As part of its 2021 Cyber Protection Week activities, Acronis, is providing a no-cost version of Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud. The new licensing makes it more profitable for service providers to design and offer a comprehensive cyber protection services portfolio with little to no upfront costs.
“Using separate tools to address different IT requirements and counter cyberthreats is a complicated, inefficient, and costly way for service providers to operate,” said Serguei “SB” Beloussov, Founder and CEO of Acronis. “By unifying data protection, cybersecurity, and protecition management in one, any service provider can eliminate the complexity and management headaches while improving security. With this new licensing model for Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud, our partners can deliver superior cyber protection services to their clients at little to no upfront cost.”
Featuring a set of essential cyber protection capabilities included at no cost or on a pay-as-you-go basis, the new version of Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud enables MSPs to build services at little to no upfront expense, ensuring 100% coverage of clients’ workloads with cyber protection.
MSPs can also expand their service portfolio to meet client requirements and market demand with advanced protection packs that extend their capabilities. By adding advanced protection packs such as Advanced Backup, Advanced Security, Advanced Disaster Recovery, and Advanced Management onto of Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud, MSPs gain the flexibility to expand and customize their services to deliver the optimum level of cyber protection for each client and every workload.
Installed with one agent and managed through one console, the centralized management of Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud ensures MSPs can fully protect their clients without having to juggle multiple solutions. A single pane of glass provides the visibility and control needed to deliver comprehensive cyber protection – from creating local and cloud-based backups to stopping zero-day malware attacks with advanced AI-based anti-malware and antivirus defenses that are VB100 certified.
“Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud’s model has revolutionised our entire backup infrastructure, it truly does everything we were promised and more. It has lowered our operational costs, while enabling our servers to complete 600% more backups a day,” said Bradley Silverman, Technical Operations Manager of Ventra IP CTO, ANZ. “Backups are mission critical for us, so being able to provide our customers more backups, more frequently and with the ease Acronis provides has been a huge part of our offerings. Their pricing model means we get all these great features while being able to build the perfect solution for our unique requirements.”
Proving the power of integration
The announcement comes as Acronis announced the findings of its annual 2021 Cyber Protection Week survey, which surveyed 4,400 IT users and IT pros from around the world. One of the key findings was that more solutions does not mean more protection – 80% of organizations now run as many as 10 solutions simultaneously for their data protection and cybersecurity needs, yet more than half of those organizations suffered unexpected downtime last year because of data loss.
Acronis’ new licensing model is effective March 31.
