Acronis SCS

Further bolsters solution’s suitability for sensitive federal government and utility environments

Acronis SCS, an American cyber protection and edge data security company serving the US public sector, announced Acronis SCS Cyber Backup 12.5 Hardened Edition is now officially Common Criteria-certified under server and agent protection profiles. In earning validation from the National Information Assurance Partnership, the Arizona-based company provides added assurance to customers that evaluation of its backup software for federal government and utilities was performed in a thorough, consistent, and comprehensive manner.

Common Criteria is an international methodology for evaluating a product’s security features. In addition to ensuring Acronis SCS’ hardened solution satisfies US information assurance and supply chain requirements, Common Criteria is accepted by more than thirty countries.

The hardened full-disk image backup and disaster recovery software provide complete asset protection for air-gapped, ‘no internet’ systems within America’s most sensitive critical infrastructure and federal government environments, including supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and industrial control systems, weapons testing sites, development labs, and more.
