ZNetLive rolls out Acronis Backup Cloud to provide businesses with constant data availability in changing threat landscape

ZNetLive, India’s leading web hosting and cloud services provider, today announced an expansion of its product portfolio to include Acronis Backup Cloud. The new service delivers reliable hybrid cloud backup to businesses of all sizes, enabling them to completely and efficiently protect critical data in any environment.

With ransomware attacks growing in frequency and complexity, business data is continuously at risk. Security experts and the FBI agree that with more cybercriminals trying to earn easy money, ransomware attacks will continue to be more frequent, especially among corporate and small business environments.

Backups are widely considered the ultimate defense.

“For any business, data is imminent for its survival. Data security is utmost as no successful business can afford a minute of downtime. With organizations tasked to protect increasingly heterogeneous and complex environments spanning across physical, virtual and cloud systems, choosing the right data protection mechanism becomes a herculean task.

Thus, we have rolled out the Acronis Backup Cloud solution – the most effective cloud backup that ensures business continuity by addressing all backup and recovery challenges of the enterprises across different infrastructures,” said Munesh Jadoun, Founder & CEO, ZNetLive.

Acronis Backup Cloud provides the most secure solution to fight the growing threat of ransomware. In addition to storing data in the cloud and out of the reach of hackers, the service includes Acronis Active Protection, a built-in anti-ransomware solution that:

  • Leverages advanced machine learning and artificial intelligence-based technology to monitor systems in real time to actively detect an attack.
  • Stops suspicious computer activities immediately to prevent unauthorized encryption, modification or alteration of files, applications, and systems.
  • Notifies users of potential threats and automatically restores any files affected in an attack.

The real-time protection from Acronis Active Protection helps businesses avoid costly downtime, which otherwise would be required to recover from a ransomware attack.

ZNetLive knows that modern IT pros need effective solutions that effectively address modern IT challenges,” said Lian Wee Loo, Acronis Senior Director of Cloud Business in APAC and Japan. “In the face of growing threats like ransomware, we’re proud to partner with a company that is equally committed to protecting their customers’ data. We look forward to a great relationship with ZNetLive.

Introduction to Cloud Storage: Understanding Your Options

Cloud storage solution is emerging as an alternative to the in-house data storage and backup. It is a growing industry where data storage solution is offered through third-party managed platforms – typically over the internet. Data, folders and files can be shared and stored in a multi-tenant, resource pool that is accessible from anywhere.

Several types of cloud storage solutions are available for personal as well as business usage. For example – one of the first and popular cloud storage services were Google Docs and Spreadsheets offered by the search engine giant. They have played a pivotal role in popularizing cloud storage in both business and personal level.

In a cloud storage environment, company and personal data can be accessed from anywhere and on any internet enabled device if it is integrated to the cloud. Cloud storage solutions have allowed organizations to free spaces earlier occupied by in-house data storage.

By adopting cloud storage solutions organizations have benefited in more than one way. It offers them a scalable environment where the storage capacity can be adjusted as per the volume of data and accessibility requirements. These can be automated so that the storage capacity expands and contracts with change in demand.

It is flexible and offers anytime, anywhere accessibility. Cloud data storage has liberated businesses from the confinement of desktops and helped them go mobile. Organizations adapting BYOD environment are facilitating information storage and transfer through cloud storing solutions.

Advantages of Cloud Storage

Cloud storage can differ in terms of the services offered by them like – storing file, emails or pictures. Others may offer storing solutions to all kind of digital data.

Normally, cloud storage spans over several datacenters located at different geographical locations. It is technically known as redundancy. As a result, they offer faster access to stored information and at the same time better backup solution. Cloud backup can resolve issues with data lost by restoring data faster. The information stored online is replicated for safekeeping so that if something happens to the client end computer system data can be restored from the backup with no time loss.

Depending upon your requirements and budget you can opt for public or private storage solutions. Normally, companies with stronger IT infrastructure may decide to build their private cloud storage for safekeeping mission-critical information.

Hybrid cloud storage is finding wider acceptance with many large organizations. Hybrid cloud storage offers the best of two worlds. The mission-critical data is stored in the confined and secured environment and the rest hosted in scalable, multi-tenant platforms of cloud hosting service providers.
