Pulvermueller’s recognition in the CRN Top 25 Innovators list is an essential accolade that showcases how his leadership accelerated innovation. His leadership occurred during a pivotal moment in Acronis’ growth in providing cyber protection to MSPs and businesses of all sizes around the globe.

These transformations are prompting organizations to seek a modern, simple and integrated approach to cybersecurity and data protection, which they have found in Acronis, and the use of our various suites of services.
The Acronis flagship product, Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud, stands out as an innovative solution, due to its unique integration of backup and next-generation, AI-based anti-malware, antivirus and endpoint protection management functionalities.

Acronis is committed to forging lasting relationships with our partners. In addition to providing cyber protection, Acronis works tirelessly with its MSPs to offer exclusive partnership offerings like our #TeamUp program, which pairs all-star sports teams with local MSPs to provide cyber protection to the largest sports organizations across the globe.
Pulvermueller’s role as CEO has also helped our philanthropic and environmental initiatives, including the Acronis Cyber Foundation Program and ESG efforts, to flourish.
