The future of Acronis and cyber protection
“[The rise of] cyber protection is one of the defining moments of our industry,” declared Phil Goodwin, Research Vice President of IDC. To help the Acronis partner community make the most of this moment and reaching new heights of growth and profitability, the Acronis #CyberFit Summit in Miami was full of panels and presentations featuring company leadership offering a vision for how Acronis and cyber protection will evolve in the year ahead.
CEO Patrick Pulvermueller addressed these points succinctly, cementing his commitment to the partner community with the promise “I will listen to all of you to learn what you need to be successful and deliver cyber protection with the power of you.” See his full comments by watching the Opening Keynote.
Acronis Business President Ezequiel Steiner, in the Miami Summit’s Acronis Leadership Roundtable, added that the integrated cyber protection approach Acronis offers is designed to help MSP partners stay successful through the business and technical challenges that he sees on the horizon. Echoing Pulvermueller’s promise to listen to partners, Acronis CTO Oleg Melnikov noted, “We want to help you guys be more effective and successful. To do that, we need to know what you’re doing, what you’re using, and so on to help you streamline and stay successful.”
Staying ahead of modern cyberthreats
97% of MSPs are concerned about suffering a cybersecurity breach in the next 12 months. This concern makes sense given the string of high-profile attacks that have filled the headlines in the past year and the increasing focus cybercriminals are putting on MSPs. Unfortunately, many service providers are still struggling to detect, prevent, and protect against these cyberthreats when they target their business or their clients’.
In multiple sessions at the Acronis #CyberFit Summit in Miami, cybersecurity analysts and experts provided an inside look at how these attacks work, how MSPs are impacted, and how Acronis Cyber Protection Solutions prevent them.

Integration, automation, and service optimization for better profits
For modern MSPs, opportunities are enormous. But maximizing the productivity and profitability of a modern MSP continues to be a puzzle for many. To help attendees achieve these goals in the year ahead, a number of Miami Summit sessions focused on simple steps that MSPs can take to see greater returns.
Acronis Chief Success Officer Gaidar Magdanurov put this succinctly, saying, “Everything should be automated. We have too many tools. Too many updates, licenses, reports. Without automations and integrations there’s no way to manage it all.”
