Acronis has integrated a vulnerability assessment tool into its True Image 2021 cyber protection solution, according to a prepared statement. It also has updated True Image's antiransomware engine, which has earned VB100 certification by returning a 99.9 percent detection rate with zero false-positives in independent lab tests.

True Image 2021 now enables end-users to scan their operating system and applications for open vulnerabilities that malware attacks can exploit, Acronis stated. In addition, True Image offers recommendations to help users close these security gaps.

The new vulnerability tool and updated antiransomware engine are both included in all editions of True Image 2021.

A Closer Look at True Image 2021

True Image 2021 provides backup, archive, access and recovery for Windows, macOS, iOS and Android devices. It offers a variety of features, including:

  • Local, cloud and hybrid backups
  • Full image and file-level backups
  • Disk cloning
  • Videoconference protection
  • Web filtering

True Image 2021 was released in August. It is offered as a personal cyber protection solution for home users, prosumers and small businesses, Acronis indicated.

Acronis Buys Penetration Testing, DLP Technology Providers

Along with releasing True Image 2021, Acronis recently acquired CyberLynx, a provider of security audits, penetration testing, and proprietary training solutions. Acronis plans to extend CyberLynx’s security capabilities to MSP and MSSP partners.

And earlier this year, Acronis acquired data loss prevention (DLP) software provider DeviceLock. With the acquisition, DeviceLock became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Acronis.

Acronis offers antivirus, backup, disaster recovery and endpoint protection management solutions. The company's data protection and cybersecurity solutions are used by more than 5.5 million home users and 500,000 companies.
