5 Reasons to Select an Asigra Partner for Your Backup and Recovery Needs

Posted by Ani Yildirim

Recent research shows that more than 77% of enterprises indicate their data is growing at a rate of 5-25% annually, andAsigra 52% of them are backing up more than 50TB of data. Businesses depend on their data and the safety of data depends on sophisticated strategies for backup, recovery and restore. Selecting a cloud backup, recovery and restore platform is a major decision. As the importance and value of data grows, it’s vital to work with a service provider that has the technology and experience to adapt to complex enterprise IT environments’ needs.

Over 1,000,000 sites are powered by Asigra Cloud Backup™ through our worldwide partner network. Here are the 5 reasons why you should select an Asigra Partner for your backup and recovery needs.

Security: Asigra’s agentless architecture does not rely on vulnerable agents that need to be installed on each machine. This eliminates open ports on your firewall for all backup sources, dramatically enhancing security by removing points of attack inherent with agent-based architectures. Asigra's data encryption modules are FIPS 140-2 certified by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology. Asigra ensures only you have access to and control of your data trough customer-controlled encryption key and authentication.

Affordability: Pay for what you recover. Backup costs are growing just as fast as data. Research done by Enterprise Strategy Group found that 84% of the companies recover less than 20% of their data but they are paying for 100% recovery. The new Asigra Recovery License Model ® (RLM) separates the cost of backup from the cost of recovery, drastically reducing the cost of data protection. Asigra’s fair recovery-based pricing model delivers immediate and long-term savings by allowing you to pay based on how little data your organization actually recovers. Asigra’s solution also includes a proprietary recovery analytics engine called Asigra Recovery Tracker™, that empowers storage and backup admins to better understand their organization’s recovery processes and trends.

Reliability: Asigra’s powerful autonomic healing and validation restore capabilities give you the confidence that your data is always recoverable when you need it. The Recovery and Restore Assurance (R2A) feature covers the entire digital footprint of the enterprise ranging from storage, servers, desktops, laptops and mobile devices of all kinds.

Manageability: Support all devices with a single platform. Asigra delivers continuous control with low-touch manageability. With Asigra, you get a comprehensive unified view of your systems, users and devices, to simplify backup across all your enterprise environments with a common repository of all backup data. You can extend recovery protection to the public cloud on applications like Salesforce.com and Google Apps. As your needs evolve, you can choose the cloud architecture or deployment model that best suits your business needs, and easily migrate.

Flexibility: Recover your data from anywhere. Asigra Cloud Backup is designed for private, hybrid and public cloud architectures and offers flexibility in how you protect data - file-based or image-based, physical or virtual environments, from servers to smartphones and across all hardware and software platforms. With Asigra Cloud Backup, you have the power to decide the best ways to protect and recover your information.
