exposed to malware attacks that were still getting through prior to the deployment of Acronis Cyber
Protect.
The Acronis report reveals that hackers targeting remote workers, phishing, distributed denial of service
(DDoS), and videoconferencing attacks are the most common. 39% of companies have encountered
videoconferencing attacks as workers rely on apps like Zoom, Cisco Webex, and Microsoft Teams. Cisco
recently revealed a vulnerability in its Webex app that could allow attackers to open, read and steal
potentially valuable or damaging content.
“Acronis Cyber Protect prevented code execution exploits in Webex before it was patched by Cisco,” Mr
Beloussov said.
He said that Acronis Cyber Protect replaces the multitude of solutions that businesses are currently using
into a single solution. Currrently the product is preventing an estimated $150 million in direct losses for
customers each year.
Candid Wüest, Vice President of Cyber Protection Research at Acronis, cautioned IT teams and service
providers should “make no mistake. Attackers already know where the interesting data is and they are
prepared to strike into the cloud and strike into those new services.” As a result cybersecurity, data
protection, and endpoint protection management capabilities need to be integrated to deliver the
security needed in this new digital world.

●The Acronis #CyberFit Academy – A new training and certification program designed to deliver
