Acronis protects customer’s server in REvil attack on Kaseya

The recent supply-chain attack on Kaseya by the REvil ransomware group impacted dozens of managed service providers (MSPs) who rely on Kaseya VSA, as well as thousands of small businesses that are managed by those MSPs. While the initial ransom demand was dropped from $70 million to $50 million, the pain and frustration of those targeted rose steadily during the incident.

It’s worth noting that as news of the attack spread and frustration among MSPs grew, what didn’t grab headlines was the fact Acronis’ cyber protection technology was able to stop the ransomware attack in its tracks.
