Asigra Cloud Backup Wins Storage Innovation of the Year In 2020 Data Breakthrough Awards

TORONTO, ON – April 9, 2020 – Leading cloud backup, recovery and restore software provider Asigra Inc., today announced that its flagship data protection software for MSPs, has been named Storage Innovation of the Year in the 2020 Data Breakthrough Awards. The software received this recognition for its unmatched defense of backup data against the rapidly growing threat of ransomware infiltrating backup repositories.

The Data Breakthrough Awards honor excellence and recognize the creativity, hard work and success of data-focused companies, technologies and products. Data Breakthrough is part of the Tech Breakthrough organization, a leading market intelligence and recognition platform for technology leadership and innovation in today’s hottest and most competitive categories of technology. Data Breakthrough Award winners receive well-deserved recognition and third-party validation from an independent organization.

Asigra's winning solution, Asigra Cloud Backup V14, converges data protection and cybersecurity for effective malware detection to ensure safe, secure and reliable backup and data recovery. The platform includes the industry’s first zero-day Attack-Loop preventative technology using bi-directional malware detection, zero-day exploit protection, variable repository naming, and two-factor authentication (2FA) for a full defensive suite against advanced ransomware and other cyber-attacks on backup repositories and the data it stores. The software contains embedded malware engines in the backup and recovery streams to prevent ransomware from getting into backups. The software is unique in its ability to identify a virus, quarantine it and notify the backup administrator. Which makes this a must have tool for Managed Service Providers to addresses modern attack vectors and compliance risks.

“Criminal hackers continue to orchestrate successful attacks with new ransomware variants, even as security vendors struggle to defend businesses. With companies relying on their backups to recover data lost in these attacks, a growing number of strains have included this data as an attack vector," said David Farajun, CEO, Asigra. "Asigra provides the most innovative and complete defense against ransomware so that clean backup data is available to recover and maintain operations.
