Endorsements and Recognition

In most cases, administrators can’t tell when a record is being pulled from Assureon as opposed to the primary storage system, and the system improved our staff efficiency by keeping all data ‘near-line’ for quick retrieval. In addition, we particularly like Assureon’s ability to provide a very efficient DR solution.

Integrity Checks/Audits

Integrity Checks/Audits

Protect your high-value data and fulfill all corporate governance and government regulatory needs with constant data verification. At a minimum all files are stored as two copies; a background process continually scans files and repairs them – if necessary, by using their copies even if they aren’t being accessed. Every file or object is fingerprinted so its history and contents can’t be altered after the fact (e.g. Write Once Read Many or WORM).

Virtual Shortcuts

Virtual Shortcuts

Files are transparently offloaded from primary storage to Assureon using virtual shortcuts. The Assureon Client provides you with the option to store virtual shortcuts in memory for quicker user access and recovery if needed. Virtual shortcuts reduce the IT administrator requirements to restore individual user files. If the Assureon Client server goes down, just bring up another machine, install the Assureon Client on it, and the files instantly reappear.

Cloud Connectivity

Cloud Connectivity

Assureon can be configured to allow multiple applications, departments or even companies to securely operate with complete separation.  Assureon’s virtual file system enables robust multi-tenancy features that make it ideal for cloud-based service providers and remote branches that need to remain separated.



Enjoy the confidence of our optional AES256 encryption, the highest level of commercial encryption available. Each file is secured with three copies of a unique encryption key - one onsite, two at separate remote managed locations. Additionally, Assureon provides auditing features that keep track of all users who were permitted or denied file access.
