THE AGE OF DATA-DRIVEN SPORTS: INTER SCORES COMPLETE CYBER PROTECTION

 Meet the Official Cyber Protection Partner of Inter – Acronis scores another sports partnership with the giant of European football

Acronis, a global leader in cyber protection and top provider for international sports teams, today announced it is joining forces with FC INTERNAZIONALE MILANO, or Inter, the star club of European football and one of the most supported teams on the planet. The official partnership launch took place in Acronis headquarters in Singapore, with Inter’s Tommaso Berni, Team Captain Samir Handanovic, and Corporate Chief Executive Officer Alessandro Antonello in attendance to celebrate the groundbreaking deal between these high-performing brands. 

Inter is extremely popular in Italy and around the world, with more than 250 million supporters globally – and the club is now entering a new era. The new partnership with Acronis will provide Inter with complete protection of all data, applications, and systems, which includes large amounts of data generated by the club to help its performance on the pitch and in communicating with its fans around the world. Using Acronis’backupdisaster recovery and storage solutions, Inter can now store and share data more easily, efficiently and securely than ever before – allowing the Italian club to enhance their performance and reach new heights. 

"While Inter has a century-long history, it takes full advantage of modern innovations, specifically in cyber protection. Inter’s vision is similar to ours because they realize that data is the most valuable resource today and needs advanced protection. That’s where Acronis can lend a hand with our innovative cyber protection solutions," said Serguei Beloussov, Founder and CEO of Acronis.

This new partnershipbrings to life Acronis’ vision of modern cyber protection. Today’s data needs are constantly growing – from the amount of data generated to its different uses to the number of data sources and locations. The only way for an organization like Inter to fully manage and safeguard that data is to address all Five Vectors of Cyber Protection – ensuring the safety, accessibility, privacy, authenticity, and security of data (SAPAS). 

Acronis is known to provide the fastest backup on the market. With Acronis’ solutions, Inter can now restore data in under 15 seconds and securely access data from any location – giving the team greater control when on the road.

“It’s great having an industry expert like Acronis as a partner, given their strong presence and expertise in data-driven sports," said FC Internazionale Milano Corporate CEO Alessandro Antonello. "We have very high hopes that this technology partnership will help Inter advance even further, shape it to fit the modern high standards of international sports – and be better prepared for the future".
