Acronis unveils latest backup solution
Backup 12 expands data protection to the Cloud, physical and virtual systems and mobile devices
Acronis, provider of hybrid cloud data protection, has announced Acronis Backup 12, a new solution that seeks to protect businesses’ full digital image.
With most business assets now being digital and not confined to a single device or location, businesses need a backup solution that is designed to provide complete data protection to support this new way of operating. Acronis Backup 12 is designed to backup and protect company data in today’s hybrid cloud IT environments – whether it resides in the cloud, on-premises, across virtual and physical systems, in remote systems, and on mobile devices, the company says.
“Data is the lifeline of today’s digital businesses – without it your company will not survive,” said Serguei Beloussov, co-founder and CEO at Acronis. “With Acronis Backup 12, businesses get the complete protection required in this new digital world with the ability to control their data no matter where it resides combined with the power to get it back faster than ever before in the event of a loss or an outside attack.”
Legacy backup solutions fail to provide adequate protection due to the increasingly complex IT infrastructures in use today with multiple physical systems, virtual environments, cloud workloads, and more mobile devices. Companies also face greater risks and vulnerabilities related to external threats like Ransomware, which has seen a 400% increase in mobile device attacks since 2014.
As a result, ‘improving data backup and recovery consistently ranks among the top IT priorities for organizations of all sizes, year over year,’ according to Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG).
“We’ve never been more dependent on our data than as we are today, nor has our data been so distributed across so many servers, services, and endpoints,” said Jason Buffington, Principal Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG). “As production workloads continue to evolve and data volumes increase, legacy approaches for backup and recovery quickly become inadequate, thus driving the need for faster, more comprehensive approaches to data protection and recovery. Acronis Backup 12 is an exciting alternative for businesses looking for a single solution with unified management console that enables users and IT staff to quickly manage and recover data, no matter where it resides.”
Acronis Backup 12 is designed to give businesses control over the location of their data, systems, and backups, including best-in-class capabilities for protecting virtual environments. As a result, IT managers always know where their company data is located and who has access to it, even when stored in the cloud.
In the event of data loss, Acronis Backup 12 provides businesses with a range of recovery options, including file, email, and database recovery; system recovery, including bare-metal recovery, active restore, instant restore, and vmFlashBack; cloud disaster recovery; and physical data shipment. Acronis Backup 12 also enables IT Managers to migrate data, applications and systems to any platform.
