Decisions, Decisions: How MSPs Can Use Third-Party Reports When Considering Ransomware Solutions

A valuable aid in determining whether legacy data protection and cybersecurity solutions are effective against modern cyberthreats is to leverage independent third-party research. These parties measure the actual performance and protection of competing solutions.

These studies can be vital, providing the kind of unvarnished, professional analysis that most MSPs, VARs and IT pros cannot do on their own – helping them determine whether or not the vendor they use (or are considering) will protect data against today’s threat landscape.

Acronis Cyber Cloud 8.0

To stay competitive and grow today, service providers need to ensure all customers stay #CyberFit. But with everything from insider threats to ransomware and cryptojacking on the rise, not to mention the impact recent data breaches have had – from financial and compliance-related penalties to reputational damage – service providers need the right support to ensure that task is easy and enables growth opportunities.

That’s why each new version of Acronis Cyber Cloud improves two things: partner cyber protection capabilities – enhancing some or all of the Five Vectors of Cyber Protection; and partner delivery of cyber protection services to end customers – making managing cyber protection day-to-day easier, more efficient and even more secure.

Acronis Cyber Cloud 8.0 is no exception. Here’s a preview of some key enhancements coming via the solution’s core service offerings.

Celebrating Advanced Tech and the Differentiation Paradox at CloudFest 2019

There’s no doubt businesses increasingly view the cloud as an agile, efficient way to manage their IT needs: 58 percent are moving toward a hybrid IT environment and another 18 percent are looking to move completely to the cloud (per 451 Research). This means that managed service providers (MSPs) need the right tools to stay in the game – and ahead of the competition – to facilitate this process for customers and capture some of the projected $186.4 billion cloud computing market.

Next week at CloudFest 2019, Acronis will join 7,000 global cloud, hosting, and service provider industry pros to share IT solutions that enable MSPs to solve pressing, complex customer problems. Here’s a preview of what will be top-of-mind at Acronis’ CloudFest booth #F04.

Protect what matters in your digital life

World Backup Day is March 31. Make sure you’re protecting what matters this year to keep your most important information safe and secure no matter what accidents and threats arise in the year ahead.

With the introduction of Acronis Software Defined Infrastructure 2.5 (formerly Acronis Storage) and the Acronis SDI Appliance, Acronis builds on its 15-year history as a trusted cyber protection partner (today storing over 200PB of user’s data in Acronis-operated data centers) to meet the needs of customers with varying and evolving needs. That is, given increased computing and data storage on edge devices today, both a universal and scalable software-defined infrastructure (SDI) solution is necessary to meets the rising demand for secure edge solutions.

Now MSPs and enterprises have access to Acronis’ solution, which not only enhances HCI with security but also delivers the number one choice for edge and edge-like workloads. 

We recently asked our cloud partners what was on their 2019 wish list for support – what they needed most to realize new success. The overwhelming reply: Help in knowing how to better market their services. 

As a result, we created a comprehensive Acronis MSP Marketing Guide to help service providers boost their business with greater ease. Here’s a quick preview of what it covers.

9 Considerations When Creating Your Backup Strategy

Today’s businesses are in a constant state of alert when protecting their data. Whether it’s an employee’s careless accident, wildfires in California or cybercriminals at their laptops, the threat of data loss can cause sleepless nights for IT professionals.

To compound this threat, the volume of data that must be protected is growing exponentially. Every day, an estimated 2.5 quintillion bytes of data is generated from an increasingly vast and diverse array of sources, from digital photos and videos to IoT sensors and business-critical systems.

According to the Enterprise Strategy Group, backup and recovery capabilities consistently rank among the top IT priorities for organizations of all sizes. The result is increased demand for business continuity (BC) solutions that help businesses keep operations running in the face of disaster.
