Continuity Opens US Offices

BOSTON -- Continuity Software, a leading provider of Disaster Recovery Management (DRM) solutions, today announced it has launched operations in the United States, with a Boston headquarters office and a New York sales office, to support the data protection needs of U.S. customers. In conjunction with the U.S. company launch, the company formally introduced its RecoverGuard™ software, replication infrastructure gaps and configuration vulnerabilities detection solution.

RecoverGuard software is a groundbreaking Disaster Recovery Management (DRM) solution that detects gaps (i.e., configuration errors) and infrastructure vulnerabilities in real-time, in order to eliminate the risk of data loss or corruption in the face of a natural or manmade disaster. RecoverGuard’s unique ability to understand the relationships and interdependencies between IT infrastructure elements and the disaster recovery (DR) replication environment ensures that all production configuration changes are successfully applied to the remote hot site. With RecoverGuard, customers can now automate and validate the most critical aspect of their DR environment – ultimately ensuring their business protection goals.

"The business risk associated with non-recoverable recoveries is almost incalculable,” said Steve Duplessie, founder and senior analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG). “If standard local backup recoveries fail at a rate of 20% plus, remote recoveries are probably two-to-three times that - and finding out during a real-time crisis is no way to live.”

"Until now, there has simply been no realistic visibility into a full remote recovery operation. With all the interdependencies and such limited test capabilities, even the largest companies in the world really don't know if they will be able to recover from a significant outage,” added Bob Laliberte, analyst, ESG. “Products such as Continuity Software's RecoverGuard are long overdue, and should help shine light on the faults that keep critical recoveries from happening, well before a crisis."
