At B33 in Hall 2, Acronis will demonstrate advanced new data protection technology with active protection against ransomware, blockchain-based data signing, and secure cloud storage.

München, 16.03.2017 - Acronis, a global leader in hybrid cloud data protection and storage is proud to attend CeBIT 2017 in Hannover, Germany to present the world's first and only data protection solutions that fully meet today's business needs. Without Acronis' new innovative technology, businesses remain vulnerable to damaging cyber attacks, data tampering, and irreparable data loss.

Various studies indicate that one laptop is stolen every 53 seconds*, 390,000+ new malware programs are reported every day**, and 60 percent of companies close within six months of a data disaster***.

Acronis solutions, based on Acronis Hybrid Cloud architecture, address all these needs by combining backup, disaster recovery, anti-ransomware, and blockchain-based data verification technologies into unified, powerful, and easy products for personal and business use.

"CeBIT gives us a great opportunity to demonstrate the value of our innovative technology. The world is under attack form raging ransomware and catastrophic data loss. If you don't use Acronis solutions, you put yourself, your data, and your business at risk. Acronis has the most modern software, offering complete data protection and active defense against ransomware," said John Zanni, CMO at Acronis.
