M-Sport teams up with Acronis for cyber protection

Acronis, a global leader in cyber protection and M-Sport Ford World Rally Team today announced a multi-year technical partnership. Under the agreement, the Swiss-Singaporean company will provide the team with innovative cyber protection solutions designed to improve data resiliency and create a more efficient, secure workflow.

M-Sport Ford World Rally Team will be able to access backup, disaster recovery, file sync and share, notarization and e-signature services from a single, intuitive console. As a result, the team’s data will be fully protected from modern cyber threats while remaining easily accessible to team members so it can be used to deliver a competitive edge.

While this partnership is Acronis’ first with a team competing in the FIA World Rally Championship, the company is already a technology partner of choice for many Formula One, Formula E, and other professional motorsport teams. World-class teams prefer Acronis because of the company’s comprehensive and innovative approach. Utilizing cutting-edge artificial intelligence, machine learning and blockchain technologies, every Acronis solution addresses the Five Vectors of Cyber Protection — safety, accessibility, privacy, authenticity, and security of data (SAPAS).

These solutions will help M-Sport Ford World Rally Team ensure the security and safety of the team’s data both at events and at the workshop, while allowing Acronis to showcase its capabilities as it continues growing its business worldwide.

Malcolm Wilson OBE, M-Sport Managing Director, said:

“It’s great to welcome Acronis to the team. Cyber protection is becoming increasingly vital and it’s important that our data is kept secure. Working alongside a company like Acronis means that our engineers can continue to push the boundaries of development – their work kept safe, secure and protected from modern cyber threats.”

Dan Havens, Acronis Growth Officer, said:

“Acronis technology meets the efficiency and reliability of teams competing in the FIA World Rally Championship. It covers all aspects of cyber protection, helping the team focus on the development of their car and achieving results without worrying about the safety of their data. We are proud to be associated with the M-Sport Ford World Rally Team and look forward to a long, successful partnership.”
