Designation Highlights the Company’s Leadership in
Remote Office / Branch Office Backup and Recovery Software

TORONTO – June 6, 2007 – Asigra Inc., the technology leader in agentless backup and recovery software for service providers targeting the growing managed storage services market, today announced its designation as one of CRN’s Emerging Technology leaders for its 64-bit Asigra Televaulting™ backup and recovery software. This award acknowledges Asigra’s position as a leading provider of powerful data protection software for service providers seeking entry into the managed backup services market or to expand their current services portfolio.

According to Computer Reseller News (CRN), “Software and storage vendors form the vanguard of CRN’s 2007 Emerging Tech Dynamos list of 163 vendors that bring high margins and unique enhancements to VARs’ solution-oriented offerings. They have far superior technology, more robust margins and uncompromising technical support. They are the CRN Emerging Tech Dynamos and they’re reshaping the information technology industry, solution providers say, by handily beating established vendors in head-to-head product, margin, technical support and field engagement comparisons.”

“It’s not even close. Solution providers say the Emerging Tech Dynamos are blowing away the big boys on all those fronts and more. And they are doing it in greater numbers,” proclaimed the publication.

The primary reason VARs are turning to emerging vendors like Asigra is the technology provided by these companies is superior to other products in the market segment, according to the CRN study.

About 64-bit Asigra Televaulting
Asigra’s 64-bit edition of Televaulting is the industry’s highest performing and feature-rich backup and recovery software in the industry. Televaulting takes full advantage of 64-bit environments to deliver the highest performance available for consolidated, multi-site data protection, allowing higher levels of data reduction and processing of network data. Available in supercomputing environments for years, 64-bit computing is capable of managing exponentially more data than 32-bit systems. Asigra supports single or multi-core x64 processors for maximum performance and scalability.

Asigra Televaulting is agentless, multi-site backup/recovery software that combines utility service provisioning with a disk-based WAN-optimized architecture to overcome the limitations of traditional distributed-backup software. Televaulting’s simple, reliable and affordable multi-site backup and recovery consolidates ROBO backups or a distributed customer base to a central datacenter or vault. With Asigra’s automated backup, IT management is not required as the entire process is managed centrally. With support for 64-bit environments, organizations using Televaulting will reduce network traffic loads, thereby reducing time and hardware requirements for enterprise-wide backup. This disk-based backup solution provides more affordable, scalable, reliable, secure and manageable backup than available with conventional backup products.

“We are proud to add this recognition to our outstanding list of accolades received over the years,” said Eran Farajun, executive vice president for Asigra. “The fact that it comes from one of the industry’s most respected channel publications confirms for the channel that when partnering with Asigra, they will work with a vendor that provides award winning technology and values what the channel brings to the table.”
