Judge blocks Trump's small-business health insurance plan

The Virginian-Pilot | March 29, 2019

A federal judge has struck down a small-business health insurance plan widely touted by President Donald Trump, the second setback in a week for the administration's health care initiatives. U.S. District Judge John D. Bates wrote in his opinion late Thursday that so-called "association health plans" were "clearly an end-run" around consumer protections required by the Obama-era Affordable Care Act. On Wednesday, another federal judge blocked the Trump administration's Medicaid work requirements for low-income people. The legal setbacks came as Trump unexpectedly pivoted back to health care this week, promising a new plan to replace the ACA, commonly called "Obamacare." But many congressional Republicans don't want to have that fight again. Democrats are gleeful, seeing a chance to shift the national conversation to one of their top issues.

Acronis SCS | March 01, 2022

Acronis SCS – an American cyber protection company dedicated to providing certified solutions to the US public sector, announced today the launch of Acronis SCS Cyber Protect Cloud, a first of its kind approach for cyber protection, ranging from backup to security. Acronis SCS Cyber Protect Cloud is designed to help drive Managed Service Providers (MSPs) operational efficiency while protecting our nation's networks. The new solution adopted by more than 19 MSPs and cloud distributors eliminates vulnerabilities, provides immutable backups, and maintains critical data protection and compliance. As cybersecurity and ransomware attacks continue to be a significant concern for over 90,000 public sector agencies across the country, Acronis SCS is implementing solutions that meet the new demands of a cyber-resilient public sector. With a multitude of requirements demanded across public sector organizations and agencies, MSPs can count on Acronis SCS Cyber Protect Cloud to meet an unprecedented breadth of security standards, including those outlined via Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 validation, US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) 800-171 compliance, Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) compliance, and Healthcare Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance. "There continues to be a shift in cybersecurity mandates from the government requiring an increasingly higher level of certification, compliance, and data storage protection against cyberattacks and ransomware," said Phil Goodwin, Research Vice President, IDC. "As a result, organizations must be proactive and begin integrating software and tools that meet or exceed these mandates." "By offering a cloud-based backup that integrates cybersecurity and data protection into one manageable solution, we are on the path to ensuring the public sector is properly protected. Through Acronis SCS Cyber Protect Cloud, we have created a certified and compliant solution that MSPs can now offer to keep up with the public sector and critical infrastructure customers' demand." John Zanni, CEO of Acronis SCS Public sector organizations are vulnerable to cyberattacks and data loss because of outdated legacy IT systems, lack of network visibility, and budget and IT staffing constraints. Acronis SCS enables MSPs and their customers to overcome these security gaps with Acronis SCS Cyber Protect Cloud, the cloud solution certified for the US public sector, which utilizes an integration of technologies and immutable backup elements, including real-time threat monitoring and automatic forensic backup. While the solution simplifies operations and management for end users, it provides MSPs full-stack anti-malware protection, data protection, comprehensive endpoint management and reporting.

Acronis SCS also empowers its partner MSPs with sales and product training, certification, and marketing support, with a solution that streamlines management through a single console, allowing MSPs to set security policies once and deploy them across multiple endpoints.
