Acronis, a global leader in new generation data protection, today announced that it will participate in this year’s 35th anniversary edition of GITEX, which is taking place from October 18th to 22nd at the Dubai World Trade Center. At booth MAC 6-6A in hall 6, Acronis will present the industry’s most complete data protection platform with exciting demos on the latest Acronis cloud solutions, including backup, disaster recovery, and secure file sync and share.


Acronis delivers businesses of all sizes a broad set of data protection solutions for both on-premise and cloud deployments. The Acronis Cloud Platform delivers complete backup, disaster recovery, and secure file sync and share services. Fueled by over 50 patents, the platform  is powered by the Acronis AnyData Engine – a set of unique, deep, and powerful new generation data protection technologies that capture, store, recover, control, and access any data.

Here’s an overview about the showcased solution highlights at GITEX:

  • Acronis Backup Cloud equips service providers to quickly solve customers’ data protection needs with a proven comprehensive local and cloud backup and recovery service. Service providers get a customizable, comprehensive, and reliable service for their partners and customers. This solution has zero entry costs and a per-use business model designed for growth. Acronis Backup Cloud backs up data from any source, stores data locally, in a private cloud, in a third-party cloud, or in the Acronis Cloud, and allows recovery to any destination and system.
  • Acronis Disaster Recovery Service is a complete IT business continuity solution that backs up systems into an on-site appliance and replicates it to an Acronis cloud data centre, and recovers and restarts systems during an outage within a guaranteed SLA. Designed for organisations that have a low tolerance for the unavailability of IT services, Acronis Disaster Recovery Service can reliably recover and run servers or entire data centres without the need for your organisation to invest in duplicate systems or additional staff, until the original environment is available. Providing cold, warm, or hot recovery options, Acronis Disaster Recovery Service combines the high performance and shortest recovery time of a local appliance with the low cost, predictability, and accessibility of a virtual, private, off-site cloud.
  • Acronis Files Cloud enables service providers to deliver a secure file sync and share (FSS) solution that supports office and mobile workers with safe file access, sync, and share (FSS) in an easy-to-use and secure cloud service. Unlike consumer-grade solutions including Box, Dropbox, and less secure FSS products, Acronis Files Cloud provides the ability to store documents and business files in a private cloud, while offering comprehensive security and controls – including encryption, audit trails, and user management.
  • Acronis Access Advanced is an easy, complete, and secure file access, sync, and share solution, providing IT with complete control over business content to ensure security, maintain compliance, and enable BYOD. With Acronis Access Advanced, employees can use any mobile device, PC, or Mac computer to securely access and share corporate files with other employees, customers, partners, and vendors.

Guurprit Ahuja, Director – Middle East & Africa, Acronis, said: “The Middle East is a vital market for data protection and Acronis has made significant investments in the region to further strengthen our presence here, including bringing on new partners to help service the local market. GITEX Technology Week serves as the perfect platform for us to showcase our best-of-breed solutions and engage with local businesses, organizations and experts to discuss the latest innovations in data protection, including cloud services. ”
