Dataquest Group partners with Acronis to deliver ‘unrivalled’ data protection

Dataquest Group has signed a deal with Acronis, offering the most effective ways to store, protect and defend data from ransomware attacks.

Dataquest provides a comprehensive range of technology services, ranging from managed print to Cloud solutions and is recognised as one of the UK’s fastest growing hybrid Cloud solutions providers, delivering a single vendor approach to help make life easier for all of its clients.

Chris Baker, Cloud Business Development Manager at Dataquest, commented: “Acronis delivers an integrated suite of data protection solutions, including backup, disaster recovery and storage, together with file sync and share, which will serve our clients well in these challenging times.

“To face the challenge presented by increasing security threats, Dataquest was seeking a simplified product that offered our clients the best protection, from a single, easy to manage source. Acronis and its range of innovative products was the ideal choice for partner.

“A significant problem faced by organisations when addressing cybersecurity concerns is one of complexity. Trying to integrate solutions from a variety of vendors creates unnecessary complexity and there can be issues when the overlap of solutions is not complete.

“Acronis is that rare solution that integrates data protection, cybersecurity and endpoint management into a single solution, with simplified backup and disaster recovery of critical data, to improve recovery times, while reducing management complexity and total cost of ownership.

“As a business, we must provide our clients with technology solutions that adapt and evolve with the threats as they emerge, with the flexibility to be managed by the client themselves, by our dedicated team or by a combination of the two. And now that’s not only possible, but simple.”

Common use-cases for Acronis Cyber Protect, in addition to normal backup and recovery, include auto-response to emerging threats, real-time (CDP) protection of important documents, zero-day malware and ransomware protection and recovery, together with compliance and forensic analysis.

An Acronis spokesperson explains: “Focusing only on prevention is risky. Preventing attacks is the goal for all organisations, but it is critical they also have the tools to ensure rapid, complete and certain data recovery.

“We believe Acronis is at the forefront of integrated data protection and cyber protection. Partnering with experienced Cloud solutions providers like Dataquest ensures more organisations will benefit from the most comprehensive integrated solution to provide data protection and cyber security, in an increasingly dangerous digital world.”

Baker concludes: “Disconnected point-product deployments place IT staff under pressure to assure that any gaps that exist between anti-malware software, backup software, analytic software, etc., cannot be exploited by a new generation of sophisticated hackers. A single source is the answer.”
