This July, Acronis, a global leader in cyber protection, celebrated its second anniversary since it officially acquired T-Soft, entered the Bulgarian market and established an R&D Center in Sofia. Since then, the Acronis Sofia R&D Center hasrapidly growed. It started with 20 people in 2018 and currently employes about 300. The company took a commitment to increase that number to 1,000 in the next two years, and make the Sofia R&D Center the biggest and most important onefor the company.

On 7 July, the company brought together the communities of cyber protection professionals, partners, customers, media, and employees in a virtual conference to thank everybody for their support, and present its vision on the future of Cyber Protection. 

In September 2019, Acronis achieved unicorn status with a $147 million funding round led by Goldman Sachs. The investment enabled the company to expand its engineering team in Singapore, Bulgaria, and Arizona, build additional data centers, and grow through acquisitions.

It was hosted by the Sofia University. 

"Currently we have about 300 specialists in Sofia and about 1,500 globally. We plan to grow to having about 1,000 specialists in Bulgaria within the next 2 years. We are looking for people with non-standard thinking, researchers, scientists, and individuals with a lasting and serious interest in science to fill various positions - developers, cyber security specialists, QA engineers, designers, product managers, specialists for our data centers, technical support team members, marketers, sales representatives, and others. Anyone who meets the necessary criteria can become part of the company. Try it for yourself! We're waiting for you!," said Plamen Toshev, Managing director, Acronis Bulgaria. 

Recently, Acronis announced the availability of Acronis Cyber Protect, an innovative new cyber protection solution that integrates backup, disaster recovery, next-gen anti-malware, cybersecurity, and endpoint management tools into one service. Developed with significant contribution by the Sofia R&D Center together with the Singapore and US R&D Centers, Acronis Cyber Protect eliminates complexity, improves productivity, and enables managed service providers (MSP) to efficiently make security a focal point of their portfolio – ensuring their business can meet client expectations for data, applications, and systems security and protection.
