Acronis has announced the official availability of their latest cyber protection solution – Acronis True Image 2020. The new version comes with a slew of features including the automated cloud replication of the local backups. That makes Acronis the first personal solution to automate the 3-2-1 backup rule.
Acronis True Image 2020
The release is the company’s latest solution that brings to life its vision of cyber protection, which combines traditional data protection and cybersecurity into one solution. As a result of this approach, Acronis True Image 2020 is the only personal solution to address all Five Vectors of Cyber Protection – ensuring the safety, accessibility, privacy, authenticity, and security of data (SAPAS).
This unique approach means Acronis True Image 2020 delivers easy, efficient, secure cyber protection to home users, prosumers, and home-based businesses.
In addition, Acronis True Image 2020 makes it easier for users to keep all of their data, applications, and systems safe. While independent labs have already concluded Acronis True Image is up to 10-times faster than the competition, the 2020 release introduces a new backup format that delivers better overall performance, including even faster backup and recovery speeds. It also enables users to browse files in their cloud backups even faster.
In addition to the improved technology behind its backups, Acronis True Image 2020 ensures users can keep their data safe wherever they are. The new release lets users select which Wi-Fi networks they allow backups to run on, allowing them to avoid the metered connections and unsecured public networks that can put their data at risk.
For the last three years, Acronis True Image has been the only personal backup solution with a built-in anti-malware defence that’s powered by artificial intelligence. The integrated technology, called Acronis Active Protection, stops ransomware and crypto-jacking attacks in real-time – automatically restoring any affected files.
Rather than scanning for known malware signatures, the technology monitors the system for behaviours that indicate attacks. As a result of this approach, it is extremely effective at detecting and defeating any kind of attack, including ransomware strains that have never been seen before. In fact, it blocked more than 400,000 ransomware attacks last year.
