Holzkirchen – 21st of January 2021
For the first time, SEP AG has achieved the position of "Leader" in the Professional User Ratings: Security Solutions (PUR-S) 2021 from the analyst firm techconsult. The positioning from last year was thus surpassed and is now at the top of the results diamond. In the solution area "Backup and Recovery", SEP has been awarded for the fourth time in a row. This means that the manufacturer of platform-independent hybrid backup and disaster recovery solutions "Made in Germany" has once again received a top award, which was determined by user feedback. A total of more than 2,000 user companies were surveyed, evaluating more than 50 criteria in 14 subcategories. The study is based on end-user surveys using a representative panel in companies of all sizes and industries.
"The SEP team is proud of this recognition and a big thank you to all SEP customers for their participation and positive evaluation. This will be a motivation for us to continue to support them in the best possible way," says Georg Moosreiner, CEO and co-founder of SEP AG. "The fact that we have been awarded as ' Leader' for the first time makes us particularly proud, of course. The entire SEP team takes the award as an motivation to provide the best possible service for our customers in order to secure the most important thing: their data and therefore their future."
The SEP sesam data protection solution is "Made in Germany" - from development to support - without backdoors and protects a wide range of virtual environments, operating systems, applications and databases. The universal support of complex system environments sets the SEP solution apart from those of its competitors. This makes it possible to consolidate several backup systems into a centrally managed hybrid backup solution. With the SEP Cloud Application Protection Service (CAPS), SEP also enables a GDPR-compliant cloud-to-cloud backup and data loss prevention solution for Microsoft 365, Salesforce, G Suite/Workspace and Dynamics 365.
