Kaspersky Lab and Acronis prepare customers for a worst case scenarioBurlington, MassachusettsApril 29, 2016
In a recent survey, 40 per cent of Europeans admitted the loss or compromise of data stored on digital devices would cause immense distress.
Device damage, theft or ransomware attacks are just some of the risks threatening our precious data, and without a back-up, we risk those documents, images and memories being lost forever.
Kaspersky Lab, one of the world’s fastest-growing cybersecurity companies, and Acronis, a global leader in hybrid cloud data protection, have teamed up to provide customers with the opportunity to back-up vital files and documents to be immediately accessible in the event of data loss or theft.
Kaspersky Total Security – Multi Device Identity Protection Edition will now offer an enhanced 10GB of storage in a secure and encrypted digital vault than can be accessed anywhere with backup provided by Acronis – that equates to more than 10,000 pictures, 2,000 music tracks and work documents.
The alliance will also provide SMB businesses with a wide range of advanced backup solutions, powered by Acronis, for different types of servers, virtualisation platforms and workloads. It will provide centralised management, data deduplication, tape support and other functionality appropriate for SMB companies.
Commenting on the partnership, Alexander Moiseev, Managing Director, Europe at Kaspersky Lab says, “Our partnership with Acronis allows us to give our customers the additional peace of mind that their data is accounted for and can be retrieved when needed. Now all of your memories, files, pictures and other assets are securely backed up in real time in the reliable encrypted vault. If you or your employee should lose your device, your files are quickly and securely restored from the vault.”
John Zanni, CMO at Acronis adds, “Acronis is committed to providing customers with solutions that deliver data safety, data security and data privacy, especially for mobile workers and devices. We’re honoured to work with security leader Kaspersky Lab to bring this best-in-class combination to market, addressing the critical need for SMBs and consumers to provide highly secure data storage, access and backup for mobile workers.”
The new add-ons from Acronis are already available when purchasing Kaspersky Total Security – Multi Device Identity Protection Edition and with Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business and Kaspersky Security for Virtualisation products in selected markets. For more information please click here.
