Peer Insights Customers' Choice for Backup

When Gartner announced the 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice awards for Data Center Backup and Recovery products last week, the foresight and vision displayed by Acronis generated a surprise appearance. That’s because unlike the other six vendors recognized as a Customers’ Choice, Acronis was not covered in Gartner’s previous Magic Quadrants for Backup and Recovery.

Instead, Acronis earned the recognition as Peer Insights Customers’ Choice because actual product users submitted enough high-quality testimonials and scores to get the company added to the awards list.

The Atlanta SamSam attack proves prevention is best

According to Atlanta’s chief of Information Management, more than a third of the city’s 424 essential applications were laid low by the SamSam ransomware attack in April, with 30 percent of those supporting vital municipal functions like the court system and police department. According to reports, the City Attorney's office lost all but six of its 77 computers and 10 years' worth of documents, while the police department lost all of its stored dash cam recordings: serious losses of critical data.

The attack illustrates the old adage that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure -- especially since there is an anti-ransomware solution that would have stopped the attack and saved the city $10 million.
