Acronis SCS Software

Acronis SCS’ backup & disaster recovery and cyber protection solutions available for purchase by participating public sector organizations

Texas-based technology solutions provider Future Com has added Acronis SCS, an American cyber protection and edge data security company, as a partner vendor on its contract with The Interlocal Purchasing System (TIPS). Initially created in 2002 to help education institutions in the Texas region more easily procure solutions through a pre-vetted list of vendors, TIPS has since expanded its reach to serve public sector organizations across the nation.

In adding Acronis SCS to its TIPS contract, Future Com provides its customers access to a suite of innovative cyber protection solutions tailored to meet the US public sector’s unique security and usability requirements. Two such offerings, Acronis SCS Cyber Backup and Acronis SCS Cyber Backup 12.5 Hardened Edition, are the sole backup and disaster recovery solutions available on the contract. “Incorporating Acronis SCS into our TIPS contract has strengthened our customers’ ability to stay safe and resilient, even as they navigate an increasingly complex cyber threat landscape,” Future Com CEO Doug Hollenshead said.

We’re looking forward to exploring even more opportunities for partnership and collaboration moving forward.”
