How CloudTech S.A.S. boosted RPO by 50% and protected customers with Acronis Cyber Backup Cloud

As a managed service provider, you know how important choosing the right vendor can be. Businesses live and die by the quality of their IT services, and when your clients aren't getting what they require, it’s a risk to their livelihood and to your own. That’s the situation that CloudTech S.A.S. found themselves in when Arcserve’s data backup solution was no longer meeting their needs.

Service providers looking for the best Arcserve alternative should consider tested solutions that have already delivered incredible results for others in the IT channel. A recent case study details how Acronis Cyber Backup Cloud helped CloudTech take their service offerings to the next level.

SunCrypt adopts attacking techniques from NetWalker and Maze ransomware

The SunCrypt ransomware family was first spotted in October 2019, but it was not very active at that time. The group behind it was independent in the beginning, but they recently joined the so-called Maze cartel – combining forces to rob individuals and companies around the world. This cartel included Maze and LockBit when it first started, but later welcomed Ragnar Locker and now SunCrypt.

The Acronis Security Team provides an in-depth analysis of the SunCrypt threat.

Top cyberthreat against macOS now installs adware with a Python script

The first examples of the Shlayer malware family were discovered in February 2018. Since then, it has become the most popular macOS first-stage trojan-downloader.

Shlayer remotely installs other malicious or potentially unwanted applications such as Cimpli, Bnodlero, Geonei, and Pirrit adware for macOS X desktops and laptops, mostly targeting US-based users. Once installed, the adware collects the victim’s personal data and tracks browsing activities that can be used to target additional ads. This newest version of the trojan leverages a Python script for stealthier execution of the malicious payload and employs data encryption for communications with its external command and control (C&C) server.
