 Industry leaders deliver new joint solution for mobile workers to safely share content and collaborate on any device from any location  

Burlington, MA and San Carlos, CA— August 31, 2015 — Acronis®, a global leader in data protection, and Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq: CHKP), the largest pure-play security vendor globally, today announced a partnership to eliminate mobile threats for companies by providing integrated data security and protection for mobile workers. Through a new joint solution that combines Check Point Capsule – a mobile security solution – with Acronis Access Advanced – a secure file sync & share solution – companies can enable mobile workers to safely share content and collaborate on any device from any location, while protecting them from data loss, device theft and malware by extending the corporate security policy to mobile devices.

Protecting Mobile Devices with Advanced Data Safety, Security and Privacy

Acronis is focused on providing companies with complete data protection through an integrated set of solutions, including backup, disaster recovery and file sync & share. Acronis believes that complete data protection not only requires the most advanced data safety, but also data security to protect companies from outside threats, and data privacy to ensure that they stay in control of their data at all times – in transit, on mobile devices and in the cloud. To achieve this, Acronis leverages a highly flexible and open architecture that supports easy integration with leading 3rd party solutions, the latest global encryption standards including AES256, and private and secure search.

Check Point protects companies from cyberattacks by leveraging a complete security architecture that defends against threats to an enterprise’s network and out to mobile devices. Check Point Capsule provides seamless security to protect business data, establish a secure business environment on mobile devices, and secure business documents, devices, and networks.

By pairing Acronis Access Advanced with Check Point Capsule remote users are granted secure access to all corporate content on mobile devices with shared file repositories transparently synchronized, ensuring that users are able to seamlessly extend their work spaces to their devices while remaining secure at all times. The seamless integration of Acronis Access Advanced with Check Point Capsule Docs ensures that all documents are encrypted and accessible only to authorized personnel. Enterprises also have a full audit trail of who accesses what document and when.

Leveraging the strong global presence of both companies, including the Check Point R&D center in Israel and the new Acronis R&D in Singapore that focuses on security, Acronis and Check Point are able to support the most advanced security standards available today and are well positioned to meet the unique security needs of companies worldwide.

“In today’s evolving threat landscape, it’s critical to turn technology, and security, into an enabler for business growth,” said Alon Kantor, vice president, business development at Check Point Software Technologies. “Through this partnership with Acronis, we’re able to deliver strong solutions that will allow organizations to secure their mobile workforce and continue business as usual, with the confidence that their data will remain in their own hands.”

“As companies and employees around the world continue to embrace mobile working and mobile devices, valuable company data is more vulnerable than ever before,” said Dvir Ben-Aroya, vice president, business development at Acronis. “We believe in providing complete data protection that extends across data safety, security and privacy, and partnering with leaders like Check Point brings the added protection of industry-leading security to our solutions.”

The joint Acronis and Check Point solution is available now through existing channels of both companies. View the Acronis Check Point joint solution data sheet here.
