Business continuity management solutions are closely related to products in vertical markets, and help to ensure that organizations can deal with internal and external events that would otherwise cause business downtime. Business continuity involves practices, approaches, and planning. However, solution providers also provide services that support organizational preparedness, such as identifying threats, designing frameworks, and implementing plans to measure effectiveness. The business continuity marketplace is rapidly evolving in response to the growing threat of hacks, attacks, and data breaches.
In that spirit, we’ve turned our gaze to the future of business continuity management. Whether its inclusion in a recent analyst report, the release of an innovative new tool, or a bump in venture funding, these are the providers that have earned watch list status for the year ahead.
