MELVILLE, N.Y., May 2, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FalconStor Software, Inc. (Nasdaq:FALC), a market leader in disk-based data protection, today announced that the RecoverTrac™ automated disaster recovery tool was honored as a 2013 Long Island Software Award (LISA) recipient at a ceremony hosted in Garden City last night by the Long Island Software & Technology Network (LISTnet). The award recognizes innovative software solutions developed by Long Island technology companies that advance the software industry. FalconStor's RecoverTrac technology extends the data protection capabilities of FalconStor ® Network Storage Server (NSS) and FalconStor ® Continuous Data Protector (CDP) within physical and virtual environments both locally and remotely. The RecoverTrac tool replaces the time-consuming and error-prone manual process of restoring IT services by automatically recovering multiple machines simultaneously with the press of a button. RecoverTrac technology also allows IT to effectively plan and prepare for outages through non-disruptive disaster recovery testing of various systems without impacting the production environment. "The RecoverTrac tool's selection for the LISA award validates FalconStor's innovation in data protection," said Gary Quinn, chief operating officer at FalconStor Software. "Companies are struggling to optimize the data center to keep the growing amount of information, systems and services continuously available. By limiting costly downtime to minutes rather than hours or days, RecoverTrac technology ensures that businesses can weather any disaster without IT service disruption and the inevitable loss of productivity and revenue." Dedicated to advancing the software and technology community of Long Island, LISTnet sponsors the annual LISA award to showcase the advancements within this industry. The organization promotes collaboration, communication and interaction among the Long Island technology community, driving creative development and partnerships among engineering and software businesses. A devoted member of the Long Island business community, FalconStor has been honored to receive previous LISA awards for its innovative data protection solutions.
