• Complete protection of multi-location data center systems, servers, desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones under a single platform and management console.
• Apple iPhone, Apple iPad and Android device backup to an Asigra-enabled cloud using a simple one-click user interface.
• Agent-less backup for a broad range of data types, including Microsoft and Linux file systems, Oracle and SQL Server databases, Microsoft Exchange email, and IBM iSeries folders.
• The security of backup and restore operations were verified via an audit of Asigra’s FIPS 140-2 certification and examination of the encrypted backup data set.
• Asigra Cloud Backup takes advantage of increased bandwidth and performance of 10 Gigabit Ethernet networks.
• Centralized license management and monitoring to simplify and automate licensing across a variety of platforms and applications.
• Single pane of glass management of backup infrastructure activity, health, capacity and license usage.
• Confirmation of multi-tenant capabilities and the ability to manage customer specific billing.

According to the report, “More and more organizations are struggling with the cost and complexity of maintaining multiple backup solutions. Whether through acquisition or out of necessity, different solutions are often used to protect different types of data. ESG Lab has confirmed a single solution from Asigra can be used to protect an amazingly broad set of data types from mission-critical Oracle servers, to business-critical Microsoft applications, to laptops and iPhones.”

“Asigra Cloud Backup is a flexible solution designed to quickly respond to changing business needs without incurring downtime,” said Brian Garrett, Vice President, ESG Lab. “The platform’s wizard-driven controls and centralized management capabilities help IT understand and respond quicker to the evolving needs of the business while reducing risk in the process.”

“The results of this report align with the feedback we receive daily from the hundreds of service providers in our channel ecosystem,” said Kent McIntosh, Head of Product Marketing & Strategic Market Development, Asigra. “While alternative solutions require service providers to exert additional management time and costs, Asigra v11 is the only cloud backup platform that covers the entire sphere of IT, allowing providers to refocus on strategic business objectives rather than the process of backup.”
