Acronis showcased a demo of its new Advanced DLP for Cyber Protect Cloud at the the RSA Conference is San Francisco last week.
Describing it as “a game-changing solution that shields managed service providers (MSPs) and businesses of all sizes from data leakage” the company believes its ISP is that the solution does not require months for deployment or highly-skilled teams to maintain it.
In a press statement Acronis said: “Drawing from decades-long experience enabling MSPs in data protection, this expansion resolves the main obstacles hindering the broader adoption of DLP solutions: grueling roll-out and cumbersome ongoing administrative execution.
“For years, organizations have struggled to protect sensitive data from unauthorized access via external attacks or insider risks such as IT misconfigurations and human error. Only a handful of large enterprises had the resources to manage the overall complexity, high deployment costs, and more significant obstacles that come with DLP adoption.”
It refers to a Global Industry Analysts Inc. report that forecasts the global DLP market size is set to exceed US$6 billion by 2026.
According to the 2021 Gartner Market Guide for Data Loss Prevention: “Small and midsize organizations often struggle to implement and operate DLP tools. Consulting and managed DLP services can offer a path to value in terms of managing tools, but they cannot replace internal data knowledge and ownership of risk by business units.”
“Across the clients we work with daily, fear of their financial records or customer data appearing on Google search keeps them up at night. It keeps us up, too,” said Lawrence Troemel, President of NobleTec. “We want to help them close the gap, but it’s really tough to cost-effectively succeed within short time frames – especially when a new customer comes to us after a major breach.”
Acronis Advanced DLP
The integration of behavioral-based DLP capabilities into the Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud platform is what extends its ability to deliver unified data protection, cybersecurity and management across systems, data and workloads regardless of their location. It offers an unparalleled range of cyber protection capabilities that span the NIST cybersecurity framework from Identification to Recovery to ensure business continuity in the face of cybercriminals, insider risk threats or technology failure.
The Early Access version of Acronis Advanced DLP:
With a single platform and agent enabling this highly accessible form of DLP, both MSPs and businesses will benefit from faster, easier deployment and time-to-value, while avoiding all the most common threats to data. These same benefits can be accrued by larger organizations needing immediate protection while evaluating more complex and sophisticated DLP programs with multi-year implementation cycles. “The application of policies and parameters is fast, even the interface for the end user is friendly regarding alerts and exceptions,” said Rafael M Acuña Giraldo, Information Security Specialist and IT Support Coordinator at Info Comunicaciones S.A.S.
