Acronis for Education and Research Institutions
protect critical information, research data, and safely migrate content to other systems


Education and Research institutions need to preserve their data and enable students and faculty to easily access and share data with both internal and external colleagues. If any data is lost or compromised, it can interrupt your institution's business, damage the brand, and put the institution out of compliance with a variety of regulations and funding mandates - all which can result in financial losses.

Acronis delivers easy, complete, and safe solutions to protect your data and manage safe and secure access. With Acronis, your students, faculty, and administrative staff can always find the data they need, when they need it, from any location, using any device they choose.

Acronis products are easy to install, configure, and manage, requiring virtually zero training.

Powered by the Acronis AnyData Engine, you can deploy individual solutions to support backup and secure access for a specific department or academic unit, or seamlessly blend them together into one efficient backup solution to support multiple departments, academic units or all institution data.

Acronis products ensure that your data is secure and protected from user errors, hardware failures, security breaches, viruses, loss or theft of devices, natural disasters, and any issues with software or hardware updates. Acronis products also encrypt data in transit and at rest to ensure privacy and security.
