Why Cloud Backup?

Today’s business runs on data. But threats have evolved: technology failure, environmental disaster, cloud outages, malevolent cyber sabotage or innocent employee error, and more. In a digital age, a backup and recovery solution is essential insurance.

Lower total cost of ownership

A cloud backup, recovery, and restore solution takes advantage of an existing infrastructure, so your clients don’t need to buy or install expensive equipment. Cloud backup software integrates with IT environments to locate and prioritise 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.

Improved reliability and speed of recovery

Having a backup solution is meaningless without a rapid and reliable method of recovering and restoring data. A cloud backup and recovery solution instantly restores data regardless of location, including individual files, the most common type of data recovery. backup2cloud allows your clients to establish Recovery Time Objectives and Recovery Point Objectives that match their business requirements.

Data Protection for Endpoint Devices

As more and more employees are creating and storing business data on laptops, tablets, and smartphones, cloud-based data protection solutions enable your clients to back up the data to a central repository in the event that these devices are lost or stolen. Cloud backup solutions provide data loss prevention such as geo-location and remote wipe capabilities, allowing organisations to find the devices and remote wipe the data if needed for corporate data security.

Stronger compliance safeguards

Although your clients will continue to assume liability for data security when moving to cloud backup, the backup2cloud platform offers multiple data centres that are geographically diverse, delivering a backup solution with more reliability and redundancy than a local tape or disk-based backup environment.



Smarter use of IT resources

A cloud backup, recovery, and restore solution allows your clients to redirect IT resources to more pressing challenges or strategic initiatives within their organisation. The built-in scalability of cloud backup makes it easy to evolve as your clients business data environment grows and changes.

Eliminates the shortcomings of tape backup

Tape backups are often expensive, vulnerable to obsolescence, and can be lost or stolen when being transported off-site. Also, recovering data from a tape system can be slow process, especially if a tape needs to be retrieved from an off-site vault.

Reduced operating and administrative costs

Once the backup has been scheduled, client data is saved automatically, providing an unobtrusive and transparent solution. This ‘set it and forget it’ model results in less operational and administrative management for data backup.

More secure method of file transfer

Files selected for backup are encrypted before transmission to the backup2cloud platform, and remain encrypted once they reach their destination. The only decryption key resides with the customer, and these safeguards are superior to unencrypted on-premise data backup and recovery systems.

Platform Features


Protect all your critical data from any source — in your data center, the cloud and every endpoint device, anywhere. backup2cloud Asigra delivers an agentless Cloud Backup architecture with Autonomic Healing, Continuous Data Protection and Instant Recovery all managed via a highly intuitive Management Console.
The backup2cloud Asigra software is a completely agentless architecture. That means no vulnerable agents on hypervisors, virtual machines, physical machines, or containers. No agents to install, patch, fix, update, upgrade, or protect ever. Agents are vulnerable backdoors that malware can and does attack. Asigra has no agents and therefore no backdoor attack vectors.
Reduce downtime and keep end users productive while you troubleshoot production issues. The Asigra Instant Recovery feature enables clients to maintain a warm recovery repository of the latest protected data, available immediately without delay.
The core backup2cloud Asigra cloud platform - the DS-System - performs a 24/7 background process that is run on the cloud servers verifying both the logical and physical integrity of the data written to the cloud storage systems. This ensures all data held in the platform is recoverable.
The backup2cloud Asigra platform delivers full geo-diverse replication of all data that it protects. After each backup set executes and completes, the Asigra platform then replicates the new data to an alternate Asigra platform in the UK.

Only Asigra stops the ransomware Attack-Loop™. Asigra's sophisticated signature-less malware detection engines identify and quarantine unauthorised or malicious embedded code, including unknown and “zero day” attacks, from penetrating backup and replication streams.
Asigra is the only agentless cloud backup vendor to have received certification that its encryption meets these strict standards. Data from each customer is not only encrypted in-flight (to maintain security as it travels over the Internet to storage), it is also stored encrypted by the cloud backup application. Your data is protected at all times with the highest levels of security and compliance.
Real-time AI-Powered malware prevention scans backups and restores, isolating malicious code and alerts administrators of infections. This feature helps mitigate the real-world risk of virus and ransomware re-infection from your backup repositories.
Immutable retention repository prevents malware and malicious software or hacks from deleting, modifying, or encrypting the data from object storage during the immutable retention period. Once data is protected by Asigra you have piece of mind that it can never be tampered with.
Backup applications are notoriously unprotected. Most have no integrated Multi Factor Authentication, while the handful do, only have front door protection, leaving the back door exposed. Deep MFA means imbedding MFA to every single backup task that affects the data within the application. Tasks such as backup schedules, retention time, backup location and replication.
