Tech Intelligence Bulletin (HG Insights) – Acronis has launched Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud, the first and unique cyber protection solution that integrates backup, disaster recovery, next-generation anti-malware, anti-virus, cybersecurity and management tools all in one single console.
The solution, described as “Game-Changing” on the Acronis website, is the result of an effort from Acronis’ R&D centers, 500 developers and analysts. “Traditional backup is dead because it is not secure enough, and traditional anti-viruses do not protect data from modern cyber threats. Legacy solutions are no longer able to counteract the dangers businesses face,” said Acronis Founder and CEO Serguei Beloussov.
Minimizing risk from cyber threats
It is critical for organizations, in particular health systems, to secure their technology applications to minimize the risk from cyber threats. Following a growth in cyber threats in the UK, Acronis’ Cyber Protection Research Center stopped 12% more threats for its users in April 2020 compared to March.
The solution 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 for endpoint and edge devices.
