Acronis in Advanced Security and EDR solutions’ native integration
Comes to clients at no extra cost
Acronis, a global leader in cyberprotection, has launched the native integration of its Advanced Security and Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) solutions.
This new initiative cements Acronis’ standing as a leader in cyberprotection and acknowledges the inadequacy of traditional security measures against the rising tide of AI-driven cyber threats.
As part of its strategic response to this pressing challenge, Acronis now provides its users with crucial EDR capabilities at no extra cost.
Fuelled by the escalating threat of AI-driven cyber-attacks, this amalgamation of cybersecurity features aims to assist partners in fortifying their defence mechanisms against evolving threats efficiently and cost-effectively.
In the swiftly evolving cybersecurity landscape, EDR has transitioned from being a mere preference to an absolute necessity, particularly for Managed Service Providers (MSPs) striving to defend against sophisticated cyber threats.
Historically grappling with the complexities of managing a diverse set of security tools, MSPs have faced elevated administrative burdens, increased human error possibilities, and an overall more susceptible environment.
Acronis steps into this breach by integrating Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) with endpoint management, backup, and recovery solutions.
Ezequiel Steiner, CEO at Acronis, said: “MSPs and their customers are constantly under attack, facing increasingly more sophisticated threats. Traditional antimalware offerings have become obsolescent. MSPs need EDR.”
Understanding the challenges associated with widespread EDR adoption, Acronis has added it at no additional cost, disrupting the security market and enabling MSPs to deploy Acronis security to all endpoints.
The MSP-centric design of Acronis EDR enhances technician efficiency through automation, significantly reducing false positives.
Notable features of Acronis’ integrated Advanced Security + EDR solution for MSPs:
- Complete security solution: MSPs can effortlessly deploy a comprehensive security framework that incorporates rapid recovery capabilities in the event of a successful attack. This integrated approach streamlines security measures, presenting a unified front against modern threats.
- Compliance and protection: The solution empowers MSPs to shield against modern threats and effortlessly comply with cyber insurance requirements. Acronis’ integrated technologies enable partners to bolster their security posture, ensuring the highest protection and compliance standards.
- Greater efficiency: By minimising administrative overhead through a single security platform, Acronis empowers MSPs to maximise efficiency. The streamlined approach simplifies management tasks, reduces the risk of errors, and enhances overall operational effectiveness.
The proliferation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools has empowered threat actors to escalate attack sophistication, volume, and speed, posing an increased threat to MSPs and their clients.
Acronis responds to these challenges by evolving alongside its partners’ needs and driving innovation in cyber protection.
Recognising the critical importance of securing all endpoints, Acronis avers that MSPs should deploy security to every endpoint. While there may be a tendency to focus on protecting only critical endpoints, it is crucial to acknowledge that any endpoint can serve as an entry point for network penetration.
Acronis’ integration of Advanced Security and EDR solutions reaffirms its commitment to leading the security sector, providing solutions that comprehensively address emerging challenges.
