Takeaways from the inaugural NSITSP meeting

Today was a pivotal day in the history of the service provider channel. The inaugural meeting of the National Society of IT Service Providers (NSITSP) was held to bring the MSP community together and begin the regulation discussion that will help shape the channel for years to come. As Karl Palachuk, a long-time MSP author, advocate, consultant, and founder of NSITSP, stated at the beginning of the call to the 115+ MSPs in attendance, “Legislation is happening already and this issue involves politicians, insurance companies, MSPs, and their clients. Right now, MSPs do not have a seat at the table."

#MSInspire living up to its name for partners

With one day down and the second underway, there’s been a lot of excitement at the Microsoft Inspire 2021 event. As promised, it’s a great opportunity to get a preview of the upcoming advances in Microsoft’s technology and its ecosystem of 400,000 partners, as well as to connect with our partners in attendance who are looking to protect their clients’ Microsoft environments.

One of the many heartening things to hear from Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella was the shared value that “[W]e’re only successful if you are successful. That means creating new opportunities for you across every sector and every country.”

Secure clients and yourself with Acronis MSP Protection

Businesses rely on data and IT more than ever before, especially after the widespread adoption of remote-first work models during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. This reliance on data has dramatically increased the need for effective and comprehensive cyber protection — and nowhere is this threat more strongly felt than among managed service providers (MSPs) who keep their clients’ organizations running.

That’s why, earlier this week, we introduced Acronis MSP Protection, our newest service designed to help MSPs meet and exceed the challenges of the modern digital landscape.

Acronis again named a “Leader” in G2 Summer 2021 Grid® Reports

The G2 Summer 2021 Grid® Reports are out, and Acronis is proud to announce that our cyber protection solutions have once again been rated among the top performers. Based on a combination of market presence data and detailed reviews from actual customers, these reports show that Acronis’ solutions continue to meet and exceed users’ needs.

Acronis protects customer’s server in REvil attack on Kaseya

The recent supply-chain attack on Kaseya by the REvil ransomware group impacted dozens of managed service providers (MSPs) who rely on Kaseya VSA, as well as thousands of small businesses that are managed by those MSPs. While the initial ransom demand was dropped from $70 million to $50 million, the pain and frustration of those targeted rose steadily during the incident.

It’s worth noting that as news of the attack spread and frustration among MSPs grew, what didn’t grab headlines was the fact Acronis’ cyber protection technology was able to stop the ransomware attack in its tracks.
