Acronis Unveils Its Cyber Cloud Data Centre In Dubai

Amidst Surging Demand For Cyber Protection

Acronis, the Boston-based global leader in cyber protection, has launched its Cyber Cloud data centre in Dubai, the commercial and tourism capital of the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Like in Istanbul, Turkey, and Tel Aviv, Israel, the new data centre delivers secure, reliable cybersecurity solutions for the Middle East region’s evolving needs.

Acronis’s launch of the new data centre in Dubai is a strategic move that demonstrates our commitment to capitalising on the Middle East region’s burgeoning technological landscape, escalating digitisation trends, and cybersecurity infrastructure.

The new data centre is ISO 27001 and IEC 22237 compliant and features state-of-the-art hardware components, robust network infrastructure, and high-performance storage systems that meet leading global standards.

The Acronis Cyber Cloud data centre in Dubai stands out because it empowers Acronis’ partners in the region to innovate new services, enhance data protection capabilities, and manage data sovereignty more efficiently. Moreover, it ensures fast access and continuous availability, two critical features in today’s digital landscape.

Key Regional Asset

Ziad Nasr, Middle East General Manager at Acronis, highlighted the role of the new Acronis Cyber Cloud data centre in the region’s cybersecurity landscape. He said: “As cyber threats continue to rise regionally and globally, our latest data centre will play a crucial role in helping organisations access robust cyber protection and effective data recovery solutions.

“With businesses in the region constantly battling sophisticated cyberattacks, Acronis’ integrated solutions, combining cybersecurity and data protection powered by AI and machine learning, are uniquely poised to meet these emerging challenges​​,” Nasr added.

In recent years, the UAE has emerged as a prominent hub for data centre infrastructure, reflecting the nation’s rapid technological advancement and digital transformation initiatives.

The proliferation of data centres in the UAE is driven by several factors, including the UAE government’s strategic investments in technology infrastructure, favourable business environment, and increasing demand for digital services across various sectors.

Recognising the critical role of data centres in supporting the digital economy, the UAE government has implemented policies to attract investment and facilitate the establishment of world-class data facilities.

Advanced Technologies

Leading domestic and international technology companies have invested significantly in building state-of-the-art data centres in the UAE. These facilities leverage advanced technologies such as cloud computing, AI, and edge computing to meet the growing demand for computing power, storage, and connectivity.

The UAE’s geographical location also serves as a strategic advantage for data centre operators, enabling them to cater to the needs of regional and international clients. Moreover, the country’s robust infrastructure, including advanced telecommunications networks and reliable power supply, further enhances its appeal as a preferred destination for data centre investments.

The pandemic further underscored the importance of data centres in supporting remote work, online education, e-commerce, and digital healthcare services. As organisations increasingly rely on digital solutions to adapt to the evolving business landscape, the UAE’s demand for data centre services is expected to grow.

Industry experts anticipate continued expansion and innovation in the UAE’s data centre sector, driven by technological advancements, evolving regulatory frameworks, and growing digitalisation efforts across various industries.

A cornerstone of Acronis’ security infrastructure is its network of geographically distributed data centres strategically located in key regions worldwide. Rigorous assessments ensure that only trusted providers meeting stringent criteria are selected, with considerations ranging from facility capabilities to geopolitical factors.

In particular, Acronis Cloud data centres leverage sophisticated enterprise-level security, privacy, and compliance mechanisms for businesses of all sizes.

Cutting-Edge Features

These data centres, including the newly established Acronis facility in Dubai, boast cutting-edge physical security measures, redundant power systems, and high-availability architectures, ensuring uninterrupted service and data integrity.

Implementing advanced asset tracking, access control, and vulnerability management mechanisms fortifies Acronis’ security posture, enabling consistent service delivery and proactive threat mitigation. Regular internal and external audits serve as checkpoints to verify compliance with established standards and identify emerging risks, ensuring continuous improvement and adaptation to evolving threats.

The unveiling of the Acronis Cyber Cloud data centre in Dubai aligns with the company’s recent launch of its Managed Detection and Response (MDR) and Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) solutions, which aim to enhance business resilience and enable comprehensive security frameworks for clients.
