Ransomware attacks someone every 10 seconds. Don’t be a victim. Our free tool delivers proven, powerful protection from ransomware like Petya, WannaCry and Osiris, and it’s completely compatible with all leading anti-malware solutions.

Constantly guards against bad behavior

Ransomware viruses can’t infect your system on Acronis’ watch. Our technology monitors your system in real-time, distinguishing normal activities from suspicious ones like unauthorized encryption. By recognizing bad behavior, it spots ransomware whether the strain is known or not.

With 5 GB of free cloud storage, you’ll not only protect your data during a ransomware attack, but also from disk failures, disasters and accidental deletions. Plus, cloud backups let you access your files from anywhere on any internet-enabled device. That’s extra protection with added convenience.
