Recognized for the sixth year in a row as a category leader in backup and disaster recovery (DR) software, Asigra Cloud Backup™ was selected for innovations in cloud-to-cloud SaaS backup.

The 10 finalists in the backup and disaster recovery software and services category for the Storage Magazine/ Products of the Year award illustrate the variety of products available for data protection today. Products eligible for consideration in the backup and disaster recovery (DR) software category include backup and recovery software, cloud backup and recovery services, DR, snapshot and replication software, electronic vaulting and archiving software. Asigra was recognized as one of the industry’s top cloud backup products and stood out from the competition for product innovation in the recovery of SaaS application data.

According to the editors of Storage Magazine and, “The latest version of Asigra Cloud Backup adds Microsoft Office 365 cloud-to-cloud backup to and Google Apps. Backup data from these applications can be integrated with backup data enterprise-wide, and stored both locally and off-site for DR purposes. The software also offers an automated restore function to repopulate data created in the cloud for restore.”

With support for Microsoft Office 365, Asigra delivers a single, integrated approach to cloud-based data recovery that provides the flexibility to pick and choose the right data protection level, at a cost that is aligned to the value of the data being protected. This approach eliminates the need for a complicated mix of point solutions or separate processes to backup data in the cloud. Administrators can easily configure, manage and schedule all backup activities from the same intuitive user interface and will no longer have to manually maintain various versions of flat backup files. Agentless Asigra Cloud Backup provides the same secure, reliable backup and recovery protection for Microsoft Office 365 as it does for on-premise data centers for comprehensive data protection.

Asigra’s next generation software gives organizations the most comprehensive backup and restore capability for, Google Apps and Microsoft Office 365. Administrators can fully automate protection of these applications, scheduling the backup activities, selecting the number of generations of the information that needs protection, setting retention rules and even deciding different backup frequencies for different sets of data. With Asigra, all cloud application backup data is integrated in the same single repository as all other corporate data, providing confidence in the ability to recover lost data on demand.

“Unknown to many IT professionals is the fact that data in an external SaaS cloud such as, Google Apps or Microsoft Office 365 is still the responsibility of the organization to ensure protection of the data,” said David Farajun, CEO, Asigra. “We are happy that the experts at Storage Magazine/ agree with us and appreciate recognition as a top award contender for our focus on this important area.”
