Ransomware is a type of malware, which is hostile or intrusive software that is illegally introduced onto your system with malicious purposes.
This specific type of malware infects your system and blocks access to your data until a payment (ransom) is made.
Ransomware can come at a high cost, not only do you have to pay the criminals blocking your data, it also affects business continuity.
Acronis monitors your system in real time, using artificial intelligence in the process.
It examines the process stack in order to identify activities that exhibit behaviour patterns that are typically seen in ransomware and cryptojacking attacks.
Acronis immediately stops any process from trying to encrypt your data or injecting malicious code.
You’re instantly notified that something suspicious was found and can then choose to block the activity or allow it to continue.
restore affected files
Were files altered or encrypted before the attack was halted? No worries, Acronis will automatically restore those files from the backup or cache – almost immediately reversing the affects of any attack.
