Holzkirchen, Germany – May 09, 2018 – SEP AG, a provider of platform independent hybrid backup and disaster recovery solutions, is the only vendor “Made in Germany” in techconsult’s Professional User Ratings – Security Solutions (PUR-S) Diamant 2018. SEP was labeled as a “High Performer” in its class and also achieved an above-average rating in the areas of overall portfolio, service and support, sustainability and innovation. A total of 2,150 companies evaluated the most important vendors in the field of backup and recovery in more than 60 criteria across 14 subcategories. The analyst firm techconsult established a rating of security solution providers based exclusively on the evaluation of product users. Further details about the evaluation, along with an interview with Sebastian Moosreiner, the Managing Director and shareholder of SEP, can be found in a research note available for download at awards.sep.de.

Sebastian Moosreiner highlighted a few important points for SEP in an interview with techconsult. 

“We’re particularly happy that our overall product portfolio was rated as one of the best, which reflects our efforts to support a wide variety of applications, databases, operating systems, virtualization platforms, architectures and storage systems,”said Moosreiner. 

He particularly emphasized that the “motto ‘We support the systems no one else can!’ describes another great advantage of our solutions. We support less widespread, new technologies to the market, helping users consistently secure and quickly restore their IT environments, some of which are highly individual.”

In the conclusion of their evaluation of SEP, techconsult’s analysts wrote in a research note, “SEP convinces users with consistently strong performance from both the vendor and solution side, achieving a solid result in its overall evaluation. Its solution-side evaluation is worth particular mention, where SEP is at Champion level with a score of 78.5, reaching a position ahead of all but the Champions.”

The data backup solution SEP sesam is “Made in Germany” – from development to support – and secures a wide range of virtual environments, operating systems, applications and databases. SEP’s solution sets itself apart from its competitors with its universal support of complex system environments, which techconsult’s customer evaluation survey confirms. The solution consolidates multiple backup systems into a centrally managed hybrid backup solution. SEP sesam keeps business-critical data available at all times, saving time and reducing capital demands and operating costs. SEP’s consistent implementation of EU GDPR requirements also enables companies to use a secure solution for their data backup.

About Professional User Rating: Security Solutions
The second installment of the “Professional User Rating: Security Solutions 2018” (PUR-S) is the result of more than 2,150 user companies rating IT security providers and their solutions in six product areas. The evaluation covered more than 60 criteria across 14 subcategories under the dimensions of Company Rating and Technology/Solution Rating.
As an expression of the collective user experience, the Professional User Rating provides companies with a solid basis for selecting suitable solutions to offer as well as how to prioritize and align their broad IT security offering with their own criteria in the selection process. The fact that evaluations come from companies actually using the solutions grants the ratings high practical relevance.
