Acronis named Visionary in Gartner MQ 2020

There is nothing quite like third-party validation from one of the world’s most prestigious market research firms.

The pace of change in the world is accelerating and, as the world becomes more digital, IT professionals know that cyberthreats are evolving even faster.

Acronis Cyber Dragon and the basics of cyber protection

The modern world is more dependent upon data than at any time in history. That means safeguarding data – and the applications and systems that rely on data – is vital for individuals and organizations alike.

Unfortunately, traditional backup and cybersecurity solutions are no longer enough because they cannot keep up with today’s threats. The world needs modern solutions that can protect data, applications, and systems.

Acronis has been advocating a new approach called cyber protection, which combines the best of data protection with innovative approaches to cybersecurity, while incorporating technologies that ensure the privacy and authenticity of data.

Let’s explore the basics of cyber protection.

Acronis Cyber Cloud 8.0

To stay competitive and grow today, service providers need to ensure all customers stay #CyberFit. But with everything from insider threats to ransomware and cryptojacking on the rise, not to mention the impact recent data breaches have had – from financial and compliance-related penalties to reputational damage – service providers need the right support to ensure that task is easy and enables growth opportunities.

That’s why each new version of Acronis Cyber Cloud improves two things: partner cyber protection capabilities – enhancing some or all of the Five Vectors of Cyber Protection; and partner delivery of cyber protection services to end customers – making managing cyber protection day-to-day easier, more efficient and even more secure.

Acronis Cyber Cloud 8.0 is no exception. Here’s a preview of some key enhancements coming via the solution’s core service offerings.

Acronis was honored to be featured in this year’s Gartner 2019 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Datacenter Backup and Recovery Solutions.

Admittedly, we were disappointed to see our position on the quadrant – especially given our unique vision and successful practical execution of fusing cybersecurity with backup in order to establish a new standard of comprehensive protection: Cyber Protection.

Then again, visionaries and innovators rarely fit existing metrics – instead we influence the standards that drive the future of their industries.

Let’s take a moment to examine Acronis’ position in the Enterprise Backup and Recovery sector.

Acronis Gets 47 Million Investment from Goldman Sachs
