ExaGrid EX189 named as only scale-out backup target to achieve a TOP 5 ranking in Report

(BUSINESS WIRE)--ExaGrid®, the industry’s only Tiered Backup Storage solution, today announced that its EX189 appliance has been recognized as a TOP 5 backup target in the 2024-25 DCIG TOP 5 2PB+ Cyber Secure Backup Target Global Edition Report.

The report from DCIG provides guidance on the TOP 5 cyber secure backup targets that enterprises should consider in their fight against ransomware. The report includes a profile of each of the TOP 5 cyber secure backup targets which lists at least three ways each backup target distinguishes itself from the other solutions.

Inclusion Critieria for the 2024-25 DCIG TOP 5 2PB+ Cyber Secure Backup Target Global Edition1 report:

  • Offers cyber security features to protect itself and data stored on it.
  • Scales to at least two petabytes of raw storage capacity.
  • Ships as a physical appliance.
  • Shipping and available by January 1, 2024.
  • Sufficient information available for DCIG to make an informed, defensible decision.

ExaGrid’s EX189, the largest appliance model in the line of ExaGrid Tiered Backup Storage appliances, achieved its TOP 5 ranking due it its unique scale-out architecture and its comprehensive security features such as Retention Time-Lock for Ransomware Recovery, including a non-network-facing tier (tiered air gap), with a delayed delete policy and immutable data objects. In addition, ExaGrid’s industry-leading customer support model of customers working directly with a level-2 senior support engineer is also highlighted in the report as a key differentiator from other backup targets.

“ExaGrid is pleased to be named in DCIG’s TOP 5 Report,” said Bill Andrews, President and CEO of ExaGrid. “Traditionally, backup applications have strong security but backup storage typically has little to none. ExaGrid is unique in its approach to backup storage security and we encourage all organizations to consider their approach to backup storage when evaluating their cybersecurity policies and procedures and overall readiness to recover if faced with a ransomware attack.”
