Leading Cloud Backup and Recovery Software Provider Doubles Number of Sites Protected in 14 Months and Surpasses 500 Partner Relationship Landmark

TORONTO – September 28, 2009 – Asigra Inc., a leading cloud backup and recovery software provider, today announced that it has exceeded 100,000 sites currently protected by the Asigra Hybrid Cloud Backup™ platform. This doubles the number of sites protected by Asigra in just over a year’s time, proving that the company continues to extend its leadership position in cloud backup and recovery for both hosted and on-premise environments with technology perfected over more than 20 years. Supporting this growth in deployment, Asigra has reached the 500 partner milestone, highlighting business traction with both channel and technology partners worldwide.

“Asigra’s success comes from significantly reducing backup complexity, addressing one of the top complaints companies have about their current data protection solution,” said Lauren Whitehouse, senior analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group. “Combine the strength of Asigra’s technology, with the company’s approach to delivering that technology through a substantial network of partners, and it’s no surprise that Asigra continues to achieve such milestones in the market.”

Asigra’s rapidly expanding footprint is supported by a global partnership network to provide robust solutions and ensure customer satisfaction. This year, the company was recognized by IDC as a cloud computing solution provider to watch and was voted Best Vendor Partner for Managed Service Providers by Business Solutions magazine, demonstrating Asigra’s technology leadership and channel empowering business model. Additionally, the company recently launched its Hybrid Partner Program to help partners meet customer demand by providing multiple solution delivery options with pricing levels that scale to meet budgetary requirements. With Asigra, partners select a blend of the most appropriate product/service delivery options for their business.

“The Asigra Cloud Backup Recovery platform has alleviated much of the historical burden of backup solutions companies have used in the past, freeing up their resources to focus on other important IT processes,” said Jim Rutherford, president of CoreVault. “Whereas tape backup was an extremely manual process that often resulted in recovery failures, the move to cloud backup and recovery has ended the risk and excessive time requirements.”

Asigra provides agentless deployment and operation with features that automate the backup and recovery process. The platform has broad interoperability, that supports use in nearly any environment including support for Windows, Linux, Unix, Series i and OSX. Asigra Hybrid Cloud Backup and Recovery software for hosted or on-premise cloud-based backup delivers powerful enterprise-class capabilities. The software supports low-touch restriction-free backup vault and computer system growth with grid-based scalability and Continuous Data Protection (CDP) for loss-less recoveries. Furthermore, backup data is de-duplicated, compressed, and encrypted at protected sites prior to transport over the business-class WAN to the backup vault for maximum performance, security and efficiency.

“With Asigra we have effectively redesigned our backup environment to provide faster recovery for greater peace-of-mind,” said Anthony Flores, operations manager at Compliance Poster, a leader in labor law poster compliance services. “Compared to our previous tape-based backup solutions, AllConnected’s XiloCore/Asigra-powered cloud backup solution provides much faster and more reliable data recovery services and is especially effective in our VMware-based virtualized server infrastructure. With the critical nature of business continuity, it is no surprise that thousands of other businesses are taking advantage of Asigra as well.”

“Our technology continues to prove itself in thousands of enterprise environments around the world thanks to more than two decades of successfully providing centralized visibility and command over backup and recovery, and the strong focus we have on partners as an integral part of our business model,” said David Farajun, CEO, Asigra. “We are committed to delivering a best of breed solution that enables customers to protect and restore vital enterprise information that is located throughout all organizational computing systems, providing measurable value in cloud-based backup and recovery.”
