Continuity Software Joins IBM Data Governance Council

RecoverGuard Software Guarantees Data Protection and Business Continuity by Providing Customers with Disaster Recovery (DR) Management, Monitoring, and Testing Solution

Boston, MA and Hertzlia, Israel (July 19, 2007) – Continuity Software™, a leading provider of Disaster Recovery Management (DRM) solutions, today announced it has joined the IBM Data Governance Council. The group, which was formed by IBM in 2005 along with dozens of leading corporations, institutions, and technology solution providers, is a global effort to develop a ‘blueprint’ of common solutions for challenges that apply to security, privacy, trust, and corporate compliance issues.

Data Governance is the process by which companies govern appropriate access to their critical data by measuring operational risk and controlling security exposures. The Data Governance Council is working to redefine the management of data governance policy, the impact of policy on business processes and practices, and the enforcement of policy in IT infrastructure, information management, and organizational behavior. Members of the Council are collaborating on ways to address these issues using IBM and business partner solutions and concepts.

“We are delighted to add Continuity Software to our roster of industry leading technology solutions providers, each of whom have demonstrated an impressive level of dedication to solving customer data governance challenges,” said Steven Adler, program director, IBM Data Governance Solutions. “As organizations increasingly recognize the value of their data, responsible data governance is remaining a top priority for enterprises and companies of all sizes.”

“We are honored to have been named to the Data Governance Council and look forward to joining with IBM and the other council members to continue its efforts to help clarify and resolve today’s most prevalent data governance challenges,” said Gil Hecht, founder and CEO, Continuity Software. “Together with the other members on the Council, we will help customers to ensure a consistent and reliable enterprise view of their data in order to improve their confidence in decision making, their ability to comply with internal governance and external compliance regulations, as well as their data security.”
