Even better, you get to try it before you buy it! So sign-up for your 30-day free trial and start exploring Catalyst today!

How does Catalyst work?

Catalyst utilizes a series of tools and templates to guide users through developing a full-scale business continuity and IT disaster recovery program customized to their organization's unique needs. Any approved user with access to an internet browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Chrome, FireFox) can access and securely work in Catalyst - regardless of location. Even better, permissions can be set for each individual user, thus controlling what parts of the site each user can access and/or modify.

Is Catalyst hosted or locally installed?

What is the relationship between Catalyst and Avalution?

Avalution designed, developed, and operates Catalyst. The service is 100% owned and managed by Avalution, and all Intellectual Property was created by Avalution's consulting team based on their many years of experience.
