BackupAssist the leading provider of automated backup and recovery software for small and medium enterprises (SMEs), today announced Wasabi, the hot 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.
As cybersecurity risks 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’s storage is 1/5th the cost of Amazon S3 with no fees for egress or API requests while remaining markedly faster than competitors. For those currently using a private cloud, the availability of a public cloud through Wasabi extends data resources for greater overall capacity without the hefty price tag.
“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.”
