Stats say that an individual is now hit by ransomware every 10 seconds, while a business is attacked every 40 seconds – how long do you think it will take before it gets to you? And do you know how to stay protected when it does?

It’s simple really: Back. It. Up.

Acronis, a global leader in hybrid data protection and storage, has just changed the future of data backup protection with the latest release of Acronis Backup 12.5, the world’s most innovative backup solution offering bulletproof protection for businesses of all sizes. The new Acronis Backup 12.5 comes in two editions: Standard and Advanced, with an easy in-place upgrade.

Acronis Active Protection is an advanced ransomware protection technology, a key part of Acronis Backup 12.5 (currently available as a Windows-only feature, Mac version already under development). It extends the functionality of backup by actively defending business data and protecting backup copies that ransomware tries to destroy. Something that no other backup software in the world can do yet.

Acronis Active Protection stops the malicious behavior and instantly restores any ransomware-encrypted files, helping businesses to avoid restoring backups and enjoy significantly reduced Recovery Point and Recovery Time Objectives (RPO and RTOs).

The solution supports more than 20 platforms, including Windows, Office 365, Azure, Linux, Mac OS X, Oracle, VMWare, Hyper-V, Red Hat Virtualization, Linux KVM, Citrix XenServer, iOS, and Android.
