Acronis Global Cyber Summit 2020 is going virtual so more MSPs and IT pros can attend

If there’s one thing that channel, cybersecurity, and IT professionals understand, it’s that you need to be flexible to keep a business running smoothly and constantly protected. That’s because no matter how good your initial plan might be, something unexpected can always happen that you will need to adapt to, such as a global pandemic.

Training and certification #AcronisCyberSummit

Following the partner awards last night, the main program of the Acronis Global Cyber Summit 2019 is officially over. No more celebrity keynotes. No more insightful panels. No more wining and dining at the luxurious Fontainebleau Miami Beach Resort.

Yet the opportunity to gain valuable knowledge and insight continues on Day 3, as IT pros, salespeople and engineers roll up their sleeves and get formal training on the strategies and solutions that will make the cyber protection revolution a success. Attendees who can stay another day have the opportunity to join a series of training and certification sessions that will help them put the knowledge that they gained during the Summit into practice.

The Acronis Global Cyber Summit has offered a wide variety of new opportunities and experiences for the cyber protection community – innovative product announcements, inspiring speeches, and insightful panels of experts. But amidst all these crucial takeaways came an inspiring moment when the cyber protection community could give back.

Last night, the Acronis Cyber Foundation held an exclusive Charity Reception and, through the generous donations of the hundreds who attended and offered support online, raised more than $30,000. All of these funds will be used to finance the construction of a new school in Nicaragua – creating an opportunity that will change the lives of children who desperately need it.

#AcronisCyberSummit day one recap

Between our Women in Tech Breakfast, four eye-opening keynote addresses, and the formal announcement of kicking-off three new cyber protection technologies, the first day of the Acronis Global Cyber Summit was full of valuable insights that were relevant for every attendee.

In the afternoon, however, attendees were invited to choose an educational session track that best fit their specific careers, concerns, and organizations. Here’s a quick look at some of what was covered in yesterday’s panels for service providers, resellers, developers and ISVs, and enterprise IT professionals.

SB delivers keynote at Acronis Global Cyber Summit

Acronis Founder and Executive Officer Serguei “SB” Beloussov delivered his keynote address to the Acronis Global Cyber Summit and after getting the crowd energized with his vision of cyber protection, showing how it is revolutionizing the IT industry, Acronis announced three new cyber protection solutions:

  1. Acronis Cyber Protect, which integrates seven key protection needs into one easy-to-use solution
  2. Acronis Cyber Infrastructure, which delivers a cost-efficient, easy-to-use and reliable hyper-converged infrastructure for hosting cyber protection
  3. Acronis Cyber Platform, which gives third-parties the ability to customize, extend and integrate Acronis Cyber Protection – as well as access Acronis’ larger ecosystem

“Why are we doing all that? It’s very simple: to provide comprehensive cyber protection,” SB explained, adding the additional benefit was “to provide great margin and market opportunities for partners.”
