There is a great opportunity for services providers to build a business by meeting the demands of the growing cyber protection market ... [Acronis] provides a set of products that providers can use to market their own comprehensive backup, disaster recovery, and ransomware protection solutions. –

Being “safe” means avoiding things that can cause injury, pain and loss – which are critical in the digital world. That’s because unlike physical items, digital assets are much more vulnerable and can be easily destroyed – either accidentally or on purpose.
Creating a reliable backup of your data, apps and systems – and storing it in a way that ensures that information is available when you need to recover something – is the only way to keep your data safe.
By definition, “accessibility” is all about something being easy to reach and use. In today’s mobile world, we carry more computing power in our pocket than was used to send a man to the moon. We need immediate access to data from wherever we are.
Cyber protection balances that access against the need to keep data safe, private, authentic and secure. Locking a hard drive inside a vault guarantees the data’s safety, but makes it inaccessible – so it’s not useful.
From identity theft to corporate espionage, keeping your data private is a basic need for individuals and companies alike. Yet the recent spike in data breaches around the world shows that few companies are taking appropriate steps to combat modern incursions.
Limiting who can view and use your data should be under your complete control – whether that’s managing permissions for users or employing enterprise-grade encryption to keep prying eyes from your files.
Know that something is “authentic” means we can prove it is true or original. For IT pros, knowing a file is authentic is vital since recovering a file, server, or entire infrastructure from a backup that’s been altered can put a company at risk.
Given the threat posed by unauthorized alterations, users need a way to validate a backup’s authenticity before relying on it. Blockchain notarization offers indisputable proof that the file hasn’t been tampered with.
At its most basic level, security means freedom from danger. Unfortunately, the digital world is filled with constantly evolving attacks – from ransomware that locks up your data to cryptomining malware that hijacks your system resources while injecting other threats.
Today, securing your data requires a protection strategy that includes an integrated defense that can stop all online threats, including new strains that exploit previously unknown vulnerabilities.
