Cyber security solutions company Acronis has announced the opening of its new office in Tempe, Arizona. The new location would feature a cutting-edge research and development (R&D) office, as well as Acronis’ largest and fastest growing data center operations space. Fully staffed, this office in Tempe will employ 150 new engineering, sales, professional services, and support personnel.
Over the next three years, Acronis will invest $50 million dollars in research and development efforts at the new Tempe facility. This would help fuel innovative advances in blockchain, machine learning, and artificial intelligence-based cyber protection – as well as “unique” consulting services for the custom development and deployment of security and artificial intelligence solutions. All of Acronis’ new initiatives in Tempe will be supported by engineering talent recruited locally in Arizona.
Acronis engineers in the new office will also support the continuing development of SDKs for the Acronis Cyber Platform, which provides third-party vendors an “easy” way to customize, extend and integrate Acronis technology with their solutions. The work conducted at the new Tempe office would allow Acronis to build stronger partnerships with North American cloud providers, software vendors, telecoms, and managed service providers (MSPs).
Machine Learning-based Ransomware Defense
“Arizona is North America’s hub for data center operations and professional services,” said Serguei Beloussov, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Acronis. “As Acronis pursues an ambitious growth plan and continues delivering innovative cyber protection services, including our recently announced Acronis Cyber Platform, our presence and investment in Tempe is key to future research and development. We invite engineering experts and data center operations professionals from the city’s pool of talent to join our team and accomplish this exciting work on the cutting-edge of technology.”
To develop and enhance innovative cyber protection services like Acronis’ blockchain-based data verification, artificial intelligence-based cyber-threat protections, and machine learning-based ransomware defense, Acronis plans close collaboration with local schools like Arizona State, University of Arizona and others. Engineers and IT professionals interested in exploring these exciting new opportunities are invited to apply for positions at all levels on the Acronis Careers page.
