Cloud Backup and Recovery Software Company Positioned in the Magic Quadrant
TORONTO – July 9th, 2012 — /BackupReview.info/ — Asigra Inc., a leading Cloud Backup, Recovery and Restore (BURR) software provider since 1986, today announced that it has been recognized by Gartner, Inc. in the 2012 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup and Recovery Software. Asigra’s inclusion was based on evaluation of the company’s ability to execute and completeness of vision.
According to the report, “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 and recovery providers to better meet their increasing service levels.”
Over the past year, Asigra has seen considerable traction driven by SMB and enterprise customer deployments and supported by the company’s large eco-system of cloud service providers (CSPs), web hosting and managed service providers (MSPs) and value added resellers (VARs).
“Energy XXI has relied on Backup Technology, powered by Asigra, to backup and recover our information for years,” said Andrew Schaefer, IT Director, Energy XXI, an independent oil and natural gas exploration and production company. “It comes as no surprise to us that Asigra has been chosen for Gartner’s Magic Quadrant. Until we discovered Asigra, we hadn’t used a backup system as reliable or feature rich.”
“Asigra being positioned on the Gartner Magic Quadrant in 2012 further affirms what we have believed for years,” said Mike Colesante, Director of North American Operations, Backup Technology Limited. “Asigra offers the most comprehensive backup and recovery solution on the market and it’s the one we trust to offer to our clients in order to keep their data safe.”
Over the past 12 months, Asigra has achieved significant business milestones, initiated new partner programs, and launched product enhancements to support increasing demand driven by cloud-based infrastructure, virtualized operating environments and data-intensive applications.
In addition to software enhancements, expanded training capabilities and marketing support for the company’s channel, the company has strengthened relationships with its key technology partners, including NetApp, HP and Intel. The company has also increased its footprint globally with new service providers in Asia Pacific and China.
“We are again very pleased with our placement in the Gartner Magic Quadrant. The cloud backup space has continued to grow at an impressive rate as business customers of every size require the ability to recover data from every system and device regardless of operating environment or hardware platform. Asigra provides an inclusive solution that delivers on this requirement to ensure business continuity,” said David Farajun, CEO, Asigra. “The rising tide of Asigra customers benefitting from cloud-based recovery is a direct reflection of the quality of our partner ecosystem as we enable both our partners and their clients with superior technology and support.”
