Continuity Strengthens its Channel with the Launch of StorageGuard on-Demand
Continuity announced the launch of StorageGuard on-Demand, a storage and backup security solution for MSSPs, penetration-testing experts, cybersecurity consultancies and risk assessment providers. The new solution enables the channel ecosystem to close gaps in their existing cybersecurity risk assessment capabilities by providing visibility into their clients' storage and backup security posture, while assessing their ransomware readiness. 

"Continuity's StorageGuard on-Demand is a key component of our Cyber Security portfolio," said Michael Adams, Northeast Leader - Digital Infrastructure, Converge Technology Solutions. "We rely on the solution to assess and remediate vulnerabilities in our customers' storage and backup systems. It's a highly effective tool that reduces their exposure to cyberattacks - ransomware in particular."

According to Gartner's 2022 Audit Plan Hot Spots report, "Ransomware is the top key risk area that audit departments anticipate focusing on in 2022."  Gartner recommends companies "Review policies that govern data storage, including the protection, retention and deletion of organizational data."

Continuity's StorageGuard provides continuous protection of storage and backup systems, and is used by blue chip companies worldwide. StorageGuard on-Demand is a new offering purpose-built to extend and integrate on-demand risk detection of storage and backup systems into channel-driven risk assessments. Once StorageGuard on-Demand completes a scan, it generates and incorporates an analysis of the detected security misconfigurations and vulnerabilities into the channel partner's risk assessment, along with remediation guidance for each risk detected.

"StorageGuard on-Demand will help MSSPs, cybersecurity consultancies and risk assessment providers to eliminate storage and backup blind spots in their risk assessment offerings while ensuring these critical systems can withstand a ransomware attack," said Gil Hecht, CEO of Continuity. "It also generates a new revenue stream for channel partners that complements their ransomware assessment and remediation services."
