Paragon Software Launches VAR Portal at Synnex's Varnex Community Conference

Channel-Centric Company Bolsters Support for VARs, Builds Upon Commitment to Channel

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - April 20, 2009) - Paragon Software Group (PSG), the technology leader in innovative data security and data management solutions, today announced the launch of its new Value Added Reseller (VAR) Portal -- at Synnex's Varnex Community Conference. Paragon's sales model is 100 percent channel centric, and the new portal is designed to give registered VARs improved access to all of the tools needed to ensure successful sales and support of its solutions while delivering new revenue opportunities.

Paragon's new VAR portal will enable Elite and Premium partners to obtain training materials and sales collateral; view event calendars and promotion schedules; register deals and request MDF all in one convenient place.

Paragon and Varnex share the same goals in fostering a cohesive approach to the small and mid sized business (SMB) community through the channel, including sharing best practices, connecting partners, services, support, expertise, and unique capabilities -- with the goal of making profitable business growth possible. "In these economic times, we are seeing our competitors either dramatically scaling back or even discontinuing their channel programs," noted Steve Young, Paragon's channel sales director. "As clearly demonstrated by our investment and participation at Varnex, Paragon is implementing the opposite strategy -- our new VAR portal offers improved support for our partners and further underscores our continuing commitment to the channel."

Focused on VARs selling to SMB and mid enterprise markets, Paragon's channel program is ideally suited to those VARs offering infrastructure design and implementation services, as well as VARs focused on data-critical verticals such as finance, healthcare, government, and education.

"Paragon recognizes the importance and value of our channel partners," continued Young. "We employ a 100 percent channel centric sales model, combine it with the ease-of-use of our products and the ease of doing business within our program and that translates into easy sales for our partners."

Paragon VAR, Sierra Associates, Inc. is reaping the benefits of Paragon's channel program. According to Sierra CEO Truman Roe, "Sierra has worked with many vendors in the backup space, and Paragon stands out as a tremendous partner for us. They have an excellent channel partner program that is backed by great products and very generous margins. Bottom line; in a down economy, Paragon has a clear vision for helping my team make their quota."

While Paragon's entire product line is available to the channel, its mainstay products for VARs center on Drive Backup® and Partition Manager®, both of which provide the ultimate in data security, storage and management for PCs, servers and networks. Noted for its comprehensive functionality and smart technologies, Drive Backup enables users to back up and restore their system in minutes eliminating the time consuming process of applications setup and customization after a system crash. Partition Manager, the safest and most reliable partition solution available, minimizes system downtime and reduces the overall cost of IT infrastructure administration by delivering Windows® server reconfiguration, system upgrades, deployment, backup, and disaster recovery functionality in one easy to use package.

At Varnex, Paragon will give a presentation on the requirements for backing up in a virtualized environment, as well as run demonstrations of its flagship Drive Backup and Partition Manager products. Additionally, Varnex VARs will receive an extra ten percent upfront discount for a registered deal through Synnex.
