Acronis and ID Quantique Announces Joint Collaboration

Acronis and ID Quantique announced a joint collaboration to help protect companies from future security threats related to advances in decryption techniques and the arrival of quantum computing. Acronis will work with ID Quantique to bring quantum-safe encryption capabilities to Acronis cloud solutions - an industry first for a cloud data protection solution provider. The capabilities will help companies protect the increasing amount of data that is outside of the company firewall and on multiple mobile devices, while also preventing unauthorised users - including hackers and cyber thieves - from accessing Acronis customer data under protection both in transit and in the cloud. As more companies use the cloud to backup, restore and recover their data, ensuring data privacy and data security is a requirement for adoption. In fact, many IT managers and security professionals still have serious concerns about data security and privacy in the cloud. A recent survey by the Cloud Security Alliance found that 73% of IT professionals said concerns about the security of data are a top challenge holding back cloud adoption. At the same time, today's security technologies are not keeping up with the sophistication of modern-day hackers, as well as advanced technologies, such as quantum computing. The US National Security Agency recently advised US agencies and businesses that all e-mail, medical and financial records, and online transactions, will soon be vulnerable to quantum computing technology threats, and that today's encryption technologies will not protect them in the future. As a result, the NSA has announced plans to move to quantum-resistant algorithms for greater protection in the future. Bringing Quantum Encryption to Cloud Data Protection: Acronis is focused on providing companies with complete data protection through an integrated set of solutions, including backup, disaster recovery and file sync and share. Acronis believes in complete data protection - particularly for access and storage. This not only requires the most advanced data safety, but also data security to protect companies from outside threats, and data privacy to ensure that companies stay in control of their data at all times - in transit, in the cloud and on mobile devices. Acronis and ID Quantique will leverage quantum-safe encryption to provide the following increased security capabilities to Acronis cloud data protection solutions: Quantum-resistant encryption - ensures Acronis cloud data protection customers are safe from future cyber security threats and vulnerabilities with the most advanced encryption technology for data transfers to and from Acronis data centres. Quantum key distribution - also known as quantum cryptography, provides future-proof security for the backbone network that links Acronis' worldwide data centres. Quantum random number generators - produces high-quality, high-entropy, and highly secure keys for users to help prevent unauthorised access of data under Acronis protection.
