NioGuard Triple-A Rating Cover

Cryptojacking – or illicit cryptomining – continues to be a major headache for companies and home users, with research showing that cybercriminals made an impressive $52.7 million by mining digital coins on victims’ machines during the first half of 2019.

NioGuard Security Lab, a member of Anti-Malware Testing Standard Organization (AMTSO), researched the matter and just posted a report that examines the level of protection against cryptojacking offered by leading endpoint security providers.

The results might shock some observers because Acronis, which now defends against illicit mining in its data protection solutions, outperformed the vast majority of leading endpoint security providers.

NioGuard finds Acronis Backup Most Secure Business Backup

For companies of all sizes, business backup software is an essential part of their security strategy. Financial, technical, and legal documents, as well as other working materials, form the basis of every business operation and must be protected. If these documents disappeared for any reason, a company would have to deal with big financial losses, if it survived at all.

Every business tries to avoid that kind of data loss, which is why a backup strategy can be found in nearly every organization. While a broad backup plan is good, it is becoming increasingly important to have secure backup software working for you ... and a recent test by independent testing lab Nioguard helps to show why.

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.
