Acronis launches new tools to tackle modern cybersecurity challenges

Acronis has launched several new cyber protection solutions – Acronis Cyber Protect, Acronis Cyber Platform and Acronis Cyber Infrastructure to solve modern data protection and cybersecurity challenges.

Introduced at the inaugural Acronis Global Cyber Summit currently being held in Miami FL, Acronis’ new solutions deliver modern cyber protection capabilities to replace the legacy solutions that no longer meet modern IT challenges.

The ability to trust data is a major challenge of the modern digital world for execution of data-driven decisions. The rising adoption of machine learning and artificial intelligence allows businesses to quickly and effectively make business decisions, while requiring the collection, storage and use of data that can be trusted. The growing number of devices and distribution of data between multiple devices, locations and cloud services creates complexity in infrastructure, and this decentralised infrastructure is more vulnerable to cyberattacks. Acronis builds on the expertise of protecting its 500,000 business customers and 5.5 million home users with Acronis Active Protection technology stopping over 400,000 ransomware attacks in 2018, saving businesses and individuals hundreds of millions of dollars in damages.

“Today’s reliance on data is creating new challenges that companies have never had to face before and their legacy solutions were never designed to handle,” said Serguei Beloussov, founder and CEO of Acronis. “A new approach to data management and protection is needed to meet these modern challenges – one that addresses the safety, accessibility, privacy, authenticity, and security of data. Acronis calls these the Five Vectors of Cyber Protection, or SAPAS, and our suite of cyber protection solutions are designed specifically address all of the vectors.”

Available through Acronis’ worldwide network of more than 50,000 partners, the new and updated solutions include:

•Acronis Cyber Protect, integrates seven key cyber protection capabilities into one easy-to-use solution – including backup, disaster recovery, AI-based protection against malware, data authenticity certification and validation, vulnerability assessments, patch management and remote monitoring and management.
•Acronis Cyber Platform, provides developers and ISVs the ability to customise, extend and integrate Acronis Cyber Protection solutions.
•Acronis Cyber Infrastructure, delivers cost-efficient, easy-to-use and reliable hyper-converged infrastructure optimised for cyber protection deployments.

“Cybersecurity and data protection have traditionally been treated as separate disciplines, but enterprise appetites for data and analysis make this delineation increasingly difficult to maintain. We advise organisations to embrace this change and use data growth and digital transformation initiatives as an opportunity to adopt the concepts of cyber protection,” IDC’s Andrew Smith, Research Manager, Enterprise Infrastructure. “Organisations that pursue a comprehensive cyber protection program will be better protected against data loss, data theft and data manipulation.”
Acronis’ newly announced solutions provide easy, efficient and secure cyber protection due to the complete integration at the business, user interface, management, product and technology levels. As a result, customers get better protection, higher availability of systems and significantly lower overhead to support the solution than any other of non-integrated solutions.
