Acronis Machine Learning

Acronis Active Protection is an advanced technology that uses sophisticated analysis to monitor and stop erratic processes on your system. If ransomware somehow manages to get through your anti-virus and starts to encrypt files, Acronis Active Protection will detect the encryption and immediately halt it – automatically restoring the files to the most recently backed up version. While performing well in independent testing and earning accolades from the media, Acronis has worked diligently to make it even better. The result is an improved version that incorporates machine learning and artificial intelligence technologies.

GDPR Primer — General Concepts

GDPR

The European Union’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is coming into effect on May 25, 2018 and it’s going to affect every business and institution that captures the personal information (like payment card data or government identification numbers) of individual EU citizens. In a digital age in which customer data is considered a core asset, businesses will be forced to review their procedures and technology infrastructure to ensure that data is processed and managed to comply with these new regulations or face stiff financial penalties.

Protect your Mac from Ransomware


In the last couple of years, which will be remembered as the years of ransomware, we saw a lot of cases where individuals and companies were hit by this nasty type of malware.

Fast Backup
