Acronis has announced the global launch ofAcronis Cyber Protect Cloud, the first and unique cyber protection solution that integrates backup, Disaster Recovery, next-generation anti-malware, antivirus, cybersecurity and management tools all in one single console. It delivers AI-powered integration of data protection and cybersecurity and empowers users to address modern cyberthreats. This is the result of an effort from Acronis R&D centres (Schaffhausen, Sofia and Singapore), 500 developers and analysts.
Backup is dead and we cannot survive without computers anymore
“Traditional backup is dead because it is not secure enough, and traditional antiviruses do not protect data from modern cyberthreats. Legacy solutions are no longer able to counteract the dangers businesses face,” said Acronis Founder and CEO Serguei ‘SB’ Beloussov. Over the past decades technology has developed and progressed at an incredible pace. What was impossible just ten years ago is now commonplace. Cyber Protect Cloud allows organisations to share highly sensitive data and to protect conference call applications, which is a critical resource for most organisations worldwide these days. Technology, traditionally an enabler of industry competition and growth, is now key in the fight against the pandemic. It is also critical for organisations, in particular health systems, to secure their technology applications to minimise the risk posed by cyberthreats such as ransomware and the associated human, data and financial losses.
How is Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud helpful against cyberthreats?
It is a demonstration of the power of integration. It features one unified licensing model, one agent and backend, one management console, one user interface and a high level of integration among services – sharing data and automating actions to greatly improve the security for endpoint and edge devices.
- For MSPs: The tool eliminates complexity and enables them to efficiently make security a focal point of their portfolios and meet their clients’ expectations. It brings vendor consolidation and frees up time to focus on other business operations.
“The spike in remote workers is also creating an increased need for new, secure workloads,” explained Indresh Yadav, CEO, VMotion IT. “Leveraging Acronis Cyber Cloud, we are also working with customers to offer secure file sharing options. Access control and permissions and the ability to set specific terms around URL sharing is key.”
- For enterprises and individuals: It allows them to monitor devices and automatically stop threats.
