"Balent's extensive channel experience from managing channel sales at CA Technologies has proved to be a great asset to the FalconStor channel team," said Gary Quinn, chief operating officer for FalconStor Software. "With her strong track record of improving partner and customer confidence, it is no surprise that this is the fifth year in a row that Balent has been chosen as one of CRN's Women of the Channel. Balent will continue to drive partner relationships that will grow FalconStor's channel program as we continue to redefine traditional thinking about data protection and recovery."A special feature of the Women of the Channel is in the June issue of CRN magazine and expanded coverage of the Power 100 will be featured online at www.crn.com .
