More Than 20 Presentations Scheduled for Industry-Leading Solutions Providers

AUSTIN, Texas -- Crossroads Systems, Inc. (OTCBB Pink Sheets: CRDS.PK), a leading provider of Business Information Assurance (BIA) solutions, today announced its participation in IT ChannelVision, a Gartner event, October 3-6th at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa in Phoenix, Arizona.

Rob Sims, President and CEO of Crossroads, and Jo McCausland, head of the Crossroads BIA Partner Program, will be highlighting Crossroads' new strategic direction and the new Crossroads BIA Partner Program to key solution providers and members of the media.

"Crossroads is expanding its sales model to engage directly with end users via a new channel composed of Value Added Resellers (VARs), System Integrators (SIs) and consulting firms," said Jo McCausland, head of the Crossroads BIA Partner Program.
