Acronis offers an easy and secure way to back up all data that you hold dear, from pictures to documents. Their latest version of Cyber Protect Home Office is the modern day evolution of their time tested True Image software.
Cyber Protect Home Office
In addition to traditional file backups and full system imaging & restore locally (a la True Image without internet), there is also a cloud service that gives you access to your files from anywhere at any time on your computer or phone. And because criminals are getting more tricky and sophisticated, Cyber Protect integrates anti-ransomware and anti-malware in addition to protection from common threats.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Intelligence (MI) are used to recognize any strange behavioral patterns that are consistent with threats. These threats are promptly quarantined and reported to a database for analysis to prevent future incursions.
Although all this good stuff is super technical, it happens behind the scenes and Acronis has done a good job of making the interface easy-to-use. With a few clicks of the mouse, you can basically “set it & forget it”.
