Arsenal FC seamlessly transitions to working from home during lockdown with help from Acronis

Long before the COVID-19 pandemic, Arsenal had been working hard to implement new technology to allow its workforce to work from home on an ad-hoc basis. This included the implementation of collaborative and cloud-based technology. Then the crisis hit.

According to Christelle Heikkila, IT Director at Arsenal, “we had a seamless transition for our entire workforce to work from home as soon as lockdown started, from every department around the world as far as Singapore and Australia.”

Acronis has been with Arsenal every step of the way, taking proactive measures to keep Arsenal cyber safe, including the provision of backups for its cloud-based data to give it additional peace of mind. Arsenal was also an early adopter of Acronis Cyber Protect, which has cybersecurity features like a full-stack antivirus solution, vulnerability assessments, patch management, and URL filtering.

Here's a look at how their transition went.

Acronis - Arsenal Partnership


Acronis is thrilled to begin a new partnership with one of the most successful and recognized teams in the world of sport: Arsenal Football Club.

We’ve talked frequently about how, at the highest levels of competition, data can be the difference between winning and losing. That’s why teams in data-intensive sports like Formula 1 and Formula E racing rely on Acronis’ solutions.

But the advantage of data extends beyond motorsports, and Arsenal is at the cutting-edge of its use in soccer (aka football to everyone overseas).
