AvePoint Cloud Backup received highest current offering rating; only vendor to receive differentiated rating, the highest possible score, in all three criteria of Microsoft 365, Google Workspace, and Salesforce

JERSEY CITY, N.J., Nov. 30, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AvePoint (NASDAQ: AVPT), the most advanced SaaS and data management platform provider, today was named a Leader in The Forrester New Wave™: SaaS Application Data Protection, Q4 2021. AvePoint received the highest current offering score of all 10 vendors for Cloud Backup and was the only vendor to receive a differentiated rating, the highest possible score, in all three criteria of Microsoft 365, Google Workspace and Salesforce. In addition, AvePoint received differentiated ratings in security and privacy, usability, storage options, planned enhancement, and innovation roadmap criteria.

According to Forrester, there is an “ever-growing catalogue of SaaS applications that businesses are using,” which requires a sophisticated SaaS Application Data Protection (SADP) strategy. Today, AvePoint Cloud Backup supports Microsoft 365, Dynamics 365, Google Workspace, and Salesforce, which was introduced this year as part of AvePoint’s multi-cloud expansion and commitment to data protection.

After evaluating the core SADP offering and platform support breadth of ten vendors, Forrester states that “AvePoint offers strong Google Workspace, Microsoft 365, and Salesforce backup capabilities, and stands out with support for advanced user filtering, differentiated retention policies, data residency requirements, flexible storage arrangements, and features like chatbots in Teams.” Further, the Forrester report states that “AvePoint is the best fit for companies that need core SaaS application data protection and global support.”

“We believe the results of Forrester’s report, especially since it is the first of its kind, confirm there is a massive, emerging need to protect SaaS data,” said Dr. Tianyi Jiang (TJ), CEO and Co-Founder, AvePoint. “The results, in our opinion, also validate our confidence that AvePoint has the infrastructure and technical capabilities to be a vital partner in multi-SaaS backup for today’s businesses. As the only vendor to receive a differentiated rating in all three criteria of Microsoft, Google Workspace and Salesforce, we believe the research Forrester presents is indicative of our investments in multi-SaaS capabilities that will continue to complement our strong roots in the Microsoft ecosystem.”

AvePoint Cloud Backup provides customers with unlimited restores, full fidelity backup four times per day and sophisticated retention features to prevent data loss, recover from permission issues, or even ransomware. According to the report, AvePoint was the only vendor to receive differentiated ratings in all three criteria of Microsoft 365, Google Workspace and Salesforce backup capabilities, and the security and privacy criterion. AvePoint offers products with authority to operate under FedRAMP and is an ISO and SOC 2 Type II certified vendor. Security is paramount in building all AvePoint SaaS offerings, which protect hundreds of petabytes of data.

As the report references, AvePoint Cloud Backup is differentiated for its usability, which includes virtual assistant AVA, a bot that restores lost or deleted content for end-users, and storage options, where customers have the choice of hosted or bring-your-own storage. It is available for direct customers across 14 global data centers, MSPs to provide backup services to their customers, and can be found within over 100 cloud marketplaces worldwide.
