TORONTO – February 4, 2014 – Asigra Inc., a leading cloud backup, recovery and restore software provider since 1986 today announced that Asigra Cloud Backup™ v12.2 has been ranked among the Top 10 Enterprise Cloud Backup Solutions in a new report by Business-Software.com. The report is a comparison of leading enterprise backup software and service solutions with Asigra noted for end-to-end capabilities and support for physical, virtual and cloud-based application data.
The Top 10 Enterprise Cloud Backup Solutions report is produced by Business-Software.com, an IT resource for business software reviews, expert advice, in-depth articles and white papers. In this report, multiple capabilities were considered as part of the judging criteria, including the ability to support physical, virtual and cloud/SaaS platforms, deduplication, continuous data protection, snapshots, reporting and analytics and support for on-premise installation and management. Asigra Cloud Backup v12.2 was one of the few solutions with capabilities across all areas.
The report stated, “To keep all data secure, choose an enterprise backup solution that manages data on both physical and virtual servers and covers a vast range of data sources such as mobile devices, desktops, laptops and enterprise applications. While most solutions support various data files, be sure that your software is equipped to handle the types and volume of data your company uses. You should also search for a solution that offers de-duplication, continuous data protection (CDP) and a centralized management platform or console. Data recovery functionality can be vital in the event of major data loss, so pick software that retains snapshots of your networks, providing comprehensive data protection without disrupting systems. Since companies generate growing amounts of data on various devices and platforms, full scalability is a must.”
With Asigra Cloud Backup, a single integrated platform covers the entire enterprise against all data-loss scenarios. Whether users need to protect data on endpoint devices such as desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones, or protect critical servers and enterprise applications regardless of the IT platform, Asigra provides a complete range of capabilities for the enterprise. With respect to security, the company uses AES-256 encryption in-flight and at-rest. Additional assurance is provided with FIPS 140-2 certification by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology. Finally, Asigra Cloud Backup includes powerful autonomic healing and validation restore capabilities so that data is always recoverable when needed.
