Acronis intros advanced protection pack for service providers

Acronis has announced the new Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud advanced protection pack, which includes Advanced File Sync and Share, for service providers.

Building on the file-sharing capabilities in Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud, Advanced File Sync and Share brings layering additional data security capabilities such as blockchain-based data notarisation and electronic signatures so service providers can strengthen their workplace collaboration services.

This is in response to rising demand for secure file sync and share services as 88 percent of organisations worldwide required employees to work from home. As a result, 67 percent of businesses spent more on remote tools and web conferencing.

However, traditional file sharing solutions do not address modern organisations’ data protection concerns such as control over storage locations, access to data, and what people can do with that data.

“Every survey and trend indicates remote work is here to stay, so managed service providers (MSPs) need a way to keep client employees productive and safe when accessing and sharing valuable company data,” said Jan-Jaap Jager, Board Advisor and Chief Revenue Officer of Acronis.

“Unlike traditional file sharing solutions that are not built for service providers, Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud with Advanced File Sync and Share delivers a secure work collaboration service that empowers MSPs with multi-tiering and multi-tenancy. And since it’s integrated with our full range of backup, cybersecurity, and endpoint protection management, partners can deliver it all through a single management console,” he added.

Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud gives essential cyber protection capabilities to MSPs that they can build their services on – including file sync and share on a pay-as-you-go basis.
