Axcient Moves To Ease Remote Work Transition Around Coronavirus

One provider of a key component of remote work is offering temporary free licenses for new customers as employers throughout the United States encourage their employees to stay home in an effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

Axcient, a provider of availability and security solutions sold through managed service providers, is making Anchor licenses free for new customers through June, meaning the offer could last for up to three months.

Anchor is Axcient's business-oriented cloud file storage solution. Data in the Anchor system is accessible without a VPN connection and includes continuous backup and support for point-in-time restore.

"Due to the coronavirus pandemic, businesses around the country are implementing a remote workforce, and MSPs are helping enable that transition," Axcient CEO David Bennett said in a statement Monday. "At Axcient, we want to do everything we can to support our partner community, especially during this time of crisis."
