Protecting Mobile Devices with Advanced Data Safety, Security and Privacy
Acronis is focused on providing companies with complete data protection through an integrated set of solutions, including backup, disaster recovery and file sync & share. Acronis believes that complete data protection not only requires the most advanced data safety, but also data security to protect companies from outside threats, and data privacy to ensure that they stay in control of their data at all times – in transit, on mobile devices and in the cloud. To achieve this, Acronis leverages a highly flexible and open architecture that supports easy integration with leading 3rd party solutions, the latest global encryption standards including AES256, and private and secure search.
Check Point protects companies from cyberattacks by leveraging a complete security architecture that defends against threats to an enterprise’s network and out to mobile devices. Check Point Capsule provides seamless security to protect business data, establish a secure business environment on mobile devices, and secure business documents, devices, and networks.
By pairing Acronis Access Advanced with Check Point Capsule remote users are granted secure access to all corporate content on mobile devices with shared file repositories transparently synchronized, ensuring that users are able to seamlessly extend their work spaces to their devices while remaining secure at all times. The seamless integration of Acronis Access Advanced with Check Point Capsule Docs ensures that all documents are encrypted and accessible only to authorized personnel. Enterprises also have a full audit trail of who accesses what document and when.
Leveraging the strong global presence of both companies, including the Check Point R&D center in Israel and the new Acronis R&D in Singapore that focuses on security, Acronis and Check Point are able to support the most advanced security standards available today and are well positioned to meet the unique security needs of companies worldwide.
