As you are well aware, Ransomware is by far the greatest IT security threat, growing 6,000 percent and exceeding $1B on total ransom paid last year alone. According to Osterman Research, almost 50 percent of all businesses worldwide were hit with ransomware, and no surprise that majority of corporate leaders classify ransomware as a “concern” or “extreme concern.”
But now there is good news! Acronis Active Protection™ is coming soon to Acronis Backup 12.5, the world’s fastest and easiest backup!
Acronis Active Protection is an advanced ransomware attack prevention technology. It protects all data – documents, files, your system, and even your backups and the backup application itself.
Acronis Active Protection analyzes the data-changing behavior of system processes and classifies them to typical and suspicious. Once an unknown behavior is detected, Acronis Active Protection reports the process and proactively prevents modifications of any data by rolling the changes back. This approach is exceptionally powerful in identifying known and even unknown ransomware attacks.
And now, this incredible technology, having already proved itself in Acronis True Image 2017 New Generation, is coming to Acronis Backup to help small and medium-sized businesses (SMB) to fight against would-be data kidnappers.
The administrators will simply need to enable Acronis Active Protection on all machines where Acronis Backup 12 is installed in order to detect and block ransomware. In initial tests, Acronis Active Protection in Acronis Backup 12 has successfully defended against common ransomware types, including Tesla, Locky, 7ev3n, CryptoWall, Zepto, Powerware, LeChiffre, Cryakl, Virlock, Petya, Jigsaw, Crypaura, and more.
