Crossroads Systems and VideoBank Showcase Leading Digital Asset Management Solutions With the Industry's Most Cost-Effective Data Storage

Joint Solution to Be Showcased at NAB Show and GEOINT Symposium

AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 04/02/14 -- Crossroads Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CRDS), a global provider of data protection solutions, today announced a new partnership with New Jersey-based VideoBank, a leading provider of tools for processing, exploiting, and disseminating full-motion video and imagery to generate real-time situational awareness.

Under the partnership, VideoBank's customers will now be offered the Crossroads StrongBox® data protection appliance, a seamless solution that secures and protects content for long-term preservation. The digital asset management (DAM) solutions offered by VideoBank are used by educational institutions, medical facilities, government organizations, entertainment companies, and the U.S. military to manage and distribute video and other content.

VideoBank's customers can deploy StrongBox to solve the ever-growing budget challenges surrounding the storage of mission-critical content. Working seamlessly with VideoBank tools, the complete StrongBox archiving solution (StrongBox plus an LTO 6 library) for 200 TB of content starts at $44,550 -- allowing organizations to archive and protect information without the considerably higher costs associated with disk-based storage.

"Partnering with VideoBank helps further extend StrongBox's reach across several verticals," said David Cerf, executive vice president of strategy and business development at Crossroads Systems. "We're pleased to offer VideoBank's prestigious customers our cost-efficient StrongBox solution for archiving and protecting critical content. From the military, to sports franchises, and post production, organizations face continually increasing storage costs for fast-growing data volumes. StrongBox efficiently addresses this challenge and serves as a significant cost-saving tool alongside VideoBank solutions."

The joint solutions will be showcased April 7-10 at NAB Show in booth SL7624 as well as April 15-17 at GEOINT Symposium in booths 3061 and 1014.
