London, United Kingdom – 21st January 2016: LDeX Group has today announced the launch of its Backup-as-a-Service platform powered by Asigra’s converged data protection platform. Asigra Cloud Backup™ software is the industry’s leading cloud-based data recovery software with over one million installations worldwide. The software is built for reliable, efficient operation and easily integrates with public, private, and hybrid cloud architectures.

Asigra’s agentless architecture provides for simple, secure deployment and hands-free management while delivering advanced features, including global de-duplication, automated mass deployment, autonomic healing, and validation restore capabilities.

Rob Garbutt, LDeX Group’s CEO, said: “Asigra was a natural choice of BaaS software which complements our data centre and connectivity customer requirements as well as opening up new markets to us. Proliferation of mobile and cloud-based IT makes it increasingly difficult for our customers to protect and ensure the recovery of important data. Asigra overcomes these challenges.”

According to research by IDC, the digital universe is expanding at the phenomenal rate of 40 percent a year into the next decade. With data doubling in size globally every two years, IDC expects that by 2020, the data created and copied annually will reach 44 trillion gigabytes (44 zetabytes). In this environment, organizations face growing needs to protect their information across physical, virtual, cloud and mobile computing environments.

“With a data protection solution as comprehensive as Asigra Cloud Backup, we can help our partners address the challenges of protecting data whether it resides in the data centre or is born in SaaS-based office productivity suites such as Office 365,“ said Eran Farajun, Executive Vice President, Asigra. “We are pleased to welcome LDeX Group to our global partner ecosystem and look forward to collaborating with their team to support the deployment of their Backup-as-a-Service offering across the UK.”
