Data protection solution provider, Acronis, has released Acronis True Image 2020, the latest version of its personal cyber protection solution. The company also revealed that this new version allows users to automatically replicate local backups in the cloud, thereby automating the 3-2-1 backup rule that is recommended by data protection experts.
In a press statement, CEO of Acronis, Serguei “SB” Beloussov said, “considering how much we rely on data today, our digital assets have never been more valuable. But that use also means we’re dealing with more data and more devices than ever before. Protecting it all from the ever-growing risk of cyberthreats presents a few challenges — such as increased complexity, security, and cost concerns. By making comprehensive cyber protection easy, efficient, and secure, Acronis can help individuals ensure all of their data is protected.”
Acronis True Image 2020 makes it simpler for users to keep all of their applications, systems, and data safe. This release also introduces a new backup format that provides improved overall performance, including faster backup and recovery speeds. Additionally, the solution gives users the ability to browse files in their cloud backups even faster.
In addition to enhanced backup technology, Acronis True Image 2020 ensures that users can protect their data wherever they are. The updated version lets users choose which Wi-Fi networks they allow backups to run on, enabling them to avoid the metered connections and unsecured public networks that can put their data at risk.
The new platform also enables users to control when backups run while the laptop is operating on battery power, so their backups don’t interfere with the use of their computer. They can also completely prevent backups when on battery, or customize a minimum power-level. This way, if the battery goes under 40 percent capacity, backups won’t run.
Research Manager of Infrastructure Systems, Platforms, and Technologies Group at IDC, Andrew Smith added, “most home users understand the value and need to back up their digital information to prevent data loss. But many are unaware of the growing breadth and complexity of malicious attacks like ransomware. Acronis has developed a comprehensive approach to cyber protection, which marries both backup and cyber security features in a single, cloud-integrated platform for personal use. The updates to True Image will help users ensure their backups are automated and secure, while also enhancing the user’s ability to detect and prevent cyber threats.”
