Acronis announces availability of Cyber Protect beta version as demand for endpoint security for remote work skyrockets

Cybersecurity

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.

Embedded remote work application protection

  • Vulnerabilities from web applications are automatically blocked

Enabled proactive cybersecurity

Embraced by the industry

In an IDC report published by Phil Goodwin and Robyn Westervelt, Acronis Cyber Protect was named: “one of the most comprehensive attempts to provide data protection and cyber security to date”, and added that “Acronis shows potential to disrupt traditional IT security vendors by delivering integrated components for backup/recovery and malware detection, and protection.”

 

Registration to test the beta version of Acronis Cyber Protect -on-premises is now open.
