BackupAssist, a provider of automated backup and recovery software for small and medium enterprises (SMEs), has announced that Wasabi, a cloud storage company, now integrates seamlessly with BackupAssist Classic and BackupAssist ER. This partnership provides customers with an up to 80% less expensive solution that is faster than the competition for achieving enterprise-grade cyber-resilience.
With more than 200,000 servers protected to date, BackupAssist specializes in automated server backup and recovery software for small to medium-size enterprises (SMEs), providing protection for physical, virtual and cloud environments.
As cybersecurity challenges continue to become more prevalent and sophisticated, the need for secure, scalable, and reliable file and system backup has become increasingly important. Unfortunately, this issue has been compounded by a spike in data, with many organizations choosing to migrate to the cloud to offset on-premise storage. When combined with Wasabi’s cloud, BackupAssist’s software provides a flexible and cost-effective storage solution that offers backups for both full system and granular recoveries anywhere, anytime. Additionally, BackupAssist’s CryptoSafeGuard combined with Wasabi’s 11 nines of object durability and data immutability enables backup files to remain secure.
“Clients have been asking for our recommended alternatives to the large first-generation public cloud providers, commonly inquiring about Wasabi specifically,” said Linus Chang, Founder and CEO, BackupAssist. “In response, we began our standard stringent review process, with Wasabi quickly emerging as a top viable solution. In August 2020, we added Wasabi support for our BackupAssist ER, and with this announcement we add support for our BackupAssist Classic solution as well.” He continued, “Now, by adhering to BackupAssist’s best practices guidance to perform multiple backups for maximum resilience, our clients can employ both local and cloud-based backups to ensure maximum protection from virtually all cyber risks, as well as rapid recovery—all at a dramatically lower cost.”
Wasabi says it offers a price advantage over competing options with a storage cost that is 20% of the cost of Amazon S3 with no fees for egress or API requests.“Our mission is to disrupt the traditional cloud market and work with companies like BackupAssist to provide an affordable, scalable and high-performing storage option to their clients,” said David Friend, CEO of Wasabi. “One benefit we’re particularly proud of is being able to provide immutable storage, creating an even more secure cloud storage option which perfectly complements BackupAssist’s ability to provide enterprise-grade cyber-resilience for the clients’ file backup needs.”
