RackNap has announced an integration with Acronis to help MSSPs deliver data backup and recovery (BDR), file sync and share and anti-malware and anti-ransomware protection, according to a prepared statement.

With the integration, RackNap's MSSP partners can offer Acronis' cyber protection solutions through the RackNap platform, the companies stated. They also can "completely tailor their offerings, create flexible bundles, package offerings, add markups and quickly go to market," RackNap Chief Operating Officer Sabarinathan Sampath said.

What the RackNap-Acronis Integration Offers

The RackNap-Acronis integration provides order provisioning and service delivery process automation features, the companies indicated. In doing so, it helps MSSPs reduce the time and costs associated with managing vendors and configurations.

In addition, RackNap provides a customizable storefront or marketplace that is integrated with Acronis, the companies noted. That way, MSSPs can provide their customers with "the seamless experience of being able to purchase the entire service in an automated way without any hassles or complications," Sampath said.

Acronis Extends Global Reach, Unveils EDR Platform for MSPs

The RackNap integration comes after Acronis in March 2023 opened a new Cyber Cloud data center in Toronto, Canada. This data center further expands Acronis' global network of more than 50 data centers. It provides MSSPs, MSPs and other Acronis partners with access to its cyber protection solutions so they can offer new services and secure their customers' data, the company said.

Previously, Acronis in November 2022 released Acronis Advanced Security + EDR for Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud, an endpoint detection and response (EDR) platform for MSPs. The platform lets MSPs investigate, remediate, recover and close security gaps across the Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud solution, the company noted. It also offers machine learning-based event correlation and interpretation with attack chain visibility.

Acronis supports more than 16,000 service providers globally and provides them with 50-plus technology integrations. It also provides the #CyberFit Partner Program, which allows MSSPs, MSPs and other technology providers to use its solutions to develop and launch new cyber protection services.
