What is Acronis Cyber Protect? List its features and Applications

October 17, 2022 / Acronis Backup

In this article, we will explain to you what is Acronis Cyber Protect and what are its features. With Acronis Cyber Protect, you can obtain real-time guard with MI-based stationery, speculative antivirus, anti-malware, anti-ransomware and anti-Cryptojacking technologies.

Let us start by defining Acronis Cyber Protect-

Acronis Cyber Protect previously it was known as Acronis True Image, is a software program package produced by Acronis International GmbH that safeguards the machine from malware and enables users to backup and recover files from a backup archive.

Malware and Zoom protection are included in Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office since 2020. Hence, the ability to access such features depends on the subscription purchased. In addition to being used by professionals, the software is also used by researchers to identify virus infection patterns to assist in the recovery of computers.

Backup, modern AI-based anti-malware, antivirus, and endpoint protection management are all combined into one solution with Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud.

Let us explore its features-

There are 6 features an Acronis Cyber Protect has-

  1. Backup-
    The software allows users to create two types of backup archives: (1) file backups (which back up files and directories, but not disk metadata) and (2) full system images (which back up files, directories, and disk metadata). Full disk backups can be created for NTFS (Windows); FAT32 (Windows 9x and removable media); Macintosh systems (HFS+ and APFS); and Linux systems (ext2, ext3, ext4; ReiserFS, and Linux Swap).
    Backups of non-supported filesystems are done sector-by-sector by Acronis. When Acronis’ agent is installed within the operating system, backups can be performed in the background while the computer is being used.
  2. On-premises backup-
    Acronis helps in backing up a local computer, any disk or any specific file to the desired location chosen by the user. It is capable of doing incremental, differential, and full backups-

    1. Full backup: In a full backup, everything is backed up entirely detailed by the user.
    2. Differential backup: Differential backups only save changes that have occurred since the most recent full backup.
    3. Incremental backup: Incremental backups only store changes that have occurred since the most recent incremental backup. As incremental backups are linked together, losing only one of them makes the entire chain unusable.
      In the new version of Acronis, the incremental backups are stored in only archive files using the “tibx” extension unlike the Acronis True Image, in which the backups were stored individually in separate tib files.
  3. Cloud-based backup (Only for the subscription users)-
    One of its best features is that the users can store the backups anywhere around the globe in Acronis. Instead of purchasing a copy of the software, users who pay for a year obtain cloud storage that may be used to keep cloud-based backups. Premium users receive 1 TB (terabyte) of space to store in the cloud.
  4. Regain and restoration-
    Users of Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office can restore files from a complete disk or a file-based archive by utilizing either preinstallation disks that already have Acronis on them or straight through the plan’s user interface. The system must restart to complete the recovery operation if protected system files need to be regained (for example, to restore the entire system to a previous state).
    Users may also mount a backup archive, which allows users to browse the contents of the archive like browsing any other disk drive.
  5. Backsliding changes-
    Using Acronis one can protect selected disk drives from unwanted changes and also be reverted if not desired. In place of virtual machines, this can be used to build safe environments that are quick to roll back from within the software.
  6. Disk duplicating (Cloning)-
    A physical storage device (such as an SSD, HDD, or NVMe) can have its data copied across to another drive using the software. Data can be copied to the drive without having to format it; however, the amount of space on the disk must be at least equal to the size of the data being copied. The goal of cloning is to maintain disc metadata.
    Disk cloning, for instance, is helpful when upgrading a computer’s hard drive to a solid-state drive or installing a larger disk. To prevent potential cloning errors caused by unavailable partitions, Crucial suggests performing the clone using preinstallation disks of Acronis.


  1. Despite having to install the agent on the system being cloned, a user can build complete disk backup archives of a specific system using the preinstallation media of Acronis.
  2. Since Acronis analyses computer infections more quickly than other methods like virtualization, it is employed by cybersecurity researchers.
