Nov 1, 2012

TORONTO – November 1, 2012Asigra Inc., a leading Cloud Backup™, recovery and restore (BURR) software provider since 1986, today announced a "good" rating for overall use case in the October 9, 2012 Gartner report, "Critical Capabilities for Enterprise Endpoint Backup." The report compares 12 critical capabilities of backup and recovery solutions deployed in two common use cases - mobile-workforce-centric versus office-workforce-centric environments. The report can be accessed at http://www.gartner.com/resId=2191815

According to Gartner, "Tablets are increasingly used as data creation and data modification tools. The lack of robust enterprise-level endpoint backup products from major vendors has driven many organizations to allow employees to use often consumer-grade file sync/share services, which could pose serious potential risk to businesses. Over time, we believe enterprise endpoint backup needs to be an integral part of the overall endpoint protection solution, which should offer secure access, secure collaboration, secure backup and DLP1."

In the report, 11 products were rated on a 5-point scale with Asigra receiving a "good" rating. Asigra was included in the report for its enterprise endpoint data protection capabilities of Asigra Cloud Backup. The company's best scores were received in the areas of scalability, device/OS diversity, cloud services support, content variety, data reduction technologies, user experience, administrator experience, security and performance.

"Until employees began bringing their own mobile devices to the enterprise, endpoint backup had been neglected by most organizations," said Pavan Vyas, product marketing manager, Asigra. "With the current BYOD trend comes the need to incorporate endpoint protection into an organization's overall backup infrastructure. With Asigra Cloud Backup™, the company is delivering a powerful and integrated solution to this growing challenge."
