TORONTO – February 24, 2014 - Asigra Inc., a leading cloud backup, recovery and restore software provider since 1986 today announced that Eran Farajun, EVP for Asigra has been recognized by Computer Reseller News (CRN) magazine in the 2014 Channel Chief Awards for the third consecutive year. This prestigious list of the most powerful leaders in the IT channel recognizes those executives directly responsible for driving channel sales and growth within their organization, while evangelizing the importance of the channel throughout the entire IT Industry.
“We are pleased to highlight the many executives throughout the industry who work tirelessly to advance the standing of the channel community within their organizations. The CRN Channel Chief honorees lead, inspire and engage peers and serve as valuable advocates to help ensure the health and longevity of the channel within the IT industry. We applaud their efforts and look forward to their continued success,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company.
CRN Channel Chiefs were selected by the CRN editorial team based on channel experience, program innovations, channel-driven revenue, and public support for the importance of IT channel sales. Asigra was noted for the company’s 100% focus on the channel the company’s recently announced recovery-based pricing model for backup and recovery software. The new model has received praise throughout the industry as a game-changer with both partners and customers acknowledging its advantages.
Until recently, channel providers have been without options to capacity-based pricing for backup and recovery where costs increase as data volumes grow - even if organizational recovery rates remain constant. In support of service provider efforts to remain competitive, the Asigra Recovery License Model® (RLM) meets the expectation of technology buyers that backup and recovery pricing should reflect the business value provided. With this approach, customers who recover less to pay less, and costs are capped so customers never pay to recover more than 25% of their data. Organizations adopting this model can expect immediate savings of 40% and long term savings of 60% to 70%.
“Over the last several years we have put significant resources into our channel programs and recently spearheaded efforts to roll out the company’s recovery-based pricing model throughout our global partner ecosystem,” said Eran Farajun, Executive Vice President, Asigra. “We are committed to listening to our partners as it is their feedback and insights that help fuel enhancements to our program. We are pleased to see continued positive response from partners and thank the editors at CRN Magazine for their recognition of our efforts.”
