Protecting mission critical assets & data doesn’t have to be difficult
Faced with threats of downtime from natural disasters, cyberattacks, hardware failure, or human error, America’s utility providers must keep mission critical systems up-and-running and data safe, no matter what. The partnership between Acronis SCS and Scale Computing makes that challenging job much easier.
By integrating Acronis SCS Cyber Backup 12.5 Hardened Edition with Scale Computing’s HC3 infrastructure, we provide access to the easy-to-use and security-minded approach your water, power, or other utility environment needs to thrive. The unparalleled backup and recovery flexibility of our FIPS 140-2, Common Criteria, and DoDIN APL-certified hardened backup software sits seamlessly on the HC3 infrastructure.
Using an appliance-based approach, Scale Computing’s HC3 platform brings storage, servers, virtualization and management together in a single, comprehensive system, lowering out-of-pocket costs and radically simplifying the infrastructure needed to keep your applications running – all while allowing you to scale seamlessly as your environment grows.
Acronis SCS and Scale Computing Combined
Backup for ICS and SCADA environments
Acronis SCS Cyber Backup 12.5 Hardened Edition is specifically designed with zero-connectivity, meaning our software will never make outbound calls or connections to online services. This secure-by-design approach meets the unique needs of water, power, and other utilities in charge of air-gapped environments, even those running legacy architecture or proprietary applications.
Unlike other backup tools on the market, our hardened solution is purpose built to provide both data and full critical asset protection, so the systems that keep our nation’s utilities running, like industrial control andSCADA systems, can failover and be seamlessly replicated, if needed.
Such functionality is helpful for managing day-to-day IT and cybersecurity maintenance, including applying patches and security updates. These updates, while necessary, can cause systems to reboot or crash. Acronis SCS Cyber Backup 12.5 Hardened Edition and its ability to quickly spin up full-disk images of assets on bare metal or dissimilar hardware makes such worries a thing of the past. The zero-connectivity design also empowers your IT administrators with actionable, real-time intelligence about the integrity of your network.
That peace of mind is paramount when America’s water, power, communications, transportation, and other critical utility services are on the line.
