Acronis, a Platinum Sponsor, presenting at ASCII SMB IT Success Summits 2021

Cyber protection leader continues to extend support in the MSP community, increasing investments in events, sponsorships, partner program, and product licensing

SCHAFFHAUSEN, Switzerland, May 18, 2021 - Acronis, the global leader in cyber protection, announced today that Chief Channel Evangelist Amy Luby will be speaking this week at a ASCII SMB IT Success Summit 2021. On May 20, Luby will deliver a mainstage presentation entitled "Traditional MSP tools are not designed for today's cyberthreats."

During the conference, Luby will be talking with attendees about the specific challenges MSPs face in delivering cybersecurity services. Joined by Senior Solutions Engineer James Abercrombie, they'll also invite attendees to see how Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud, the company's award-winning cyber protection solution for service providers, enables MSPs to deliver comprehensive cyber protection for all endpoints.

Investing in the ASCII event as a Platinum Sponsor for ASCII Success Summits across the US this year is the latest example of Acronis stepping up to engage with and support MSP communities.

"Acronis has always put their MSP communities first and it is great to see them participating in the 2021 ASCII Success Summits," said Cramer Snuggs, founder and CEO, Cascade Technologies. "Acronis launched a new partner portal this year and we leverage the Acronis Cyber Protect platform to provide world-class protection to all of our customers. They are certainly deserving of recognition and we wish them the best of luck in the upcoming ASCII Group awards."

Extending support of MSP communities

Luby explains that she knows from personal experience why it's critical for vendors like Acronis to support the service provider community at this particular time.

"As a former MSP, I know how important camaraderie is for everyone in the channel family," she explains. "The past year has put a tremendous strain on MSPs, not only because of the herculean tasks they had to do to keep their clients online and productive, but because they were not able to meet and collaborate with their peers as often as they'd like. As things start to get back to normal, Acronis wants to help get everyone together - to protect clients and regain that sense of community."

In addition to its ASCII sponsorships, Acronis has committed support to multiple MSP community events happening throughout the year. These include events and speaking series hosted by ConnectBooster, MSP Initiative, ITN Evolve, MSP Ignite, IoTSSA, CompTIA, ChannelPRO, CRN, Kaseya, Jamf, N-able, and DATTO.

Ensuring partner success

Acronis continues to demonstrate its commitment to the success of its service provider partners. During the first half of 2021, the company:

  • Received a $250M investment at a $2.5B valuation from CVC Capital Partners VII and other investors, which will be used to further enhance Acronis' go-to-market initiatives by expanding its broad partner network - most notably MSPs.
  • Launched the #CyberFit Partner Program to support the development of cloud-focused service providers and resellers with greater performance-based benefits and financial incentives;
  • Unveiled a no-charge version of Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud - its award-winning cyber protection product that enables service providers, distributors, and resellers to deliver comprehensive cyber protection for all endpoints for little to no upfront costs;
  • Introduced a new partner portal to enhance service provider enablement by providing easy access to the content, tools, and training designed to help them build a successful - and profitable - cyber protection program;
  • And committed to open 111 new local data centers in countries around the world to ensure service providers can perfectly meet the ever-changing local compliance, data sovereignty, and performance requirements.
