Acronis Ransomware Protection is a free, lightweight version of Acronis proven, artificial intelligence-based anti-ransomware technology, which protects users against attacks from both known and unknown ransomware variants. Unlike traditional AV software options, Acronis Ransomware Protection monitors for suspicious activities in real-time, blocks detected processes, and allows users to recover any affected files from local cache. Based on our award-winning Acronis Active Protection technology, the free solution allows users to manage a whitelist of approved apps and blacklist of malicious processes. Acronis Ransomware Protection is completely compatible with the most common/popular anti-malware solutions and comes with 5GB of free cloud storage to put important files out of reach of ransomware and other data threats. It is the single best additional layer of protection a system can add against ransomware.
