ACRONIS TRUE IMAGE 2021 UNITES AWARD-WINNING BACKUP WITH ADVANCED ANTIMALWARE

The company creates the first complete personal cyber protection solution. Integrating real-time antimalware and on-demand antivirus with its best-of-breed personal backup solution enables Acronis to deliver unmatched value and comprehensive protection to users

Acronis, a global leader in cyber protection, announced the release of Acronis True Image 2021. The new release integrates advanced cybersecurity capabilities with the best-of-breed personal backup to create the first complete personal cyber protection solution for home users, prosumers, and small businesses around the world. 

Incorporating cybersecurity capabilities such as real-time antimalware protection, on-demand antivirus scans, web filtering, and videoconference protection into Acronis True Image ensures users have complete cyber protection. For individuals and small business users, unifying these vital capabilities in one solution makes their protection easier to manage and more affordable, while greatly improving the security of their data and devices. 

Delivery of this comprehensive solution comes as the COVID-19 pandemic exposes gaps in traditional solutions and strategies. Securing home machines has never been more important, yet a recent Acronis survey found nearly half (47%) of remote workers never received clear guidance on working from home. 

“As more people work or attend classes from home, the FBI documents a 400% increase in cyberattacks because hackers know home systems are not usually as well-defended as an office,” said Serguei “SB” Beloussov, founder and CEO of Acronis. “Backup without cybersecurity is an incomplete option in that situation, as is cybersecurity without backup. Acronis True Image 2021 delivers the easy, efficient, and secure cyber protection needed today.” 

By integrating the company’s VB100-certified antimalware technology into its award-winning personal backup software, Acronis can uniquely offer one solution that tackles the complete range of modern data loss threats. 

Standalone backup and cybersecurity are obsolete

With the modern reliance on everyday devices like computers, smartphones, and tablets, the data they contain has an inherent value. Cybercriminals are constantly evolving their attacks to reach that data, which is why security research firms such as AV-Test report more than 350,000 new malware threats every day. 

Since backup software and files are often the targets of these new attacks to prevent recovery, backup alone no longer provides suitable protection for users. Similarly, conventional cybersecurity solutions do not provide the data protection and recovery capabilities users need following an attack. 

Relying on multiple products that were not designed to work together creates security gaps, is more complex to manage, and is more costly. 

As a single, integrated solution, Acronis True Image 2021 closes those gaps, making protection and security more effective, easier to manage, and more affordable. Users have authentic, unaltered data that’s free of malware for safe recoveries. They can proactively stop any malware attack and then quickly restore affected files. The single, intuitive interface reduces the complexity of managing their security and backups.

Integration delivers superior cyber protection 

For the last few years, Acronis True Image has been the only personal backup solution with a built-in antiransomware that stops attacks in real-time, while automatically restoring any affected files. 

With the launch of Acronis True Image 2021, those capabilities are expanded with the addition of the company’s advanced antimalware technology, which is currently deployed in Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud. This next-gen, full-stack antimalware has been shown by independent security labs such as Virus Bulletin and AV-Test to return a 100% detection rate with zero false-positives. 

As a result, home users gain advanced capabilities with Acronis True Image 2021, including: 

  • Real-time protection, driven by AI-enhanced behavioral heuristics, which stops all malware – including zero-day attacks by never-before-seen threats

  • On-demand antivirus scans of the full system or quick scans of at-risk files, either of which can be scheduled in advanced or run instantly

  • Web filtering that automatically blocks Windows users from accessing malicious websites that harbor malware, disinformation, scams, and phishing attacks

  • Videoconference protection prevent hackers and malware injection attacks from exploiting popular apps like Zoom, Cisco Webex, and Microsoft Teams

  • Comprehensive detection, with both behavioral analysis and signature-based analysis engines

These advanced antimalware capabilities are included with Advanced and Premium licenses, and offered as a three-month trial with Standard and Essential licenses.

Acronis True Image 2021 gives individuals and small businesses access to the same protection technologies relied on by global companies and top teams in the world’s most high-pressure professional sports. 

“Cyber protection is a top priority for Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing,” explains Bobby Rahal, co-owner of Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing. “For the past two years, we have relied on Acronis to protect our data and workloads with the latest cyber protection solutions. When our races were on pause, Acronis continued to provide protection for our team working remotely. Now, with Acronis True Image, everyone can safeguard their personal data against the worst-case scenario.” 

Reliable as ever

The expansion of the built-in antimalware does not come at the expense of Acronis True Image’s backup capabilities, since risks such as disk failures, accidental deletions, and lost or stolen devices continue. 

The new release features several enhancements, including: 

  • Resumable replication of backups. If a disconnection happens while data is being replicated in the cloud, the process resumes from the point of the interruption to avoid duplicating of previously replicated data.

  • Quicker backup validation. Users can now choose to validate the latest version for their backup only, which significantly speeds up the standard process for validating the effectiveness of backups.

  • Greater VM options. Users now have the ability for .tibx archives to be mounted, moved, renamed, and converted to the .vhd format – enabling them to be run as virtual machines.

Pricing and availability

Four versions of Acronis True Image are available: Standard, Essential, Advanced and Premium. One-computer licenses starting at $59.99 for Standard and $49.99 for Essential. Special launch prices for Advanced and Premium licenses (starting at $69.99 and $99.99, respectively) are available until November 2020, at which time the full MSPR will be in effect (starting at $89.99 and $124.99, respectively).
