••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

Its Backup Optimization with Deduplication products include the Virtual Tape Library (VTL) and File-interface Deduplication System (FDS). The Company's data protection and storage virtualization solutions are designed to provide IT administrators and end users to recover data easily to any point in time in the event of hardware failure, data corruption, deletion, or catastrophic site-level disaster, allowing rollback or failover to a known, good, immediately useable state to ensure that businesses maintain reliable access to their vital applications, and to facilitate accurate data recovery while minimizing downtime. Application-level integration allows for maintaining space-efficient copies of the data that are generated with complete transactional and point-in-time integrity.
