Scale Computing Provides Security Boost for Remote Work

Scale Computing, a provider of edge computing, virtualization, and hyperconverged solutions, is releasing Acronis SCS backup and disaster recovery solutions.

The integration of Scale Computing HC3 infrastructure with Acronis SCS backup software solutions is more critical in today’s world than ever before. As more and more organizations have adopted remote work policies in response to COVID-19, related cyberattacks have jumped 30%, and the number of ransomware attacks on public sector entities is back on the rise.

“Scale Computing already enjoys a strong presence in the public sector,” said Jeff Ready, CEO and co-founder, Scale Computing. “Now, by adding support for Acronis SCS and its best-of-breed ransomware protection and backup software, we are even better equipped to meet the security requirements and unique needs of a wide range of public sector organizations, including the most sensitive government environments -- something that has become even more critical today with the increase in ransomware and other cyberattacks.”

Seamless integration with Scale Computing’s HC3 infrastructure provides the unparalleled backup and cyber protection capabilities of Acronis SCS Cyber Backup and Acronis SCS Cyber Backup 12.5 Hardened Edition on a simple, scalable platform that many public sector organizations already use.

Built-in Active Protection against ransomware and unparalleled recovery flexibility ensure that, no matter the operating environment, public sector organizations’ critical systems remain operational and sensitive data stays safe.

Acronis SCS Cyber Backup 12.5 Hardened Edition, the company’s backup software for federal government and utilities, is purpose built to provide operational assurance to sensitive ‘no internet’ air gapped environments, including supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and industrial control systems, Department of Defense weapons testing sites, development labs, training simulators, deployed tactical elements, and more.

It is the only full-disk image backup and disaster recovery point solution available on the Department of Defense Information Network Approved Products List (DoDIN APL), is certified by Common Criteria, and is in process for FIPS 140-2 certification.
