Four-time J.League Japanese professional football title winners Yokohama F. Marinos use Acronis Backup, Storage, File Sync and Share solutions for robust Cyber Protection

Acronis, a global leader in cyber protection, announced a global technology partnership with Yokohama F. Marinos. As part of the partnership, Acronis will provide cyber protection to the club to help them stay #CyberFit and ready to take on the technology challenges of 2020 and beyond.

In topflight football, teams rely on data to review their performance and analyze the opposition. As is the case with many of Acronis's sports partners, developing a winning game plan involves meticulous analysis of key elements such as passes, touches, set piece goals, player heat maps, and more. These are studied before, during and after every match in order to get that vital competitor edge over the opposition.

Partnering with Acronis, the reigning J-League title champions will be able to access innovative cyber protection technology, significantly optimizing their workload management tasks.

Technology and data in particular is increasingly important to teams in this ever-developing digital age. So much so, that during the days leading up to important matches, data is available through iPads in the Yokohama F. Marinos locker room so that players can review historical data with their coaches and make last-minute adjustments to the playbook. It is also vital for the team to analyze data in their post-match analysis.

However, in 2020, the situation has changed. COVID-19 has placed sports on hold on a global basis, with games postponed as countries implement lockdowns and social distancing policies to flatten the curve, keeping citizens, players and fans as safe as possible.

Sports teams worldwide went into hibernation, but cyber criminals did not. They are escalating their activities with ransomware, spear phishing, and other advanced attacks, making cyber protection of data and systems and being #CyberFit more important than ever.

With Acronis, Yokohama F. Marinos’ data, applications, and systems will be fully protected. Acronis’ technology and solutions are designed around a principle known as the Five Vectors of Cyber Protection: Safety, Accessibility, Privacy, Authenticity, and Security (SAPAS).

The latest Acronis Cyber Protect solution takes care of security patch management, backup, and ransomware protection, immediately providing multiple layers of defense, covering all five vectors of cyber protection. It integrates backup, disaster recovery, AI-based malware protection, remote assistance security, patching, secure file sync and share, vulnerability assessment, and URL filtering into a single solution. It automates the response to emerging threats, significantly increasing effectiveness of cyber protection. This synergy offers prevention, detection, response, recovery, and forensic capabilities in an easy, efficient, and secure way.

“Acronis’ technology is perfectly suited for a high-pressure, digitally intensive environment with a proven, integrated approach that delivers easy, efficient, reliable and secure cyber protection for all data, apps and systems. Acronis cyber protection technology will help Yokohama F. Marinos to stay #CyberFit by protecting their valuable workloads and ensuring reliability of IT. We are confident this partnership will benefit Yokohama F. Marinos, Acronis, and all our partners and customers,” said Acronis Founder and CEO, Serguei Beloussov.

Ryoji Kurosawa, President of Yokohama F. Marinos, said: “It is my honor to announce this new partnership with Acronis, a leading brand in the world of cyber protection. On behalf of the club organization, I would like to thank them for joining the F. Marinos family and it is such an encouraging news for us in this difficult time. At Yokohama F. Marinos, we manage huge volumes of data from our players, fans and matches, and through to club administration and more.Acronis’ expertise is an invaluable addition to enhancing our data storage, backup & file sync and share requirements. As digital communication is currently an important key for us to maintain and drive club operation during this COVID-19 outbreak, I look forward to working with Acronis and I believe their latest technologies will enable us to be #CyberFit.”
