According to International Data Corporation (IDC), the volume of data worldwide is expected to increase 50 times by 2020[1]. However, many organizations are experiencing a high level of data growth today as they struggle to keep up with the rise in data volumes. Businesses today must identify more comprehensive, yet efficient, approaches to data management, retention, storage, sharing, access and security in order to effectively deal with this growth.

Advanced cloud backup, recovery and restore solutions take advantage of existing infrastructure, eliminating the need to buy or install expensive equipment. Cloud backup software integrates with IT environments to locate and prioritize files for backup, and then securely transmits encrypted copies of those files to offsite data centers. This results in a lower total cost of ownership compared to the purchase and maintenance of complex tape backup systems.

Join this no cost Summit as Asigra and Backup Technology discuss how an automated, secure cloud backup solution can remove the burden of managing complex and error-prone data protection processes. Access the webinar at
