Disaster Recovery Management (DRM) Solution Helps Customers Detect and Correct DR Threats Faster and More Easily than Ever Before – Ensuring Regulations Compliance, Data Protection and Business Continuity

Boston, MA and Tel Aviv, Israel (November 19, 2007) – Continuity Software™, a leading provider of Disaster Recovery Management (DRM) solutions, today announced the release of the newest version of its RecoverGuard™ disaster recovery testing and monitoring software. RecoverGuard version 2.0 features significant enhancements to its configuration wizard, dashboard, reporting infrastructure and gap detection engine, which will enable customers to identify and correct disaster recovery (DR) threats, faster and more easily than ever before.

 New in RecoverGuard v2.0:

  •  Configuration Wizard – allows software installation to occur in just one hour. For both customers and channel partners, this means a fast and easy install after initial purchase, as well as in the future (i.e., adding a new datacenter). In addition, the configuration wizard now includes full heterogeneous support (storage, servers and applications), auto-discovery, auto-validation (credentials) and auto-detection (change management).
  • Dashboard – provides IT executives with greater understanding and control of their DR environment via an interactive, comprehensive and easy to use GUI. The dashboard is also highly customizable and can be prioritized by application and/or business function.
  • Reporting Infrastructure – provides IT executives with greater flexibility and faster delivery of ticket notifications, which in turn, means faster issue resolution. Ticket summaries can now be delivered via email on a preset schedule. The reporting format can also be customized (i.e., Microsoft Word, .pdf, and/or Excel spreadsheet), as well as integrated into most reporting/monitoring systems.
  • Gap Detection Engine – Over 1,600 infrastructure gaps and vulnerabilities (i.e., signatures) now recognized.

“RecoverGuard has provided our customers with the ability to conduct most of the DR tests necessary on their data protection infrastructure, in a completely automatic, transparent and cost effective fashion,” said David Nolan, Founder and CEO, Fusion Risk Management, a leader in the IT Risk Program Management and IT Compliance Management markets. “The enhancements will provide customers with even faster and more convenient delivery of insight into their data protection and recovery environments, which will help them to respond to issues proactively – before disaster strikes, thus enhancing overall program maturity to ‘best practices’ levels.”

“The ability to continuously monitor and identify DR gaps will be very appealing to most IT executives,” said John Webster, Principal IT Advisor with Illuminata. “It is therefore very likely that in the not too distant future, disaster recovery management (DRM) solutions, such as RecoverGuard, will become a de facto standard for all business-critical computing environments, much like anti-virus software is today.”

“Based upon the success of the first release of RecoverGuard and the feedback we received from the field, we further simplified and streamlined the product’s deployment process to support the needs of both our channel partners and direct customers, across all technical levels,” said Gil Hecht, Founder and CEO of Continuity Software. “The configuration wizard, dashboard, reporting infrastructure and gap detection engine updates, now standard with every RecoverGuard deployment, provide customers with significant value. Customers can now detect and correct DR vulnerabilities faster and more easily than ever before, and consequently, confidently ensure regulations compliance, data protection and ongoing business continuity.”
