Asigra Launches Program To Fight Against Cyber Attacks


In the wake of recent cybersecurity breaches, Canadian firm Asigra has launched a new program focused on defending the backup repositories and data of Canadian public/non-profit organizations against cyber-attacks.

The program is aimed at ensuring the recovery of data that otherwise may have become compromised as a result of malicious malware or ransomware Attack-Loops that prevent the recovery of mission-critical data and often put large volumes of personally identifiable information (PII) at risk.

Asigra said it is planning to help protect organizations by partially donating a large percentage of its cybersecurity-enabled backup technology to Canada’s extensive list of public and non-profit organizations. Those establishments in the country that can issue a tax-deductible receipt may touch base with Asigra to get the company’s complete anti-ransomware/backup software suite with the cost covered in large part by a donation-in-kind, the company added.

Asigra’s cloud-based data recovery platform includes the Attack-Loop preventative technology. It uses bi-directional cyber-threat detection, zero-day exploit protection, variable repository naming, and multi-factor authentication (MFA) for a full defensive suite against aggressive ransomware and other cyber-threats targeting backup data.
