Acronis Cyber Infrastructure 4.5: Introducing new updates

Data has become the world’s most valuable resource, and is at the core of everyday operations for nearly every business. Organizations and service providers are always looking for ways to improve the efficiency and reliability of their data centers — and to meet the shifting needs of their userbase with minimal expense.

Today, we’re announcing a significant update to Acronis Cyber Infrastructure that will introduce new capabilities and performance enhancements, improving manageability while strengthening the security and availability of business-critical data.

New capabilities for delivering the enhanced 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 in an even more easy, efficient and secure way.

As a result of these updates, our MSP partners can now deliver enhanced cyber protection.

Shifting towards services: Directions and challenges in the IT channel

Throughout the IT channel, solution providers are, in large part, defined by the services that they offer. For companies like Acronis to continue providing our partners with the solutions and support they need, we need to be listening to them. What tools are SPs adopting? What are the challenges they face? What’s working — and what’s not?

To take the current pulse of the industry, Acronis partnered with Channelnomics, Pax8, Dropsuite, IBM, Microsoft, and Novacoast on a collaborative study. Here, we explore some highlights from the SMB Channel Services Transformation report.

Combatting new cyberthreats with a new playbook

No matter how skilled and capable your IT manager or team is at running checks on network and data, they are only as good as the technology stack you rely on. Between juggling server issues, software updates, printers not working, and constantly reminding your employees to reset passwords, they don’t have time to focus entirely on protecting your data, systems, and applications.

The technology to keep your businesses running and users productive needs to be reliable and secure.
