Acronis has announced the availability of Acronis Cyber Protect. The new cyber protection solution integrates backup, disaster, next-gen anti-malware, cybersecurity, and endpoint management tools into one service. Acronis Cyber Protect enables Managed Service Providers (MSPs) to make security a focus of their portfolio. This ensures that their business can meet client expectations for data, applications, systems security, and protection.
Recently, Acronis also revealed that 42 percent of organizations experienced a data loss event that resulted in downtime last year. That large number is most likely caused by the fact that though almost 90 percent are backing up the IT components they’re responsible for protecting, only 41 percent of respondents back up daily. This leaves many companies with gaps in the valuable data available for recovery.
With Acronis Cyber Protect, MSPs can proactively avoid cyberattacks, reduce downtime, ensure fast recoveries, and automate the configuration of client protection to counter cyberthreats. This results in improved margins, easier SLA compliance, and enhanced performance. Acronis Cyber Protect is designed to assist MSPs and their clients with finances, protecting employees, and remote work devices and users.
In a press statement, Founder and CEO of Acronis, Serguei “SB” Beloussov said, “traditional backup solutions are dead because they are not secure enough, and traditional anti-virus applications do not protect data from modern cyberthreats. Legacy solutions are no longer able to counter the dangers today’s businesses face. Service providers need to offer their clients integrated cyber protection that covers all Five Vectors of Cyber Protection – safety, accessibility, privacy, authenticity, and security. With Acronis Cyber Protect, service providers have the ability to deliver solutions that ensure their clients are #CyberFit and ready to face any new threats to their data, applications, and systems.”
AV-Test.org, the German security institute known for putting malware security solutions through rigorous testing, ran a pre-release version of Acronis Cyber Protect in March 2020 and the solution scored a verified 100 percent detection rate.
