Agio provides managed IT and cybersecurity services to firms at every stage, including technology hosting, monitoring, management, disaster prevention and recovery, managed security, cybersecurity consulting, and other high-end services.
Agio Managed Backup is designed to back up and recover your data from anywhere, at any time. Your most current data is stored on site for quick recovery, and all your data is further protected at two highly secure, geographically dispersed datacenters located in Allentown, PA, and Seattle, WA. What’s more, our advanced data deduplication process reduces the amount of physical data backed up, creating a cost-efficient solution for you by reducing network utilization. This enables seamless back up, protection, and recovery of your critical data, while reducing costs and meeting today’s demands for speed, efficiency, and scalability.
When it comes to backing up your data, recovery is everything. When something goes wrong, all you care about is getting your data back—now. Two important processes help us achieve 100% recovery peace of mind for our clients:
This unique feature guarantees data integrity with absolutely no corruption, for successful restores every time. Autonomic Healing continuously monitors the backup repository for data corruption; if corrupt data is found, it corrects it, removes it, or reports that a correction is needed. Beyond just checking file headers and links, Autonomic Healing goes even further, verifying the logical validity of data, such as invalid names, name duplication, ID duplication, potential reconstruction failure, consistency, etc.
We ensure data is restorable by simulating real recoveries without actually writing the restored data. Simulated recoveries are run in the DS-System memory, which is flushed once the process is complete. What’s more, we use digital-signature-based validation to ensure file integrity.
Finally, Agio Managed Backup offers the flexibility of customizing your recovery time for certain blocks of data, which comes in handy when we're talking about your mission-critical application data. Depending on your Recovery Time Objective (RTO), we offer two optional features:
Continuous Data Protection (CDP) can be selected for specific backup sets to guarantee you are up and running quickly with minimal data loss.
Agio's DR Platform replicates your data in real time, which we can snapshot to provide complete recovery in minutes, instead of hours.
Traditional backup and recovery can be messy, but Agio Managed Backup allows you to set it and forget it. We simplify the installation process and ongoing maintenance with our agentless architecture, eliminating downtime, disruption, and complexity. But it’s called Managed Backup for a reason—we do the work. We monitor your backups 24x7x365 with Agio Monitoring System (AMS); if a job fails, Agio’s proprietary Enterprise Service Platform (ESP) flags it to our team for remediation. We understand, however, with responsibility comes the need for transparency. Agio Managed Backup offers you full access to an easy-to-manage, centralized, unified view of your systems, users, and devices—even when data is backed up in silos across your environment. So no matter how complex your disaster recovery and business continuity strategies are, we’ve got you covered. ×

In today’s world of constantly evolving cybersecurity threats, a service is only as good as its security. With Agio Managed Backup, your data is protected, twice over. Not only is your data backed up to Agio’s secure private cloud, but our cloud is further shielded by Agio Managed Security, a 24x7x365 service dedicated to providing 360° security. Even if you experience a hack in your environment, your data is 100% protected in our network. What’s more, our agentless architecture actually enhances the security of your overall environment. By going agentless, you no longer have to rely on agents that need to be installed on each machine. This removes open, vulnerable ports on your firewall for all backup sources, which effectively eradicates all points of attack inherent with agent-based models. Finally, it’s important to note that Agio Managed Backup also includes:
AES 256-bit in-flight and at-rest data encryption
Government-approved NIST FIPS 140-2 security certification
Customer-controlled encryption key and authentication
Agio Incident Response is a planned program designed for the unplanned. Over the course of 12 months we onboard, organize, prep and continually test your ability to respond when a breach happens. We get, and keep you, battle-ready so when an attack happens, we mobilize immediately and effectively, neutralizing the threat and containing your exposure.
Here’s what the program includes:
o Environment Discovery
o Data Mapping
o Incident Response Plan Development & Review
- Incident Response Policy
- Data Classification Policy
- Incident Response Procedure
- Incident Response Communication-Chain of Command Procedure
o Tactical/Operational Incident Response Tabletop Exercise
Monthly Incident Response Readiness Review
Quarterly Status Review (monthly for first three months after going live)
o Intelligence Briefings
o Cybersecurity Events & Incidents Statistics Review
Annual Executive IR Tabletop Exercise
Incident Response Annual Review & Report
Red Team Security Assessment* (annually, if applicable)
It’s about practicing chaos. You’ll never be able to predict the specific type of breach your firm will ultimately fall victim to, but you can predict how you respond. And that response is comprised of the people you have in place, the processes you’ve implemented, and the technology that supports it all. How do these three facets interact with one another when tragedy strikes? Where are the loopholes, the gaps, and the ambiguity within your plan?
These are the details, when left undiscovered, unremediated and unrehearsed, create chaos on top of chaos for organizations.
We’re here to fix that. By proactively learning your environment, mapping what data lives where, reviewing your policies with a critical eye, and then practicing chaos, we improve your reaction to a breach. Your response goes from languid, haphazard and insufficient to immediate, efficient, and most importantly, effective.
It’s tempting to sit back and hope that a breach won’t happen. Or maybe when it does, that it’s not that bad. But when your company’s operations, reputation, and even your career are on the line, hope isn’t a strategy. Because even if the initial breach doesn’t bring down your environment, the longer the malicious activity goes undetected and unaddressed, the worse it gets. What may have started as a cybersecurity event, can quickly escalate to an incident and a full-blown breach.
TIME IS MONEY
Then there’s the financials. Bringing in an Incident Response team only after a breach guarantees one thing; you’re going to pay. Why? Because the firm you bring in, even if they’re the best, doesn’t know your environment. They don’t know where your data lives; they don’t know how you collect and store that data (for analysis); they don’t know your policies; and they don’t know who’s involved in your Incident Response Plan. They’re flying blind, and it’s going to take them time to get up to speed. That’s time you’re paying for, and even more importantly, that’s time in which the breach is getting worse.
By investing in an Incident Response service, proactively, you drastically reduce your time to resolution, which means less money out the door, less exposure and ultimately less damage. And you look good for preparing for the inevitable. You took chaos, mapped it, prepared for it, and even amortized it (i.e the cost). Well played.
