Acronis Recognized as Visionary in Gartner 2020 Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions
According to the report, “the move toward public cloud, heightened concerns over ransomware, and complexities associated with backup and data management are forcing I&O leaders to rearchitect their backup infrastructure and explore alternative solutions. This research provides analyses of backup and recovery vendors.”
“Over the past several years, Acronis has shifted its focus from being a backup vendor to offering cyber protection, a holistic approach that combines data protection and cybersecurity. It is encouraging to be acknowledged as a Visionary by Gartner, and we see this recognition as validation of the critical interdependency between backup and cybersecurity,” said Acronis Founder and CEO Serguei “SB” Beloussov.
While the Gartner 2020 Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions report is focused on the data center, the primary focus for Acronis has always been protecting the edge and endpoint. Beloussov continues, “We have a unique ability to provide cyber protection for enterprises - focusing on edge and endpoint workloads. Our newest solution Acronis Cyber Protect provides AI-powered anti-malware protection, vulnerability assessments and patch management, continuous data protection, URL filtering and fast, reliable backup and disaster recovery, all from an easy-to-manage console.”
