The Acronis team landed in NYC last week to discuss the global threat of ransomware and present groundbreaking technology that lifts the concept of data protection to a brand new level.

Acronis Consumer Survey Exposed the Need for Effective Defense Against Ransomware

A survey conducted by Acronis in December 2016 exposed the lack of awareness and understanding of the imminent danger presented by ransomware  — an increasingly-pervasive form of malware that encrypts the victim’s files, denying access to them until the user pays an online ransom of hundreds or thousands of dollars. Respondents placed high value on personal data, but were not prepared to pay any ransom in case of an attack.

The survey revealed that while 71 percent of the respondents worry about the safety of their personal data and 41 percent say they cannot afford to lose any of it, 56 percent have no plan for recovering that data if it is lost or held hostage by cyber criminals.

Email has changed the business world forever. Just to think that only 25 years ago there was no email may be a surprise for some. Nowadays your company’s communication relies mostly on email especially if you have remote workforce and multiple offices. Most companies normally use email to communicate with customers, suppliers, partners, media — practically everyone.

Email servers are critical for any organization — it’s safe to say that if your email system malfunctions, your company or your business would suffer greatly. It may even stop operating altogether.

iPhone to iPhone Migration — the Easy Way!

It’s two months since Apple released iPhone 7 and millions of people around the world have already migrated data from their old iPhones to new. For some it was easy. For others, it would have been a daunting task — visits to the Apple Store, asking for help, and so on. What was your experience? Did you migrate data from one device to another with the help of a backup or did everything manually bit by bit?

There is an easy way to move data from one iPhone to another with Acronis True Image mobile backup. Here is my first-hand account of how I helped my mother.

Long gone are the days of the single computer household and mobile phones being a luxury item. With two little ones at home, my family has already accumulated more technology (one iPad, two mobile phones, two laptops and one desktop computer) than we know what to do with.

Plus, we task all of these devices with creating and storing enormous quantities of information that remains central to our lives – from personal photos, videos and music to important work and household documents. At the same time, all of these devices being connected to the Internet, making our digital lives more on the go than ever: nine out of ten households in the US have three or more devices connected to the Internet now.

According to a recent Acronis survey, a third of us have experienced some sort of data loss. However, 22% of us don’t backup our computers or mobile phones, at all.

We’ve all thought about what we’d grab from our house in case of a fire or natural disaster: photos, videos, important documents, and jewelry are probably at the top of your list. These physical objects are something we value a lot. The things we touch, see and feel everyday become an important part of our lives – so it’s natural to want to protect them.

Our digital data holds the same value. Thousands of pictures and videos, precious personal files and information, and important work now live in digital form on our mobile phones, tablets, and desktop and laptop computers. Today, our data is our life. 

 

How are you protecting your digital life?

WORLD BACKUP DAY: The Right Stuff!

Here is a quick recap of the important points we made in our first four articles - also illustrated into our latest video:

WORLD BACKUP DAY - The Golden 3-2-1 BackUp Rule

Backup is important but it is just as important to remember that having one backup copy is sometimes not enough. For example, let’s assume that you backup your computer to an external drive, which you keep in your home office. If your computer crashes, you have the backup copy. However, if a fire breaks out in your home, it will destroy both your computer and the external drive.

For this reason, Acronis has created the 3-2-1 rule (video):

By keeping backup copies both locally and offsite – perhaps in the cloud - you double the protection of your data in the event of any unforeseen event or disaster.
