Acronis Introduces Advanced Security + EDR

Acronis Advanced Security + EDR is a simplified data, application and system protection solution for SMBs and enterprises.

According to the Acronis Cyber Protection Operations Centre Report, global ransomware damage will exceed USD 30 billion by 2023. The ransomware threat remains the number one threat to medium and large enterprises.

Against this backdrop, Acronis, a data protection and cybersecurity company, has introduced its Advanced Security + EDR for Cyber Protect Cloud solution to democratise advanced security solutions by effectively protecting data, applications and systems on a single, centralised platform.

Through Advanced Security + EDR for Cyber Protect Cloud, Acronis simplifies the complex solutions needed to address today’s sophisticated threat landscape. Its unified platform enables IT teams to detect and identify advanced attacks, and then quickly recover using features such as one-click, attack-specific rollback.

Acronis Benefits

This solution is part of the Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud platform, which provides customers with the following benefits:

  • Machine learning-based event correlation and interpretation, with visibility into the attack chain according to MITRE ATT&CK categories.
  • A set of integrated response functions, such as attack-specific reversals, at the click of a button.
  • The ability to investigate, remediate, recover and close security breaches, along with other Cyber Protect Cloud platform capabilities.
  • Reduced complexity and cost, with rapid detection through a single console and unified agent that delivers advanced security in one click, without the need to deploy additional agents and without the difficulties of integrating disparate products from different vendors.


Candid Wüest, Vice President of Research at Acronis, added: “EDR technology is an essential component of any approach to cyber security, for example, we know that zero-day exploits account for 80% of security breaches. To reduce this figure, we focus on the real security and business consequences for our customers and partners as a top priority, with quick and easy remediation being of the utmost importance.

Acronis has been an ideal solution for effective endpoint protection,” said Dave Millier, CSO of Quick Intelligence. The single, dual-featured agent was a key factor in our decision to adopt this solution. It’s great that EDR is now being added to the same agent, as this will help us take our customers’ cyber protection to the next level, without having to rely on another vendor and another agent.
