New capabilities for delivering the enhanced cyber protection MSP clients need
The cyberthreat landscape continues to evolve on a daily basis – luckily, your cyber protection solution from Acronis continues to evolve as well. In February’s release of Acronis Cyber Cloud, we introduced numerous data protection and security enhancements to help you deliver cyber protection the easy, efficient and secure way.
As a result of these updates, our MSP partners can now deliver enhanced cyber protection with:
- Data loss prevention (DLP) via device and port control: Strengthen data protection and prevent leaks of sensitive information via local physical and virtual workloads. Enforce context-aware controls over local data access and transfer operations on workloads, including clipboard operations.
- Anti-malware for Linux: Increase protection for your clients’ Linux-based environments. Anti-malware protection for Linux provides real-time protection and scheduled scans so that you can notify clients, and block and quarantine suspicious activity in real-time.
- IPsec multisite VPN support: Strengthen security with support of IPSec multisite VPN support. Available in Acronis Cyber Disaster Recovery Cloud, IPsec multisite VPN support integrates secure protocols and algorithms, so you can easily support clients with multiple sites that are hosting critical workloads with higher requirements for security, compliance, and bandwidth.
- Support checks for updates via peer-to-peer: Maintain your clients’ system updates with ease. With peer-to-peer updates in Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud, as long as one agent is connected to the cloud, it will receive and share updates with other agents on the network. If this agent is down or not connected, the rest of the agents will go to Acronis Cloud and will receive updates there – ensuring they are all up to date.
- Bootable media builder: Recover clients’ data even faster with the bootable media builder, now available in Acronis Cyber Cloud. This enables you to easily create a customized Linux-based or Windows-based media that can be moved to USBs, ISO, or WIM without downloading any additional software – saving you time and resources.
- Custom DNS configuration: Provide flexibility by setting up your custom DNS configurations for the disaster recovery site in the Acronis Cloud. This enables you to easily adjust DNS settings for your cloud servers, that are dependent on your own DNS services.
- Enhanced security mode: Provide even better security for your clients with enhanced security mode. This mode restricts data access for everyone but the data owner. It safeguards all backups by ensuring they are encrypted and the management console doesn’t store or archive any passwords.
- Acronis Cyber Files Cloud for Android: Protect even more Android files with additional functionalities within Acronis Cyber Files, including localization support in Spanish. With this update, users can now take photos within the app and provide an even better user experience with PDF files: improved speed, enhanced search performance, and more.
