now totals more than 1,000 customers of its enterprise-ready data protection platform.

Significant growth was experienced through both direct sales channels and via resellers and distributors. Especially notable was the winning of the largest public sector deal in the company’s history for its data deduplication software and virtual tape library (VTL). This deal totals several million dollars and is indicative of the much larger deals in the pipeline as data deduplication technology is proven to provide significant cost savings.

“We’re very pleased with the accelerated growth of our sales directly to enterprise users and via the channel,” said Mike Worhach, president and CEO, SEPATON, Inc. “We recognize that while the outlook for capital expenditures will be constrained given the stark economic realities around the globe, the one bright spot is cost-containment technologies like SEPATON’s deduplication software that requires no new training, yields unmatched cost-savings compared to alternative approaches, and comes with an industry-first guarantee to eliminate buyer risk.”
