SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - April 29, 2008) - InMage Systems®, Inc. ( has been included in the list of "Cool Vendors" in the Cool Vendors in Data Protection 2008 report by Gartner, Inc. The report was published March 20 and authored by Gartner analysts Dave Russell and John P. Morency.

InMage Systems was listed in the Gartner Report, which covered five innovative, impactful and intriguing vendors in data protection. According to the Gartner, Inc. Cool Vendors in Data Protection 2008 report, "In recent years, some of the most interesting innovations in backup/recovery have come from smaller vendors at the periphery, and not from larger vendors at the core. The giant vendors may consume the new vendors, but it is also possible that, during the next three to five years, some emerging vendors may survive and thrive in their own right, and make a minor, but meaningful, impact on the storage landscape."

"We are very proud to be included in a Gartner research report covering innovative and impactful data protection vendors," said John Ferraro, CEO, InMage Systems.
