“Adoption of cloud backup over the past several years has been dramatic. The market has witnessed the rise and fall of many start-ups and the growth of others,” said Mamush Heayie, Founding Analyst, “Based on a variety of factors, including the technology, ease-of-use, dedication to Managed Service Providers (MSPs), company channel program, revenue structure, reputation, support, pricing, value and corporate culture, we have determined that Asigra deserves the leadership role in our latest analysis.”

Companies identified in BackupReview’s Top 25 List of Cloud Backup Enablers are categorized based on their go-to-market strategy and technology format. The categories include pure enablers, enablers and service providers (channel or direct), service providers (channel only), service providers (channel and direct), and service providers (direct only). In the category of pure enabler, software only provider, Asigra received accolades for enabling MSPs to power their own backup service without conflicting services that compete against them. The company’s continued growth and channel program advantages were also cited.

As a pure cloud backup enabler, Asigra develops its own cloud backup software, which is licensed to MSP partners. These MSPs can re-brand the product and sell services under their own banner with branding supported by Asigra to promote deployment. Pure enablers do not provide any cloud backup services themselves and do not own/host any backup vaults – eliminating the potential for channel conflict.

Asigra Cloud Backup™ addresses critical customer requirements for backup and recovery, allowing VARs and MSPs to deliver a much more competitive solution. The advanced cloud backup platform has superior deployment flexibility, allowing it to be installed in the MSP datacenter for public cloud service delivery, as a private cloud at the customer site or a hybrid of the two models. Asigra also provides partners with access to its service provider ecosystem, which consists of hundreds of VARs and service providers worldwide, for inter-network services selling and reselling.

As a way of demonstrating its commitment to all partners—regardless of the partner’s size—Asigra’s pro-rata incentive program allows all Asigra partners to receive the same margins, incentives and benefits, based on growth, contributions and success, that are relative to the size of the partner’s organization. Unlike traditional partner programs, which are typically skewed to benefit only a vendor’s largest partners, Asigra’s partner program is designed to level the playing field by making benefits based on partners’ pro-rata contributions regardless of size. This allows partners of any size to achieve top benefits based on pro-rata contributions related to revenue growth; prospective sales opportunities; technical expertise, and Asigra “brand ambassadorship” to promote awareness in the partner’s own community.

“BackupReview’s recognition of Asigra should be a signal to service providers of our pro-MSP approach and technology leadership in this significant IT growth area,” said Tracy Staniland, Senior Director, Corporate Marketing, Asigra. “Our service providers continue to grow with us in the adoption of Asigra Cloud Backup which now exceeds more than 400,000 customer site deployments worldwide.”
