Asigra Named in MSPmentor 250 for Cloud Backup Industry Leadership

Asigra Recognized Among the World’s Top Managed Services Experts for Business Achievements

Toronto, Canada, August 20, 2011 --( Asigra Inc., a leading cloud backup and recovery software provider since 1986, today announced that MSPmentor 250 has included the company as a top industry leader for 2011. Each year, MSPmentor 250 identifies the world’s top managed services experts, entrepreneurs and executives, including professionals who have mastered business leadership, marketing, sales, technology, coaching and other areas within the managed services market. As the only Canadian cloud backup software developer in the MSPmentor 250, this recognition reflects Asigra’s continued momentum as the company sets the standard in cloud backup.

Eran Farajun, the company’s executive vice president, was cited in this year’s list. According to MSP Mentor, “Farajun has built Asigra into a leading storage provider to MSPs. Customer deployments grew from 100,000 sites in 2009 to 400,000 sites in 2011; the partner base has tripled; and Asigra has built relationships with HP, NetApp, Intel and Symantec.”

Cloud computing has seen rapid industry adoption for its ability to retain or improve levels of IT service while cutting costs and simplifying once complex and time consuming processes, easing the workloads of IT professionals. With a 100% channel-focused business model and the only software developer that enables MSPs to own their own cloud, Asigra provides the broadest range of product/service delivery options to support a range of customers, from consumers to the enterprise. While the industry has grown significantly with many new cloud computing startups opening their doors, Asigra is known for a solid business model that is focused on enabling service providers with the delivery of private, public and hybrid cloud backup. Having been in business for over 25 years with many industry firsts, the company provides its partners with what is considered the most feature-rich solution in the cloud backup and recovery market. This leadership has been validated by service providers, customers, industry analysts and press.

Asigra cloud backup features an agentless design which is advantageous for any cloud or virtual machine architecture and better suited for virtual backup than agent-based solutions by eliminating application disruption or downtime during implementation or upgrades. Autonomic healing and recovery validation functions constantly monitor and repair backup files, eliminating data corruption as a serious issue. Asigra Cloud Backup also offers MSPs backup and storage efficiencies unavailable with traditional backup architectures by allowing users to capture, ingest, and store less data. These efficiencies reduce the amount of backup software cycles and storage hardware required to deploy and maintain business-class levels of data protection as a service.

“As one of the most active areas in cloud computing, cloud backup is an application area being used or at least considered by the bulk of today’s managed service providers,” said Farajun. “For companies in the channel seeking a true technology enabler that does not provide competitive services, Asigra offers a pure channel focused business model that puts partners first. This has made 2011 another excellent year for the company and we appreciate MSP Mentor’s recognition of our efforts.”
