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.
