Acronis summit attracts 9,000 attendees

Cyber protection company Acronis has concluded the Acronis Global Cyber Summit 2020, which attracted more than 9,000 professionals from around the world who are interested in the latest strategies and technological advances in the field of cyber protection.

This year’s summit was offered as a free virtual event from 19-21 October and featured more than 150 thought leaders, cybersecurity experts, channel professionals, industry executives, and sports stars who led 60 sessions. The entire programme is publicly available for free until 20 December via on-demand video streams.

Serguei Beloussov (pictured above at the summit), founder and CEO, Acronis, explained, “Today’s challenges of remote work, IT demands, and cyberthreats have driven tremendous interest in the solutions and opportunities that comprehensive cyber protection delivers – both to businesses and the service providers who support them. The success of the 2020 Summit illustrates this thirst for knowledge, as IT channel and IT team professionals joined the Acronis community to gain actionable insights, solutions, and strategies they could immediately put into practice. We are proud to have delivered such a helpful, informational event.”

Acronis delivered three major announcements regarding the company’s future during the event. First was the launch of the Acronis ‘CyberFit’ Academy, a new training and certification program designed to deliver valuable insights to channel partners on how to position, sell, and deploy cyber protection solutions.

Secondly, the company announced the expansion of its global network of cloud data centres. This includes new facilities in Canada, New Zealand, and Bhutan, as well as more than 100 micro data centres in emerging markets. Thirdly, Acronis revealed an integrated solution for managed service providers (MSPs) designed to enhance the protection of their clients’ Citrix Workspace assets, no matter where they sit. This offering will be known as Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud integration with Citrix Workspace.
