Comodo Makes Acronis Backup Cloud its First Backup Solution for The Comodo ONE Managed Services Platform

Global leader in Cybersecurity Solutions Aligns with Acronis to Further Improve Data Protection and Accelerate Transition to the Cloud for MSPs

London - October 19, 2015 - Acronis®, the global leader in new generation data protection, today announced an agreement with Comodo, a global innovator and developer of cybersecurity solutions, to incorporate Acronis Backup Cloud into the Comodo ONE managed services platform. Managed service providers who are interested in taking advantage of the Acronis Backup Cloud offering will be able to access the technology directly from the Comodo ONE app store, enabling them to rapidly bring new secure data protection services to market, and to help grow revenue.

Comodo ONE is an integrated platform that offers Patch Management, Remote Monitoring and Management, and Service Desk, free of charge to small businesses, large enterprises, and managed service providers. The platform recently added Device Management and an application store to benefit its customers.

"When we launched Comodo ONE earlier this year, the vision was to help managed service providers replace complex multi-systems and eliminate manual tasks with standardised automated processes that are repeatable, secure, compliant, scalable and efficient," said Ilker Simsir, Product and Platform Manager for Comodo ONE. "We selected Acronis for its ability to support any data source, destination and delivery model, as well as its proven security capabilities and support for service provider workloads. We are happy to have Acronis be part of the Comodo ONE platform and we know managed service providers will see great benefits from this relationship."

Comodo has long been a leader in the development of cybersecurity solutions from enterprise through to the endpoint. As the recognised digital certificate global leader, Comodo builds on the strength of its proven and trusted security solutions to help protect and secure businesses across the globe.

Acronis is focused on providing companies with complete data protection through an integrated set of solutions, including backup, disaster recovery and file sync & share. Acronis believes that complete data protection not only requires the most advanced data safety, but also data security to protect companies from outside threats, and data privacy to ensure that they stay in control of their data at all times - in transit, on mobile devices and in the cloud. To achieve this, Acronis leverages a highly flexible and open architecture that supports easy integration with leading 3rd party solutions, the latest global encryption standards, including AES256, and private and secure search.
