Acronis Cyber Protect brings AI-powered integration of data protection and cybersecurity, enabling service providers to improve productivity and defend their clients against cyberthreats

Acronis, a global leader in cyber protection, announced today the availability of Acronis Cyber Protect, an innovative new cyber protection solution that integrates backup, disaster recovery, next-gen anti-malware, cybersecurity, and endpoint management tools into one service. Acronis Cyber Protect eliminates complexity, improves productivity, and enables managed service providers (MSP) to efficiently make security a focal point of their portfolio – ensuring their business can meet client expectations for data, applications, and systems security and protection.

The primary challenges MSPs face are complexity, inadequate security, and low productivity. The lack of integration between the patchwork of vendor solutions they use to build their services decreases security, complicates employee training, productivity, and usability – all while increasing support and licensing costs with multiple vendors. Acronis Cyber Protect changes the game by giving MSPs a single solution to deliver backup, anti-malware, security, and endpoint management capabilities such as vulnerability assessments, URL filtering, and patch management.

These integrated capabilities create new opportunities for MSPs to deliver enhanced cybersecurity. With Acronis Cyber Protect, MSPs can proactively avoid cyberattacks, minimize downtime, ensure fast and easy recoveries, and automate the configuration of client protection to counter the latest cyberthreats. The result is improved margins, better profitability, easier SLA compliance, greater performance, and decreased churn – all at a lower cost.

AV-Test.org, the respected German security institute known for putting malware security solutions through rigorous testing, ran a pre-release version of Acronis Cyber Protect in March 2020 on a computer running Windows 10 Professional.

AV-Test tested both the status and dynamic detection rates of Acronis Cyber Protect, scanning a set of 6,932 malicious Windows executable (PE) files. Acronis scored perfectly with a verified 100% detection rate. Acronis also delivered a perfect result in the lab’s false-positive test, causing zero false positives. More information about the test and findings are available here.

Acronis recognizes that even with these test results and AI-enhanced protection, it is impossible to achieve 100% security at every moment. If a threat does slip through the security measures, Acronis Cyber Protect provides the best business continuity to ensure MSPs are able to restore affected data, applications, and systems quickly and effectively.

Helping MSPs secure remote work amid COVID-19

Acronis rapidly developed a holistic set of features for Acronis Cyber Protect to help MSPs and their clients smoothly and safely meet the challenges of today’s remote work environments including:

  • To help with finances: The ability to pause billing for non-paying customers while preserving their backups; Launched Acronis #CyberFit Financing and promotions through July 31, 2020; No extra charges for Acronis Cyber Protect and no billing for Acronis Cyber Backup for new clients
  • To help protect employees: Voice-enabled, touchless control for remote connections to office machines for end-users; Security alerts from Acronis Cyber Protection Operations Centers related to COVID-19
  • For remote work devices and users: Default templates with secure protection plans for remote work devices; Native VPN capability; Secure file sync and share integration; Remote data wipe
The industry needs unified, modern cyber protection

“Traditional backup solutions are dead because they are not secure enough, and traditional anti-virus applications do not protect data from modern cyberthreats. Legacy solutions are no longer able to counter the dangers today’s businesses face,” said Acronis Founder and CEO Serguei “SB” Beloussov. “Service providers need to offer their clients integrated cyber protection that covers all Five Vectors of Cyber Protection - safety, accessibility, privacy, authenticity, and security. With Acronis Cyber Protect, service providers have the ability to deliver solutions that ensure their clients are #CyberFit and ready to face any new threats to their data, applications, and systems.”

Christophe Bertrand, Senior Analyst at the Enterprise Strategy Group, explains, “As evidenced by the results of a recent ESG multi-client research study on the MSP landscape in 2020, the MSP industry is in desperate need of digital transformation into the newest generation of cyber protection services, replacing outdated legacy solutions with a modern, integrated offering.  By delivering lower-costs to MSPs with new opportunities for recurring revenue, coupled with the latest AI-enhanced cyber solutions, clients will be set up for success in 2020 and beyond.”

Acronis Cyber Protect is a demonstration of the power of integration. It features one unified licensing model, one agent and backend, one management console, one user interface, and a high level of integration among services – sharing data and automating actions to greatly improve the security posture for endpoint and edge devices.

“Acronis is among the companies on the forefront for integrated data protection and cyber protection,” said Phil Goodwin, Research Director, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group, IDC. “We believe that Acronis Cyber Protect is among the most comprehensive attempts to provide data protection and cybersecurity to date.”
