Building a better UX: How Acronis designs for success

Vitruvius, the ancient Roman architect and engineer, famously said that good design embodied firmitas, utilitas, and venustas — strength, utility, and beauty. In designing a good user experience, software companies need an interface that operates reliably, solves users’ problems, and is aesthetically pleasing.

To meet the specific goal of utility, Acronis’ product design draws on conversations with our users, ensuring that we understand the problems they’re facing every day — especially the problems that aren’t being addressed by their current tools.

All-encompassing tragedy prevention: Reviews for Acronis True Image 2021

Last week’s release of Acronis True Image 2021 has certainly been well-received by the individuals, prosumers, and small businesses looking for cyber protection – and that’s the true measure of success for our team.

Yet it was also good to see that the new release made some good impressions on the analysts and media outlets that follow the personal and small business software and cybersecurity industries. As the first truly comprehensive personal cyber protection solution – integrating advanced cybersecurity with our best-of-breed backup – we knew it would generate some interest.

Considering how many over-hyped pitches these industry observers regularly get, it’s been refreshing to see them recognize the revolutionary nature of this release.

AV-TEST examines Acronis True Image 2021 integrated antimalware

When Acronis created the concept of cyber protection – the integration of reliable backups and effective cybersecurity – it was because we saw how hackers were creating more sophisticated attacks that start by corrupting backup software, disabling backup agents, and altering backup files.

We knew then that backup without antimalware is no longer sufficient because it couldn’t keep the data protected.

Acronis True Image 2021: The first complete personal cyber protection solution

In today’s digital world, you can lose data in any number of ways. You can accidentally delete something you need. Your hard drive can fail. And now there’s a never-ending array of malware threats that usually start their attacks by targeting your backups so you have no way to recover. And, until now, there hasn’t been a single solution that addressed it all.

With today’s release of Acronis True Image 2021, that all changes. That’s because the new Acronis True Image integrates advanced cybersecurity capabilities with our best-of-breed personal backup.

The result is the world’s first complete personal cyber protection solution – purpose-built to make protection easier to manage and more affordable, while greatly improving the security of data and devices.

Remote workers need cyber protection

When we made the decision a few weeks ago to delay the general availability of Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud, it was because we wanted to incorporate new cyber protection features for remote workers and workloads. After all, an unprecedented number of people were suddenly being forced to work from home, and their data, applications, and systems needed protection.

That same day, we got an email from our colleagues at the market research firm DCIG to let us know they just published a blog article about how one of their analysts successfully used Acronis True Image for cyber protection and resilience at his home office following a hardware failure.

The timing couldn’t have been more synchronistic.

Acronis CPOC analyzing the recent Ragnar Locker ransomware attack

In a move that’s becoming all too familiar, cybercriminals have encrypted the systems of Energias de Portugal (EDP), one of the largest energy sector operators. The organization faces an $11 million ransom to have these systems unlocked so that they can hope to return to normal operations.

Like all of the ransomware that have filled headlines in recent years, the Ragnar Locker ransomware strain used in this attack would have been detected and eliminated if EDP had Acronis Cyber Protection solutions deployed. Learn how our innovative AI-based cybersecurity technology can help prevent ransomware fallout like this from striking your organization.
