5 Reasons You Should Attend #AcronisCyberSummit 2020

It seems like everyone has a conference nowadays, but if you’ve been to as many IT conferences as we have you’ll know that not all of them are built the same. That’s why it’s worth noting when one really stands out as a can’t miss event. The Acronis Global Cyber Summit is definitely doing that this year.

Curious why? We took an in-depth look at the upcoming virtual event (October 19-21) to understand just what attendees can look forward to and found a lot to recommend the Summit. Here are the top five reasons anyone in the IT community should be registering today and blocking off their calendar.

1. The Emergence of Cyber Protection

Acronis is the leader in cyber protection – a rapidly emerging category in the IT community that integrates data protection and cybersecurity to deliver the best of both worlds through one solution. As this category has gained traction the industry has definitely started to take notice. IDC recommended cyber protection as a key to modern IT transformation strategies. Gartner called Acronis a visionary in the 2020 Magic Quadrant. AV-Test found that their cybersecurity capabilities detected 100% of their threats and gave zero false alarms.
Put simply, cyber protection is poised to be big in the IT community and Acronis are on the forefront of that movement.

2. Value for Everyone

While there’s a clear focus on the IT Channel at the Acronis Global Cyber Summit, there’s a ton of material designed to educate, interest, and support all of the audiences that will be drawn to the event including more than 30 sessions and four distinct conference tracks:

– IT Channel Biz Track: Modernize Your Strategies and Services for the Cloud Age
– Enterprise: Simplify and Modernize Your Data Protection
– Developers and ISVs Track: Leverage the Power of a Platform: Automation and Integration Opportunities with Acronis
– Sales and Marketing Pro Track: Learn and Activate Modern B2B Marketing Techniques to Gain New Customers

That’s right, even sales and marketing teams have sessions dedicated to them. That alone separated this show from the crowd.

3. The Speaker Lineup

Speaking of having something for everyone, the speakers at Acronis’ Summit cover a really impressive array of perspectives and industries.
Working in the Channel? You’ll be excited to see big names in managed services like Karl W. Palachuk, Amy Luby, and Erick Simpson. Really focused on cybersecurity at the moment? René Bonvanie and Sir Julian King are both delivering keynote addresses. Want your tech perspective from analysts you can count on to be unbiased? Join Frank Dickson from IDC and Jay McBain from Forrester.
Whatever your focus, there’s a wealth of expertise featured at this event meaning that there’s bound to be a ton of new findings, insights, and advice to help your team expand right away.

4. Save on Certifications

Acronis’ Cyber Protection Solutions are unique compared to a lot of other solutions that service providers sell. That makes knowing how to effectively sell and support them valuable for any organization looking to grow with cyber protection.
Acronis offers training and certification programs to help highlight these differences and give IT and sales pros a leg-up on the process. At the Acronis Global Cyber Summit, the first day is almost entirely dedicated to these trainings and registrants can look forward to up to a $1,000 value since the training courses during the Summit are absolutely free to join.
