Jul 6, 2012

TORONTO – July 6th 2012 - Asigra Inc., a leading Cloud Backup™, recovery and restore (BURR) software provider since 1986, announced that SICL, an award-winning technology company specializing in IT infrastructure solutions and services, is protecting data for their corporate, SME and public sector market clients with SICL Safe, powered by Asigra.

"We chose to power our backup and recovery solution with Asigra Cloud Backup because of its flexibility and reliability," said Cliff Fox, Managing Director of SICL. "We considered alternative solutions, but Asigra was the only one we found that offers a superior level of speed, security and compliance to our clients."

Asigra Cloud Backup is positioned in the 2012 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup/Recovery Software. As a storage hardware agnostic solution with an agentless architecture, Asigra Cloud Backup creates considerable time savings for the backup and recovery process. As the only cloud backup software platform to be NIST FIPS 140-2 Certified and with the highest levels of encryption, Asigra Cloud Backup helps SMBs and Enterprises meet compliance requirements such as HIPAA, Basel III and Sarbanes Oxley.

"Protecting vital data across an organization is a formidable challenge," said Fox. "With the rise in mobility devices, such as laptops and smartphones that challenge becomes even more difficult, as important data is stored on these devices. However, many organizations still rely on a fragmented and often ineffective policy of tape devices, manual routines and off-site storage. Without the proper backup measures in place, business continuity can be threatened. Our solution, SICL Safe, powered by Asigra, allows all of our clients to sleep better at night, knowing that their data is protected and can be easily restored if the need arises."

According to recent research conducted by TechValidate, 62% of enterprises are looking for a new approach to their current backup and modernization approach in the next 12 to 18 months, with 66% looking at cloud backup and recovery.

SICL Safe, powered by Asigra, is a fully managed service that can be specifically tailored to meet business requirements. SICL Safe incorporates the management of critical data, fast restores, tiered storage, archive, encryption plus data retention polices across the entire organization, including multiple operating systems and devices.
