Today we are announcing the Acronis Cyber Platform #CyberFit Workload Bounty Program – an initiative centered on our commitment to provide developers, ISVs, service providers and OEMs programs that will drive greater cyber protection across more applications and systems. The Program aims to encourage organizations to develop and integrate the kind of native cyber protection solutions needed to meet the current explosion in data volumes and data sources.
Acronis Cyber Platform
First opened in April 2019, the Acronis Cyber Platform is the foundation of all Acronis Cyber Protection Solutions. We’ve continued opening and expanding the APIs and SDKs since the launch, and the platform has generated tremendous interest and kicked off numerous projects around the world. The Acronis Cyber Platform enables developers to integrate, customize and extend solutions to protect new data sources, add new data storage locations and implement new data management functionality with Acronis Cyber Protection Solutions.
Acronis has three APIs publicly available:
The Account Management API
The Files Sync & Share API
The Notary API
Acronis Data Source SDK
In response, we’ll be making the first version of the Acronis Data Source SDK available later this year in Q4. This will provide the ability to develop a wide array of cyber protection solutions, including backup and archives based on many data types. We want to support early adopters for that SDK as well as to gather feedback and requirements for these new workloads that need protection.
Acronis Cyber Platform #CyberFit Workload Bounty Program
Under the bounty program, all new solutions developed on the Acronis Cyber Platform will be considered for recognition. Examples might include a service that adds cyber protection to SaaS applications like Quickbooks or Zendesk or the addition of native cyber protection to popular ERP and HCM applications. The best solution will be selected in September 2020.
The chosen solution will receive:
An invitation for one person from the team to join and speak in a session and/or an expert panel at the Acronis Global Cyber Summit 2020.
The solution will be featured during the celebration party at the Acronis Global Cyber Summit.
If the solution is represented by a company, it can get a waiver of the Acronis #CyberFit Connected Partner program fee, valued at $4,500.
The benefits of Acronis #CyberFit Connected Partner include Tier-4 free professional support, free up to 1TB of Acronis Cloud Storage for internal usage, dedicated technical, business and marketing support.
The solution will be featured in the Acronis Developer and Corporate blogs.
