New no-charge licensing enables MSPs to offer cyber protection services on more endpoints based on Acronis’ best-of-breed backup, award-winning anti-malware, and protection management at little to no cost
As part of its 2021 Cyber Protection Week activities, Acronis, a global leader in cyber protection, unveiled a new, no-cost version of Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud, its award-winning service provider solution. 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.
With this announcement, the company’s current Acronis Cyber Backup Cloud will be extended with cyber protection capabilities – including the company’s best-of-breed backup, award-winning anti-malware, and protection management – and renamed Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud.
“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.
“We asked, and Acronis delivered. The company’s new licensing model provides us with an even better grasp on how to use the award-winning cyber protection tools to monitor our clients’ data at little to no upfront costs,” said Ralitsa Kilian, CCO of ALSO Bulgaria. “In today’s work climate, we must be flexible and add-on services when needed. Our partnership with Acronis allows us to do just that.”
