Featured in this year’s list of industry experts is Eran Farajun, executive vice president of Asigra. According to the publication, “over the past 12 months, Farajun has overseen Asigra’s growth from 400,000 end-customer deployments in June, 2011 to more than 550,000 by June, 2012. All growth was driven exclusively by Asigra MSP partners and facilitated through programs, training, support and new technologies under the management of Farajun. Channel enablement remained the focus in 2012 with MSP partner program enhancements that included a new automated marketing platform, new demand generation processes, an advanced on-boarding program for new partners and an online partner forum.”

“Worldwide revenue from public IT cloud services exceeded $21.5 billion in 2010 and will reach $72.9 billion in 2015, representing a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 27.6%. This rapid growth rate is over four times the projected growth for the worldwide IT market as a whole (6.7%),” said market research firm, International Data Corporation (IDC). “By 2015, one of every seven dollars spent on packaged software, server, and storage offerings will be through the public cloud model .”

Since its founding, Asigra has remained focused on a channel-only business model and is still the only cloud backup service enabler that allows managed services providers to own their own cloud. MSPs deploy Asigra Cloud Backup™ as a private, public or hybrid cloud backup platform to support a range of customers, ranging from SMBs to the Global 100. Serviced by Asigra’s global network of service provider partners, end-customers leverage the technology to protect both physical and virtual IT environments for end-to-end recovery of data across the broadest range of devices, systems, platforms and applications.

Asigra’s channel program is designed to help MSPs create new opportunities and scale their businesses quicker. Asigra MSP partners gain exclusive access to resources that help to create new opportunities and increase profitability by closing deals faster. All Asigra partners are provided with a dedicated partner development manager that works with MSPs to quickly build their business. Partners are supplied with various marketing and sales tools and resources that not only reduce the risks involved in making a foray into new technology but also shorten the time required to go-to-market. The Asigra partner program is designed for MSPs who are new to backup as well as veterans who are graduating to a new backup platform.

“Business challenges such as incessant data growth, the inability to meet aggressive recovery time objectives (RTOs), and the proliferation of mobile devices in the enterprise are driving customers to reconsider their data protection strategies," said Farajun. “Asigra has found success by providing a modern approach to data protection that addresses these challenges while supporting a strong partner ecosystem with the strategies, marketing tools and expert endorsements needed to enhance business development. Inclusion in the MSPmentor250 is validation of these efforts.”
