Acronis acquires DeviceLock to add data leak prevention and device control to growing cyber protection portfolio

Acronis, a global leader in cyber protection, has announced the acquisition of DeviceLock, a leading provider of endpoint device/port control and data leak prevention software for enterprises and government institutions around the world. As part of the agreement, DeviceLock will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Acronis.

A clear leader in endpoint data loss prevention (DLP), protecting four million computers in more than 5,000 organisations worldwide, DeviceLock enjoys a global customer presence across a wide variety of business types, including banking and finance, medical, pharmaceutical, government and defence, manufacturing and retail.

DeviceLock DLP is designed to stop data leaks at the source, as nearly two thirds of serious data leakage incidents are caused by employees, contractors or visitors – whether through unintentional mistakes or malicious intent. DeviceLock solutions provide top-class protection of valuable data from this serious insider threat. The acquisition of these new capabilities will help advance Acronis’ mission to deliver world-class cyber protection to every business.

Acronis will integrate DeviceLock’s technology into the Acronis Cyber Platform, making new services available through the Acronis Cyber Cloud Solutions portal. At the same time, Acronis will continue to work on new versions of the DeviceLock DLP complex while maintaining full technical support.
