Acronis EDR Named “Endpoint Security Innovation of the Year ” in 7th Annual CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards Program

Prestigious International Awards Program Recognizes Outstanding Information Security Products and Companies

SCHAFFHAUSEN, Switzerland, October 5, 2023 – Acronis, a global leader in cyber protection, today announced that its Acronis Advanced Security + Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR) for Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud has been selected as winner of the “Endpoint Security Innovation of the Year” award in the 7th annual CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards program conducted by CyberSecurity Breakthrough, a leading independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global information security market today.

The Acronis Advanced Security + Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR) for Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud features easy deployments and rapid detection, response, and recovery with AI, and automation. The solution offers a broad number of out-of-the-box recovery options that take advantage of the integration with Acronis Cyber Protect backup and recovery, endpoint management, and endpoint security capabilities.

The breakthrough solution delivers complete, integrated protection across the NIST security framework and is designed for MSPs in a single agent. With Acronis EDR, users can streamline investigations with prioritization of potential incidents and reduced alert fatigue. Its automated correlation and AI-based guided attack interpretations unlock minutes-not-hours analysis at scale, while an increased visibility across MITRE ATT&CK® rapidly grasps attack analysis and impact.

Acronis EDR users can remediate by network isolating endpoints, killing malicious processes, quartering threats, and rolling back attack changes. Further investigation is done using remote connections and forensic backups, and future attacks can be prevented by blocking analyzed threats from execution and closing open vulnerabilities.

“We are so pleased to receive the ‘Endpoint Security Innovation of the Year’ award. We deliver an integrated solution with a single agent, simple to deploy, manage, and scale - that eliminates the cost, complexity, and security gaps inherent in multiple non-integrated solutions,” said Gaidar Magdanurov, President at Acronis. “Our solution increases reliability and lowers costs for service providers and IT teams. And we will continue to expand upon our EDR and AI-driven capabilities to simplify protecting the IT infrastructure against cyber threats".

The mission of the CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of information security categories, including Cloud Security, Threat Detection, Risk Management, Fraud Prevention, Mobile Security, Email Security and many more. This year’s program attracted thousands of nominations from over 20 different countries throughout the world.

“Most EDR tools can be over-complicated, forcing users into expensive, time-consuming processes to implement and understand. Acronis EDR is easy to deploy and use, while also following industry-established standards,” said Steve Johansson, managing director, CyberSecurity Breakthrough. “Congratulations to Acronis as they deliver the advanced security of EDR to meet the needs of the IT professionals who use it, allowing them to quickly and easily analyze and prioritize security incidents, minimize downtime, and maintain business continuity while protecting their most sensitive data.”

The solution’s prioritized view also helps to investigate suspicious activities to make it easier to focus threat hunting via a threat intelligence feed, forensic insights, and natively integrated tools across the broader Acronis platform. Additionally, Acronis EDR allows for continuous monitoring for security related events using additional features such as automated behavioral- and signature-based engines, URL filtering, and event correlation.
