Acronis delivers backup, anti-ransomware, disaster recovery, storage and enterprise file sync and share solutions to more than 500,000 business customers around the world. Through this strategic partnership, Lendio will be the exclusive capital provider for Acronis’ US-based service providers and customers. Through Lendio’s free service, business owners can fill out one 15-minute loan application and get access to loan options from more than 75 of the nation’s top lenders. Lendio’s loan advisors advocate on a small business owner’s behalf to help them pinpoint the loan that’s right for their business. As part of the recently-passed Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, the federal government has earmarked $349 billion to help small businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Lendio will facilitate loans through the Paycheck Protection Program to help small businesses keep workers employed amid the pandemic and to weather the economic downturn. Acronis #CyberFit Financing powered by Lendio will provide the Acronis community with the critical funding needed to survive and operate during these challenging times. “It's vitally important that we get the economic wheels turning and put these federal loans into the hands of small business owners fast,” said Brock Blake, CEO and co-founder of Lendio. “Lendio is pleased to be partnering with Acronis to help facilitate funds for its service provider partners and customers in the cybersecurity space. Whether it’s addressing immediate COVID-19-related financial issues or assisting them with longer-term financing solutions down the road, Lendio looks forward to helping these businesses succeed.” While business activity has been reduced due to COVID-19, many businesses are still operating, and many of these with staff working remotely. Cyber protection, managed service providers and solutions such as Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud are more important than ever to keep data and infrastructure safe from cybercriminals, hackers and malware. Additionally, essential services such as medical, police, government, defense, waste collection and more need reliable IT services to remain operational and effective. “The global coronavirus outbreak and COVID-19 pandemic has altered daily life for us all, but we must forge ahead to ensure we are doing our part to help. Business continues for many sectors of the economy and with support from the U.S. federal government, and our strategic partnership with Lendio, Acronis is here to provide streamlined access to vital funding to ensure business continuity,” said Serguei “SB” Beloussov, Founder and CEO of Acronis.
