Forrester Examines the ROI Enterprises Gain From Acronis Cyber Protection
Acronis recently commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) that an enterprise can realize by deploying an Acronis Cyber Protection solution. The purpose of the project was to provide a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of Acronis Cyber Protection solutions on enterprise organizations.
To better understand the benefits, costs and risks associated with this investment, Forrester interviewed the CIO of a manufacturer of high-performance equipment that has been using Acronis’ Cyber Protection solutions for approximately two years to store and protect the significant volumes of data generated by the design, testing, and deployment of its products. This customer had also been hit by two ransomware attacks and was trying to upgrade its defensive strategy for the future.
The results were compelling and are summarized in the below infographic. Over the course of three years, the manufacturer gained $8 million in value (compared to acquiring the same services elsewhere) yet paid Acronis $5.5 million, yielding a net present value (NPV) of $2.5 million, an ROI of 47%, and payback period of under six months.
