Acronis True Image 2017 New Generation, a must-have personal backup solution that offers Groundbreaking Anti-Ransomware and Blockchain-Based Capabilities

Have you ever thought that you would face cyber-attacks that would threaten data on your personal computer? While you may not be too concerned about backing up your data, the truth of the matter, is that cyber threats are becoming increasingly common and growing at an alarming rate. Based on a report by CNN last year, damages from ransomware exceeded US$1 billion in 2016 and it is still growing, affecting thousands of people every day. Well, Acronis, the global leader in hybrid-cloud data protection and storage, recently announced Acronis True Image 2017 New Generation, that offers a solution to these attacks. It is a backup solution that stores your entire PC on the cloud, with additional features such as “Acronis Active Protection”, “Acronis Notary”, and “Acronis ASign”.

Acronis True Image is the fastest and most complete personal backup solution, protecting data on Windows and Mac computers, iOS and Android mobile devices, and Facebook accounts.
