Like the rest of the world, we are horrified and deeply concerned about the Russian conflict in Ukraine. We stand in support of the people in Ukraine and call for peace to return to the area. As a result of the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, Acronis is suspending all operations in Russia.
Acronis is a global company, founded by a Singaporean citizen in Singapore in 2003 and incorporated in Switzerland in 2008. We have over 2,000 employees in 34 countries and 19 offices around the world. Our technology is built, tested, stored, distributed and licensed in our headquarters in Schaffhausen, Switzerland. We have not sold solutions in Russia since 2017. Our company history can be found here.
As a company, we believe it’s important to protect and help those in need. The Acronis Cyber Foundation has released $500,000 in humanitarian assistance to those in need. We are also opening employment opportunities in offices around the world for Ukrainian refugees who had to flee from this conflict and have been left without a job. The Acronis Cyber Foundation team is working with various agencies on additional measures, such as monetary assistance and providing shelter, food and clothes.
Cyber Protection for our customers and partners
To our customers and partners, rest assured that the Acronis software you rely on to protect and manage your business will continue to be available without disruption as it always has. Below are three important steps, among many, we take to ensure your software and data is secure:
- Acronis IP and Acronis software are built, tested and stored at our headquarters in Switzerland.
- Our security development life cycle was designed to prevent insider and supply chain attacks against our code.
- None of our cyber protection services and global data centers are located in Russia. Equally important, our data centers have achieved multiple certifications including ISO, SOC, HIPAA, CJIS and NIST 800-171 compliant, using FIPS 140-2 encryption. We either meet or exceed all GDPR requirements globally.
Acronis will continue to support our employees, customers and partners and join with all of those around the world who are calling for peace.
