Celebrating SysAdmin Day 2020

This SysAdmin Day, Acronis is celebrating sysadmins around the world who saw the systems they administrate shift dramatically in 2020 and kept their teams running through it all. With this year’s massive migration to remote work – and all the security, connectivity, privacy, and accessibility challenges that came with it – sysadmins faced enormous obstacles and overcame them all.

Today, we’re sharing some of their stories to highlight just how much they do to keep businesses in business and offering free Zoom virtual backgrounds and digital stickers to help make sure they get the credit they’re due.

Remote workers need cyber protection

When we made the decision a few weeks ago to delay the general availability of Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud, it was because we wanted to incorporate new cyber protection features for remote workers and workloads. After all, an unprecedented number of people were suddenly being forced to work from home, and their data, applications, and systems needed protection.

That same day, we got an email from our colleagues at the market research firm DCIG to let us know they just published a blog article about how one of their analysts successfully used Acronis True Image for cyber protection and resilience at his home office following a hardware failure.

The timing couldn’t have been more synchronistic.
