Acronis antimalware in ICSA Labs September certification: 100% detection rate

Being “good enough” is never enough when it comes to safeguarding your data, endpoints, and workloads. To stand up to ever-changing threats, the strategies and solutions you rely on for data protection and cybersecurity need to keep evolving too.

Given the constantly changing cyberthreat landscape, Acronis is constantly enhancing our cybersecurity technologies to improve the detection rate and overall performance. The most recent efforts clearly paid off in the September round, as Acronis Cyber Protect scored a perfect 100% in all of the tests done by this respected certification laboratory.

Let’s take a look at the latest results.

Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud Delivers 100% Detection Rate, Zero False Alarms

AV-Test, the leading security institute known for putting anti-malware solutions through their paces, recently completed its examination of Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud – our new cyber protection product being released later this month, which delivers a unique integration of backup with full-stack next-generation anti-malware protection and comprehensive endpoint management tools.

The results are in from AV-Test and Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud performed tremendously well.

Acronis True Image proven the fastest cloud backup

When considering their options for cloud backup solutions, users understandably want to know how each will actually perform in real life. The challenge is knowing which solution will create reliable backups, perform seamlessly, and back up to the cloud quickly. In short, they want a solution that will cause the least amount of frustration while providing the best data protection.

MRG Effitas – a well-known independent testing laboratory and a member of the Anti-Malware Testing Standards Organization (AMTSO) – recently conducted a performance test of popular cloud backup solutions.

Their independent testing revealed Acronis True Image 2020 is clearly the fastest personal backup – up to 13-times faster than the competition.

 

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.
