Asigra partners with D2C to enable secure cloud backup

Tue, 20th Jun 2023

Asigra partners with Direct 2 Channel (D2C), a North American distributor of technology solutions, to enable secure cloud backup through its extensive channel. 

Through the partnership, Asigra is making its Tigris Data Protection software available to the hundreds of channel partners in the Direct 2 Channel 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 its new partner, 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.

Carlos Zevallos, Managing Partner, Direct 2 Channel, says: “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.”

“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,” says Carlos Zevallos.

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 a multi-layered security stack designed to continuously defend user backup data against the universe of malware, including ransomware.

Eric Simmons, CEO of Asigra, says: "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. 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,” says Eric Simmons.
