Acronis True Image 2021 Released

Acronis has released a new version of its backup software Acronis True Image Backup 2021 with improved performance and better anti-malware defences.

New features include malware detection, on-demand virus scanning, web filtering and video conference protection.

These are the same capabilities found in Acronis’ Cyber Protect product, which is built for corporate customers.

True Image is aimed at home users, prosumers and small businesses with five or fewer endpoints.

The added security comes as the workforce largely shifts to home offices, and criminals look to exploit those users.

Here’s All The Features in Acronis True Image Plus What’s New:

Dual Protection

All IT experts agree that the 3-2-1 backup strategy is the most effective approach to data protection.

The 3-2-1 backup rule is an easy-to-remember acronym for a common approach to keeping your data safe in almost any failure scenario. The rule is: keep at least three (3) copies of your data, and store two (2) backup copies on different storage media, with one (1) of them located offsite. To clarify, let’s take a look at each point of this rule.

Now Acronis makes the process easy and efficient by replicating local backups in the cloud automatically so you always have an off-site copy available for recovery. Once you’ve successfully completed the first backup, the backup and replication occur simultaneously.

Active Disk Cloning

Make a replica of a Windows or Mac system while it’s in use, without having to stop and reboot. Streamlines migrate all of your data – OS, files, applications, and settings – to a larger or faster disk

Non-stop Backups

Keep working, playing, or surfing with continuous backups that capture changes as often as every five minutes. Set it and forget it – backups run in the background without affecting your computer’s performance

Anywhere Access

Retrieve any file or folder you need from your cloud backup from any computer or mobile device – wherever and whenever you want.

Universal Restore

Easily restore your system to the same or new hardware with our bootable media and driver injection technology. Your data is quickly loaded on the machine of your choice

Automatic Mobile Backups

Safeguard mobile data simply by coming home. Backups to your PC, Mac, and NAS start automatically when your smartphone or tablet connects to your Wi-Fi network

Protection Pause (New)

Suspend the antimalware functions with one click: when you want for as long as you want. Pause for a specific length of time or resume automatically on the next restart

Quick Backup Validation (New)

Speed up the standard process for validating the effectiveness of your backups by only checking the latest version

Antiransomware and Cryptojacking Protection (New)

Safeguard your files, apps, and systems by detecting and stopping ransomware, and cryptojacking attacks. It automatically restores any affected files

Real-Time Protection (New)

Keep your device and backup files safe from malicious activities. It blocks even never-seen-before threats– by checking every file you interact with in real-time

Microsoft 365 Backup

Create direct cloud-to-cloud backups of your Microsoft 365 account, including the emails and attachments from your Outlook.com mailbox and all of the files and folders in your OneDrive

Resumable Replications (New)

Ensure data isn’t duplicated. If a backup replication is interrupted, the process resumes from the point of the stoppage rather than restarting from the beginning

CPU Load Balancing (New)

Keep your computer’s CPU from overloading during antivirus scans by giving priority to other applications so you’re protected and productive

Dark Mode For Mac (New)

Enjoy a more native look for your Mac when in dark mode

On-Demand Antivirus Scan (New)

Ensure threats aren’t lurking on your computer by scanning for malware whenever you want. Choose a quick file scan or a full system scan to check everything

Web Filtering (New)

Block malicious URLs trying to inject malware, ransomware, and cryptojackers onto your system the moment you try to visit them

Videoconference Protection (New)

Keep your data and privacy away from hacker attacks when videoconferencing via Zoom, Cisco WebEx, or Microsoft teams

Quarantine and Exclusions (New)

Keep your device and backup files safe from malicious activities. Isolate potential threats in quarantine, while you control exclusion lists that allow approved programs to run uninterrupted. It blocks even never-seen-before threats– by checking every file you interact with in real-time
