LOGiQ3 Protects Critical Data Automatically with e-ternity Cloud Backup Powered by Asigra

Leading Canadian Insurance Company Cuts Backup Administration Time up to 90 Percent

 

TORONTO – August 31, 2011 – Asigra Inc., a leading Cloud Backup™, recovery and restore (BURR) software provider since 1986, today announced that LOGiQ3, a leading Canadian insurance and reinsurance outsourcing company, is protecting its critical data with Asigra's Cloud Backup solution, delivered by Asigra partner e-ternity Business Continuity Consultants, Inc.

 A leading agent of change within the life insurance and reinsurance industry, LOGiQ3, a PROFIT 200 company, is one of Canada's Fastest-Growing Companies. LOGiQ3 provides a variety of outsourcing services including reinsurance administration, production underwriting, auditing, consulting and training to companies in North America, Europe and the Caribbean from its offices in Toronto, Canada, and Cardiff, U.K. The company selected cloud backup for its simplicity and ability to cut backup administration time up to 90 percent compared to traditional backup technologies.

 Prior to engaging a cloud backup solution, backing up LOGiQ3's distributed computing environment was challenging. The company performed file synchronization of laptop data, requiring users to protect the data on their own laptops. To improve the process, LOGiQ3 built a portal for users to save data in a SharePoint structured environment, but it was not 100 percent effective; manual processes were still required. When users searched the backup data set for specific information, data was often difficult to locate. This indicated that backups using only file synchronization were incomplete. The company looked at on-premise solutions but did not like their heavy backup agents or the fact that they provided file-level rather than block-level data protection and deduplication. Furthermore, LOGiQ3 wanted a backup time of 10 minutes maximum, not the 30 minutes required by on-premise solutions. 

LOGiQ3 turned to e-ternity, also a Canadian company, because it offered the best solution for its distributed environment. e-ternity provides monthly managed services that guarantee business continuance to customers and depends on Asigra Cloud Backup as the technology behind its services.

 "Protecting the laptop data of our mobile workforce was difficult; we needed a more advanced alternative," said Ian Sanderson, Vice President, Technology at LOGiQ3. "For our company, loss of communications or information assets can result in a loss of credibility which was not an option. e-ternity's cloud backup service provides the highest level of protection, which is critical to our business." 

 e-ternity cloud backup Powered by Asigra happens quickly and seamlessly, with no user intervention. The solution automatically protects 100 percent of the data across all LOGiQ3  laptops and desktops and select server data. Block-level backup minimizes the time required to capture all recent changes, thereby reducing backup run time and its impact on computing performance.

 "Compared to on-premise solutions, Asigra Cloud Backup from e-ternity has cut our backup administration hours by 80 to 90 percent and reduced maintenance and management costs up to 25 percent," said Sanderson. "Plus, we now trust that the recovery of data is assured, allowing us to sleep better at night. Since deploying the solution we've had to do two data restores, one for a stolen laptop and one for a laptop with a crashed disk drive. In both cases, data recovery took only a couple of hours.

 "The decentralized model of cloud backup is ideal for a 'road warrior' company like LOGiQ3, where the computing environment is highly distributed," said Greg Onoprijenko, president of e-ternity.  "Our Asigra-based Cloud Backup service provides seamless backup of all data, wherever it is located, with no end-user intervention."

 "More and more companies like LOGiQ3, where data is stored in disparate computing environments, are realizing that Asigra Cloud Backup can greatly simplify their backup procedures," said Tracy Staniland, senior director, corporate marketing, Asigra. "Because we partner with professional service providers such as e-ternity, end-users can be sure to receive excellent customer service from an experienced support team."
