Asigra Hybrid Partner Of the Year 2014CALGARY, Alberta and DENVER, Colorado (June 26, 2014) — In a wide variety of work environments, reliable backup is essential to performance. It’s also critical in the world of cloud computing — and Long View and Asigra continue to form a formidable partnership to keep customer data safe and secure.

Long View (www.longviewsystems.com), one of North America’s most powerful providers of Hybrid IT solutions and services, is pleased to announce that it recently earned top billing at the 2014 Asigra Partner Summit in Toronto by earning the Asigra Hybrid Partner of the Year award.

The award from Asigra, an industry-leading cloud backup, recovery, and restore software provider, is based on across-the-board achievements in sales, marketing, and service, including significant growth in customer adoption over the past year. The Asigra Partner Summit is the largest annual gathering of data recovery-focused IT service providers from all over the globe.

“Asigra’s backup and recovery software solution works hand-in-glove with Long View’s Hybrid IT offering — which is based on a nimble, dedicated, collaborative approach, and the understanding that no two companies, and no two solutions, are alike,” says Dave Frederickson, Long View’s Vice President of Business Development.

The market for data protection services represents a growing opportunity, notes Frederickson, as data volumes continue to rise and systems needing protection become more widespread than ever.

Businesses need to protect their data both locally and offsite to protect against data loss, he adds, and backup infrastructure needs to be more sophisticated than ever for greater recovery assurance.

“Thanks to Asigra’s team of specialists, our backup services provide complete flexibility, meeting the ever-changing needs of customer IT environments,” says Frederickson. “We are humbled and proud at the recognition that the Asigra Hybrid Partner of the Year award brings, and we look forward to a continuing successful relationship.”

“Capturing marketshare in the highly competitive backup and recovery market requires intelligence driven efforts at multiple levels to outmarket, outsell and outperform, winning the opportunity to deliver a more compelling solution to the customer,” said David Farajun, CEO, Asigra. “Long View achieves consecutively high results and therefore ranks number one receiving the Hybrid Partner of the Year recognition. Our entire team cheers the efforts of Long View and anticipates continued victories from this data protection leader.”

The depth and breadth of Long View’s cloud-based data protection offering has come a long way in a very short time. Only a year ago, at the 2013 Asigra Partner Summit, Long View took home the Asigra Rookie of the Year award for “the delivery of effective, efficient, and comprehensive cloud-based data protection.”

This latest distinguished honor from Asigra recognizes the evolution of Long View’s services, and the continued time and energy that Long View is investing in growing those services as a world-class cloud provider.
