We're able to address most client backup and recovery requirements, but the GUI needs simplification.
What is most valuable?Asigra's agentless concept makes it so easy to install a client proof-of-concept (POC).

In addition, Asigra supports wide variety of OS and VMs which means very rarely do we encounter a client… more»

What needs improvement?I think Asigra still needs to simplify their GUI. I think Asigra really improved the GUI with their 12x release but there's still a lot of functions and options. During any installation we take time to sit down with the customer to ensure they understand how to navigate the GUI.
