    Acronis becomes club's Official Artificial Intelligence Partner

    The club is delighted to announce that Acronis is its new Official Artificial Intelligence Partner.

    Acronis is a world leader in the field of cyber-security and data protection, and will help bring its expertise to the club and its operations.

    As part of the agreement, Acronis will also provide AI and Machine Learning (ML) solutions to process football data to optimise game and business operations, and cyber protection solutions for mission-critical workloads.

    “The sport of football is constantly evolving, and we have entered an age where we are more dependent than ever before on data to make game-winning calls," said the club's Chief Operating Officer, Francesco Calvo.

    "However, the more important data is the more at risk it becomes. This is why we are partnering up with Acronis to not only help us analyse and improve the quality of the data we collect, but also to protect it."

    Acronis sets the standard for cyber protection through its innovative backup, anti-ransomware, disaster recovery, storage, and enterprise file sync and share solutions.

    Enhanced by its award-winning AI-based active protection technology, blockchain-based data authentication and unique hybrid-cloud architecture, Acronis protects all data in any environment – including physical, virtual, cloud, mobile workloads and applications.

    AI/ML technology is a major factor of the partnership. Not only is it being applied in data analysis, but it is also a core part of many of the solutions that Roma will be using to protect their systems.

    One such solution is Acronis Cyber Protect, an AI-powered integration of data protection and cyber security. Everything an organisation needs to protect itself from cyber threats and data loss, including backup and recovery, anti-malware, and security management, can be managed from a single console.

    “Using a patchwork of solutions for anti-malware, backup, and so on leaves gaps in the system that can be exploited by cybercriminals," Acronis' Senior Vice President Jan-Jaap Jager said.

    "Acronis Cyber Protect ensures that organisations like AS Roma can rest easy knowing their data is secure, while also encountering minimum disruptions to their day-to-day operations. Acronis is also working not only to protect AS Roma's data, but also analyse it. AI and ML technologies will help the club in the back office and on the pitch, especially as the country recovers from Covid-19 pandemic.”

    Acronis helps partners and customers worldwide to address the Safety, Accessibility, Privacy, Authenticity, and Security (SAPAS) of workloads.

    Acronis is also helping organisations and individuals secure remote workloads during the COVID-19 outbreak.
