3 Steps to Reduce Work Stress and Grow in 2018

New Year Resolutions


If your New Year’s Resolutions list includes “reduce stress,” “make smart investments” and “over-deliver,” you’re not alone. Dreaming big at the beginning of the year is easy to do. Certainly those who look to the previous year for key lessons to learn from are probably at an advantage.

If the headlines generated in 2017 taught us anything, it’s that data protection is something we really can’t live, stress-free, without. From natural disasters including crippling wild fires, floods and a historic hurricane season, to malicious ransomware attacks such as WannaCry and NotPetya and breaches at Uber and Equifax, data protection is critical for businesses and consumers alike.

It’s hard to know what exact dangers might compromise your business’ ability to keep running, but clearly the threats are numerous – and growing. How do you reach your goals?

Step One:  Lean on your friends

They say there is strength in numbers. When it comes to keeping your New Year’s Resolutions, the more people you have in your corner, the better. And the more dedicated engineers and tech professionals you’ve got on your side, the more likely you’ll have a foolproof approach for 2018. Can you imagine what happens when all those supporters are loyal, data protection engineers, who’ve developed a foolproof plan to help you succeed?

Acronis Backup 12.5 allows you to stay one step ahead of cybercriminals and Mother Nature alike because our team of engineers understands the evolving technology environment. They are dedicated to solving the complex challenges businesses face today and in the future.

Step Two: Be Proactive

Despite ever-evolving threats, data-protection concerns don’t have to add stress because you can manage the cost of a data disaster by preventing one outright. How?

Not only has Acronis’ team delivered the fastest and most complete business backup and recovery system available, but by incorporating our exclusive Acronis Active Protection, they have also created the backup industry’s only solution that includes artificial intelligence-based anti-ransomware technology. Should a ransomware attack strike, Acronis Backup 12.5 is the only backup product available that detects and stops it before any damage is done.

Meanwhile, if Mother Nature starts acting up, you can back up your system and store it remotely until you can get back online locally. Acronis Backup 12.5 ensures you’re able to monitor all fronts – from servers, platforms, Macs and PCs to mobile devices. 

Step Three: Implement your plan

Just like we need people we can rely on, often enough we need to spend a little to save a lot. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be a big outlay to put a proactive data-protection strategy in place. Consider this: if you are unprepared for a data loss event, you will spend plenty on trying to recover the data, while the downtime will cost you potential income. Talk about stress! Investing reasonably in a solution that lets you keep running means you can focus on growing your business.

With Acronis as your partner, you can:

  • React quickly using a modern, intuitive product that is always vigilant
  • Protect all your data, in any location, from manmade or natural disasters
