These newly launched protection solutions are Acronis Cyber Protect, which integrates seven key cyber protection capabilities into one easy-to-use solution and Acronis Cyber Platform, which is set to provide developers and ISVs the ability to customize, extend and integrate Acronis Cyber Protection solutions. The Acronis Cyber Infrastructure designed to deliver cost-efficient, easy-to-use and reliable hyper-converged infrastructure optimized for cyber protection deployments.
Speaking at the summit, Nidal Othman, Co-Founder and Managing Director of StarLink said that “cloud adoption was one area that has experienced growth in the Middle East. He termed the Acronis #CyberFit Summit as a timely event for those looking for a secure way to start using cloud technology.”
“Every day, more cloud vendors are jumping into the lucrative MENA market, with an estimated value of US$2.2 billion to cloud vendors. This figure is expected to increase by 24 per cent yearly on average as UAE governments allocate resources to cloud technology to power their smart city projects.”
