New Acronis Access Solutions Mobilise Businesses of all Sizes, Leverage Employee and Corporate Devices, and Safeguard Digital Assets

Acronis Access 7 Delivers Easier, More Complete, Safer Content Access, Sync and Share Than Competing Cloud-only Solutions

Reading, UK - November 12, 2014Acronis®, the global leader in new generation data protection, announced Acronis Access 7, which includes a data access, sync and share edition for small to midsize businesses (SMBs) and a separate edition for larger enterprises. Designed to address modern business needs including mobile device proliferation, business and employee requirements to support ‘bring your own device’ (BYOD), Acronis Access Advanced 7 and Acronis Access 7 are easy, complete and safe on-premise solutions offering total data control and security anywhere from any device – smartphone, tablet, laptop, PC or Mac®.

When employees use cloud-only file sharing solutions that are not approved by their IT department, this poses significant security risks to their businesses. Acronis Access solutions offer easy, complete and safe alternatives to many of the popular file sharing solutions on the market that leverages all existing customer infrastructure and data with no need for migration, allowing employees to securely share data both internally and externally without putting company data at risk. 

Mobilising Small and Midsize Businesses (SMB)

Designed exclusively for SMBs, Acronis Access 7 is the easiest mobile file access, sync and share solution for companies to buy, use and administer. The product allows employees to remain productive and efficient while travelling, enabling them to access and edit company documents without data leakage risk, easily share updated financial spreadsheets or presentations with their colleagues, and safely share content with customers, partners or prospects. Acronis understands that mobile devices have become an integral work environment component for productive and successful SMB organisations, changing the way to do business. In fact, 67 percent of SMBs view mobile solutions as critical to their businesses, and 83 percent have already deployed mobile apps to help improve employee productivity.

 “Acronis Access 7 serves as a secure alternative to cloud solutions and allows sensitive business content to remain on premises and be shared under IT control,” said Terri McClure, ESG Senior Analyst. “And SMB organisations that can’t afford more in-depth and complex MDM capabilities will appreciate having built-in core functionality.”

Supporting Enterprise Requirements

Specifically designed for enterprise organisations, Acronis Access Advanced 7 is the easiest access, sync, and share solution for enterprise users, providing IT administrators with complete control over the company’s data and files through:

  • Active Directory integration for seamless user management
  • Highly granular management capabilities for security policies and content control and compliance
  • Audit log for visibility on content access, edition and share
  • Certified encryption to meet stringent regulatory standards
  • Enhanced authentication to improve security

Acronis Access Advanced 7 improves employee and team productivity by offering an easy and intuitive user interface, the ability to edit Microsoft® Office documents and annotate PDF files, and to securely share critical content with internal and/or external users. Best suited for larger organisations with established IT departments, Acronis Access Advanced 7 can scale to any number of users and support an unlimited amount of access servers. In addition, the product integrates seamlessly with leading mobile device management (MDM) solutions.

“Securely sharing critical business data with employees, customers and partners is crucial for businesses of all sizes -- they shouldn’t have to rely on the hassle of email attachments, USB sticks, shipping materials and CDs to access and share corporate information anytime, anywhere” said Serguei Beloussov, Acronis CEO.” Acronis Access 7 balances the needs of employees and IT by enabling easy content access, sync and share while ensuring security, control and compliance.”

"Our use of Acronis Access products and solutions has positively impacted how our organisation does business.
