Mindspout is a two-year-old managed service provider and cybersecurity company that works with small and medium businesses of all sizes with a focus on a few key verticals, including real estate and healthcare. According to co-founder and CTO, Scott Raba, “We wanted to upgrade the type of backup offered to clients with an increased level of security and protection. Neither Carbonite nor SolarWinds scanned for malware or ransomware.” 

When Raba evaluated the cyber protection features found in Acronis Active Protection, he knew Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud was an ideal solution. The same agent used to handle backup and recovery uses artificial intelligence to monitor a machine’s hard drive in real-time. It scans I/O activity to identify activities and patterns that are common in ransomware and malware attacks, such as the encryption of files.
