The Growth Partnership Analyst Firm Selects Asigra Based on Best Practices Research.
Asigra Inc., a leading Cloud Backup, Recovery and Restore (BURR) software provider since 1986, today announced that it has received the 2012 North American New Product Innovation Award in Cloud-Based Data Management for the development of Asigra Cloud Backup™. With a 50-year track record and 1,800 analysts who monitor more than 300 industries and 250,000 companies globally, Frost & Sullivan chose Asigra based on its Best Practices qualitative analysis preformed this year.
As the volume of data continues unmitigated growth across organizations, the deployment of traditional backup and recovery technologies is becoming increasingly ineffective and difficult because of backup target heterogeneity, virtualized operating environments, regulatory compliance, evolving delivery models (private cloud, hybrid cloud, public cloud, physical, etc.), requirements for centralized control and capital/operational costs. Asigra Cloud Backup addresses these and other challenges to provide a simple, efficient and powerful solution for dynamic organizations.
“The rise in the adoption of virtual infrastructures, entry of employee mobile devices to the workplace, and unprecedented scaling of enterprise data have compelled chief information officers (CIOs) of enterprises to re-think their data management strategies with regard to data protection and recovery,” said Charanya Balasubramanian, senior research analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “To navigate this market challenge, Asigra delivers world-class cloud backup and recovery software to equip service providers and organizations with an efficient approach to data protection for business continuity and disaster recovery.”
Asigra’s technology expertise has resulted in the incorporation of several innovative capabilities in the product. The diverse benefits offered as a result of these technological competencies have improved prospects for increasing ROI and accelerating Asigra’s customer acquisition.
According to Frost & Sullivan, “Asigra offers its customers a unified platform to tackle the heterogeneity in the enterprise environment by supporting varied gadgets ranging from tablets and smartphones, to laptops, desktops and datacenters. Adopting a hybrid partner program, Asigra has strengthened its partner ecosystem and has been quite successful in acquiring a vast customer base. The compatibility with 10Gbps LAN technology, adoption of resource-efficient and flexible techniques for deployment, and constant revival of delivery and licensing models have all helped Asigra gain the competitive edge over traditional vendors.
“In order for Asigra to reach out to its large global customer base, the company has developed an efficient business model that encourages selling through channels. Asigra adopts a unique approach to avert channel conflict, as it does not participate in a direct sales model. Instead, the company has developed a vast partner ecosystem through its hybrid partner program. As a part of this program, Asigra works closely with partners to equip them with marketing skills and enhance customer relationships, which improves revenue generation prospects.”
“We are pleased to see Asigra Cloud Backup receive this prestigious award for leadership in the constantly evolving area of data protection,” said David Farajun, CEO, Asigra. “Our ability to meet the broadest mix of customer requirements with software that is regularly updated with innovative capabilities and a delivery/deployment model to tackle heterogeneity and capacity demands without compromise, have positioned Asigra at the top of its game.”
