Acronis True Image 2021 integrates real-time antimalware and on-demand antivirus with its established personal backup solution.

Acronis True Image 2021 is a cyber protection solution targeted at home users, prosumers, and small businesses around the world.

With COVID-19 forcing people to work from home, a recent Acronis survey found nearly half (47%) of remote workers never received clear guidance on working from home.

Incorporating cybersecurity capabilities such as real-time antimalware protection, on-demand antivirus scans, web filtering, and videoconference protection into Acronis True Image helps users enjoy greater cyber protection.

For individuals and small business users, unifying these vital capabilities in one solution makes their protection easier to manage and more affordable.

More details below from the press release.

Standalone backup and cybersecurity are obsolete

With the modern reliance on everyday devices like computers, smartphones, and tablets, the data they contain has an inherent value.

Cybercriminals are constantly evolving their attacks to reach that data, which is why security research firms such as AV-Test report more than 350,000 new malware threats every day.

“As more people work or attend classes from home, the FBI documents a 400% increase in cyberattacks because hackers know home systems are not usually as well-defended as an office. Backup without cybersecurity is an incomplete option in that situation, as is cybersecurity without backup. Acronis True Image 2021 delivers the easy, efficient, and secure cyber protection needed today,” said Serguei ‘SB’ Beloussov, founder and CEO of Acronis.

Since backup software and files are often the targets of these new attacks to prevent recovery, backup alone no longer provides suitable protection for users.

Similarly, conventional cybersecurity solutions do not provide the data protection and recovery capabilities users need.

Relying on multiple products that were not designed to work together creates security gaps, is more complex to manage, and is more costly.

With a single, integrated solution, Acronis True Image 2021 users can proactively stop any malware attack and then quickly restore affected files.

The single, intuitive interface reduces the complexity of managing their security and backups.

Integration delivers superior cyber protection

For the last few years, Acronis True Image has been the only personal backup solution with a built-in antiransomware that stops attacks in real-time, while automatically restoring any affected files.

With the launch of Acronis True Image 2021, those capabilities are expanded with the addition of the company’s advanced antimalware technology, which is currently deployed in Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud.

This next-gen, full-stack antimalware has been shown by independent security labs such as Virus Bulletin and AV-Test to return a 100% detection rate with zero false-positives.

As a result, home users gain advanced capabilities with Acronis True Image 2021, including the following.

  • Real-time protection, driven by AI-enhanced behavioral heuristics, which stops all malware – including zero-day attacks by never-before-seen threats.
  • On-demand antivirus scans of the full system or quick scans of at-risk files, either of which can be scheduled in advance or run instantly.
  • Web filtering that automatically blocks Windows users from accessing malicious websites that harbor malware, disinformation, scams, and phishing attacks.
  • Videoconference protection prevent hackers and malware injection attacks from exploiting popular apps like Zoom, Cisco Webex, and Microsoft Teams.
  • Comprehensive detection, with both behavioral analysis and signature-based analysis engines.

These advanced antimalware capabilities are included with Advanced and Premium licenses, and offered as a three-month trial with Standard and Essential licenses.

Acronis True Image 2021 gives individuals and small businesses access to the same protection technologies relied on by global companies and top teams in the world’s most high-pressure professional sports.

    Interesting how Acronis has gone from making personal backup software to cyber security.

    • tech4tea says:

      Yes. There are synergies between the two. As data backup software, Acronis was in the business of protecting data and its integrity. So if you’ve been hacked but still have a complete and accurate set of data backed up, at least you haven’t lost your data.

  2. Peter Burke says:

    Agreed. When did they get into the business i wonder.

    • tech4tea says:

      They started some years back. I remember SB was in Singapore to brief on the launch of Acronis True Image for that year and I asked him if they were going into the security business when he went beyond backup and talked a bit about security. It was still early days then so he was non-commital at that time. Now it’s a key thrust of the business.
