Toronto, Canada, April 30, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- Asigra Inc., a leading cloud backup, recovery and restore software provider since 1986, today announced the company has been recognized as a finalist in the CIR Magazine Business Continuity Awards. The company was named for the advancements in its enhanced cloud-based data protection platform, Asigra Cloud Backup™ Evolved V14, which include unique and effective anti-ransomware and GDPR compliance capabilities.
In its 20-year history, the Business Continuity awards by CIR Magazine have recognized companies that present business continuity, security, resilience and risk professionals whose innovative strategies and industry savvy make them stand out above the rest. The 2019 finalists will be judged by an independent panel of experts for exceptional performance, service metrics, business presence and results in this dynamic industry and will be recognized at a black-tie awards gala dinner and ceremony in London on June 6, 2019.
While proper employee training and preventative IT security measures are necessary to securing the corporate network, the last line of defense is the protection of recovery data from ransomware Attack-Loops™. An Attack-Loop occurs when hackers insert executable code within the organization’s backup data. When an attack occurs, both primary and secondary data are impacted, preventing the possibility of a clean recovery. To hide the code in the backup set, hackers insert the malware into data objects and other techniques which are backed up and stored in the company’s secondary storage repository. After a time-delayed detonation, the company restores a pre-attack generation of data only to realize that the recovery data re-inserts the ransomware into the network, recreating the ransomware for a perpetual loop of attacks.
Asigra Cloud Backup Evolved prevents Attack-Loops from infecting backup data. The software provides effective malware detection for 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 also provides powerful GDPR compliance enablement features, allowing companies to delete data at the request of the consumer citizen, including from backups. With Asigra, businesses can delete backup data to the extent required 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.
“Asigra Cloud Backup Evolved has been widely acknowledged for the industry’s most complete cybersecurity and GDPR compliance powered solution, taking data protection to the next level,” said Eran Farajun, EVP, Asigra. “Recognition in these awards reflects the dedication of our organization in meeting the requirements of managed service providers and the enterprises they serve. We look forward to the final results in June.”
