Heathrow, 24 May 2016 – Azlan, the enterprise value added distribution business of Tech Data, has formed a partnership with Asigra, a leading cloud backup, recovery and restore software provider, and will be working with the company to extend its reach amongst UK managed services providers (MSPs).
Asigra provides an enterprise-class, multi-tenant, agentless cloud-based backup and recovery software solution designed for MSPs. The solution reduces recovery time objectives and eliminates silos of data backups by providing a single consolidated repository with dynamic autonomic healing along with recovery assurance and low total cost of ownership. Asigra also provides all partners with extensive commercial tools such as a Market Readiness Toolkit, turnkey marketing campaigns, content marketing assets, social media materials, sales playbooks and presentation materials to accelerate go to market plans enabling partners to significantly reduce their time to revenue.
This agreement extends Azlan’s managed services portfolio and enhances its status as the leading distribution partner for MSPs in the UK market. Azlan will be looking to sign new partners who are currently active in the managed services sector who want to extend a cloud backup service powered by Asigra to their customers.
Asigra Cloud Backup™ provides the highest levels of certainty and confidence to MSPs and their customers. It supports all devices and applications, from data centre servers and storage, to desktop PCs, notebooks, mobiles and Office 365, Google Apps and Salesforce.com. It allows MSPs to offer exceptional Recovery Time Objectives and Recovery Point Objectives that match customers’ business needs. All backups are encrypted before transmission to a cloud vault and remain encrypted while they are stored. No-one except the customer themselves has access to the decryption key.
“Asigra’s solution is ideal for MSPs looking to drive top line revenue, expand their total addressable market, increase monthly recurring revenue and/or increase wallet share with existing customers while providing dependable recovery times for virtualised and hybrid environments and critical applications,” said Andy Brown, director of Cloud Services UK and Ireland, Azlan. “For both the MSP and the customer, it’s vital to know that data is safely backed up. But that’s of little use if you can’t complete a fast and efficient recovery. Asigra Cloud Backup is fast, reliable and secure. It allows MSPs to offer the highest levels of assurance to their customers.”
“Our partnership with Azlan adds a new dimension to our presence in the UK and will allow us to reach more MSPs and partners,” said Eran Farajun, Executive Vice President, Asigra.
