Asigra Takes the Gold in 2014 Product of the Year Awards by Storage Magazine and Searchstorage.com
TORONTO – February 17, 2015 – Asigra Inc., a leading Cloud Backup, Recovery and Restore software provider since 1986, today announced that the company has been named the Backup and DR Category Gold Winnerin the Storage Magazine/Searchstorage.com 2014 Products of the Year competition. Asigra received the award for its enterprise end-to-end cloud backup software solution, Asigra Cloud Backup™ V13, which provides converged data protection for cloud-based disaster recovery and backup of physical, virtual, cloud, and mobile environments.
Asigra Cloud Backup was the highest ranked product among all finalists in the category for both innovation and ease of integration, and additionally received high marks for value and functionality. According to one of the judges in the competition, Asigra Cloud Backup V13 is “innovative in that it makes Asigra’s already full-function product more full function.” The Product of the Year Awards by Storage Magazine and SearchStorage.com included six categories, including backup and DR software, backup hardware, storage management tools, storage system software, storage systems (all-flash systems), and storage systems (disk/hybrid systems).
“Version 13 of the Asigra Inc. Cloud Backup product added backup for data created in the cloud,” noted Storage Magazine/Searchstorage.com editors. “This is a growing concern for many organizations that rely heavily on cloud-based applications, as cloud application providers aren’t responsible for helping users retrieve deleted, edited or corrupted data.”
Asigra was recognized in the awards for a number of industry firsts and capabilities designed to address the complexity and cost of managing and protecting a diverse range of IT environments. Storage Magazine highlighted this by saying: “With this update, Asigra Cloud Backup can provide the same level of protection for data created in the cloud as it does for on-premises data. Users can back up Google Apps, Office 365 and Salesforce.com data to a service provider cloud or bring the data in-house. They can also choose the frequency and granularity of the backups to meet compliance and business continuity needs.”
Examining performance improvements of the solution, the publication cited a number of enhancements in Version 13, including “an automated restore function to repopulate data created in the cloud.” The publication also noted the fact that “Asigra Cloud Backup is the only backup platform that protects all corporate data in a single repository: virtual and physical servers, storage, desktop, mobile devices and now cloud.”
"As one judge noted, Asigra’s agentless architecture was designed for the cloud before the term ‘cloud’ was even a buzzword,” said Asigra CEO, David Farajun. “We are thrilled that Storage Magazine has rewarded our multi-dimensional solution, and the advancements of our latest version software to help organizations improve data protection management.”
