Unequivocal test results: Among all the products tested, only Acronis True Image 2017 New Generation can protect the data from ransomware

BURLINGTON, MA – April 24, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — Acronis, a global leader in hybrid cloud data protection and storage today announced the latest product comparison report fromMRG Effitas, a UK-based independent IT security research company that provides a range of efficacy assessment and assurance services. The report conclusively demonstrated that Acronis True Image 2017 New Generation is the most advanced consumer backup solution as measured by ransomware protection, performance, usability, and feature set.


MRG Effitas compared Acronis True Image 2017 New Generation, CrashPlan Home 4.8.0, EaseUS TODO Backup Home 10.0, Genie Timeline Home 2016, IDrive, Macrium Reflect Home 6.3.1655, NovaBACKUP 18.5 Build 926, and Paragon Backup and Recovery 16. The result was a comprehensive 2017 report entitled “MRG Effitas Comparative Assessment of Data Protection/Backup Products on Protection, Performance, and Usability” – https://goo.gl/5CfU5s

The report singled out Acronis True Image as the only solution that protected data against every assessed ransomware threat, thanks to the innovative Acronis Active Protection™ technology released earlier this year.

“Among all the products we tested, only Acronis True Image 2017 New Generation was able to protect the backups from every ransomware family tested,” states the report’s final conclusion. “The other solutions have basically zero backup protection when it comes to ransomware… Based on the tests, only Acronis’s backup file is protected against the tested ransomware.”

“Ransomware currently represents a significant risk to end users, businesses and government institutions. Anti-malware technologies can’t provide 100 percent protection against this class of threat. What this test shows is that anyone relying on a backup solution to mitigate against the risks imposed by ransomware if their anti-malware technology fails should not just assume that it will be effective without independent, third party verification.” Chris Pickard, CEO of MRG Effitas.

That’s not the only finding that pointed to the Acronis solution as the optimal choice. According to MRG Effitas, Acronis True Image alsocame first in 18 of 24 performance test and when it didn’t win, it finished second.

“These results confirm our internal testing,” said John Zanni, CMO of Acronis. “Acronis True Image is the fastest home backup on the market and the only product that is able to protect itself, and the data, from ransomware. The same anti-ransomware technology is currently being rolled out across the full range of our business products and we’ll continue to invest in R&D, making data protection fast, easy, complete — for everybody.”?
