Asigra Inc. has announced that its data protection software for MSPs has been named Storage Innovation of the Year in the 2020 Data Breakthrough Awards. Cloud Backup V14 received this recognition for its defense of backup data against the rapidly growing threat of ransomware infiltrating backup repositories, the company said.
- Asigra Cloud Backup V14 converges data protection and cybersecurity for effective malware detection to ensure safe, secure and reliable backup and data recovery.
- The platform includes zero-day Attack-Loop preventative technology using bi-directional malware detection, zero-day exploit protection, variable repository naming, and two-factor authentication (2FA) for a defensive suite against advanced ransomware and other cyber-attacks on backup repositories and the data it stores.
- The software contains embedded malware engines in the backup and recovery streams to prevent ransomware from getting into backups.
- The software is said to be unique in its ability to identify a virus, quarantine it and notify the backup administrator.
“Criminal hackers continue to orchestrate successful attacks with new ransomware variants, even as security vendors struggle to defend businesses. With companies relying on their backups to recover data lost in these attacks, a growing number of strains have included this data as an attack vector,” said David Farajun, CEO, Asigra. “Asigra provides the most innovative and complete defense against ransomware so that clean backup data is available to recover and maintain operations.”
