Introducing eIDAS eSignature: Strengthening compliance in Acronis Advanced File Sync & Share

Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud
for service providers

At Acronis, we are constantly striving to enhance our solutions to meet the evolving needs of our customers and partners. Today, we are excited to announce a significant development in our Advanced File Sync and Share for Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud: integration of eIDAS electronic signature functionality, providing our users with a seamless and secure experience when sharing and signing documents.

eIDAS, short for "Electronic Identification, Authentication, and Trust Services," is a European Union regulation that sets forth standards for electronic signatures and provides a legal framework for their use across member states. eIDAS aims to foster trust and reliability in the digital world, ensuring the security and authenticity of electronic transactions. By adhering to the eIDAS regulation, Acronis reinforces its commitment to data protection and compliance, offering our partners and customers enhanced security and legal validity when conducting electronic transactions.

eIDAS-compliant electronic signatures provide several key benefits:

-          Legally binding: eIDAS signatures are legally recognized and enforceable in courts throughout the European Union, providing peace of mind and assurance to all parties involved.

-          Data integrity: eIDAS signatures employ advanced cryptographic techniques to ensure integrity and nonrepudiation of signed documents, protecting against tampering and fraud.

-          Compliance: By utilizing eIDAS-compliant signatures, organizations can demonstrate compliance with regulatory requirements, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Acronis Advanced File Sync and Share now offers seamless eSignature functionality, empowering users to securely sign and share documents directly from the platform. This eliminates the need for separate eSignature tools, streamlining workflows and enhancing productivity.

Key benefits of integrated file sharing with eSigning include:

-          Enhanced collaboration: Users can collaborate on documents in real-time, exchanging files securely and obtaining legally binding signatures without leaving the platform.

-          Increased efficiency: With eSigning capabilities integrated into the file sharing process, businesses can significantly reduce the time and effort required for document management, accelerating critical workflows.

-          Improved security: Acronis Advanced File Sync and Share ensures end-to-end encryption, protecting sensitive information throughout the document signing and sharing process.

-          Seamless user experience: Our intuitive interface enables users to adopt eSigning effortlessly, ensuring a smooth transition to digital document workflows.

This integration of eIDAS electronic signatures into Advanced File Sync and Share brings substantial value to both our MSP partners and customers.

-          Expanded service offerings: MSPs can now provide their customers with a comprehensive solution for file sharing, collaboration and eSigning, enhancing their portfolio and differentiating themselves in the market.

-          Increased revenue opportunities: By offering a value-added service that combines secure file sharing with eSignature functionality, MSPs can tap into new revenue streams and deepen their relationships with existing clients.
