Singapore unicorn and global leader in cybersecurity, Acronis, has released the world’s first complete cyber protection solution.
Acronis Cyber Protect integrates backup, disaster recovery, next-gen anti-malware and more into one AI-powered platform to defend clients against cyberthreats.
The solution also includes COVID-19 URL filtering and total Zoom security, which is particularly timely with the plague of pandemic-related cybersecurity threats like those affecting Zoom.
Acronis Founder and CEO, Serguei Beloussov, said: “Traditional backup solutions are dead because they are not secure enough, and traditional anti-virus applications do not protect data from modern cyberthreats.”
Acronis hopes this solution will empower managed service providers to make security a focal point of their portfolio by eliminating complexity, improving productivity and cutting costs.
The Singaporean cybersecurity unicorn, which serves 500,000 businesses and 100% of Fortune 1000 companies, believes patchwork vendor solutions decrease security and complicates employee training on numerous different softwares.
Mr Beloussov added: “Service providers need to offer their clients integrated cyber protection that covers all Five Vectors of Cyber Protection – safety, accessibility, privacy, authenticity, and security.”
The complete cyber protection solution achieved a perfect score of 100% detection rate after scanning 6,932 malicious Windows executable files. But if a threat does slip through the security measures, Acronis Cyber Protect provides business continuity to help restore data and recover systems effectively.
Phil Goodwin, Research Director, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group at IDC, said: “Acronis is among the companies on the forefront for integrated data protection and cyber protection.”
AV-Test, the German security institute known for rigorously resting malware security solutions, found that Acronis Cyber Protect delivered a perfect result in the lab’s false-positive test, causing zero false positives.
Mr Goodwin added: “We believe that Acronis Cyber Protect is among the most comprehensive attempts to provide data protection and cybersecurity to date.”
A personal version of the complete cybersecurity solution is planned for a Q3 2020 release.
The cybersecurity unicorn has done Singapore proud after being founded in 2003 and growing into a global cyber protection leader with more than 1,500 employees in 33 locations across 18 countries.
