Acronis, a global leader in cyber protection, today announced that Acronis Cyber Protect, its cloud offering through service providers, is now available for all, as a beta version, to easily deploy on-premises. The game-changing flagship solution integrates data protection, cybersecurity, and endpoint management – to help people navigate the crucial need for a safe remote work environment. With this release, IT teams get to really try the technology and deploy the solution’s unique capabilities across all their environments to safeguard all data, applications, and systems.
“The COVID-19 pandemic requires more businesses than ever to adopt remote work policies,” said Acronis Executive Officer Serguei “SB” Beloussov. “While remote work offers a lot of benefits, it can put valuable company data at risk of cyberattacks. With the expanded access to a beta version we want to help more organisations and individuals protect their data, devices, and infrastructure.”
A recent survey by Gartner revealed that 74% of organisations intend to permanently shift some employees to remote work. The ability to add comprehensive and proven endpoint security – without increasing complexity or IT staffing requirements – has become a critical business need but also a competitive advantage.
