Stockton-on-Tees, UK – February 11, 2016 — / — Onyx Group’s Cloud Backup partner, Asigra, has been nominated as a finalist in the Storage Provider Magazine Product of the Year Awards.

Each year a panel of providers, users, magazine editors and independent experts nominate finalists for the various categories within the awards. The categories are Backup Hardware, Storage Management Tools, Storage System Software, All-flash systems, Disk and Hybrid, and Backup Software, within which Asigra have been selected.

This nomination sees Asigra mentioned alongside some of the biggest names in backup technology including Barracuda, Hitachi, HP, and Oracle. Asigra are delighted to be held in such high regard having commented via their blog “We are very pleased to be included as a finalist in such a high calibre group of solutions.”

The release of Version 13 of their software has seen Asigra solidify its place as one of the leading players in the Backup industry. Having won the TechTarget Quality Award for Top Enterprise Backup in August 2015, this is the fourth consecutive year that Asigra has been selected as a finalist in the Product of the Year awards and they are looking to retain their title having won the award in 2014.

Asigra Cloud Backup Version 13 introduced a new backup management model which makes it easier for users to get the best value from their backup solution. This Backup Lifecycle Management, or BLM, can automatically categorise and prioritise your data dramatically increasing the efficiency of your backups. In real world terms, this could mean that data you don’t update and only keep for regulatory purposes, is not backed up with the same frequency as critical data which might change on a daily or hourly basis.

Following these upgrades, Asigra boasts one of the most complete set of capabilities in the industry with:

  • Support for physical, virtual and cloud environments
  • Non-intrusive and easy to manage agentless architecture
  • High-performance local and remote backup and recovery
  • Long-term data recoverability to meet compliance mandates
  • NIST FIPS 140-2 certified security with AES-256 encryption in-flight and at-rest for compliance readiness
