Acronis is expanding its APIs and allowing even the third-party developers to build on the Acronis Cyber Platform.
Acronis Cyber Platform is the core of the company’s existing services. It features over 100 application programming interfaces (APIs) supported by software development kits (SDKs) and sample code. It was previously available only to developers at Acronis and selected integration partners including Microsoft, Google, and ConnectWise.
The company is now opening the platform with new open APIs to third-party developers at independent software vendors (ISVs), original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), and service providers.
These developers can build on the Acronis Cyber Platform and extend the functionalities of their applications for better control, ease, efficiency, reliability, and security.
For instance, they will be able to create new data sources, data locations, data management capability, and integrate their apps with Acronis cyber protection solutions.
Furthermore, access to the Acronis Cyber Platform will also enable them to integrate Acronis into their apps, system, or marketplace. This will help ISVs, OEMs, service providers, resellers, and customers to drive new revenue and meet more demands of themselves and end-users.
“Extending our proven cyber protection solutions with the opening of our platform and its APIs brings our vision to market and presents an opportunity for ISVs, OEMs, service providers and developers at organizations to extend their applications and extend the functionality of the Acronis suite or cyber protection solutions and make them available to our partner ecosystem,” commented Acronis’ Founder and CEO Serguei “SB” Beloussov.
“We’re known for engineering excellence and we hope to see rapid innovation by developers around the world as they leverage the massive growth of the world’s data, coming from sources such as AI, IoT, edge, and cloud. ISVs, OEMs, service providers, customers and partners can differentiate and drive revenue for their businesses by building on the Acronis Cyber Platform and accessing the Acronis value chain.”
The new APIs are an improved version of the previous set of APIs which were not very robust and developed, told Acronis president and co-founder Stas Protassov to ZDNet.
“We want our partners and customers to use our products more expansively and according to their unique needs,” he said.
