Sand Hill 50 Represents a Unique Set of Cloud Players that Stand Out from the Crowd

TORONTO – July 8, 2014 — / — Asigra Inc., a leading cloud backup, recovery and restore software provider since 1986 today announced it has been included in the Sand Hill Top 50 Agile and Innovative cloud computing firms for 2014. Asigra received this recognition based on business value and an evaluation that considered its unique value proposition, partner ecosystem, management team, customers, industry influence and buzz.

According to the Sand Hill Group, “Cloud is all about agility and innovation. It is one of the key driving forces behind the incredible value that is being realized in the technology market today. The cloud enables and accelerates major markets such as Big Data, mobile and social. The cloud paradigm is shaking up every layer of the hardware and software stack; nothing is immune to this disruption including security, storage, networking, platforms, applications, management and even the virtualization layer. We are also seeing traditionally conservative vertical markets such as healthcare, automotive and manufacturing embrace cloud technology to leapfrog their competition.”

The Sand Hill Group’sTop 50 Agile and Innovative cloud computing vendor list does not consider companies that run multi-faceted businesses where cloud is but one area of their overall product or service portfolio. Instead, it represents a unique set of players of various sizes and hues that focus on cloud computing. Included categories span SaaS, Paas and IaaS, security, storage and services spaces with vendors that stand out from the crowd with a unique differentiation and value proposition.

Over the past 12 months, Asigra has introduced several technology innovations including the rollout of version 12.2 of Asigra Cloud Backup™. New capabilities in the latest generation software include over a hundred new features across all spheres of functionality including cloud-to-cloud backup for Google Apps, single-pass backup of Microsoft apps (Exchange 2013 and SharePoint 2013), enhanced VDR functionality and new user interfaces. The new features in v12.2 build on Asigra’s promise of enabling recoveries from the core to beyond the edge of the enterprise.

The company also introduced the Asigra Recovery License Model® (RLM) which gives IT professionals the ability to better control backup and recovery costs, even as organizational data grows rapidly. With this approach, fees are based on a Recovery Performance Score that is calculated over a 12-month period (every 6 months in the first year). A waiver is provided for the single largest recovery event in any licensing term and only successful recoveries are included in the calculations. Those who adopt this pricing model can anticipate immediate savings of 40 percent and long term savings up to 70 percent.

“We have made our name helping service providers take advantage of the opportunities the backup market offers while introducing innovative technologies that reduce complexity and costs,” said Eran Farajun, Executive Vice President, Asigra. “Recognition by Sand Hill as a Top 50 Agile and Innovative cloud computing vendor is a reflection of the effort our team puts forth every day. We remain focused on the principles that have driven our success for nearly three decades.”
