Service Providers

Acronis Cyber Protect is hereThe catchy title for this post celebrates a special moment. Not many companies have a chance to disrupt and transform an old, stable industry, but that’s exactly what Acronis did today.

That’s because we’ve released Acronis Cyber Protect – our game-changing cyber protection solution that integrates backup, disaster recovery, next-gen anti-malware, cybersecurity, and endpoint management tools into one integrated service.

As a result, we’re eliminating complexity, improving productivity, and enabling our managed service provider (MSP) partners to easily and efficiently scale while making security a focus of their service portfolio.

MSPs Can Leverage the Power of Platform Integration

The typical managed service provider (MSP) faces a daunting array of obstacles to building a successful, sustainable and profitable business. To meet these challenges, MSPs must squeeze efficiencies out of their existing tech infrastructure and staff – even as they add new services. Acronis believes the key to this effort is a broad-based leveraging of integration and automation.

We’ve outlined the opportunities to MSPs in deploying broader suites of cyber protection services as well and tactics to address the accompanying integration challenges in a new white paper titled The Five Levels of MSP Platform Integration. Here’s a brief preview.

Acronis #CyberFit Financing connects small businesses to COVID-19 funds

The COVID-19 pandemic is foremost a medical challenge, but the impact that social distancing and self-isolation are having on small businesses can’t be ignored. With countless small businesses relying on Acronis solutions and so many service providers themselves small businesses, we are acutely aware of how the steps needed to contain the virus are also severely affecting our customers, our partners, and the clients they serve.

In response, we are partnering with lenders from around the globe to launch Acronis #CyberFit Financing to provide a much-needed financial safety net.

Backup and storage through the ages

Last week was the inaugural World Cyber Protection Week, a new annual event created to raise awareness of the increasingly complex protection challenges that face today’s home users, IT professionals, and service providers. Throughout it, we shared resources meant to help you prepare for the digital world of tomorrow – today, we’re shifting focus.

Join us for a fun look back at how backup and storage have evolved through the ages – and how it will continue to evolve in the years to come.

Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud Beta Case Studies

Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud recently moved out of private beta and into public beta, making it available to any service provider or cloud distributor who is interested. This is the final step before the general availability (GA) of the product, slated for next month.

As with any new product launch, feedback from beta customers is tremendously important. For this launch, not only have we gotten feedback, but three beta participants agreed to do formal case studies about their overall impressions of Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud, its relevancy to their customers, and their experience.

Larry Walsh on COVID-19’s Impact on the Channel

The global COVID-19 pandemic has changed us: shaking us to our core as a nation and as individuals as we experience something that’s never happened in modern history. People are scared, people are uncertain, and we don’t know what’s going to come next.

That’s why, when speaking to Larry Walsh, CEO of 2112 Group today about the research they did regarding the pandemic’s impact on the channel, it was refreshing to hear a message of hope amid the constant stream of negativity coming at us – seemingly from every direction.

Acronis COVID-19 Response Programs

The reality of the COVID-19 pandemic has become all too real for individuals and organizations; it’s become clear that the only way to contain the virus and keep the healthcare system from becoming overloaded is to reduce close personal interactions. The need for people to work from home when possible has become critical for businesses that may have never considered the option before.

As a cyber protection company, we believe strongly in protecting data, applications, and systems at all times – even when employees are working from home.

As a result, the executive team at Acronis has decided to make our secure, enterprise-grade file sync and share technology available for free to partners so that organizations can remain both productive and secure during this challenging period.

Acronis Executive Response to COVID-19

As the novel coronavirus/COVID-19 continues to spread and impact individuals, organizations, and communities across the globe, we want to share how Acronis is responding to the pandemic.

While our work as a cyber protection company is focused on keeping data, applications, and systems protected, in the face of this crisis, Acronis is committed to ensuring our employees, partners and their families are protected too, while we provide the same high level of support to our partners and customers.

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.
