Asigra Reaches Remote Backup Milestone of More Than 50,000 Remote Sites Under ProtectionMedium and Large Enterprises Rely on Asigra for Comprehensive Remote and Branch Office Protection (December 11, 2007)
DMN Newswire, 121107 - Asigra Inc., the technology leader in agentless backup and recovery software for enterprises and service providers targeting the growing managed storage services market, today announced it has exceeded 50,000 sites being protected by the company's remote and branch office optimized backup and recovery software, Asigra Televaulting(tm). This equates to hundreds of thousands of laptops, desktops, workstations, servers and virtual servers. Organizations face many challenges and one of the most formidable is protecting (and restoring if lost or destroyed) the vital enterprise information that is distributed across geographically remote offices and factories. Asigra maintains the strongest position in WAN optimized backup and recovery with technology perfected over twenty years to outperform available solutions.
"Asigra's success in the market is due in part to the demand for WAN-optimized backup which has been driven by both distributed enterprises seeking consolidated data protection and managed service providers that provide services to distributed enterprises that understand the benefits of outsourced backup," said Lauren Whitehouse, analyst for Enterprise Strategy Group. "With WAN-optimized backup high on IT's list to provide better accountability, reliability and efficiency, Asigra provides a proven solution that the market has responded to favorably."
In 2007, Asigra maintained its leadership position in remote backup with inclusion on analyst's "A-List" alongside industry stalwarts. The company also significantly expanded use of its backup services delivery platform with new service provider and Tier One distribution partners teaming with Asigra to deliver the company's flagship product, Televaulting, to some of the world's largest enterprises, including Allianz, HP, and Toyota. The company continues to set the bar for other players in the space, receiving accolades by industry press, receiving a number of Editor's Choice, Top Technology and Best-in-Class awards from leading technology and vertical publications.
As corporations conduct due-diligence for multi-site backup and recovery solutions that protect the broadest array of applications from unnecessary downtime, including Oracle, MS-Exchange, Lotus Notes, DB2, MS-SQL, SharePoint, GroupWise, VMware, SAP and others, they turn to Asigra. A testament to the company's strength in the enterprise, the company delivers the broadest platform coverage, including support for Windows, Linux, Unix, System i and OSX. Asigra delivers powerful capabilities that ensure restriction-free backup vault growth with grid-based scalability and Continuous Data Protection for loss-less recoveries. Furthermore, backup data is de-duplicated, compressed, and encrypted at the remote site prior to transport over the WAN to the backup vault for maximum performance, security and efficiency.
According to a 2007 report by Enterprise Strategy Group, entitled Branch Office Optimization, top organizational categories with 100 or more remote locations includes companies in the areas of telecommunications, transportation and logistics, retail/wholesale, financial, government and healthcare. A number of these organizations are transitioning from tape-based backup to WAN-optimized backup and recovery using technology backed by Asigra.
"Asigra has been solving this problem successfully for more than 20 years, bringing the richest feature set available. These features translate to real business benefits which significantly outweigh offerings by Asigra's largest competitors," said David Farajun, CEO, Asigra. "Our technology continues to prove itself in thousands of enterprise environments across the broadest set of platforms for centralized visibility and command over backup and recovery. Our continued growth in this space emphasizes our advancing technical and market leadership in remote backup and recovery."
