Asigra Cloud Backup Evolved V14 Recognized in Cybersecurity Excellence Awards

Asigra Cloud Backup Evolved V14 Recognized in Cybersecurity Excellence Awards
Toronto, Canada, March 12, 2019 --( Asigra Inc., a leading cloud backup, recovery and restore software provider since 1986 today announced that the company’s flagship data protection platform has been named in the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards. Asigra was acknowledged for its zero-day exploit protection of backup data with bi-directional ransomware detection and compliance with General Data Protection Requirement (GDPR) Articles 6, 17, 25, and 32.

The Cybersecurity Excellence Awards recognize companies, products, and individuals that demonstrate excellence, innovation, and leadership in information security. The industry’s best professionals and organizations were chosen based on the impact their products and services have on the industry as well as open voting by members of the cybersecurity community.

Asigra Cloud Backup Evolved version 14 converges data protection and IT security for powerful anti-malware protection that ensures safe, secure and reliable backup and data recovery. The enhanced platform includes the industry’s first zero-day Attack-Loop preventative technology using bi-directional malware detection, zero-day exploit protection, variable repository naming, and two-factor authentication (2FA) for a full defensive suite against advanced ransomware and other cyber-attacks on backup data.

Asigra’s Cloud Backup Evolved is the first backup platform of its kind to deliver comprehensive GDPR compliance enablement. Because the regulation requires companies to delete data at the request of individuals, including backup data, many organizations have been challenged with satisfying this requirement efficiently. The long term retention of image based backups common with many backup platforms requires manually intensive processes to locate specific information within the repository. With Asigra Cloud Backup Evolved, businesses can delete backup data efficiently and in any generation to meet GDPR compliance requirements. It is then possible to provide consumers with a certificate as evidence, forming part of an Effective Response to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) in Europe.

“The benefits and challenges of a global digital business are here, with ubiquitous access to corporate IT resources and a growing volume of legislation to address the protection of privacy data,” said David Farajun, CEO, Asigra. “The Cybersecurity Excellence Awards recognition of our approach to securing backup data is validation of our ability to ensure that all enterprise security and compliance requirements are successfully achieved.”
