Inventor, Programmer, Software Visionary and Patent Holder Returns To Lead Next Stage of Growth and Product Innovation

BURBANK CA--(Marketwired - April 24, 2014) -  Condusiv™ Technologies, Corporation, the leader in high-performance software optimizing technology, people and businesses, today announced that 33 year IT veteran, Chairman and Founder, Craig Jensen, has joined the company's executive management team as its Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately.

Craig Jensen will play a critical role in shaping Condusiv's technology strategy and building upon the momentum of the company's I/O optimization software product line as the company embarks on its next phase of growth and leadership across transformative trends in virtualization, Cloud, Big Data, and Software Defined Data Centers.

"I am honored, energized and extremely excited to be back in a highly active roll at Condusiv. I have a strong team on board and with our V-locity acceleration software for virtual and physical environments we are poised to dramatically broaden and improve server and storage performance for the millions of users we have helped for 33 years. We will continue to evolve and build world class software that dramatically improves conditions at customer sites. We believe we have a great opportunity to be rewarded for doing that well and sharing that opportunity with our solutions provider partners," said Condusiv's new CEO, Craig Jensen.

As the company's original Founder and Chairman, Craig built one of the most successful software companies in the information technology marketplace. Condusiv Technologies Corporation (formerly Diskeeper Corporation) is the 12th oldest independent software company in the world.

Jensen went on to say "when a software product begins to take hold in a market, I know what needs to be done not only to support growth but how to accelerate exponential growth."

"Condusiv has just been recognized in a unique and impactful list of 'Cool Vendors' by Gartner Inc., recently awarded a 5-Star rating in CRN's 2014 Partner Program Guide, recognized by CIOReview Magazine as one of the Top 20 Most Promising Enterprise Software Companies of 2014, and our V-locity I/O optimization software was selected as a finalist in the Storage Magazine/SearchStorage.com 2013 Products Of The Year. 2014 will be a great year at Condusiv Technologies. Our next release of V-locity will be dramatic and notable, it's great to be back at Condusiv," said Jensen.

Condusiv Technologies' long run as one of the IT industry's top Software Companies is no coincidence. The company developed one of the industry's best-selling third-party software products in the marketplace -- Diskeeper -- and experienced accelerated growth in the PC market that led to over 45 million licenses sold and a 90% footprint in the Fortune 1000. Beyond file system management software, Condusiv developed world-leading caching technology that has been OEM'd by nearly every major PC manufacturer in the world and is installed on millions of laptops and ultrabooks world-wide. Condusiv's flagship V-locity® I/O optimization software product line has quickly amassed nearly 2,000 virtualization customers. Craig Jensen is not just a visionary by reputation but a visionary in fact. "I had some great success but I am not finished. There are big challenges facing our customers that the convergence of social media, mobility, cloud and information patterns have brought forth. Condusiv is in a great position to dramatically help and benefit our customers with innovative solutions that harness these forces to create and drive new business opportunities. I have returned to Condusiv because I want to support my team in realizing the goal of seeing their hard work make a big difference for our customers in a meaningful and prominent way."
