Acronis unveils enhanced True Image family, promises frequent updates

Beloussov kicking off the Acronis True Image 2016 launch.

Acronis, the global new generation data protection provider, yesterday announced the release of Acronis True Image Cloud and Acronis True Image 2016 in Singapore, where it is headquartered.

Serguei Beloussov, Acronis Co-Founder and CEO, predicted that data protection will soon become one of our basic needs, on par with air, water, food and shelter. "Data is like a complete life record. Preserving data is important today and it is going to be more important in the future. At some point... every piece of data should be kept forever," he said. "We believe is that backup should be really really easy."

The newest versions of its backup solution for consumers have gone beyond packages for individuals to families and home office users as well. The family comprises an updated Acronis True Image, a universal full image backup solution that can complete a 20 GB full image backup in eight minutes; and the new Acronis True Image Cloud, which provides complete protection both locally and in the cloud.

Acronis True Image Cloud features multi-device and new mobile device support – including Android, iPhone, and iPad devices and Windows tablets – a new easy-to-use online dashboard that lets users manage all devices from a single place, unlimited cloud storage and a new personal archiving feature.

Danny Ong, Business Manager to the CEO, Acronis, demonstrates how easy it is to back up to the Acronis cloud.

Acronis True Image Cloud provides complete protection against data loss disasters and mishaps, including accidental file deletions and user errors, as well as damaged devices, loss and theft. Acronis True Image Cloud makes it easier than ever to:

Protect all devices
PCs, Macs and newly expanded support for Android, iPhone, and iPad devices, and Windows tablets, extends protection to the world's most popular computers, laptops, and mobile devices in use today.

Manage multiple device backups centrally
The new online dashboard allows a single user to manage the backup and recovery of multiple devices from one place – with the ability to access it from any device and location via a web browser.

Store and archive data in the cloud
Unlimited cloud space and the new personal archiving capability for moving large and rarely used files to the secure Acronis Cloud makes sure that users can conserve physical storage,l while freeing-up hard drives to keep computers running smoothly. Users can access and view archived files from any device and can archive data by type and size.

Powered by the Acronis AnyData Engine 
A set of powerful data protection technologies that capture, store, recover, control, and access any data from any location – Acronis True Image features full image technology that ensures users never lose data by protecting everything with the ability to restore only what is needed – from a single lost file to an entire computer. The new Acronis True Image features:

Saves time with the fastest backup and restore in the industry both locally and in the cloud – up to 50% faster than the competition.

Safety, security, privacy 
Ensures that data is always secure with a user-defined private key that uses AES-256 encryption and secure communication channels, securing data in transit and in the cloud. Only the owner of data can access and manage data protected in the Acronis Cloud, using a password - not even Acronis knows what is in the encrypted data.

Flexible storage options 
Back up data to multiple sources and destinations, including a local drive, external drive, local or remote network, and the Acronis Cloud, as well as third party cloud storage destinations available through local file system integration. Different backup plans may be set up for full system backup, specific files and/or folders.

Optimised for Windows 10 and the Mac OS X operating systems 
Also includes support for Master Boot Record (MBR) and GUID Partition Table (GPT), BIOS and Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI), and WIMBoot.

Real-time release updates

Acronis True Image 2016 is now available for local-only backup and recovery. Acronis True Image 2016 provides entire computer backup and bare-metal restore, and/or migration to new computers using a local hard drive.

The 2016 edition also brings back 'try & decide' capability, providing a controlled, temporary environment to safely test new software, drivers, and system configurations. Acronis True Image 2016 is also powered by the Acronis AnyData Engine.

"The new Acronis True Image combines the most advanced technology for backup with an extremely easy and intuitive user experience to provide complete data protection – from pictures, videos and precious personal information to applications and entire computer systems," said Beloussov. "It's the only solution on the market that gives users complete freedom to protect their data anywhere – in the cloud, locally or a mix of both – on any device."
