Asigra Protects Consultancy

TORONTO -- AsigraT, the technology leader in agentless
backup and recovery software for service providers targeting the growing
managed storage services market, today announced that Frank Hirth, the
international tax and accounting specialist, is using Asigra Televaulting
online remote backup software. Delivered by hSo, a managed IT solutions
provider, through its hSo:VAULT solution, Frank Hirth is using hSo:VAULT to
back up email and critical data generated from 13 servers and 110 desktops.

Frank Hirth is an accounting consultant based in London specializing in tax
compliance for individuals and organizations, with a large core U.S. client
base, generating sensitive financial data that needs to be securely stored
and easily retrieved. The organization previously used tape-based backup,
which was cumbersome, time consuming and unreliable. Due to the nature of
its critical data, Frank Hirth wanted a backup and recovery system that
could be relied upon. The company initially changed to the hSo:VAULT because
of its agentless online backup and recovery offering in order to backup its
critical client data. Frank Hirth then extended the service to include
backup of its highly sensitive UK and USA tax return data because of the
strong level of security provided by Asigra Televaulting.

Asigra Televaulting encrypts data in-flight and at-rest with up to 256 AES
bit protection, allowing the secure movement of data to a centralized
off-site location, as well as utilizing advanced authentication and
notification functionality that prevents un-authorized access to all backed
up data.

Mike Jackson, IT manager at Frank Hirth, said, "The ability to protect our
internal and client data is of the utmost importance for us, as we
consistently handle very sensitive financial data. Once we evaluated
Asigra's strong encryption and data protection, we knew that the hSo:VAULT
service would ensure our data is secure at all times, as well as restorable
at all times. The ability to stream data across the internet is far more
efficient for us given our breadth of international clients. The added
benefit of the reliability of the hSo service and the Asigra software, has
made our entire backup and recovery procedure more effective and far easier
to manage than tape."
