Asigra is Positioned on the 2012 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup/ Recovery Software

Posted by Doug Ko

Gartner recently issued its 2012 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup/Recovery Software, where Asigra is placed in the Niche Quadrant.

Gartner LogoIn this new report, Gartner recognizes the transformations occurring in this market to address the significant challenges organizations are facing in adequately protecting their data.

"Gartner has responded to the changing enterprise backup/recovery landscape with a more comprehensive evaluation tool that better reflects the current and evolving state of the market"

"Organizations worldwide are seeking ways to easily, quickly and cost-effectively ensure that their data is appropriately protected. Organizations are also voicing the opinion that backup needs to improve a lot, not just a little. The rising frustration with backup implies that the data protection approaches of the past may no longer suffice in meeting current, much less future, recovery requirements. As such, companies are willing to adopt new technologies and products from new vendors, and have shown an increased willingness to switch backup/recovery providers to better meet their increasing service levels."*

Asigra is honored to be included in this report, and positioned in the top right hand corner of the Niche Quadrant.

Over the past several years, Asigra has added powerful new features to its cloud backup software platform for public, private and hybrid cloud deployment. Key attributes include:

  • Agentless backup architecture - Asigra does not require any agents to be installed on machines or applications that need protection, instead it reaches out over the network to back-up operating systems, file systems, and applications, using industry-standard programming interfaces. 
  • Military-Grade Security - Due to the multi-tenant nature of the cloud environment, security becomes a paramount concern of anyone trying to utilize the cloud for backing up and recovering their data. Asigra ensures that backup data is not at risk of breach with encryption in-flight and at-rest from cradle to grave. To validate this, Asigra is the first major backup vendor to achieve the NIST FIPS 140-2 security certification.
  • Backup Lifecycle Management with Tiered Recovery - Operationally critical data requires more frequent backups on higher performance devices. Less critical backups are relegated to less expensive, lower performance devices. Asigra allows users to align the value of information with the cost of protecting it and provides multiple tiers of recovery for maximum flexibility in determining the right mix between fast and cost-effective data recovery.
  • Tablet and Smartphone Support - A Cloud Backup, Recovery and Restore-based mobile client that's specifically built for tablets and smartphones, enabling quick backup and recovery through intuitive wizards and options. It's so efficient and easy to use that users can backup and recover their own data.
