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.

Malwarebytes targeted by cyberattack group that hit SolarWinds

You don’t have to work in cybersecurity to be aware of the recent discovery that a sophisticated state actor had potentially compromised tens of thousands of private companies and government institutions in the Americas, Europe, and the Middle East. The means was a software supply-chain: attackers breached the software distribution infrastructure of tech vendor SolarWinds, embedding malware in its popular Orion network management tool. When customers downloaded the latest Orion product update, the malware surreptitiously spread throughout their organizations, in many cases finding and forwarding sensitive data to external servers controlled by the attackers.

Now comes news that SolarWinds was not the only victim of this Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) attack. Cybersecurity vendor Malwarebytes disclosed earlier this week that it had also been victimized by the same threat actors.

How close is the reality of self-repairing endpoints?
