At this year’s exciting knowledge-sharing event, Acronis welcomes insightful speakers
Coming out of #CyberFit Summit 2022, Acronis, the global leader in Cyber Protection, is now ready and poised for exciting developments in cybersecurity in the new year.
In front of a distinguished audience of more than 1,000 attendees, 50 journalists (including a special media invite for www.logisticsgulfnews.com) and 100 speakers, Acronis unveiled the upcoming releases of Acronis Advanced Automation and Acronis Advanced Security + EDR, and announced the promotion of the newest member of the C-suite, Katya Ivanova as Chief Sales Officer.
Through superstar keynotes, expert panels, and hands-on workshops, MSPs (Managed Service Providers) and IT professionals were left with deeper insights into the threat landscape, new business-building tips and a path to accelerate growth while securing customer loyalty.
Acronis CEO Patrick Pulvermueller kicked off the three-day event in Miami Beach, Florida, USA with his keynote. He opened with staggering statistics illustrating the enormity of data today. There are currently 10 million physical servers on Earth, and data creation has increased 90-fold since 2010.
To protect this sheer enormity of data, consolidation and simplification are the future. Pulvermueller tied in the tagline of #CyberFit Summit, cyber protect the future, and emphasized Acronis’ unwavering focus on partner success, innovation and simplification. “The continuous rise of cyber protection the defining moment of our industry,” affirmed Pulvermueller. “During our #CyberFit Summit, we were thrilled to share our vision for Acronis and how cyber protection will evolve in the year ahead. At Acronis, we’re continuing to set our partners and customers up for success,” he continued.
In multiple sessions at the Acronis #CyberFit Summit in Miami, cybersecurity analysts and experts provided an inside look at how cyberattacks attacks work, how MSPs are impacted and how Acronis Cyber Protection Solutions prevent them.
Other notable keynotes from the event included former FBI Director, Judge Louis Freeh talking about his experience with the mafia and ransomware; basketball legend and serial entrepreneur, Earvin ‘Magic’ Johnson, giving an inspirational speech on how he has parlayed the skills and tenacity acquired on the court into a winning formula for his successful business ventures.
Furthermore, Acronis founder and Chief Research Officer Serg Bell’s discussion about expanding the future of MSPs; and the #CyberWomen keynote, where several influential women speculated on the bright future for women in the cyber field.
#CyberFit Summit sponsors Silvereye Technologies and Galactic Advisors were thrilled to be part of the event. “A decade ago, excellent cybersecurity and data protection was a luxury. Now that ransom payments are skyrocketing, companies are suffering huge hits, not only financially but also to their reputation. Cybersecurity is now a necessity,” observed Jennifer Pierce at Galactic Advisors.
“Events like #CyberFit Summit are an excellent opportunity to share knowledge and position our partners to make a significant positive impact in their communities around the world,” she added.
“The Acronis Platform is a cornerstone for cybersecurity. The Acronis Summit combines a wide range of technologies, industry leaders and strategists together for what Silvereye views as the most important event of the year,” noted Cameron May, Chief Strategist, Silvereye Technologies.
MSPs, CISOs (Chief Information Security Officers), CIOs (Chief Information Officer) and architects left the eminently successful #CyberFit Summit laden with great new ideas and excitement for the Acronis developments to come in early 2023. Now, that’s #CyberFit, a company press communique concluded.
