     "The majority of our clients have deployed the most advanced
 replication and snapshot technologies available from EMC, HDS and NetApp,
 as well as other leading data protection and disaster recovery solutions.
 However, we have all been aware for some time that testing the environments
 just a handful of times each year is simply not sufficient. Up until
 recently, there were few alternatives. Certainly, testing on a weekly,
 monthly or even quarterly basis would be cost prohibitive," said Zvi
 Bruner, Chief Technology Officer (CTO), Malam-Team. "RecoverGuard's ability
 to continually test DR environments and immediately report any gaps or
 vulnerabilities, will be viewed as a valuable and cost effective method to
 guarantee business continuity by most of our clients. So far, the response
 has been impressive. In fact, we already have one government customer that
 has fully deployed RecoverGuard in its production environment and a number
 of others in both the government and private sectors that are currently in
 various phases of testing and deployment."
     "Today's sophisticated data protection and disaster recovery
 environments are large, complex, heterogeneous entities that include a
 multitude of interdependencies between production and DR sites. Even the
 most minor change that takes place at the production datacenter, that is
 not implemented appropriately at the remote site, can lead to devastating
 consequences. Continuity Software's DRM solutions ensure that all gaps and
 vulnerabilities are found instantaneously and the appropriate personnel are
 notified so that they can immediately remedy the situation," said Gil
 Hecht, Founder and CEO, Continuity Software. "We are sincerely honored to
 have been selected by Malam-Team as an addition to their robust portfolio
 of end-to-end IT solutions. Their high level of professional standards and
 commitment to quality is without question -- earning them the enviable
 position of trusted advisor to most of the leading IT organizations in the
 country. We look forward to a long-lasting and mutually beneficial
