Since 2003, Acronis has been an innovator in ensuring the security and privacy of the data it protects. As threats evolve, we provide customers with new layers of security – from ultra-secure data storage and encryption, to the first integrated anti-malware defense against ransomware and cryptojacking. In addition to enhancing our solutions, Acronis’ innovative research and development helps the Anti-Malware Testing Standards Organization (AMTSO) enhance data security across the industry.
Security technologies: revolutionizing data protection
Modern threats to data are evolving at break-neck speed. Acronis is committed to protecting all data, apps, and systems, which means our experts are continuously identifying new dangers and developing innovative technologies to ensure your data’s security.
Acronis Active Protection
Integrated into our backup solutions, our advanced, artificial-intelligence-powered technology detects and stops ransomware and cryptomining malware attacks in real time. Completely compatible with the most common anti-malware solutions, Acronis Active Protection safeguards all of the data on your systems, including documents, media files, programs – even the backup files you create with Acronis. It also includes self-defense measures to keep malware from targeting Acronis backup software, ensuring your data, apps and systems are safe.
Acronis Cloud Brain
Built by Acronis to enhance protection levels, this cloud infrastructure uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to analyze massive volumes of computer processes that are known to be either safe or malicious in nature. From that analysis, Acronis Cloud Brain creates machine learning models that can predict the value of a target process. That model, when combined with behavioral heuristics, allows technologies such as Acronis Active Protection to detect and stop code injections like ransomware. As a result, our solutions can deal with the most dangerous and sophisticated modern threats.
As new online attacks focus on corrupting and altering files, keeping data safe from unauthorized changes is critical to the future of data security. We developed Acronis Notary as a way to guarantee data authenticity – giving our users the ability to verify that their data (including backup files) is authentic and unaltered. By recording unique hashes for sensitive files in the Ethereum blockchain ledger, Acronis Notary provides indisputable proof that the data is original, unchanged, and safe to use.
Encryption for security
With end-to-end encryption at every stage – at rest, in transit, or in cloud storage – Acronis products ensure your data is always safe, secure and private. Data is encrypted using the enterprise-grade AES-256 algorithm and protected by a user-defined password, so only you have access. Even the metadata communications between your system and the Acronis Cloud is encrypted for total security.
