AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Neverfail®, a leading global software company specializing in affordable continuous availability and disaster recovery solutions, today announced the appointment of Martin Mackay as chief executive officer. Mackay is an experienced international software executive with experience across a broad range of companies, including both large global enterprise technology companies and early stage ventures. His appointment signifies the start of a new phase of growth for Neverfail. The company is poised to capitalize on the significant spike in market demand for disaster recovery and business continuity solutions, driven in large part by the mainstream adoption of cloud computing.
