This licensing makes it more profitable for service providers to design and offer a cyber protection services portfolio with little to no upfront costs.
With this announcement, the company’s current Cyber Backup Cloud will be extended with cyber protection capabilities – including the company’s backup, 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,. “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.“

A single pane of glass provides the visibility and control needed to deliver 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’ new licensing model is simplified and their pricing is only getting better for the feature set that Acronis provides on a single agent,” said Matt Couch, UIT project engineer, Fisher’s Technology. “Additionally, the onboarding webinar was easy to follow and I feel confident that Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud provides our clients with the most cost-effective and secure solution on the market.“
Proving power of integration
The announcement comes as the company 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 ten 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.
The company has recognized the cost, efficiency, and security challenges that arise from deploying multiple solutions, which is why the company pioneered the field of cyber protection, integrating cybersecurity, best-of-breed backup, and protection management in a single solution.
To ensure service providers can build their cyber protection service securely, and profitably, the firm‘ new licensing model is effective March 31.
