Acronis
Overall we are happy with what Acronis is offering us, both as a use and a Value Add Resellers. The fact that there is one portal to onboard customers and select services is exactly what we were looking for. Now we are working on the Multi Tenant version, so we can also White Label Acronis towards our customerbase. We have not yet found any scenario's where Acronis can not offer any benefits. We do hear that the pricing for the storage is often to high versus competition. This applies to the Acronis data center storage, yet also the structure of Workload/per TB combination towards other Cloud vendors. (mainly the 3 largest Hyper Scalers) Compared to other Cloud storage solutions, these cost should be lower, so it will be easier to explain to customers to come and join Acronis in the cloud, instead of doing local back-ups or use solutions like DropBox, BackBlaze, PureStorage, Wasabo Hot Cloud Storage, Cloudian and more.

It just works. I have seen multiple viruses and malware get past other antivirus software like TrendMicro, Webroot, and Kaspersky. Bitdefender GravityZone always catches what others miss. It has a very light footprint when it comes to system resources. The centralized management console is nice, but I prefer the console before they redesigned the UI.

Bitdefender
  • Once installed, Bitdefender [GravityZone] runs silently in the background with little to no need for user interaction.
  • The cloud-based console provides for easy computer management and deployment.
  • Bitdefender [GravityZone] is extremely flexible, with a policy-based system wherein different profiles can be created (i.e. a policy to deactivate the firewall, a policy to allow for admin control on a machine, etc.) and pushed out to individual computers.
  • Computers can be grouped into different categories, with different policies automatically deployed to each category.
  • Bitdefender [GravityZone] is relatively resource-light and runs well even on lower-end computers.

Cons
Acronis
  • Better reports with important security information for analyze.
  • The ability to monitor resources like CPU, memory, disks and network activity, and availability.
  • The ability to monitor user activity, very important today because of home working.
  • Endpoint security for IOs and Android, better if it can be an MDM.

  • Who do I ask? This is my chief complaint is once the initial licenses were purchased through Bit Defender, there was no one to contact that could help navigate some of the initial questions I had with regard to specific policies to implement for our file server. The parent web site is, well, hard to navigate when one is trying to "learn" the system.
  • The second issue is in increasing the licenses. It took several days for the parent company (by contact and phone) to inform me that they could not increase the licenses and I would have to go through a private vendor. There was no intent to connect me to a vendor or provide a vendor list until I asked specifically. YET I continue to get email from the parent company reminding me to pay an annual fee for the licenses purchase through the private vendor. The parent company can see the number of licenses yet did not sell them to me.
  • Gravity Zone Dashboard, while excellent for those who have experience, is not particularly intuitive for those who have never used it. There does not seem to be a lot of documentation for those responsible for implementation.

The Cyber Protect portal is very intuitive and easy to use for anyone with some knowledge of IT systems.

The console is easy to use, but has grown to have a lot of functionality. The only challenge is that all functions (even disabled and not installed ones) are shown. It would be great if only the functions that are active would be visible.

Support is an area Bitdefender has always struggled with. While their products work great, the GravityZone dashboard is very technical in nature. If you aren't IT inclined, it could be difficult to setup. While most times support is helpful, we tend to work with them over email because of their very thick accent, they are hard to understand over the phone.

An organization might choose Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud over Barracuda Cloud-to-Cloud Backup for several reasons: Comprehensive Protection: Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud offers a more comprehensive solution that covers data protection, cybersecurity, and disaster recovery. If an organization requires an all-in-one solution to manage both backup and security, Acronis is a better fit. Diverse IT Environment: If a business operates in a diverse IT environment that includes physical, virtual, and cloud components, Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud's broad platform support makes it more suitable. Enhanced Cybersecurity: Organizations that prioritize advanced cybersecurity features and AI-driven threat detection capabilities might find Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud a more robust solution in this regard.

We were a Kaspersky shop for years. Kaspersky was a resource hog and it didn't even block half of what was thrown at it. We had more outbreaks and more end-user complaints in a year of Kaspersky then we have had in almost three years of Bitdefender.

Bitdefender
  • The ROI for Bitdefender is hard to quantify except that it requires very little maintenance time from our staff.
  • We've spent no time troubleshooting user complaints or issues from users, so it has been a big time-saver over our previously used anti-malware software.
  • Bitdefender's customer service is usually pretty good and also very responsive, so I don't have to wait by the phone or to keep checking email to resolve a problem--although our issues have been mostly informational and not a problem with functionality.
