"For many organizations, a move towards private cloud computing will
enable considerable benefits such as longer-term cost savings, improved
scalability and flexibility and may even introduce time-to-market
advantages," said Eric Sheppard, Research Director, Storage Software, IDC
(www.idc.com). "That said, such a move also introduces new layers of
abstraction and automation within a data center and thus could result in an
additional level of complication and risks. RecoverGuard software helps to
mitigate against this by providing the ability to identify many of the
potential exposures and thereby enabling the IT department to proactively
deal with risks."

"As data and applications are the lifeblood of most enterprise business
organizations, ensuring their protection and availability must be priority
#1. However, designing, deploying and effectively managing a private cloud
infrastructure is a very complicated endeavor - made all the more so because
of all the changes and updates that are made within virtually all data
centers on a continual basis," said Gil Hecht, Founder and CEO of Continuity
Software. "RecoverGuard v5.3 provides private cloud customers with the
peace-of-mind that their data and applications will be fully protected and
available at all times. Even the smallest gap or vulnerability can be found
and eradicated long before it poses any real threat to the business."
