Acronis Named Finalist for Dr. Dobb's 2014 Jolt Award

When we first brought Acronis True Image to market about a decade ago, our goal was simple: to help Windows users everywhere protect their data. Over the years, we’ve found one industry in particular that’s especially vulnerable to data loss is software development, a massive global industry for which data loss can quickly spell the end of a businesses. Thanks to our dedicated and global team committed to developing products that keep data safe, Acronis True Image has proven brilliantly suited to meet the demands of just about every industry thrown our way, including software developers.

So, perhaps we really shouldn’t be all that surprised that Acronis True Image 2014 Premium was recently named as a finalist in the “Best Utilities” category for the Dr. Dobb’s Jolt Awards, some of the most prestigious and longest-tenured awards in the software development industry.

The Jolt Awards recognize the most innovative, trend-making, ahead-of-the-curve products. Jolt Award judges honor products that are universally useful, that are simple, yet rich in functionality, or that redefine their product space. The reason for the win: Acronis True Image’s ability to run a full system image backup, a technology we pioneered and champion every single day. Check out this awesome write-up from Mike Riley at Dr. Dobb’s:

“In today's cloud-backed-up and Git-replicated world, developers sometimes forget that imaging their own workstations is a good practice to maintain….Relying on the bare bones, built-in Windows backup utility won't cut it — you need a solution that is both more comprehensive and finer-grained. That's where a pro-level product like Acronis True Image 2014 Premium delivers the goods.”

This win is huge for us and another testament to the hard work of our R&D team to bring the market’s best image backup tools to the market. Thanks, Dr. Dobb’s!

(Oh and a reminder that we recently launched Acronis True Image for Mac, which gives Apple users the same protection Windows users have been enjoying for years!)
