Momentum for Leading Cloud Backup Software Provider Accelerates as Organizations Seek Cost-Effective Methods of Protecting Critical Data

TORONTO – June 8, 2011 –/– Asigra Inc., a leading Cloud Backupâ„¢, recovery and restore (BURR) software provider since 1986, today announced that it has surpassed 400,000 customer sites under protection by Asigra Cloud Backupâ„¢, increasing its market penetration by 60% percent over the last 12 months. The latest milestone highlights the company’s strong gains with managed service providers and end-user adoption of partner services by small and medium businesses (SMBs), midsize, and large enterprises.

According to analysts, the market for cloud backup services is $2 billion and growing rapidly. Cloud backup continues to gain market traction among SMBs and larger enterprises with offices and workers spanning the globe. As an increasing number of companies seek simpler, more efficient, faster, and cost-effective methods of protecting critical data on storage systems, servers, desktops and laptops, they are discovering the advantages of moving to a cloud backup model for turnkey data protection.

“Simplicity is now a meaningful product differentiator in the backup space. Gone are the days of professional services and hundreds of lines of custom scripting being accepted as normal,” said Dave Russell, Vice President, Storage Technologies and Strategies for Gartner. “Cloud backup provides the simplicity businesses are looking for plus the scale and interoperability that is making it an attractive option for a growing number of organizations.”

This growth is not going unnoticed as technology service providers and resellers are turning their attention toward the Cloud. Recognized widely as a 100% channel-focused organization, Asigra’s commitment to its partners around the globe is unwavering, making the company’s partner ecosystem one of the largest backup service provider networks in the world. For more than a quarter of a century, Asigra has been focused on developing an active partner network of MSPs and VARs whose cloud backup services are powered by Asigra’s software platform.

“Asigra Cloud Backup is the cornerstone of our disaster recovery services which delivers unparalleled value to our customers,” said Tom Dugan, Founder and CTO of Recovery Networks. “Throughout our long relationship with Asigra, the company has demonstrated consistent product leadership and non-stop commitment to providing technical, business and educational resources to help its partners succeed.”

Asigra Cloud Backup is a next-generation backup and recovery platform optimized for public, private or hybrid cloud computing and designed to offer efficiencies unavailable with traditional backup architectures. Asigra’s advanced platform allows users to capture less, ingest less, and store less data thereby reducing the amount of backup software cycles and storage hardware required to deploy and maintain high levels of data protection. Asigra overcomes the limitations of traditional backup products that are unable to handle the exponential data growth, variances in information value and complexities within the IT infrastructure with a highly resilient and elastic platform that adapts to the changing nature of today’s IT environments. This provides unmatched backup efficiency and security as well as the ability to respond to today’s dynamic business challenges.

“Asigra’s benefits are an order of magnitude greater than we have seen with other backup solutions – it is night and day. The product is very intuitive and the reporting is excellent, with daily updates on the backup status. Most importantly, our data is recoverable when and where we need it. We’ve needed to recover critical files since the Recovery Networks’ solution Powered by Asigra was engaged and each time our data was returned safely & quickly,” said Hank Kullman, Network Administrator, Woodcock Washburn, an intellectual property law firm. “In working with Recovery Networks, we are much more comfortable knowing that they manage their own cloud infrastructure with Asigra software and that control and security are assured.”

“The market has sent a resounding message of approval with hundreds of thousands of customer sites globally leveraging Asigra Cloud Backup to protect critical business data,” said David Farajun, CEO, Asigra. “Through relentless innovation that has set the bar for business-class cloud backup and remaining laser-focused on our channel, Asigra’s success has been propelled to the benefit of our customers.”
