Forrester Examines the ROI Enterprises Gain From Acronis Cyber Protection

Acronis recently commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) that an enterprise can realize by deploying an Acronis Cyber Protection solution. To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with this investment, Forrester interviewed the CIO of a manufacturer of high-performance equipment that has been using Acronis’ Cyber Protection solutions for approximately two years. This customer had also been hit by two ransomware attacks and was trying to upgrade its defensive strategy for the future.

The results were compelling and are summarized in this infographic.

"Building a cohesive security program requires integrated technologies,” he writes, “but organizations can't ignore the fact that people are an essential ingredient for an effective program."
