She said: 'The account will mainly target businesses but I think everyone is becoming more aware of system recovery software in light of recent virus outbreaks.'
She added that the company hoped to make an appointment in the 'very near future', with pitches understood to be taking place this month.
Global Continuity was formed in 1993 as Adam Associates, rebranding last year.
