SCHAFFHAUSEN, Switzerland, October 07, 2013 – Following on from its victory as IP Expo’s * exhibitor of the year in 2012, Acronis, has today announced that three of its industry experts will be speaking at IP Expo 2013.

IP Expo is an annual IT infrastructure event featuring more than 200 industry-leading exhibitors and thought-provoking keynotes from high profile industry speakers. As well as presenting its enterprise mobility and file sharing solutions, Acronis will also be demonstrating its new backup and recovery solution for vCloud environments at the event.

Anders Lofgern, VP Mobility Solutions Product Management, James Rawbone, Senior Partner Account Manager EMEA Enterprise Mobility Solutions and Kieran O’Connor, UK & Ireland Virtualisation & Mobility Alliances Manager, will be discussing how the rapid adoption of BYOD/CYOD in the workplace is creating an increasingly mobile, diverse and dynamic environment but also leaving virtual platforms open to risks.
