Acronis Ransomware Protection

Acronis Advanced Ransomware Protection is now free for everyone! It stops ransomware attacks in real-time and helps users to recover data without paying the ransom.


Acronis Ransomware Protection provides an additional level of defense. It can be used together with other data protection solutions already installed on the device; such as anti-virus and backup software. In event of a ransomware attack, Acronis Ransomware Protection blocks the malicious process and notifies the user with a popup. If any files were damaged in the attack, it facilitates the instant recovery of those affected files.

The Acronis Ransomware Protection program is easy to install in your PC devices. It is compatible with all popular backup and anti-virus programs, enabling users to add a robust layer of protection without modifying their existing setup.

A silent killer

Ransomware remains a silent destroyer of data for users worldwide. According to a ransomware survey conducted by Acronis earlier this month, 57.5 percent of the respondents still don’t know that ransomware can wipe their files and disable the computer.

Only 9.2 percent of the respondents heard about the WannaCry or NotPetya attacks last year and 37.4 percent report that they don’t know how to protect their data or choose to do nothing.

These findings demonstrate a need for an easy, universal ransomware protection solution, and 55.5 percent of the survey respondents said that they would use one if it was free.

Proven technology

Acronis stops thousands of attacks every month, saving people’s precious family photos, videos, and important documents. There are many ways to test the effectiveness of the free Acronis Ransomware Protection solution, including the ransomware simulator from RanSim.

This AI-based functionality is tremendously effective at defeating all ransomware strains, including zero-day attacks that signature-based solutions cannot detect.
