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.

For a stand-alone business this should do the trick, but if using across multiple clients (multi-tenancy not an option). Default settings within the program will cause performance issues if not tweaked, meaning someone with networking experience may be necessary. Not ideal for MSP's unless they only have a few clients, as the manageability must be done within "the walls" of each company.

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.

NortonLifeLock (formerly Symantec)
  • Cost could be an issue. They could perform a free trial at the beginning for people to check.
  • It would be good if you can do an online free check of your computer.
  • While the updates are good sometimes your computer is attacked by a virus they did not expect.

I did renew it before because support is great and cost is great. I believe that Norton has a very long experience in what they do and they are doing a great job with all the updates they provide and the work they are doing. Moreover Norton is going in the right direction for sure.

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.

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.

User-friendly interface (it's not just AV and users who were interacting with the product), performance, resource usage (most of the computers were not very fresh and that factor was very critical), efficiency, it shouldn't be just sitting on a PC - it should protect it, what was perfectly done with that product.

NortonLifeLock (formerly Symantec)
  • Poor performance against Spyware and other threats despite claiming to act against them (recognizes very few and eliminates less) It is limited to viruses.
  • Regular blocking of incoming scripts (in front of other antivirus)
  • Little or almost no compatibility with the Windows XP Firewall, but they are involved.
