Cybersecurity is a significant concern for the over 90,0001 public sector agencies totaling millions of endpoints. Everything from hospitals and schools to utilities and government services runs on increasingly complex and interconnected networks of devices. Any downtime or data loss—whether it be the result of a malicious cyberattack, hardware failure, or human error—could spell disaster. MSPs are uniquely suited to provide top security, reduced costs, and decreased stress to the US public sector. Still, they must offer the right certified cyber protection product that integrates cybersecurity and data protection in one nice, easy-to-manage solution.

“Acronis SCS has gone to great lengths to certify and vet our products, so MSPs don’t have to,” stated John Zanni, CEO of Acronis SCS. “We provide world-class US-based support that increases operational efficiency and allows MSPs to focus on what they do best, providing superior solutions to those who need them most.”

Highlighting just how easy it is to scale public sector business with Acronis SCS, the Summit will feature leading experts from F1, UbiStor, and more who will share their experience navigating public sector security and sales.
