The Acronis Global Cyber Summit 2020 Training Day is in the books! We rolled out our virtual Summit this year with a day dedicated to training partners on how to deliver cyber protection solutions to their clients, develop their next innovation with the Acronis Cyber Platform, and achieve more by following the example of some of the world’s top athletes.

Simply put, the year’s biggest cyber protection event is off to an amazing start.

If you weren’t able to make it to the Acronis Global Cyber Summit 2020 Training Day, or you missed out on an event or two, here are the top highlights and takeaways.

Developers and ISVs at the Acronis Global Cyber Summit

The modern threat landscape demands cyber protection — the intersection of data protection and cybersecurity. And with so many of us working and learning from home, the need is higher than ever for effective cyber protection that integrates with the tools and applications we rely on.

So how does one get started with developing new cyber protection solutions? And what sorts of challenges can be expected along the way?

Today, we'll take a deep dive into the developer and ISV track at Acronis Global Cyber Summit 2020, which takes place October 19-21, to learn the answers to these questions and more.

Cyber protection thought leaders eager for Acronis Global Cyber Summit 2020

We’re less than 50 days away from the Acronis Global Cyber Summit 2020, which is happening from October 19 to 21, and the lineup of tech leaders, cybersecurity experts, and IT channel veterans who are set to share their expertise is getting pretty long – and impressive.

Acronis Launches 2020 Global Acronis #CyberFit Platform Program

Session tracks announced for Acronis Global Cyber Summit

When signing up for a conference, the ultimate goal is to walk away with new insights and actionable information that will help you in your current role, while also developing new and lasting skills. Yet too often, conferences that can sound promising often turn into a sales pitch for the sponsor’s latest product. You want to learn about the new solutions available, but the focus should be on learning.

That’s why, following last year’s Acronis Global Cyber Summit, the feedback we received was so rewarding – it all revolved around the strength of the educational content: “It was a great event and not a giant sales pitch!”

Now, we’re proud to say that the breakout sessions at the Acronis Global Cyber Summit 2020 that will help you get your organization #CyberFit have been set.

Acronis Global Cyber Summit 2020 announced

Last year, Acronis hosted the world’s largest gathering of cyber protection professionals for a two-and-a-half-day exploration into this new IT discipline. We’re excited to repeat that successful and informational show this coming October because, as of today, registration for the Acronis Global Cyber Summit 2020 is now open.

Once again we’ll take over the Fontainebleau Miami Beach in Miami, FL with an anticipated 2,000 attendees exploring the latest trends and opportunities in modern cyber protection – the transformational IT discipline that ensures organizations are #CyberFit. As the premier event focused on cyber protection, we’ll bring together thought leaders, CIOs, service providers, resellers, distributors, developers, and enterprise businesses from around the world.

The Summit will run October 19-21, kicking off on Monday, October 19 with a full day of live training and certification sessions, followed by the conference’s Welcome Reception that evening. The next two days will offer high-profile keynotes and panel discussions, customer and partner advisory councils, in-depth technical breakouts, and technology showcases – all focused on strengthening the cyber protection position of organizations, service providers, and the customers they support.

When Tech Conferences Are Worth The Time and Expense

If you work in an IT operations, cybersecurity or tech leadership role, you probably receive several tempting invitations to industry events and conferences every month. They are usually held in comfortable venues with balmy weather and lots of nearby attractions to entertain family members you might bring along.

Your hosts will probably serve up some good food, drink, and entertainment ... but in a working world where there already aren’t enough hours in a week, how can you justify time away at an event in Vegas or Orlando or some other sunny clime?

Before you ask your boss to pony up precious T&E budget to fund your trip, you should build a business case to justify your attendance – one that lays out the company’s return on the investment of your time.

Just Opened: Early Access to the Acronis Cyber Platform

Acronis Cyber Platform

Today we announced that we’re opening the Acronis Cyber Platform to give developers, ISVs, OEMs, service providers, and others access to our core platform. This early access is designed to encourage expanded functionality and application integrations by developers while giving them access to Acronis’ large ecosystem.

The Acronis Cyber Platform, which is the foundation of the company’s existing services, features a series of APIs supported by software development kits (SDK) and sample code. With today’s early access, developers can have the kind of access was previously available only to Acronis and select integration partners such as ConnectWise, Microsoft and Google.

Acronis Cyber Platform: Handing the Keys to Developers

Acronis Cyber Protection Platform

In today’s digital world, data is the most valuable asset that your organization has. The data economy and its key driver, the democratization of data, is changing the competitive landscape everywhere. New industries are being built while traditional industries and business models are being destroyed. In addition, the amount of data and the the number of data sources is exploding because there are more apps, more “things”, more analysis of data, and more places to store data.

As a result, most organizations are falling way behind in their ability to manage and protect data.

When transforming to be a “data-driven” digital transformation success story in your market space, it’s critical to remember –  your team, your partners, your investors and your customers depend on your organization to effectively protect data from loss, theft and manipulation.
