Acronis True Image 3rd Party Speed & Ransomware Tests, Apr 2017 from MRG Effitas

  1. 1. ACRONIS TRUE IMAGE 2017 NEW GENERATION Independent, third-party lab reports overview from: Topics: Performance, Usability, Ransomware Protection, Features April 2017
  2. 2. 2ACRONIS © 2017 Another Acronis Industry First! “One of the most important features in the current version is the Acronis Active Protection. It is an advanced, active protection against data loss to ransomware. It protects the backup files upon a ransomware infection and is able to prevent any data loss. This feature makes True Image unique among all backup software.”
  3. 3. 3ACRONIS © 2017 Independent MRG Effitas tests focused on security, speed, usability, and features “We know that all endpoints can be infected, regardless of the security solution employed. That is why in these tests we first focused on the backup protection level against ransomware infection.” “[Next up were] performance and usability because Besides data protection, the backup solution products should be fast and usable.”
  4. 4. 4ACRONIS © 2017 MRG Effitas Independent tests “Among all the products we tested, Only Acronis True Image 2017 New Generation was able to protect the backups from every Ransomware family tested. The other solutions have basically zero backup protection when it comes to Ransomware…” “Acronis won the most performance tests (18 out of 24), and in the cases when it did not win a test, it scored second.”
  5. 5. 5ACRONIS © 2017 Fast: Optimized for modern SSD drives
  6. 6. 6ACRONIS © 2017 Fast: The best cloud performance “The connection speed to its own cloud was way faster than any other competitor’s.” “Acronis True Image earned the ‘best’ title as it finished first in 18 of 24 test cases and, when it didn’t win, it finished second. Acronis did the fastest at backup on HDD and on SSD as well.”
  7. 7. 7ACRONIS © 2017 Ransomware Protection Three scenarios that must be addressed “#1. Local backup file protection against ransomware The number one best practice to protect against ransomware is to have backups. What most home users forget that ransomware can encrypt the backup files if these files are not offline, read-only or in the cloud.”* “#2. Cloud backup file and scheduled backup protection against ransomware”* “#3. Performance” See elsewhere in this presentation about how Acronis wins! Amongst solutions tested by MRG Effitas, the following vulnerabilities were uncovered: • Malware accessing cloud credentials • Man in the middle attacks against the network data flow • .EXE background services not sufficiently protected • The possibility for malware to decrypt encrypted data.” For Acronis? “No vulnerability found.”
  8. 8. 8ACRONIS © 2017 Protection from ransomware families “Among all the products we tested, only Acronis True Image 2017 New Generation was able to protect the backups from every Ransomware family tested. The other solutions have basically zero backup protection when it comes to Ransomware.”
  9. 9. 9ACRONIS © 2017 Acronis protection for the win!
  10. 10. 10ACRONIS © 2017 Protecting backup files themselves “Based on the tests, only Acronis’ backup file is protected against ransomware, the other products archives are only left untouched if the ransomware is not configured to encrypt that kind of file type.”
  11. 11. 11ACRONIS © 2017 Feature Complete “Acronis True Image has been an established backup tool for years and now with the added new features– especially the Acronis Active Protection – Acronis surely takes the lead in this contest.”
