Acronis Files Cloud: Built for MSPs by an MSP

Acronis Files Cloud is a new application within Data Cloud 7.5 which allows a user – mobile, remote or otherwise – to access files, sync and share safely in a secure hosted cloud solution. For an overview of this service and why you’ll want to sell it to your customers, this blog will highlight the key features and benefits of Files Cloud.

Key features

Yes, Acronis services do provide us with backup solutions in the event of a disaster. But, Files Cloud offers more. Let’s give you the run down…

As we said above, Files Cloud is a secure hosted cloud solution that enables workers to access files, sync and share safely. As more and more businesses invest in cloud services, more and more of our data and content is being shared in and via the Cloud.

As an example, pretty much everyone you know uses Microsoft cloud services, right? So, whether we are based in the office, based remotely or are mobile, we can access our favourite applications and important information from anywhere… However, this means that a cybercriminal with the right skills can as well.

This kind of remote syncing and sharing outside the secure business network leaves us increasingly vulnerable to cyber-attacks. So, Files Cloud now integrates with Microsoft Office native applications such as Word and Excel for maximum editing power and file control, hosted in a highly secure environment. Files Cloud offers the most comprehensive security for sharing data with others with over-the-air and on-device encryption.

What’s more, Files Cloud enables your customers to work with the content and data they need, on any device, be it a smartphone, tablet, laptop, PC or Mac. This means that no matter which devices your customers use, you and they both can rest assured knowing that Files Cloud will work. Any mobile devices, including the increasingly popular BYOD policy, are transformed into a secure and private business platform.

Key benefits for MSPs

As well as the many great benefits of keeping your and your customers’ data secure, we have to talk about the other benefits to you as an MSP.
