How Acronis Cyber Protection Platform protects against cyberthreats

Cybercriminals have become extremely sophisticated in their attacks. They take advantage of the fact that many businesses and individuals are still not as diligent about protecting themselves and their data as they could be. Acronis' Acronis Cyber Protection Platform is designed to help you protect against threats that leverage ransomware, social engineering and the like. Acronis Cyber Protection Platform protects against advanced cyberattacks by detecting, stopping and preventing them from happening in the first place.

Acronis Cyber Protection Platform does this through Acronis behavioral analysis combined with Acronis Active Protection technology, which can be deployed on-premises or in a cloud environment to protect against malware at all layers of your organization's infrastructure, including physical security (such as endpoints), network communication and applications to identify and contain advanced cyberthreats.

Acronis Cyber Protection Platform is built around Acronis' Behavioral Analysis Engine – a proprietary machine learning system that continuously analyzes new and unknown files for malicious intent 24/7 across multiple sources of threat intelligence. Acronis leverages Acronis engineers with deep expertise and global threat intelligence to identify digital fingerprints of known threats, which are then combined with Acronis' non-signature detection technology. Acronis Active Protection technology utilizes behavioral analysis to detect advanced cyberattacks in real-time across your entire infrastructure – cloud-based or on-premises.

Acronis Active Protection Technology monitors all activity to stop attacks in progress before they can cause further damage or propagate. Acronis Active Protection Technology builds a defense wall that stops attackers from taking over files, hijacking sessions, stealing data and destroying valuable processes including databases and applications. Acronis also provides 24/7 malware cleanup support for businesses that do not have their own IT department or sufficient in-house expertise. Acronis Active Protection technology is based on Acronis behavioral analysis combined with Acronis artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies, RASP (Real-time Acronis Secure Platform) and Acronis behavior-based anti-exploit protection that can be deployed anywhere to protect against data breaches: physical security (endpoints), network communication and applications.
