Sponsored by Businesswire

Acronis, a global leader in cyber
, announced today at IT
Nation Explore, ConnectWise’s partner conference
that the Acronis
Cyber Cloud
service provider platform will now feature native
integration with ConnectWise Control. In addition, Acronis is expanding
the features and functionality available in some of ConnectWise’s
solutions that are already integrated with the platform. These
integrations mean service providers using ConnectWise and Acronis Cyber
Cloud can streamline their business and deliver new generation cyber
protection services with seamless access to ConnectWise Manage,
ConnectWise Automate, and ConnectWise Control.

The new integration with ConnectWise Control enables users to provide
the Acronis Cyber Cloud backup service to existing customers and create
new Acronis Cyber Cloud customers on the fly. The ConnectWise Manage and
ConnectWise Automate integrations will feature a number of improvements,
which will be introduced in Acronis Cyber Cloud’s next update.

“Acronis’ core mission is to protect all data, wherever it is. That
means ensuring all individuals, businesses, and service providers have
access to easy, efficient, secure cyber protection,” said Pat Hurley,
Vice President and General Manager of the Americas at Acronis. “As we’ve
pursued the vision of total cyber protection, ConnectWise has been a
critical partner. This new integration and the enhancements to our
existing integrations demonstrates Acronis’ continued commitment to our
relationship with ConnectWise, and the protection of their customers’
data, applications and systems.”

Modern Cyber Protection for Modern Service Providers

These integrations between Acronis and ConnectWise represent a clear
advantage for service providers. By using a single platform for all
their needs, service providers can simultaneously expand their service
capabilities while decreasing the emerging complexity, cost, and
security concerns that face their customers and their business.

The Acronis Cyber Cloud platform delivers cyber protection services with
an unprecedented level of ease, offering service providers access to backupdisaster
sync and share

authenticity, and security of data (SAPAS) through a single management

Phil Goodwin of IDC explains, “There is a great opportunity for services
providers to build a business by meeting the demands of the growing
cyber protection market. The latest edition of the
Acronis Cyber Cloud platform provides a set of products that providers
can use to market their own comprehensive backup, disaster recovery, and
ransomware protection solutions.”

Connecting Acronis and ConnectWise

Through the Acronis Cyber Cloud integrations with ConnectWise, service
providers gain efficiency and accessibility through native support
capabilities in both ConnectWise and Acronis products:

  • With the Acronis Cyber Cloud extension for ConnectWise Control users
    are able to remotely install and update backup agents on individual
    machines or groups of machines, apply backup plans and Active
    Protection plans to customer machines, and monitor a device’s status
    through the ConnectWise Control console.
  • With the Acronis Cyber Cloud extension for ConnectWise Automate users
    are able to protect devices from ransomware with Acronis Active
    Protection, support agentless VM backup, monitor activity through
    Acronis’ audit log, monitor alerts for all data sources, develop
    pre-defined backup reports, and provision all cloud services and

    billing, monitor and automatically create tickets for failed
    backup/recovery operation and quota-related issues, monitor backup
    statuses, and seamlessly fit the service into existing help desk
    operations through the ConnectWise Manage console.

These integrations join more than 10 others already connected with
Acronis Cyber Cloud, including Autotask, cPanel, Plesk, and more, and
represent a further expansion of the key benefits service providers will
find with the Acronis platform.

Acronis will preview these integrations with ConnectWise – and the many
other features of Acronis Cyber Cloud – at Booth #300 throughout
ConnectWise’s IT Nation Explore partner conference.
