Training and certification #AcronisCyberSummit

Following the partner awards last night, the main program of the Acronis Global Cyber Summit 2019 is officially over. No more celebrity keynotes. No more insightful panels. No more wining and dining at the luxurious Fontainebleau Miami Beach Resort.

Yet the opportunity to gain valuable knowledge and insight continues on Day 3, as IT pros, salespeople and engineers roll up their sleeves and get formal training on the strategies and solutions that will make the cyber protection revolution a success. Attendees who can stay another day have the opportunity to join a series of training and certification sessions that will help them put the knowledge that they gained during the Summit into practice.

Today was another big day of presentations, information sharing and learning for IT infrastructure managers, CIOs, managed-IT service providers, resellers, ISVs, and developers alike.

The Acronis Global Cyber Summit has offered a wide variety of new opportunities and experiences for the cyber protection community – innovative product announcements, inspiring speeches, and insightful panels of experts. But amidst all these crucial takeaways came an inspiring moment when the cyber protection community could give back.

Last night, the Acronis Cyber Foundation held an exclusive Charity Reception and, through the generous donations of the hundreds who attended and offered support online, raised more than $30,000. All of these funds will be used to finance the construction of a new school in Nicaragua – creating an opportunity that will change the lives of children who desperately need it.

#AcronisCyberSummit day one recap

Between our Women in Tech Breakfast, four eye-opening keynote addresses, and the formal announcement of kicking-off three new cyber protection technologies, the first day of the Acronis Global Cyber Summit was full of valuable insights that were relevant for every attendee.

In the afternoon, however, attendees were invited to choose an educational session track that best fit their specific careers, concerns, and organizations. Here’s a quick look at some of what was covered in yesterday’s panels for service providers, resellers, developers and ISVs, and enterprise IT professionals.

Acronis Founder and Executive Officer Serguei “SB” Beloussov delivered his keynote address to the Acronis Global Cyber Summit and after getting the crowd energized with his vision of cyber protection, showing how it is revolutionizing the IT industry, Acronis announced three new cyber protection solutions:

  1. Acronis Cyber Protect, which integrates seven key protection needs into one easy-to-use solution
  2. Acronis Cyber Infrastructure, which delivers a cost-efficient, easy-to-use and reliable hyper-converged infrastructure for hosting cyber protection

Acronis Earns on the Gartner 2019 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Datacenter Backup and Recovery Solutions

Acronis was honored to be featured in this year’s Gartner 2019 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Datacenter Backup and Recovery Solutions.

Admittedly, we were disappointed to see our position on the quadrant – especially given our unique vision and successful practical execution of fusing cybersecurity with backup in order to establish a new standard of comprehensive protection: Cyber Protection.

Then again, visionaries and innovators rarely fit existing metrics – instead we influence the standards that drive the future of their industries.

Let’s take a moment to examine Acronis’ position in the Enterprise Backup and Recovery sector.

Acronis True Image proven the fastest cloud backup

When considering their options for cloud backup solutions, users understandably want to know how each will actually perform in real life. The challenge is knowing which solution will create reliable backups, perform seamlessly, and back up to the cloud quickly. In short, they want a solution that will cause the least amount of frustration while providing the best data protection.

MRG Effitas – a well-known independent testing laboratory and a member of the Anti-Malware Testing Standards Organization (AMTSO) – recently conducted a performance test of popular cloud backup solutions.

Their independent testing revealed Acronis True Image 2020 is clearly the fastest personal backup – up to 13-times faster than the competition.
