ASG Software Solutions, a provider of services and software for the management of applications, content, performance, security and other IT areas, announced that it has acquired Atempo, a provider of data protection and backup management software.

ASG says the integration of Atempo’s backup and archiving technologies expands ASG’s ability to automate and simplify the management of complex IT environments to reduce risk and improve service delivery. Details of the acquisition were not released.

“Our customers are dealing with exponential data growth and increasing complexity in meeting e-discovery and compliance regulations,” Arthur Allen, president and CEO at ASG, said in a statement.

By integrating Atempo’s technologies into ASG’s solutions, “we are able to provide customers with a scalable, long-term data protection solution that works across any infrastructure and on any platform,” Allen said. “Atempo’s flexibility is a perfect match for enhancing several of our areas of expertise, including our cloud orchestration, information management and infrastructure management solutions.”

Atempo has more than 4,500 customers in industries such as manufacturing, media and entertainment, healthcare, telecommunications, government and higher education. Its archiving technology is focused on the long-term preservation of digital assets, storage resource optimization and capacity planning, metadata management and ensuring e-discovery accessibility and meeting compliance requirements.

The company offers enterprise server data protection, including virtual machines, as well as protection for databases, laptops and desktop computers.

“ASG provides Atempo a platform for growth and expansion into the cloud market and a wider global reach,” Michael Wall, Atempo CEO, said in a statement. “Atempo’s current customers and partners can benefit from ASG’s broader cloud solutions, as well as their expertise in other key areas, such as content management, data/metadata management, and infrastructure and operations management.”
