It’s Happenin’: #ITNConnect19

Acronis is at ITNConnect19

The floor is buzzing at the first full day of IT Nation Connect in Orlando and the Acronis team is having some great conversations as nearly 3,000 MSP professionals are roaming the show floor. As Gold Sponsors of this year’s event, it’s great to hear that so many attendees who are looking to expand their business are finding value in the program and their interactions with different vendors.

And since today is also Halloween, plenty of our peers are having fun with costumes and candy, making the show floor as festive as it is informative. 

While visiting Acronis at Booth #108, attendees expressed a lot of interest in many of the presentations that directly touched on concerns facing MSPs – particularly those regarding the rise in cyberthreats that Acronis has been addressing.

From keynotes to special presentations and on-going learning in each of the four dedicated education tracks, we’ve recapped highlights from the day below.

#AcronisCyberSummit day one recap

Between our Women in Tech Breakfast, four eye-opening keynote addresses, and the formal announcement of kicking-off three new cyber protection technologies, the first day of the Acronis Global Cyber Summit was full of valuable insights that were relevant for every attendee.

In the afternoon, however, attendees were invited to choose an educational session track that best fit their specific careers, concerns, and organizations. Here’s a quick look at some of what was covered in yesterday’s panels for service providers, resellers, developers and ISVs, and enterprise IT professionals.


SB delivers keynote at Acronis Global Cyber Summit

Acronis Founder and Executive Officer Serguei “SB” Beloussov delivered his keynote address to the Acronis Global Cyber Summit and after getting the crowd energized with his vision of cyber protection, showing how it is revolutionizing the IT industry, Acronis announced three new cyber protection solutions:

  1. Acronis Cyber Protect, which integrates seven key protection needs into one easy-to-use solution
  2. Acronis Cyber Infrastructure, which delivers a cost-efficient, easy-to-use and reliable hyper-converged infrastructure for hosting cyber protection
  3. Acronis Cyber Platform, which gives third-parties the ability to customize, extend and integrate Acronis Cyber Protection – as well as access Acronis’ larger ecosystem

“Why are we doing all that? It’s very simple: to provide comprehensive cyber protection,” SB explained, adding the additional benefit was “to provide great margin and market opportunities for partners.”
