EDR is now within reach of everyone
We have some exciting news. We are thrilled to announce that Acronis EDR is now accessible to all MSPs using the core Acronis Advanced Security, without additional cost. Acronis Advanced Security is already recognized as the top solution for MSPs, and with EDR included at no extra cost, it now offers the best cybersecurity value in the market for MSPs and their clients.
EDR is mission critical … but there Is a problem
Protecting business and government endpoints is more important than ever for both security and compliance. Where previously, cybercriminals would more often attack networks directly, they found that network endpoints — the servers, laptops and workstations on the network — were softer targets. Not only were there more of them, but each was used or administrated by different people using different applications. Additionally, the technological world was moving decidedly to the use of services and cloud. More people, applications, and services mean more potential attack vectors. And the proliferation and variety of attacks outstripped the simple antivirus (AV) tools of the day.
Famously, in 2013, Anton Chuvakin — then at Gartner and now a senior security specialist at Google — coined the term “Endpoint Threat Detection and Response (ETDR).” The industry responded and a new approach to cyberdefense was conceived. As the types of coverage and issues expanded, the acronym was shortened to EDR and solutions were developed in an attempt to fill that need.
But the problem is that most EDR tools are overly complex and difficult to use and deploy, requiring top engineering talent with sophisticated training. Additionally, they were developed independently and are therefore not connected to backup, restore and disaster recovery solutions or processes. This disconnect requires IT service providers (MSPs) and businesses to cobble together a series of solutions that must be managed and maintained separately.
Acronis solved the problem with EDR
At Acronis, we believe protecting endpoints should not be complicated or expensive. That's why we developed a better solution. Last year, we introduced an upgrade to our Advanced Security offering — Advanced Security + EDR. This solution is specifically designed for service providers, and the response from our MSP partner community has been overwhelmingly positive. Importantly, since Acronis Advance Security + EDR is activated and operates from the same agent as our famous backup and disaster recovery solutions, the entire detection through recovery solution chain operates seamlessly from a single console.
The results speak for themselves. Endpoint issues are detected and resolved in the console, often before clients notice an issue.
“Since we deployed Acronis EDR, our ticket volume has dropped 50%.”
— JC Chapman, Systems Engineer, Liberty Technology
Having an intuitive, single-point solution with AI-based behavioral detection, EDR and recovery, all on a single agent and in a single UI, is helping them grow.
“With Acronis EDR, we have been able to increase clients by more than 60% and double the number of devices protected without adding additional staff.”
— Vladimir Georgieski, CEO, JVSNet
