Paragon Software Group, a leader in data protection, backup and disaster recovery (BDR) technology, today announced it was selected to CIO Review’s annual list of the “20 Most Promising VMware Solution Providers.” A leading publication serving IT executives and chief information officers (CIOs), CIO Review publishes the list annually to promote technology excellence and entrepreneurship.

The winning companies, chosen by a panel of experts and members of the CIO Review editorial board, were profiled in the magazine, with Paragon featured here. In addition, the complete list of winners is also available on the CIO Review website.

“As a VMware Technology partner, we are extremely pleased and proud to be a part of this prestigious list,” said Tom Fedro, President, Paragon Software Group Corp. “We set our sights on stepping up our portfolio of BDR solutions for VMware, Hyper-V and other hypervisors more than a decade ago, and we continue to lead the market with solutions that address the needs of this space head on. Whether it’s data migration, agentless disk imaging, backup or replication of both offline and online Windows and Linux virtual machines, Paragon has the virtualization needs of our partners and customers covered.”

Paragon’s award-winning Paragon Protect & Restore (PPR) BDR software, available worldwide, is the company’s flagship offering for VMware, Hyper-V and other hypervisors. Supporting both physical servers and hypervisor hosts with a single BDR solution, it offers features such as VMware Changed Block Tracking (CBT) and the patent-pending Paragon Image Transfer Engine (ITE) to ensure full and incremental backups or replicas of critical enterprise data.

With PPR, Paragon delivers a comprehensive feature set for agentless and agent-based protection of servers and workstations. “Although PPR is fully enterprise class, it cost-effectively addresses the data protection needs of small to midsize businesses (SMBs) so that they can focus on the kaleidoscope of other issues spinning on their plate,” Fedro adds.

PPR integrates with VMware APIs and minimizes the size of all virtual machine backup images, resulting in minimal backup windows. The result is that SMB data is never at risk of being lost or unprotected. Also significant for budget- and capacity-conscious SMBs is that PPR backups and replica snapshots consume as little as one-tenth the storage space of similar solutions.

“Paragon Software Group has been on our radar for some time for stirring a revolution in the VMware space, and we are happy to showcase them this year due to their continuing excellence in delivering top-notch technology-driven solutions,” said Harvi Sachar, Publisher and Founder, CIO Review. “Paragon Software Group’s solutions have continued to break new ground within the past year, benefiting its customers around the globe, and we’re excited to have them featured on our top companies list.”

Protect & Restore is available through Paragon reseller partners including CDW, SHI, En Pointe and Softmart. Resellers interested in more information on Paragon’s Pure Channel Program, please visit or call 888.347.5462.
