Asigra Sues Robobak

Backup specialist Asigra has filed a lawsuit against rival vendor Robobak for alleged libel and misleading advertising.

Asigra confirmed the legal proceedings yesterday afternoon. The lawsuit, filed in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice in Toronto, alleges that RoboDRS, which distributes Robobak software, its CEO Ron Roberts, another RoboDRS officer, and the firms PR agency MMI Communications, defamed the Televaulting product in two recent press releases.

”It is regrettable that some companies and individuals resort to such tactics,” said David Farajun, the Asigra CEO, in a statement. “We have worked for 22 years to develop Aisgra software with innovation, quality, service and honesty – we are committed to aggressively defending Asigra’s brand and reputation.”

Asigra alleges that in one of the releases, Robobak made “false and misleading statements” about the vendor’s relations with its customers, in addition to “disparaging Asigra’s products and services.”

The vendor also challenges the assertions made in another Robobak release.
