In a world full of cybercrime, natural disasters, and human error, a solid backup solution is table stakes for every MSP. It’s not a matter of if something will happen to your clients, it’s only a matter of when.
With the sunsetting of Syncro Backups in September, we know there’s been a gap for Syncro partners and we’ve been working hard to get another solution in place.
That’s why we’re now incredibly excited to announce the general availability of a new Syncro partnership with Acronis and their Cyber Backup solution.
Why we chose to partner with Acronis
Through this new partnership, you’ll be able to manage cloud and local backups (both image and file-based), Microsoft 365 backups (email, OneDrive), and Google Workspace backups (email, Google Drive).
This MSP backup solution is:
- Highly secure: Acronis backups offer military-grade encryption, SSAE-18 certified security, tier-IV designed data centers, and ransomware protection.
- Flexible: You can choose to back up individual files or entire systems across all devices and environments.
- Expandable: Acronis Cyber Backup can handle any workload size, so you’ll never hit a limit as you grow your client base.
Benefits of the Syncro partnership with Acronis
Buying Acronis Cyber Backup through Syncro brings a handful of advantages.
- No minimums: Spin up as many or as few licenses as you need. There’s no minimum spend.
- No contract terms: Just like with Syncro itself, all licensing for Acronis is month to month.
- Syncro scripting: We’ve added a few scripts to our script library that will help you deploy and monitor Acronis across your client base. More details in the scripting section below.
- Reseller pricing: We’ve negotiated advantageous pricing that will help you build healthy margins on your MSP backup services to clients. More details in the pricing section below.
