Asigra Recognized for Business and Technology Innovations in 2014 Report by Cloud Computing Research Firm
Neovise Acknowledges Asigra for Helping Service Providers Differentiate Offerings for More Valuable Services
TORONTO – June 24, 2014 – Asigra Inc., a leading cloud backup, recovery and restore software provider since 1986, today announced that it has been featured by Neovise, a cloud computing research firm, in a 2014 perspective report titled, Choosing a Competitive Backup Solution for Service Provider Success, based on evaluation of the company’s cloud-based data recovery software solution.
According to the report, while backup and recovery services create a profitable opportunity for service providers, the market for these services has become inundated with thousands of generic providers and resellers. Yet, “In today’s densely packed marketplace, choosing the right vendor solution can be the key to successfully selling and delivering backup and recovery services.” To that end, the report examines Asigra Cloud Backup®, an agentless, multi-tenant software solution designed to help service providers deliver secure, reliable backup and recovery services to both SMBs and enterprises worldwide.
“Asigra is an established industry player and offers an enterprise-class backup and recovery software solution in use by hundreds of global service providers,” said Paul Burns, President, Neovise. “With support for any environment—including physical, virtual, mobile and cloud infrastructure—Asigra offers end-to-end data protection that eliminates the need for multiple point solutions. The solution also provides a wide range of flexibility in how service providers configure and deliver their backup and recovery service.”
The report highlights two of Asigra Cloud Backup’s most unique features—the Asigra Recovery License Model® (RLM) and the Asigra Recovery Tracker™. With the Asigra RLM, the company differentiates itself from traditional pricing by decoupling backup and recovery costs. While most cloud backup providers charge customers by the amount of data they back up rather than what they recover, Asigra Cloud Backup enables customers to pay a low set rate for backup, and pay for recovery based on the percentage of data actually recovered annually. This helps to drive operational efficiencies. The Recovery Tracker is an analytics tool that tracks recovery activities and sources of data loss so that businesses can use the information to build more resilient IT infrastructures.
“The backup and recovery space has become increasingly dense, and most providers have a difficult time defining their unique selling advantages,” said Eran Farajun, Executive Vice President, Asigra. “We are pleased that Neovise has recognized how Asigra helps its partners stand out from the crowd, offering the business and technology tools they need to improve the quality and value of their data protection services.”
