- Acronis Active Protection, which actively protects data from ransomware, giving customers an added layer of security to their data.
Data Protection, Cybersecurity

On top of that, Acronis’ ability to enable hosters to easily integrate and create valuable offerings quickly is a big win for Liquid Web’s customers.”
