Asigra to Deliver Keynote Presentation on the Movement of Sensitive Data to the Cloud at IT Focus in Toronto

Nov 20, 2012

TORONTO – November 20, 2012 – Asigra Inc., a leading Cloud Backup™, recovery and restore (BURR) software provider since 1986, today announced it will deliver a keynote presentation at the upcoming IT Focus Networking Event in Toronto on Thursday, November 22nd. At the event, Asigra will review questions over sensitive data protection in the Cloud and how technology is addressing concerns in a presentation titled, "Is the Enterprise Ready to Start Moving Sensitive Data to the Cloud?"

Organizations are responsible for volumes of sensitive customer data and must have the ability to protect this information wherever it resides, whether in the data center or the Cloud. Governmental and corporate mandates in addition to public assurance that information is held in strict confidence remain among the top priorities in today's risk-averse IT atmosphere. The main challenges from the perspective of backup and recovery includes the ability to enforce strict data privacy requirements, respond to new reporting, comply with longer data retention times and meet compliance mandates to enforce rigorous standards for data integrity and protection. During this presentation, Asigra will address these challenges and review the milestones made in these areas while providing an outlook on what is to come in 2013.

"Preventing unauthorized access to sensitive enterprise data, regardless of the IT platform, should be a top priority for organizations, especially in highly regulated industries such as healthcare, financial services and government," said Tracy Staniland, VP, Corporate Marketing for Asigra. "Asigra has been a technology leader in this area, helping organizations more securely and confidently leverage the Cloud for over 26 years. We are happy to share our expertise and provide guidance on industry best practices."
