Inc. Magazine Ranks Dell AppAssure as Fastest Growing Backup and Recovery Software Company Nationwide with 3,450% Growth in Three Years
AppAssure ranks #62 overall among US companies across all industries and seventh fastest growing among all software firms nationwide in annual Inc. 500 ranking.
Reston, VA – August 23, 2011 – AppAssure Software, leading developer of backup and disaster recovery software products for mission-critical Windows application servers, today announced that Inc. Magazine has ranked the company as the fastest growing company among all backup and disaster recovery software firms nationwide in the 2011 Inc. 500 list.
Based on overall revenue growth between 2007 and 2010, the Inc. 500 ranks the 500 fastest growing US companies across all industries. AppAssure’s 3-year growth rate of 3,450 percent placed the company high on this year’s list, well within the top 100, landing in position number 62 among all US companies spanning every industry.
Among US software companies across all technologies, AppAssure ranked in the top seven. No other backup and disaster recovery software firm outpaced AppAssure’s growth rate, placing the company in the number one position as compared to its direct competitors. By comparison, traditional backup and recovery vendors in the industry such as Symantec (NASDAQ: SYMC), Commvault (NASDAQ: CVLT) and FalconStor (NASDAQ: FALC) all failed to grow by as little as five percent last quarter, compared to previous sequential quarters.
The company attributes its extreme growth to the demand for server failure recovery in minutes with AppAssure’s software rather than taking hours or days using traditional recovery products. Major clients such as AppRiver can attest not only to AppAssure’s total server recovery speed, but also its flexibility to recover with any degree of granularity in minutes, even individual mail items.
“With more than 45,000 corporate customers around the globe, it’s important to retrieve messages accurately and efficiently so that we can better serve our clients,” said Justin Allen, server engineer, AppRiver. “AppAssure’s backup and disaster discovery solution allows us to do just that.”
Today’s recognition by Inc. Magazine is the latest in a series of recent independent testimonies to the company’s success:
- 2011 CRN Emerging Vendor – Earlier this week, AppAssure was again named as one of the top companies in terms of growth and attractiveness to the reseller and managed service provider community
- 2011 Best of TechEd – At the 2011 Microsoft TechEd conference in Atlanta, AppAssure was named a “Best of TechEd” finalist in the Backup and Disaster Recovery category by WindowsIT Pro Magazine
- Growing Customer Success Stories – Contrasting their recovery times between AppAssure and traditional backup products such as Symantec Backup Exec, Acronis, CA Arcserv, IBM Tivoli and more, 60 case studies have been published on AppAssure.com as well as on Spiceworks.com, TMCnet.com, Healthcare Technology Online, and StorageNewsletter.com.
“Through the tough US economy over the last three years in a market that’s only growing at 5 percent per year, to emerge among the 100 fastest growth companies nationwide is no easy task,” said Najaf Husain, president and chief executive officer, AppAssure. “One can only conclude that AppAssure’s backup and disaster recovery software must deliver extremely high value to companies that no longer accept hours and days of downtime and data loss as tolerable. These are the companies that are very willing to upgrade their old tools for something an order of magnitude more powerful and effective at protecting mission critical business applications, both locally and in the cloud.”
