Acronis Ransomware Protection

Reviewer's Program

Free, battle-tested defense against ransomware

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.

Immediately stops
ransomware attacks

If a process is caught trying to encrypt your files or inject malicious code into your system, Acronis stops it before any damage is done. You’re instantly notified that something suspicious was found. Then you can either block the activity or allow it to continue.

Easily restores
any affected files

After blocking the ransomware attack, Acronis Active Protection will help you restore any files that might have been altered or infected. Our tool searches for the latest file versions and can recover clean copies from your cache, temporary files, or backup.

Automatically secure
files in the cloud

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.
