Acronis Cyber Protect: Backup Scan for Malware

Backup and anti-malware are two essential parts of a modern endpoint security posture. While scanning for malware is usually performed before doing a backup, there are many cases when malware makes its way into backup images. This can happen because of the limited detection capabilities of an average anti-malware solution or because a backup was done before the anti-malware scan.
Through Acronis Cyber Protect, users can scan full disk backups at a centralized location (Acronis Cloud or on-premises server with the ability to expand support for Amazon, Google, Microsoft, or any other popular cloud storage environment in the future) to find potential vulnerabilities and malware infections, thus ensuring a malware-free backup for a malware-free restore, should it become necessary.
