Asigra Named in 2015 Gartner Magic Quadrant for 5th Consecutive Year

Jul 7, 2015

TORONTO – July 7, 2015 - Asigra Inc., a leading cloud backup, recovery and restore software provider since 1986, today announced that it has been recognized in the June, 2015 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup Software and Integrated Appliances1, based on the company’s completeness of vision and ability to execute.

For the 5th year in a row, Asigra has been placed in the Gartner Magic Quadrant on Enterprise Backup Software and Integrated Appliances. 2015 has been an active year for Asigra and saw the introduction of several new capabilities designed to support both channel partners and end-users. In February, 2015, Asigra introduced version 13 of its flagship data protection software featuring end-to-end data protection of physical, virtual, cloud and mobile computing environments. The converged data protection platform reduced full data recovery time to as little as five minutes and included major technology updates including the addition of Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service enablement for managed service providers (MSPs). In June of this year, Asigra unveiled its Converged Data Protection Appliance for MSPs. The plug-and-play appliances enable faster cloud backup service deployment and a shorter payback cycle for service providers entering or expanding their portfolio in cloud backup.

As stated in the report, “By 2016, 20% of organizations, up from 12% today, will employ only snapshot and replication techniques, abandoning traditional backup/recovery for the majority of their data; by 2017, the number of enterprises using cloud as a backup destination will double, up from 12% today. And by 2019, there will be a 60% increase in the number of large enterprises eliminating tape for operational recovery1.”

With a greater number of enterprises moving toward cloud backup, the importance of selecting the right service provider and technology platform will become paramount concerns. Enterprises are advised to base their qualifications on service level requirements including the ability to protect all targeted data sets, provide data recovery performance options, deliver excellent customer service, adhere to compliance mandates, and ensure information security and data sovereignty. The service provider must be able to meet the business requirements of the customer and adapt to their evolving technology needs.

Asigra Cloud Backup™ is the first converged data protection software to provide a single, integrated approach for managing data recovery across locations and computing platforms. Its complete range of tools and capabilities ensure that customers can securely protect larger volumes of data while using fewer network and storage resources and without the need to deploy multiple point solutions. Architected for reliable and efficient performance, as well as compatibility with public, private and hybrid cloud architectures, the Asigra solution provides:

  • Maximum security, flexibility, manageability and affordability
  • NIST FIPS 140-2 certified and AES 256 data encryption at rest and in flight
  • Protection of all customer data to a single scalable repository – regardless of data source location
  • Software and hardware platform agnostic to avoid compatibility issues
  • Integrated VM replication and mobile endpoint geo-location/remote wipe capabilities

“We believe this achievement reflects our momentum in the market and acceptance by a growing number of partners and customers who recognize the value of Asigra Cloud Backup,” said David Farajun, CEO, Asigra. “We appreciate Gartner’s acknowledgement of our ability to execute and completeness of vision and look forward to maintaining the high standards we have set for the company. Asigra will continue the development of product and business innovations and strengthen efforts to enhance the company’s presence as we grow operations globally.”
