Datastring joins Asigra Global Partner Ecosystem

London/Dublin, 11th October 2016: datastring, the leading provider of cloud backup and recovery solutions for customers of all sizes, has joined the Asigra Global Partner Ecosystem. The move enables datastring to deliver a scalable, flexible, secure and comprehensive data protection service powered by Asigra, including backup and recovery for SaaS applications such as Microsoft Office 365 Exchange Online, SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business.

datastring also offers a wholesale model for managed service providers and value-added resellers, allowing them to deliver datastring’s cloud backup service, powered by Asigra, to their customers.

Jon Thordarson, CEO of datastring, commented:

“The Asigra Cloud Backup platform was the obvious first choice for datastring. Having previously worked with the solution for over 12 years, we knew its proven capabilities would enable us to deliver a strong reliable cloud backup and recovery service that can protect our customers’ data in a smart, efficient and secure manner.

“With the flood of ransomware attacks in the market today, companies big and small need to ensure that all data across their entire organisation is protected at all times. With the Asigra solution we know we can provide data protection for data residing in the data centre and beyond, including mobile devices used by field workers, remote offices, third party clouds and cloud office productivity suites like Office 365 and Google Apps.”
