A key criterion that lead to Acronis Access' leadership rating is the capability to be deployed both as a cloud-based and an on-premise solution. Also important was the ability to safely access, save and reuse documents across different operating systems.

This is the second award that Acronis Access has won in 2014 for its mobile content management (MCM) and enterprise file sharing and syncing; Networking Computing Magazine recognised Acronis' Access as the 'mobility product of the year' in its annual awards in March.

"Businesses are looking to maximise data protection as well as employee productivity. Acronis offers the first solution to turn any mobile device into a true business platform by integrating both mobile content management (MCM) and enterprise file sync and sharing. We are pleased to be recognised for a second time this year as a leader in the mobile market, especially above legacy vendors. " said Alan Laing, Vice President EMEA.

Acronis Access is a unified Enterprise class solution to access corporate content, sync, and share and access business user files from anywhere and any device.
