Acronis, a global leader in cyber protection, announced today the acquisition of CyberLynx, a leading cybersecurity consultancy firm. This acquisition marks Acronis’ third in a year, continuing the company’s growth plan.
As a provider of security audits and proprietary training solutions, CyberLynx enjoys a customer presence built on technical expertise and strong connections with leading suppliers. This will advance Acronis’ mission to deliver world-class cyber protection to organisations.
“Acronis’ acquisition of CyberLynx shows its commitment to strengthening its expertise in cybersecurity,” comments Frank Dickson from IDC. “By providing integrated cybersecurity and data protection, Acronis reduces the complexity of implementing cybersecurity and improving IT.
