Security for Hybrid Cloud

Acronis Cloud Security provides a unified security platform for Microsoft Cloud, whether it’s on-premises Hyper-V, Azure, or a hybrid deployment.
It includes built-in agentless antivirus (AV) and anti-ransomware (ARW) scanning, virtual firewall, intrusion detection (IDS),
deep packet inspection, network analytics, detailed audit logs, and support for software-defined networks (SDN).


Streamline security operations across multiple Hyper-V clusters and Azure instances. Secure all Microsoft Cloud resources from a single console, eliminating the need for multiple cybersecurity tools


Virtual firewall allows organizations to control all inbound, outbound, and VM-to-VM traffic, inspecting packets before they reach VMs or virtual networks


Meet strict security, privacy, and compliance requirements with complete control over access to your VMs, hosts, tenants, and administrative functionality

key benefits

Automatically and immediately protect newly-created VMs with virtual firewall

Increases operational efficiency and lowers total cost of ownership by eliminating point solutions and management complexity

Built-in agentless anti-virus (AV) and anti-ransomware (ARW) protections let you secure your data without a negative effect on VM performance

Centralized on-premises and Azure security management without the need for administrators to log in to the Azure Portal

Integrated Intrusion Detection System (IDS) identifies many attack types including DoS/DDoS, direct access attacks, cross-site scripting, brute force, buffer overflows, stealth port scans, and many more

Security compliance audits made simple and easy with logging of all network traffic, infrastructure configuration changes, and administrator actions

Control all inbound, outbound, and VMto-VM network traffic with the Acronis Cloud Security virtual firewall performing deep inspection of the packets before delivery

Acronis Cloud Security Features

  • Agentless Anitvirus Scans

    Role-Based Access Control (RBAC)
    Granular user and tenant management through role-based access control (RBAC), separating users and resources, reducing risk of cross-contamination
  • Virtual Firewall
    Virtual firewall allows organizations to control all inbound, outbound, and VM-to-VM traffic, inspecting packets before they reach VMs or virtual networks
  • Multi-Version Cloud Support
    Different versions of Hyper-V, like Windows Server 2012, 2016, and 2019 can be managed alongside Azure, all from one console

    Acronis Cloud security uses Change Block Tracking to scan and analyze only the blocks that have changed since the last scan, making scans up to 70X faster
  • Intrusion Detection System (IDS)
    Integrated intrusion detection detects and identifies multiple types of cyberattacks and raises alerts
  • Advanced
    Anomaly Analytics
    Acronis Cloud Security detects abnormal heuristics and behavior using machine learning to measure resource usage against historic baselines

    Acronis Cloud Security applies cybersecurity settings to virtual machines as soon as they are created and placed in a security group
  • Virtualization Security
    Built-in network and security monitoring, and user-friendly remote management capabilities eliminate the need for VPNs, remote network access solutions, or complex permission management services
  • Audit Logs
    Logging of all events, network traffic, and user actions, including results of changes, enabling easy and simple audits to meet strict security compliance requirements

In the object tree, select the entity for which you want to apply the rule. The Rules menu will give you multiple types of rules you can add.

Go to the View menu and select Internal Events Audit. A dialog box will pop up giving you options for filtering the events. Click the Settings button to ensure that you’re saving the event categories you’re interested in.

Go to the Rules menu and select Add Global Rules Group, or right-click on the Global entity and select Add Group. VMs can be added to the new group from the VM Settings menu, or from the Members tab in the group’s settings.

On the affected host, first check to confirm the vFirewall service has not been disabled. If it’s enabled and the rules are still not in effect, check to see if the Acronis Cloud Security filtering extension is enabled on the host.

In the Acronis Cloud Security Setup dialog box, select "Host Management Service" and click on the "Remote install" button. The Remote Installation Wizard will start up and guide you through the installation.
