A1 and Acronis Launch Cyber Backup in Slovenia, Serbia, North Macedonia
A1 Telekom Austria Group expanded its cyber-security proposition with its strategic partner Acronis. That includes backup and a variety of security controls in three additional markets of its footprint. Following the successful launch of A1 Cyber Backup in Bulgaria and Austria, the service will now be further available in Slovenia, the Republic of Serbia, and North Macedonia.
Cyber Backup is intended for business customers across all segments. It protects against loss of data caused by human errors (such as unintentional deletion of files), natural disasters, suboptimal data storage (such as an outdated cellar), or malware. The solution combines the intelligence of Acronis Secure Backup Solutions and A1´s secure Datacenter storage, professionally maintained and located in Europe, so that in the event of lost or corrupted data, the customer can restore the information from a backup copy.
The second part of the service is cyber protection: advanced and AI-based anti-ransomware and anti-malware security that protects both the backup copy and the live environment of the customer. The services include many automatic data protection features, as well as a user-friendly interface, where all configurations can be easily managed. Both the backup and the integrated cyber-security features of the service are provided in cooperation with Acronis.
“Individuals and companies around the world are heavily relying on data. Yet the cyber risks to that data don’t stop at a nation’s border. Given the comprehensive and effective approach Acronis uses to develop and deliver its solutions, all markets including Slovenia, the Republic of Serbia, and North Macedonia must have access to modern cyber protection. We rely on our partner A1 Telekom Austria Group with their wide and comprehensive presence in the region to reach and protect more businesses”, said Ivan Doudin, Regional Director of Sales for Balkans and Turkey at Acronis.
“The trend of using decentralized data storage and the huge increase of cyberattacks makes it very important to have an easy-to-use backup solution with embedded security features in place. With Acronis we found a partner with a state-of-the-art portfolio to serve our customer demands and is a perfect fit in A1's holistic cyber security offering,” added Thomas Snor, Security Director of A1 Digital.
