Microsoft Active Directory Data Protection and Recovery Solutions
Acronis data protection offers flexible choices for your Microsoft Active Directory


Protecting Your Key User Authentication System

Microsoft Active Directory® is a database that stores all of your organization’s user accounts and passwords. If Active Directory malfunctions, your entire organization may stop functioning — including shared resources, email, SQL databases — which all depend on Active Directory.

Integration of Windows Servers and Mac

Acronis Files Connect
Solve file corruption, slow file searches, disconnects from file shares and other incompatibilities when accessing Windows file and print servers from a Mac.

If your organization is one of the estimated 80% of enterprises that have Mac users who need to work on files and documents in a mixed Mac-Windows environment, you know firsthand that Windows Servers and Macs communicate differently.

When Mac users try use Active Directory to access Windows file and print servers, they typically experience performance and data integrity problems, slow searches, and many other issues. This impacts your business in many ways as well.

Acronis Access Connect is the best file and print sharing solution for integrating Macs into a Windows Server infrastructure driven by Active Directory. It is an Apple Filing Protocol (AFP) file service that runs on your Windows server and lets Macs connect to file shares and NAS via AFP instead of the Server Messaging Block (SMB) protocol. This eliminates SMB protocol shortcomings, performance, and compatibility problems.

Acronis Access Connect allows you to:

  • Seamlessly integrate Macs into your Windows Server environment
  • Eliminate file compatibility problems and improve user satisfaction
  • Improve productivity with fast Spotlight search
