The Why of Asigra


Simon Sinek, in his book, Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action, explains, “People don’t buyGolden Circle what you do. They buy why you do it.” Inspired by biology, Sinek created the Golden Circle which visually represents the three questions all organizations should be asking themselves as seen in the image below.

Most organizations can very easily tell you WHAT their product does. Then they tell you HOW the product is different from the competition. The problem with most organizations is that they don’t know the answer to the question of WHY they exist. At Asigra, not only do we know the answer to WHY we exist, we put it ahead of any other question.


We enable Managed Service Providers, IT Providers, VARS, Cloud Service Brokers and Telcos to add profitable monthly recurring revenues.


We work with channel partners on a global perspective that focuses on different customer segments and vertical markets.


We develop agentless, multi-tenant cloud backup and recovery software that enables Managed Service Providers to offer secure, reliable, manageable and affordable cloud backup managed services through public, hybrid and private cloud deployments to mid-market and enterprises worldwide.

We are in the business of enabling monthly recurring revenues, it just so happens that we make cloud backup and recovery software. Our technology is basically a vehicle that helps increase the value of our channel partners’ businesses by helping them gain margin, reach new geographic markets, ultimately allowing them to service their customers in a much more efficient way in order to successfully maintain the trusted relationship.

Our goal is not to do business with everyone who needs what we make. Our goal is to do business with people who believe what we believe. So if you are a Managed Service Provider and believe that you deserve to add profitable monthly recurring revenues to your organization, we should talk.

New Perspective Offers Cloud Backup Success for Service Providers

Posted by Zaid Rasid in Cloud Backup

Analyst firm Neovise recently published a perspective report titled Choosing a Competitive Cloud Backup Solution for Service Neovise Provider Success. The report discusses the current landscape of the backup and recovery services market and how it has quickly become inundated with generic providers and resellers. To help service providers sort through the multitude of solution offerings, Neovise summarizes strategies and suggestions in choosing the right vendor to successfully deliver backup and recovery services.

Here’s a look at what’s inside this analyst report:

  • Why outdated pricing models are pervasive in the industry and the keys to changing them
  • Why static pricing can lead to more recoveries thus increasing costs, and how to avoid them
  • How service providers can gain competitive advantages by differentiating themselves and by changing their pricing models
  • How service providers can leverage the Asigra Recovery License Model to break free from traditional pricing by decoupling backup and recovery costs
  • How service providers can pass savings onto their customers or use a custom pricing model to improve their own profits
