Business Only Telecommunications Provider Chooses Asigra Cloud Backup to Power Data Recovery Services
Asigra Inc., a leading cloud backup, recovery and restore software provider since 1986 today announced that Kordia, a telecommunications provider based in New Zealand, has joined the Asigra partner ecosystem to deliver backup and recovery services powered by the Asigra Cloud Backup software platform. Kordia selected Asigra for its agentless, multi-tenant architecture and secure, enterprise-class offering built from the ground up for IT service delivery.

Kordia is New Zealand's only telco dedicated to business and has been in operation for more than 60 years. Kordia provides robust, secure and reliable specialist telecommunications and media solutions. These include managed voice, video, WAN and security services to some of New Zealand's most well-known companies including Sky Television, Radio New Zealand, Hawkins Construction and Burger King.

Kordia has chosen Asigra Cloud Backup software to deploy within its core network to offer medium to large enterprise businesses data recovery services on demand. Asigra's enterprise-class data protection platform transforms the way businesses manage and protect their data by delivering a market leading solution that seamlessly and efficiently manages, scales and delivers data protection services. A key driver for Kordia's selection of Asigra Cloud Backup was its agentless architecture which does not require any agents to be installed on backup targets, but instead reaches out over the network to back up operating systems, file systems, and applications through industry standard programming interfaces. Another significant decision point in selecting Asigra was its end-to-end protection of all computing infrastructure, including physical, virtual, cloud and mobile computing environments with minimal human intervention.

"We wanted a solution for our Remote Backup and Restore product which provided an intuitive interface for our customers, enabled reliable self-managed backup and restore and was highly secure," said Aaron Olphert, CTO, Kordia Group. "We have been very impressed with the product so far which has exceeded expectations. We have achieved a 100% conversion rate between customer trials and customer production services to date. Asigra's reputation as a leader in the backup space is well-deserved and we continue to move forward in earnest to extend the benefits of their technology to our customers."

"Medium and large enterprises present special challenges to backup service platforms that lack the capacity to scale without disrupting business operations or the ability to securely protect information in a compliant manner," said Eran Farajun, Executive Vice President, Asigra. "Our software was designed for managed service providers facing these challenges and provides the reliability, scalability and security required to ensure data availability. We are proud to welcome New Zealand's leading provider of business-critical networks to our partner ecosystem and look forward to their success."
