Cyberthreat update from Acronis CPOCs: Week of April 12, 2021

Here at Acronis, we’re always monitoring for dangers to your data, deploying updates to handle newly-discovered vulnerabilities, and issuing alerts and recommendations to help you stay protected. Our global network of Acronis Cyber Protection Operations Centers (CPOCs) continue to work around the clock to proactively detect and defend against the latest cyberthreats.

Part of this work includes video updates to inform you of modern hazards in the digital landscape — such as new cyberthreat campaigns and ransomware strikes against major organizations. Here’s a look at some of the most recent breaking news and analyses:

New integration: MSPs can now manage Acronis via Kaseya VSA

We’ve worked hard to ensure Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud – which unifies backup, cybersecurity, and protection management capabilities in one solution designed for MSPs – integrates with the popular RMM and PSA systems that service providers rely on.

Recently, we added to our list of integrations so that Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud can now be monitored and run via the Kaseya VSA platform.

Canalys adds Acronis to Endpoint Security Performance Index

With the launch of Acronis Cyber Protect in 2020, we began to compete in other sectors above and beyond backup and recovery. With integrated anti-malware, vulnerability assessments, and URL filtering, Acronis started looking more like an endpoint protection solution – and it seems the analyst community took notice.

Most notably, the market research firm Canalys recently began including Acronis in their Endpoint Security Vendor Performance Index, and our unified solutions performed very well.

Building MSP cybersecurity services isn’t hard with the right advice

Small-to-medium businesses (SMBs) struggled through a fretful year of sudden pandemic-driven changes: employees forced to work from home, sensitive data abruptly moved to cloud-based SaaS applications, and a baffling array of new cyberthreats – including 350,000 new malware threats being identified every day and a 400% increase in cybercrime last year being reported by the FBI.

For 2021, that last challenge is particularly daunting: few SMBs are capable of keeping pace with a daily barrage of ransomware attacks, tech supply-chain incursions like the SolarWinds breach, and severe vulnerabilities like Microsoft’s recent Exchange Server fiasco – especially in light of their paltry tech budgets and headcount.

SMBs are desperate to outsource these problems, and that presents a huge opportunity for MSPs willing to step up and help.

Develop better cyber protection in 2021

While leaving legacy IT solutions and approached behind can be daunting it’s essential to modern cyber protection.

Traditional backup and cybersecurity solutions can’t fully protect modern data and devices. Data loss is on the rise for individual IT users and IT professionals because outdated solutions are being applied to today’s cyberthreats.

It’s time to rethink how you approach cyber protection. Check out how to get started with this infographic.

 

MSPs guiding businesses toward better cyber protection

Our Cyber Protection Week Global Report shows that organizations are still grappling with the changes sparked by COVID and the modern cyberthreat landscape. They’re aware of the challenges facing them but their strategies to overcome them simply aren’t working.

For IT service providers offering modern cyber protection solutions, these findings represent a significant opportunity to deliver more reliable, comprehensive, and effective protection and unlock expanded revenue streams along the way.

New no-charge licensing reimagines cyber protection for MSPs

Since launching Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud nearly a year ago, we’ve also listened to our partners’ feedback on the kinds of changes that would help them succeed even more.

We heard you. You asked for the flexibility to add cyber protection to every device at an affordable price while having the flexibility to add advanced services to the most critical workloads.

Based on that input, we’re introducing an exciting new licensing model that’s taking things to a whole new level for our partners ... so as of today, we’re incorporating all of our service provider solutions into one, unified solution – Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud.
