What is Ransomware?

Ransomware is a particularly painful type of malware that infects your system and blocks access to your data. You can only regain access by paying the criminals who are extorting you or your business...and even then payment is no guarantee that you’ll regain access to your data. It is the fastest growing threat to your data.

Acronis Ransomware Protection Works

Acronis Ransomware Protection is an advanced ransomware protection technology. Completely compatible with the most common anti-malware solutions, our technology actively detects and stops ransomware, protecting all of the data on your systems, including documents, media files, programs, and local backup files created with Acronis software.

The Ransomware Threat

Your computer can be attacked by ransomware when you visit unsafe websites, open email messages from unknown people, or when you click suspicious links in social networks or instant messages. If that happens, ransomware blocks access to your files or your entire system, and demands a ransom to regain access. This malware typically displays a warning that your files are locked and you have to pay quickly to keep your data from being deleted. The frightening nature of the message is designed to prompt the user to immediately pay without giving them time to ask for help from an IT specialist or the authorities.

Keep in mind there is no guarantee that the criminals will return control of your data once you’ve paid the ransom. In fact, Spiceworks reports that only half of the small- and medium-sized businesses that paid a ransom had their data decrypted.

Proven Antiransomware Technology:

  • 15,000+ attacks stopped in a six-month period
  • 10,000+ customers already protected from attack
  • All common strains defeated, including Petya, WannaCry, Bad Rabbit, and Osiris


How it Works

Acronis Ransomware Protection constantly observes patterns of how data files are changed on a system using behavioral heuristics. One set of behaviors may be typical and expected, while another set may signal suspicious activity. Acronis’ technology compares suspicious actions against malicious behavior patterns. If a third-party process tries to encrypt files or inject malicious code, Acronis Ransomware Protection notifies you and asks if you want to allow or block the activity. After blocking the attack, you can recover any altered or encrypted files.

Protection From Future Threats

The behavioral approach of Acronis Ransomware Protection effectively detects and deflects attacks from both known and unknown strains of ransomware. Focusing on suspicious activity (instead of malicious code) not only stays ahead of the criminals, it is more innovative and advanced than the other anti-ransomware methodologies available.
