Continuity Software RecoverGuard Named Finalist For Storage Magazine’s and SearchStorage.com’s 2009 Products of the Year Awards

Disaster Recovery (DR) and High Availability (HA) Monitoring and Management Solution Named Finalist in Backup and Disaster Recovery Software and Services Category

New York, NY and Tel Aviv, Israel (January 25, 2010) – Continuity Software™, a leading provider of disaster recovery (DR) and high availability (HA) management solutions, today announced that its RecoverGuard version 4.0 (v4.0) software has been named a finalist for TechTarget’s Storage magazine’s and SearchStorage.com’s 2009 Products of the Year awards, in the Backup and Disaster Recovery Software and Services category. RecoverGuard v4.0, together with the other finalists, was judged and chosen from the hundreds of nominations received based upon its innovation, ease of installation, integration and manageability, as well as its competitive functionality and overall value/ROI.

“While 2009 was a bleak year economically, it didn’t stifle the continuing technological developments of many enterprise data storage equipment vendors. The 40 finalists for Storage magazine’s and SearchStorage.com’s 2009 Products of the Year awards demonstrate exceptional innovation, functionality and value,” reported TechTarget’s storage editors.

“RecoverGuard stands out in its product category because Continuity Software recognizes that the only constant in a customer’s environment is change. While a single configuration error can derail a recovery or impact availability, these inconsistencies often remain hidden until it is too late. Only RecoverGuard can automatically monitor an environment for hidden data protection or host configuration vulnerabilities, analyze the potential impact, deliver alerts to the problem, and offer detailed instructions for how to correct it. This is a level of insight that you simply can’t get any other way,” said Gil Hecht, Founder and CEO of Continuity Software. “Continuity Software is committed to one thing only: ensuring customer data is protected and business continuity is assured.”

Hecht continued, “We sincerely appreciate being named a finalist for one of the industry’s most prestigious awards, again, by the esteemed editors and reporters of Storage magazine and SearchStorage.com. It is a seal of approval of which we are understandably extremely proud!”

RecoverGuard was awarded the Silver Award in the Backup and Recovery Software category in 2007, and was also named a finalist for the 2008 Storage magazine and SearchStorage.com Products of the Year Awards.
