TORONTO – February 24, 2015 — / — Asigra Inc., a leading Cloud Backup, Recovery and Restore software provider since 1986, today announced that it has been recognized by CRN in the 2015 Channel Chief Awards for the fourth consecutive year. The influential executives on this annual list represent the most powerful leaders in the IT channel who hold direct responsibility for driving growth and revenue for their organizations through their indirect channel partners. Individuals are selected for inclusion based on their track record of channel accomplishments, standing in the industry, dedication to the partner community, and plans for driving future business innovation and channel growth.

“Each year, our editors carefully vet an extensive group of highly accomplished channel executives to highlight those exemplary individuals who earn the mantle of CRN Channel Chief. These executives strive to advance the success and standing of the channel community within their organizations. The 2015 CRN Channel Chiefs lead by example and serve as valuable advocates to help ensure the health and longevity of the IT channel. We applaud their accomplishments and look forward to their continued success,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company.

The 2015 CRN Channel Chiefs have demonstrated their enduring support for the channel by consistently defending, promoting and executing effective channel partner programs and strategies. Eran Farajun, executive vice president for Asigra was named as a 2015 CRN Chief Chief for evangelizing the IT channel’s importance in solution delivery and for orchestrating programs designed to build and grow the company’s worldwide partner presence.

“The need for simple, converged data protection is altering end-user purchasing decisions and the channel is reacting to this change,” said Eran Farajun, Executive Vice President, Asigra. “We have foreseen this and are preparing our partners to displace multiple backup and DR point solutions with an end-to-end platform for physical, virtual, cloud and mobile device data recovery. From a business perspective, our channel programs include extensive marketing support in the form of content assets, ready-made marketing campaigns and qualified sales leads, training and performance-based pricing options, speeding time to revenue and positioning partners for increased marketshare.”

Over the past 12 months, Asigra has begun significant deployments of the company’s innovative Recovery License Model which brings “fair” backup, recovery and DR pricing to the market. Helping partners be more competitive and win more business, the pricing model enables partners to better control backup and recovery costs, even as organizational data grows rapidly. As a result, the Asigra Recovery License Model allows partners/customers who recover less to pay less, and costs are capped to provide a predictable cost structure. Service providers adopting the recovery performance based model have experienced immediate savings of 40% with long term savings expected to reach 60% as adoption accelerates in 2015.
