Bridging Data Protection And Security
There are security vendors and data protection vendors and attempts to bring the two together have not always been successful—think Symantec’s acquisition of Veritas.
Now think Acronis. Acronis is a unique hybrid company, one of the few that actually combines data protection and security as part of an integrated offering aimed for the most part at the service provider community. The company started as a data protection technology developerand eventually brought that technology to the cloud before the addition of cybersecurity capabilities in 2018, followed by the integration of the two.
Acronis CEO Serguei Beloussov recently sat down with CRN to discuss the company’s blend of security and data protection and where those offerings might change in 2021. He also talked about the company’s differentiation in the market and how it takes advantage of an increasing number of acquisitions.
Here’s a look at the present and future of Acronis, according to Beloussov.
