Acronis Active Protection takes an active approach to data protection, observing behavioral patterns of ransomware and stopping suspicious activity in its tracks. 

Office Orbiter: “So is the premium plan with Acronis True Image 2017 New Generation worth the higher price compared to the standard edition? To me personally, the extra money is definitely worth the added sense of security that I get from proactively protecting my data from ransomware. My data represent an astronomical investment of time and money and the new ransomware protection feels like a fine addition to my data security.” Full Review:

Acronis is taking a stand against ransomware, stopping encryption before it has a chance to get started, and this review by Office Orbiter highlights just how important that is. Using innovative technology, Acronis Active Protection notifies the user of any unusual activity and stops the attack before any data is lost. 

TechTarget: “’They are a leading company using blockchain for data protection,’ Goodwin said of Acronis. ‘It's important technology and [Acronis] is ahead of the game. The authentication validates the document has not been changed by an unauthorized party, while the certification [requires] multiple parties to sign a document. The method assures the copy was not changed from one party to another.’ Phil Goodwin, research director at IDC's Storage Systems and Software practice.” Source:


TechTarget talks about the way Acronis is using blockchain technology to verify data integrity. Acronis Notary creates time stamped fingerprints of the protected data and stores them in a public blockchain. Days, months, and even years can pass and consumers will be able to verify the authenticity of that data. This technology is vital for important documents such as contracts, chain-of-evidence court documents, and tax audits.
