Axcient Launches Direct-to-Cloud for x360Recover

One Solution for BDR with Endpoint Backup, Completely Cloud-Based

DENVER, CO (October 13, 2020) — Axcient, a leader in business availability software for Managed Service Providers (MSPs), announced Direct-to-Cloud. Axcient Direct-to-Cloud is the next evolution in Backup and Disaster Recovery (BDR) software. Now MSPs can protect their clients using one solution for no-hardware BDR, workstation or endpoint backup, and traditional BDR. This level of flexibility, security, and simplification allows MSPs to support a hybrid on-premise, cloud, and remote work environment across a diverse set of client requirements in one product.

“The way we work will never be the same again because companies and employees are embracing the ‘work from anywhere’ model, necessitating a shift in business operations and security,” said David Bennett, CEO at Axcient. “To help our partners Protect Everything™ for clients working remotely, we created Axcient Direct-to-Cloud. Direct-to-Cloud backup is the last line of defense against phishing and ransomware using a layered security best practice. Axcient Direct-to-Cloud helps realize our vision to Cure Data Loss and reduce MSP Total Cost of Managed Services (TCMS).”

Overnight the number of employees working remotely has jumped from seven percent to fifty-one percent. MSPs need a flexible BDR solution to meet diverse client requirements and keep costs down. Axcient x360Recover meets that requirement.

Axcient x360Recover now satisfies three important use cases for MSPs and their clients:

  • Hardware BDR for clients who need instant local recovery and virtualization
  • No-Hardware or Direct-to-Cloud BDR for cloud backup instant cloud virtualization
  • Image-based Endpoint Backup to the cloud for remote workstations

With Direct-to-Cloud, Axcient provides MSPs with the power to choose if they want to deploy x360Recover using no hardware, Axcient hardware, or hardware from the MSP. In addition, MSPs can use Axcient Data Centers or their own Data Centers for cloud backup, or both.

“As an existing Axcient x360Recover Partner, we’re excited about the new Direct-to-Cloud functionality,” said Rick Porter, President at Cinch I.T. “We can now offer No-Hardware BDR and remote worker Endpoint Backup in addition to our traditional BDR offering. Our ability to standardize on the Axcient x360 platform for BDR, No-Hardware BDR, Endpoint Backup, and SaaS Protection for Microsoft 365 and G Suite really simplifies life for our techs and our support teams. As we on-board new clients, right away we can remotely install Axcient Direct-to-Cloud and start the seeding process, and then always deploy a local appliance later if required. It’s a game changer.”

  • 15-minute RPO using Chain-Free and 1-hour RTO
