Acronis, the global leader in cyber protection, today unveiled the latest integration of its award-winning service provider solution, Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud, with Addigy, provider of the leading cloud-based Apple device management platform. This new release marks Acronis’ latest effort in empowering managed service providers (MSPs) to easily deploy and deliver the company’s single-agent cyber protection solution across macOS/iOS systems ensuring greater data security and ease of management for today’s evolving business environments.
Adoption of macOS in the workplace continues to rise, with at least 55% of all small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) encouraging or allowing their use. This trend means that MSPs must adopt solutions that enable them to identify, monitor, and secure sensitive data on such devices. With the release of this integration, MSPs can deploy and monitor Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud’s full range of backup and cybersecurity capabilities from within the Addigy RMM interface.
“Today’s SMBs are more likely than ever to rely on macOS systems a trend that has only accelerated with the recent shift to remote-first work and an increase in bring-your-own-device practices,” said Jan-Jaap “JJ” Jager, Board Advisor and Chief Revenue Officer at Acronis. “Cybercriminals are already reacting to this shifting landscape and ramping up their attacks against Apple devices. This new integration with Addigy supports MSPs with the delivery of unparalleled cyber protection across clients’ IT environments, all through the platform they already know and trust.”
Combining Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud with Addigy’s device management platform, not only strengthens the protection of backups and security of environments with macOS workloads, but also simplifies Apple device management by allowing IT admins to apply sophisticated protection plans, configure and enforce policies for Apple devices, and monitor and remediate from a single interface.
“Addigy's integration with one of the top data protection and cybersecurity powerhouses in the market today is a critical step in ensuring we give our customers all the tools they need to effectively secure Apple devices,” said Jason Dettbarn, founder and CEO of Addigy. “We’re thrilled about partnering with Acronis and look forward to adding more integrations to our platform to meet the ever-evolving needs of our customers.”
Data availability and integrity are already vital to SMBs’ health, and the need for effective cyber protection across all systems and backups is only growing. Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud enables the consistent application of cyber protection services across entire organizations, with cross-platform management through a single pane of glass for streamlined efficiency.
In using Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud and Addigy together, MSPs stand to benefit from capabilities such as:
• Simple configuration Leverage standard macOS enrollment and configuration policies. A special script enables automatic download of the latest Acronis installer as appropriate for the macOS architecture and operating system in question.
• Remote installation of the protection agent Once configuration is done, simply deploy Acronis’ cyber protection agent from one centralized location. Protection supports both Intel and M1 devices.
• Application of protection plans on a client level Unleash the power of cyber protection to strengthen your clients’ security posture and resilience, as well as your own. Set a default protection plan for all macOS devices under your Addigy account, or define specific ones for individual clients.
