CYA Technologies Releases CYA SmartRecovery for the EMC® Documentum® 6.5 Enterprise Content Management Platform

SHELTON, CT--(Marketwire - December 16, 2008) - CYA Technologies today announced the availability of CYA SmartRecovery™ version 5.1 supporting the EMC® Documentum® 6.5 enterprise content management platform. This new release works transparently to protect the information assets associated with the Documentum Process Suite, Federated Record Services (FRS), and other Documentum 6.5 applications from logical information loss, which can cause compliance risk, lost revenue, reduced shareholder value, lost productivity, and in extreme cases, business shutdowns.

Logical failures, which account for 80% of all information loss,* can render one, several, or thousands of repository objects useless, and are caused by common occurrences such as administrative, programmatic, and user errors, malfeasance, and metadata corruption. CYA SmartRecovery helps organizations avoid the potentially disastrous consequences of logical loss by performing hot, synchronous backups of the Documentum repository, which enable a single administrator to quickly recover granular objects back to their original states in the docbase without taking EMC Documentum offline. CYA SmartRecovery 5.1 effortlessly ensures the integrity and recoverability of all the content, audit trails, workflows, and other metadata within the Documentum 6.5 repository -- including that which is created by EMC Documentum Forms Builder, Documentum Web Publisher Page Builder, and other applications new to Documentum.

EMC Documentum customers that are upgrading to Documentum 6.5 can also leverage CYA SmartRecovery to ensure a successful and efficient data migration. The solution's Data Integrity Module identifies repository corruptions so that they may be rectified prior to the data conversion, assuring that all information will be accurate and accessible post-upgrade. CYA SmartRecovery, which is "Designed for EMC®" accredited, has been validated on the Documentum 6.5 platform by EMC, which demonstrates that it has met a comprehensive set of criteria for testing and quality integration with EMC Documentum 6.5. The solution can be deployed out-of-the-box in as little as three days.

"Given the current state of the economy, companies need to fully protect every asset they possess, and most cannot afford to incur the costly consequences of logical information loss," said Wayne Crandall, president and CEO of CYA Technologies. "We're pleased that CYA SmartRecovery can now help companies using EMC Documentum 6.5 to maximize their competitive advantage by assuring that the information assets within their repositories are continuously accessible and accurate. CYA SmartRecovery provides the 'insurance' against compliance risk, productivity loss, and negative brand exposure that EMC Documentum customers need in today's tough economic climate."

CYA SmartRecovery also works seamlessly with enterprise solutions such as EMC NetWorker, IBM Tivoli Storage Manager, and Symantec Veritas NetBackup to enable companies to achieve recovery point objectives (RPOs) of as little as 15 minutes in the event of a disaster or full system failure. CYA SmartRecovery is also available for EMC Documentum versions 5.3 and 6.0. For more information, visit or call 203.513.3111 x501.
