Acronis has released the newly-rebranded Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office (formerly Acronis True Image). This new name for the company’s flagship personal solution reflects its evolution from data and system backup software to a solution that delivers complete cyber protection — next-generation anti-malware, best-in-breed backup, and easy management, all-in-one integrated tool.
The need for both effective data protection and cybersecurity has become dominant in daily life. Businesses rely on the continuous availability and integrity of their data, while individuals around the world send and receive large volumes of sensitive information over remote connections. Cybercriminals, in response, have stepped up the scale and complexity of their attacks — and with advances in the automation of these threats, no one is “too small to target.”
Recognising the evolving challenges of data protection, Acronis has been advancing its solutions since 2017 to meet the latest challenges. When ransomware threats began targeting file backups directly, the company became the first to integrate anti-ransomware defences into a personal backup solution. In 2021, Acronis added threat-agnostic anti-malware, crypto-jacking protection, and web filtering to its portfolio, evolving from a backup to a complete personal cyber protection solution and not only safeguarding backups but devices as well.
Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office (formerly Acronis True Image) reportedly incorporates a number of capabilities to counter modern cyberthreats and ensure complete data protection. The integration of cybersecurity and backup into a single solution not only makes protection simpler and more affordable, but also delivers advanced capabilities that standalone solutions cannot — such as the automatic restoration of any data damaged during a ransomware attack.
Its advanced anti-malware is proven to detect and stop the latest cyberthreats in real-time, including zero-day attacks that have never been seen before. Protection is extended across popular software, including videoconferencing applications like Zoom and Microsoft Teams, preventing attackers from accessing data in-transit.
“The past two years have changed the industry landscape for good, no user is too small to be targeted anymore” said Candid Wuest, Acronis VP of Cyber Protection Research. “The unique quality of our corporate solutions is the integrated cyber protection – combining cybersecurity and backup is the only way to keep your critical data truly protected. Now we offer Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office – to protect every individual and home office, and keep the world going despite the challenges of the remote work and distributed IT infrastructure.”
