Acronis Backup

I actually think that it works great for most scenarios.

McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator

As quite a few of McAfee's products are owned within the organisation it made sense to review ePolicy Orchestrator. Once the decision was made to go with this product it brought together various data streams from otherwise standalone products and gave us a single view of where possible problems existed or where possible problems could exist.

Likelihood to Renew

Acronis Backup9.1
Based on 2 answers
We have renewed our subscription over the course of a few years now. We used to use Backup Exec and it was tedious and difficult to obtain our backups when needed. Acronis just fits our environment style and the way we prefer to do business and use our third party software.

Usability

Acronis Backup8.2
Based on 1 answer
I give it a rating of 9 do to its ease of usability. It's ease of understanding how to setup - form - fit - and function. I have no sorrows when having to login to the console in order to setup a new backup schedule or retrieve and recover lost data.

Support

Acronis Backup8.2
Based on 1 answer
We have only had to contact support a hand full of times. The reason for this 9 out of 10 is do to how quickly and cooperative they have been on the rare occasion we needed to chat with them about our small questions or queries with potential issues do to the nature of our business.

Implementation

Acronis Backup9.1
Based on 1 answer
I don't have any real key 'insights' per say except that it wasn't difficult at all, and do not be afraid to dabble in its tools and settings. It is quite intuitive with built in common sense. I cannot say enough good things about our companies experience when using this backup software.

Alternatives Considered

I think Acronis is better than Unitrends first because of one simple thing. Ease of use. Unitrends is a bear to use sometimes and getting one file can make you spend your whole day on it. Acronis is much more intuitive and easy to use when trying to locate a file or backup. It is quicker to do so as well.

Other products that were reviewed were Symantec's DLP and Forcepoint. The reason we ultimately went the ePolicy Orchestrator route was that we owned other McAfee products and the logic way to bring them together and to gain the maximum information was to bin them together with orchestrator, We also own AlienVault and we had to achieve various workarounds to get the information that was required from this and fed into orchestrator. Therefore is you are predominantly a McAfee shop this product will be the logical selection.

Scalability

Acronis Backup7.7
Based on 26 answers
The ability to back up multiple servers from one source is a great tool to have for businesses that have equipment in different locations on the same network with a variety of software data to back up such as SQL, Exchange or a Files Server. You can decide to purchase individual server licenses as well if you would like to keep the process separate or have multiple sites where your data is housed.
