New York Yankees prioritise cyber security with Acronis partnership

Under the agreement, New York Yankees have named Acronis the official cyber protection partner.

The New York Yankees (NYY), the Major League Baseball (MLB) team, announced a new partnership with Acronis, a leader in cyber protection solutions.

To prioritise cybersecurity, the baseball team has named Acronis the official cyber protection partner, with the support of managed service provider, Digacore Technology.

Digacore Technology will equip the Yankees through this alliance with Acronis’ top-tier cyber protection solutions, including the cyber protect cloud, and advanced backup and security. This comprehensive approach ensures Yankees’ critical data remains secure.

In addition, Digacore Technology as Yankees’ official MSP, unlocks significant sports marketing and business development opportunities.

The 27-time World Series title holders are taking their partnership with Digacore a step further by renaming Yankee Stadium’s Banquet & Conference Center to the Digacore Banquet and Conference Center. This move strengthens Digacore’s visibility within the Yankees organization.

Mike Lane, New York Yankees Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer, said, “We are thrilled to embark on this partnership with Digacore via the Acronis #TeamUp Program. The foundation of safety offered by Digacore’s best in class cybersecurity tools will allow us to focus our IT efforts toward achieving technological efficiencies and bottom-line company objectives rather than spending time and valuable resources on defensive measures to prevent and parry cyberattacks. Our databases and proprietary systems are essential to our success both on and off the field, and having confidence in their integrity and privacy through our partnership with Digacore is an asset for the Yankees that cannot be overstated.”

Pat Hurley, RVP Americas at Acronis, said, “This announcement with the globally renowned team, the New York Yankees, marks a significant milestone for Acronis and our expanding #TeamUp Program. Partnering with Digacore, we’re set up for success in elevating the team’s sports technology capabilities and advancements. Together, we’re not only safeguarding the data of a legendary franchise but also shaping the future of cyber protection in professional sports.”

Jacob Berezin, Director of Business Development, at Digacore, said, “As the chosen MSP for the Acronis #TeamUp program, we are honored to play a pivotal role in this innovative collaboration. Our expertise in delivering top-tier managed services aligns seamlessly with Acronis’s commitment to integrating robust IT infrastructure and advanced cybersecurity measures. The commitment to innovation and excellence mirrors our own values, making this partnership a natural fit. We are excited about the opportunities that lie ahead and look forward to a mutually beneficial journey with Acronis and the New York Yankees.”
