A Gap in the Backup Market
In today’s backup and recovery software market, there is a troubling gap for public sector customers operating in air-gapped, ‘no internet’ environments. In particularly challenging settings, like deployed defense elements at the edge or those with sensitive or classified information, Acronis SCS’s forthcoming hardened backup product fills that gap.
What Sets Our Hardened Product Apart?
Acronis SCS’s hardened product, slated for release later this year, is the first and only backup solution of its kind. It is specifically designed to operate in air-gapped environments, where data is crucial for carrying out the mission but access to outside networks is either limited or unavailable altogether.

Four key elements set our solution apart from today’s backup tools:
- Zero-Connectivity. The Acronis SCS hardened backup product requires zero integration or outbound connections to online services in order to function. That means no kill switches or callbacks for activation, licensing, or anything else. Our licenses are only validated locally. This is critical from both a security and a usability perspective. Our product radically reduces an air-gapped environment’s attack surface and minimizes the time IT staff will spend wading through the false alerts and failed outbound communication attempts generated by non-hardened backup products.
- Encryption. Our hardened product incorporates Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 validated encryption and RSA key generation. It also utilizes the Intel-pioneered, hardware-based random number generation method to ensure our encryption is seeded with maximum entropy.
- Security. Our hardened product has undergone extensive penetration testing by third-party security “red teams,” as well as our own internal security testing.In addition, users of our hardened product will enjoy the same level of Active Protection against ransomware attacks already available with Acronis SCS Backup 12.5, our non-hardened solution. They will also have the flexibility to perform local backups at various levels and to various locations, leaving them virtually impervious to loss from ransomware or other cyberattacks.And with responsive, US-based support available for all our products, our customers can rest assured any questions and concerns will be handled in the most secure and efficient manner.
- Certification. We are in process for both FIPS and Department of Defense Information Network Approved Products List (DoDIN APL) certification, and we are on schedule with our Common Criteria evaluation per Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP) guidelines.
Why Certification Matters
FIPS certification verifies our backup communication and archives are protected with military-grade encryption and have been reviewed and tested by government labs for use in environments that contain sensitive information.
DoDIN APL certification ensures our product is recognized as a military/DoD lab-tested and trusted solution for purchase within the Department of Defense. Once this process is complete, Acronis SCS will be the only backup software vendor on the DoDIN APL.
Common Criteria certification provides assurance to customers that the process of specification, implementation, and evaluation of our hardened product was conducted in a thorough and standard manner. These standards, which satisfy information assurance and supply chain requirements in the United States, were developed by the National Information Assurance Partnership, are managed by the National Security Agency, and are accepted by more than thirty countries.
We are confident no other backup solution on the market has gone through the same level of security scrutiny, supply chain vetting, and outside certification our hardened product has and continues to undergo.
