TORONTO – December 11, 2013 - Asigra Inc., a leading cloud backup, recovery and restore software provider since 1986 today announced special offers from its Hybrid Cloud Backup Partner Ecosystem to support Symantec customers impacted by the pending shutdown of Backup Exec.cloud. The offers, designed to help Symantec partners and end-users, provide financial incentives, migration services and consulting for the transition to business-class cloud backup and recovery services.

There has never been a better time to upgrade data protection services to an Asigra cloud-based data recovery service provider. Recent research reveals that cloud backup and recovery will be the leading area of cloud services adoption for businesses through 2018.

For Symantec customers affected by the pending shutdown of Backup Exec.cloud, Asigra Partners are available to support a seamless transition of customers to award-winning next-generation cloud backup technology.

Because Asigra does not run, host or operate a cloud backup service, the company relies on its partner ecosystem, comprised of service providers to support the needs of end-users and VARs interested in purchasing or reselling backup services.

  • AssureVault (Ohio) – AssureVault is providing migration services from Symantec Backup Exec.cloud for customers impacted by the shutdown.
