Acronis joins #OpenWeStand movement to support small businesses

Acronis has announced that it has joined GoDaddy’s growing #OpenWeStand movement, joining over 30 brands in contributing resources, tools and insights to help sustain entrepreneurs and the small and microbusinesses they operate during this challenging time.

As part of #OpenWeStand, Acronis has signed a corporate pledge in support of small businesses, stating: “We will protect the business, IT infrastructure, and budget of every customer, while ensuring our partners have the resources and support they need to succeed.”

“During this unprecedented time, our goal is to help as many partners and customers as quickly as we can. Remote work is not possible without IT, which means protecting the IT infrastructure is more important than ever for organizations of all sizes. Acronis offers easy, efficient, and secure cyber protection, enabling partners to succeed as they help their clients safeguard their business, infrastructure, and IT budget, while also helping businesses through our #CyberFit Financing program,” said Serguei “SB” Beloussov, CEO and Founder of Acronis.

“The needs of everyday entrepreneurs are at the very heart of everything we do as a company," said GoDaddy CMO Fara Howard. "We have a duty to provide entrepreneurs with access to the resources and community spirit they crucially need today. We've been encouraged by the initial response to #OpenWeStand and are excited to continue to grow this movement in the weeks and months ahead.”

The #OpenWeStand website has become a communal gathering place for entrepreneurs to learn, ask questions, lend advice, and utilise resources available to them. #OpenWeStand partners are pledging to support small businesses by contributing resources (including how-to articles and videos, webinars and virtual consultations), and discounted product/service offerings, and other relief to help them navigate the crisis.
