Acronis, a global leader in hybrid cloud data protection and storage is pleased to celebrate the first anniversary of its partnership with the Scuderia Toro Rosso Formula 1 Team.
The partnership that began in July last year, timed with the launch of the world’s most complete backup, Acronis Backup 12, moved on to the next level in 2017 when Scuderia Toro Rosso began deploying Acronis technology in their own infrastructure, starting with Acronis Access Advanced. The new secure file sync & share solution, with an innovative policy engine, makes the team more productive at the track with faster secure access to the data they need to make key race-time decisions, while allowing their IT team to maintain complete control over confidential race data.
“The key goal is security,” explained Raffaele Boschetti, Scuderia Toro Rosso head of IT. “The new solution allows us to define different security policies for different users and even make sure the shared data is only accessible for a specified period of time. And since it’s fast and easy to use, our trackside engineers will be happy to use it and remain in full compliance with our corporate security policies.”
The recently released Acronis Backup 12.5 is the embodiment of the latest innovations in the world of data protection. The award-winning solution is dramatically faster than other backup solutions available on the market. With 15 second Recovery Time Objective (RTO), innovative Active Protection against ransomware, and support for more than 20 platforms — it makes all other traditional backup solutions obsolete.
It also presents a great opportunity for partners. The Standard and Advanced editions of the new Acronis Backup 12.5 make it easy for partners to sell the product and retain customers by offering easy in-place license upgrades, addressing the data protection challenges of companies of all sizes.
Acronis success with Acronis Backup 12 and Acronis Backup 12.5 has been overwhelming. With hundreds of new partners and a 40% increase in sales, this story is indicative of Acronis’ overall performance over the last 12 months.
