TORONTO and TEL AVIV, Israel – March 13, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — Asigra Inc., a leading cloud backup, recovery and restore software provider and Secret Double Octopus, the pioneer of Password-Free Enterprise Authentication, announced today their partnership to provide a critical layer of authentication to Asigra’s advanced anti-ransomware technology, preventing malware threats from silently targeting backup data.

Protecting enterprise data is critical, requiring frequent cloud backups to guard against ransomware attacks. One of the main sticking points with cloud-based data repositories is that sophisticated cyber-attackers can inject malware into a system prior to data backups so that data protection and recovery streams become infected. Asigra’s cloud solution protects against such cyber-attacks, but users still have the ability to use credentials (login and password) in order to access backup repositories in the cloud.

“Cybersecurity protection is now a legal requirement for businesses reliant on their backups to ensure operational uptime in the event of a catastrophic malware or ransomware attack,” said Des Lekerman, Chief Executive, TIG. “No other data protection platform on the market matches the cybersecurity defenses Asigra has in place and the partnership with Secret Double Octopus is further confirmation of the company’s intent to protect customer data.”

Secret Double Octopus’ Authenticator adds a security layer to Asigra’s zero-day Attack-Loop preventative technology that eliminates the need for passwords to access backup data in the cloud. Octopus Authenticator uses secret sharing algorithms to take the vulnerabilities caused by credentials out of the security equation, ultimately providing password-less data protection and eliminating the ability of hackers to execute ransomware attacks that delete backup repositories altogether.

Asigra Cloud Backup Evolved provides the highest level of anti-ransomware protection available for backup data, converging data protection and IT security for effective malware detection that is safe, secure and reliable. The enhanced platform includes production proven zero-day Attack-Loop preventative technology using bi-directional malware detection, zero-day exploit protection and variable repository naming. Combined with the platform’s two-factor authentication (2FA) and Secret Double Octopus’ Authenticator for cloud-based backup repositories, Asigra Cloud Backup Evolved provides a full defensive suite against advanced ransomware and other cyber-attacks on backup data.

“Asigra understands that in today’s hostile cyber environment, keeping client data secure in the cloud has to be top priority,” said Eran Farajun, Executive Vice President at Asigra. “We believe that password-less authentication is the best option for our clients and partnering with Secret Double Octopus allows us to provide the highest level of authentication protection possible.”

“In today’s world passwords can’t truly protect critical data and applications,” said Raz Rafaeli, CEO of Secret Double Octopus. “We are excited to partner with Asigra and its affiliates to offer authentication-as-a-service protecting critical data using our password-less strong authentication solution.”
