Data Protection

Acronis Independent Test Ranking


As with many products, users often choose software based on trusted media reviews and reports. Reviews that are based on tests that clearly compare products against each other can be the most insightful when trying to find the best option.

Knowing how we stack-up against the competition is helpful to Acronis as well, so we recently put ourselves in the shoes of a regular user – examining recent tests to identify which backup product stood out from the crowd.

Easy Backup

When we hear that something is easy, we often think it means it’s childish, has reduced functionality, or requires a lot of training to make it easy. Learning a new language, flying an airplane, or creating a mobile app can all be easy tasks, for example, but only for those who spent a lot of time learning and practicing how to do it.

For a long time, data protection was in the same category. If you’ve been in the IT industry for more than ten years, then you’ve likely experienced the nightmare of rebuilding servers and restoring lost data. It was a difficult and time-consuming task, even for seasoned professionals... and that’s when backups were measured in megabytes and businesses could go for hours or even days without data.

Darkhorse Tech

Darkhorse Tech is wrapping up its 5th year as a leader in the dental technology space. Reuben Kamp, Darkhorse Tech’s CEO and founder told Acronis that their customers want a seamless, managed experience with little to no downtime.

Acronis True Image 2018 - Update 2

Fans of Acronis True Image are getting an early holiday gift. That’s because we’ve just released Update 2, which is loaded with enhancements and new features that make the world’s number one personal backup software even better.

With Update 2, Acronis enhances your control and user experience, expands the capabilities when creating boot media, and ensures mobile data is safe and secure.

Pierre Gasly of Scuderia Toro


As the Formula 1 season came to an end, thousands of people made their way to oil-rich Abu Dhabi to see their favorite drivers one more time. And the picturesque Yas Marina didn’t disappoint.

The Mercedes team that already had the contractors’ championship in the pocket displayed another strong performance, with both drivers taking the first two podium positions, followed by Ferraris’ Sebastian Vettel who settled for third while retaining the second spot in the driver standings.

Black Friday — Acronis

The approaching discounts of Black Friday and Cyber Monday have a lot of people anxiously awaiting new laptops, smartphones and tablets. When setting up these devices, there are a few steps you should take as soon as it is out of the box to make sure your device and the data on it are safe and secure.

Whether you receive one of these high-tech goodies as a holiday present or you’ve fought the crowds for your discounted device, here are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind.

Fast Backup

Fast backup and the agility of recovery are critical for business survival. In fact, they are among the most sought-after features of data protection, according to the last month’s ESG report. A number of recent case studies conducted with Acronis customers confirmed that speed is a decisive factor when selecting a new backup vendor.

Acronis Data Cloud


Acronis cloud data services now share a new innovative platform — Acronis Data Cloud. The new platform brings single integration, unified management console, combined usage reporting, and shared policy engine to all current and future cloud-based services designed for service providers.

Current users of Acronis Backup Cloud will receive access to the additional services as Acronis updates its global datacenters. New partners, instead of signing up for each individual service separately, now only need to sign up for Acronis Data Cloud to receive access to all the available services. Currently, these include the following:

CCleaner Malware

Users of CCleaner for Windows, a maintenance and file clean-up tool developed by Avast Piriform, are being told to update their software immediately, since it’s been discovered that hackers had installed a backdoor in the official application that would allow additional malware to be added to the infected system.

The ability of cybercriminals to access user systems by adding malware into official software builds of trusted vendors is a major red flag. Protecting your data just got even more critical, so here’s what you need to know.

Backup with Ransomware Protection

Since launching Acronis Active Protection, we’re frequently asked why we developed an artificial intelligence-based technology to combat ransomware. And since announcing that it will be part of all editions of Acronis True Image 2018, we’ve heard the question more frequently.

So here’s a look at why is Acronis investing time and money to create a cutting-edge ransomware protection technology and how our AI and machine learning solution fights this ever-growing digital threat.
