Acronis True Image 2017 Launches with Wireless Backup for Mobile Devices to Local Computers, Remote Backup Management, and Facebook Backup

60% Faster than Previous Release, More than Three Times Faster than Nearest Competitor

Acronis®, a leading provider of hybrid cloud data protection, today announced Acronis True Image 2017, the latest release of the world’s fastest personal backup software. The 2017 release provides the most complete personal data protection available on the market. Acronis True Image 2017 combines the unmatched Acronis full image local and cloud backup for computers with new wireless backup for mobile devices to local Windows computers or the secure Acronis Cloud, support for an unlimited number of mobile devices, and complete backup of Facebook account data.

“Personal data is increasingly residing on mobile devices and in social media accounts,” said Serguei Beloussov, co-founder, and CEO of Acronis. “Acronis True Image 2017 protects all data no matter where it resides and provides the fastest and easiest backup in the industry.”

The Fastest Acronis True Image ever

Acronis True Image technology is the fastest full image backup and recovery software for personal use on the market [1], including:

  • Three to six times faster on Windows computers than competing products for backing up and recovering using an external USB 3.0 drive.
  • 30% faster than Apple Time Machine on Apple computers.
  • 60% faster than previous versions of Acronis True Image in popular scenarios.

As a global partner of the Scuderia Toro Rosso Formula 1 Racing Team, Acronis puts its technologies to the test in workloads demanded by the most technologically advanced sport.

“Instant access to the massive amounts of data we generate every race is an absolute requirement for our team to be successful,” said Scuderia Toro Rosso Team Principal Franz Tost. “If we lose data even for a few seconds, the race is lost, which is why we rely on Acronis for the most complete backup.”

The #1 Personal Backup Software for Complete Data Protection

With fast, easy, and complete data protection, Acronis True Image 2017 delivers more than 50 new features, including:

  • Wireless mobile device backup to Windows computers – Backup an unlimited number of iPhones, iPads, and Android mobile devices to your computer at the full speed of your local Wi-Fi network. Recover all content to the same or another device, even if it’s just a single photo or contact.
  • Remote backup management – Protect all your computers and help family members with protecting theirs, even if they are far away. Review the data protection status in real-time for any computer or mobile device data via a touch-friendly online dashboard.
  • Incremental Facebook backup – Automatically back up all your Facebook account content, including photos, videos, contacts, comments, and likes. Users are protected from accidental deletions, hacker attacks, application failures, or social network errors that can erase precious memories.
  • Archiving to the cloud or external storage devices – Free up disk space by moving large or rarely used files from your Windows or Apple computer to an external drive, NAS device, network share, or the Acronis Cloud. Access the archives by using File Explorer, Finder, or a web browser.
  • Enhanced NAS – Automatically discover NAS devices available on the local network, pre-configuring them for backup storage, and automatically re-connecting them if they are temporarily unavailable.

Acronis True Image 2017 has many additional new features, such as search in local and Cloud backups, encryption for archives, comments for backups, Windows Explorer integration, a refreshed touch-friendly user interface on iOS and Android devices, and much more.

“It's not if your computer will crash, it’s when—and I learned that the hard way,” said Robert Tarver, an Acronis True Image user since 2015. “I was using another vendor’s file and folder backup product when my hard drive crashed. A computer repair technician informed me that only my data files were backed up; not my OS, program files, and settings. To properly back up, he recommended Acronis. It has since saved not only my computer but my wife’s computer as well. I am very thankful to Acronis for keeping my data safe.”

Availability and Pricing

Acronis True Image 2017 is available for purchase starting at $39 for a 1-computer subscription, and $49 for 1-computer license.  For more information and to buy, click here.
