Asigra builds partnership with D2C, enabling secure cloud backup through extensive channel


Asigra Inc., provider of backup and recovery solutions, has highlighted the company's successful partnership with Direct 2 Channel (D2C), a North American distributor of technology solutions for MSPs and other solution providers. Through the partnership, Asigra is making its Tigris Data Protection software available to the hundreds of channel partners in the D2C network.

D2C is a global, value-added, exclusively cybersecurity-focused, software, and hardware distributor that provides services to channel partners and Managed Service Providers by becoming an extension of their team. The company's mission is to create a synergy between Asigra and its channel ecosystem.

D2C selected Asigra for its leadership, and award-winning ultra-secure data protection software developed and optimized for solution providers. Tigris Data Protection software is cloud backup and recovery software used by thousands of MSPs globally to protect and manage data across various environments, including physical, virtual, and cloud-based infrastructures. Using agentless architecture, it automatically discovers and protects all data sources without installing agents and features a complement of security features, including military-grade encryption, multi-person approval, multi-factor authentication, and security/compliance reporting.

"The number one concern for customers and the solution providers served by them today is a crippling cyberattack. We are helping our partners minimize that threat significantly by providing best of breed security solutions from industry specialists like Asigra," said Carlos Zevallos, Managing Partner, Direct 2 Channel. "With layers of security covering nearly every aspect of business computing, it is surprising that so many overlook one of the single most important environments, their data backup infrastructure. This is often left exposed to malicious attacks, but Asigra blankets this sensitive data with aggressive technologies that screen, root out and defend against these attacks."

Tigris Data Protection converges backup and enterprise grade cybersecurity, creating new levels of cooperation between data protection and security professionals. Bidirectional antimalware scanning includes accurate inline detection on both the backup and recovery streams, zero-day exploit protection, MPA (multi-person approval), MFA (multi-factor authentication), variable repository naming to non-standard names to prevent recognition and encryption/deletion, soft-delete enablement, FIPS 140-2 certified encryption, and CDR (Content Disarm & Reconstruction). Combined, these features provide an unparalleled multi-layered security stack that continuously defends user backup data against the universe of malware, including ransomware.

"We are excited to announce our partnership with Direct 2 Channel (D2C), a leading distributor of technology solutions, as it opens up new avenues for the expansion of Tigris Data Protection software. Through this collaboration, we are bringing secure backup and recovery to D2C's extensive channel ecosystem," said Eric Simmons, CEO of Asigra. "We understand that the escalating threat of cyberattacks, especially ransomware, is a critical concern. Together with D2C, we are empowering the fortification of backup infrastructure against even the most malicious attacks."
