“We are sincerely honored to have been named a Silver Award winner,” said Gil Hecht, Founder and CEO of Continuity Software. “It is an award that would not have been possible without Continuity Software’s exceptional team of DR specialists, software engineers and field engineers who dedicated themselves and worked around the clock on the development of RecoverGuard – today’s leading DR management solution.” He continued, “I would also like to acknowledge Continuity Software’s earliest customers – true innovators and visionaries each – who played a crucial role in helping to refine RecoverGuard into the award winning product it is today.”
RecoverGuard’s Key Features
- IT Discovery and Scanning: The RecoverGuard Data Collection Engine is an automatic, agentless tool utilized to non-disruptively and continuously scan an IT environment and collect critical configuration data from key IT assets, including storage, servers and databases. RecoverGuard then performs a comprehensive dependency analysis in order to build a detailed disaster recovery (DR) topology map, which serves as the foundation for future analysis.
- Gap Detection: Today, the RecoverGuard Gap Detection Engine can identify and report on over 1,600 gaps and vulnerabilities in a customer’s IT infrastructure. RecoverGuard then delivers an alert to the customer in a pre-determined fashion (i.e., via email and/or telephone call), thus allowing the customer to take immediate action, in order to ensure ongoing data protection, disaster recoverability and business continuity.
- Visualization and Reports: The RecoverGuard Visualization and Reporting capabilities allow the customer to drill further down into the IT infrastructure configuration status, as well as the previously discovered data protection and disaster recovery gaps, than ever before. It allows the customer to: learn about SLA compliance and SLA exceptions, produce change and audit reports, review trend analysis of configuration changes, drill-down into the risks detected in the infrastructure, and understand Business Services recoverability status.
- Optimization: The RecoverGuard Optimization Engine leverages the DR Topology Map in order to detect both under and over utilized assets, allowing the customer to fine-tune its resources and drive infrastructure value.
