Acronis True Image 2015 Backup Plays in Stereo: Local and Cloud

Data protection company Acronis has released its Acronis True Image 2015 family of products. A full system backup solution for personal use, this technology offers dual protection (local and cloud) for multi-platform environments.

This release protects email, music, photos, videos, documents, settings, browser favorites, applications, and the operating system. The solution allows users to restore individual files, or the complete system to any hardware, and get back to work in the event of a system failure.

The Acronis AnyData Engine technology provides the ability to restore to new hardware, allowing users to migrate a full system from one computer to another without additional effort or configuration.

Acronis True Image 2015 new features include full system backup for both PC and Mac; what the company calls an "intuitive user experience" native to the latest Windows and Mac operating systems with support for touch-screen devices; and dual protection so backup copies can be stored both locally and to the cloud.

"The only efficient way to protect data is to do a complete full system backup, which restores everything, allowing the user to continue working without reconfiguring their systems and settings," said Serguei Beloussov, CEO and cofounder of Acronis. "Not long ago, full system backup was available only to professionals — it was difficult to do, slow, and consumed too much storage space. Acronis True Image made it possible for any user to do complete full system backup. The latest release is the most complete, easy, and safe backup solution available on the market for both PC and Mac."
