Continuity Software’s RecoverGuard Named Finalist for 2011 SearchDataCenter.com Products of the Year Award

Disaster Recovery (DR) and High Availability (HA) Monitoring and Management Software Named Finalist in Infrastructure Category for its Ability to Plug Major Gaps in Operations of Most Enterprises

New York, NY and Tel Aviv, Israel (December 27, 2011) – Continuity Software™, the world’s leading provider of disaster recovery (DR) and high availability (HA) monitoring and management solutions, today announced that its RecoverGuard version 5.4 (v5.4) software has been named a finalist for TechTarget’s 2011 SearchDataCenter.com Products of the Year Award in the Infrastructure category. RecoverGuard v5.4, together with the other finalists, was judged and chosen from the countless nominations received based on its innovation, performance, ease of integration, ease of use and functionality, value, and user feedback. RecoverGuard v5.4 was selected for its ability to “plug a major gap in the operations of most enterprises where the ability to recover is essentially untested and the time and best priorities unknown.”

“What we like best about the Products of the Year (POY) competition is that it gives us a chance to see the very best that today’s IT industry has to offer. It’s a fantastic opportunity to forget all about the vendors’ names or revenue numbers, focus objectively on the products, and show our readers what those products can bring to the data center,” said Stephen J. Bigelow, Senior Technology Editor at SearchDataCenter.com. “Selecting the best IT products this year was a difficult assignment as not only were there a bumper crop of product submissions, but we also raised the bar by revising and enhancing our judging criteria.”

“Continuity Software is sincerely honored to have been designated a finalist for TechTarget’s SearchDataCenter.com 2011 Products of the Year Award,” said Gil Hecht, founder and CEO, Continuity Software. “To have been singled-out by one of the most trusted and turned-to sources for data center solutions is an enviable testament to RecoverGuard v5.4’s industry-unique ability to enable global companies to ensure disaster recovery (DR), high availability (HA) and service level agreement (SLA) compliance across their geographically distributed primary production and remote DR sites, as well as make private cloud disaster recovery management possible.” He continued, “We also applaud our esteemed fellow finalists and wish them the best of luck in the finals.”
