Acronis True Image 2017 New Generation Launched!

January 19, 2017 – Acronis, a global leader in hybrid-cloud data protection and storage, today announced Acronis True Image 2017 New Generation with Acronis Active Protection — active protection against ransomware attacks on user data, Acronis Notary — blockchain-based data certification and verification capabilities — and Acronis ASign — the most consumer-friendly electronic document signing service.

Acronis True Image is the first and only backup solution in the market that introduces Active Protection technology to detect and prevent ransomware attacks in real-time, automatically recover all data from the backup, self-protect backups and the backup application.

According to the FBI, damages from ransomware exceeded $1 billion in 2016 and are growing at an alarming rate, affecting thousands of people every day. This year, cyber-attacks will increasingly threaten data on every personal computer and Acronis delivers the ultimate protection for user data.

Acronis True Image is the fastest and most complete personal backup solution, outperforming the closest competition by more than two times and protecting data on Windows and Mac computers, iOS and Android mobile devices, and Facebook social network accounts. Acronis True Image delivers ultimate data protection for personal and family data using AES 256 encryption and stores it in multiple destinations, including external drives, NAS devices, network shares, and the secure Acronis Cloud.


Acronis True Image 2017 New Generation

Acronis True Image 2017 New Generation is the most secure backup on the market due to new unique data protection capabilities:

  • Acronis Active Protection for real-time active protection against ransomware. Acronis Active Protection identifies unusual activity on computers and prevents malicious applications from damaging user data, backups, and backup software. Cutting-edge behavioral heuristics detect and prevent new and known ransomware attacks, making the backup more secure, and reducing a number of times data need to be restored from the backup.
  • Acronis Notary for Blockchain-based data authentication. Acronis Notary offers certification of the content of any file and verification of content modifications against the original version. Unique, “digital file fingerprints” are stored in a distributed, immutable database based on blockchain technology. Blockchain allows users to verify the authenticity of the information at any time. This is especially important for valuable documents such as contracts, medical records, and financial documents.
  • Acronis ASign for blockchain-based document certification. Acronis ASign allows multiple parties to execute and certify a document with a secure and publicly auditable digital signature. Users can protect their backed-up documents, which are verified with Acronis Notary and electronically signed – all within the same reliable backup solution.

Eugene Kaspersky, chairman and CEO of Kaspersky Lab, said: “The world is facing a rising and increasingly dangerous tide of ransomware affecting individuals and businesses alike. Of course, ideally you should never pay criminals if your data is encrypted by ransomware; that’s all very well in theory, but when it’s your family photos or business documents encrypted, the idealism can swiftly go out the window. There are many measures that can be taken to avoid the damage from ransomware, but a high-end Internet security suite and a reliable backup disconnected from the system is still essential to ensure business continuity if the worst does still happen. And I welcome Acronis’s introduction of backup suited to this trend.”

Besides the unique new capabilities, Acronis True Image 2017 New Generation introduces many more improvements and innovative features to secure Acronis’ position as the leading, fastest, and most innovative consumer backup provider:

  • Easy to use, modern interface: A touch-friendly interface across all devices with an easy-to-use web interface for remote data access and management.
  • Additional features for Mac users: Unmounted NAS support for source and backup destinations, wireless backup of mobile devices to Mac computers with local data browsing capabilities; file notarization and electronic signatures via Acronis Notary and Acronis ASign, and support for Mac OS X Sierra.
  • Complete mobile backup experience: AES-256 data encryption, file preview and recovery, browsing of all cloud backups from a mobile device.
  • Backup and recovery capabilities for Facebook accounts: Browse and recover a Facebook account data to an existing or new account with data encrypted and stored in the Acronis Cloud.

Fuji Xerox Smart Work Gateway Debuts With 14 New MFDs

Fuji Xerox kicked off the new year with a brand new concept they call Smart Work Gateway. Powering this new Smart Work Gateway concept are 14 new multi-function devices (MFDs) under the ApeosPort-VI and DocuCentre-VI C series. In this article, we will take you to the media briefing on the Fuji Xerox Smart Work Gateway, and the product demonstration of the new ApeosPort-VI / DocuCentre-VI C MFD.


The Smart Work Gateway Concept

The Fuji Xerox Smart Work Gateway concept is designed to support different workstyles by collaborating with cloud service partners and offering various communication tools to suit individual needs and preferences. The new Fuji Xerox ecosystem will therefore provide a secure yet open communications environment where their multi-function devices are organically linked with cloud services.

To explain all that, we have Lee Chin Guan, Senior Manager of Marketing, Fuji Xerox Asia Pacific.


The New Fuji Xerox ApeosPort-VI C / DocuCentre-VI C Series

Powering that new Smart Work Gateway concept are 14 new models of cloud-friendly, digital color multi-function devices under its ApeosPort-VI C / DocuCentre-VI C series. In this video, Lee Chin Guan, Senior Manager of Marketing, Fuji Xerox Asia Pacific, gives a demonstration of its key features.

Here is a short summary of their new features :

Cloud Service Hub

The new ApeosPort-VI C / DocuCentre-VI C series create a communication environment that improves productivity in the workplace by integrating the Cloud Service Hub – a new platform that links the multifunction devices with multiple de facto standard cloud services.

Users can log into the cloud services with a single sign-on and can scan or save the documents to the cloud as well as to make prints of documents from the cloud. Documents can also be cross-searched across the cloud services linked to the Cloud Service Hub, thus contributing to business process improvement.

Fuji Xerox Direct Management Console

Fuji Xerox Direct Management Console is a free software that displays the contents of the Fuji Xerox Direct – a portal site that provides Fuji Xerox’s various Internet services – on client PCs.

This software enables users to purchase, download and install apps for multifunction devices from the Internet in a centralized manner. Apps that expand the functions of multifunction devices or connect the devices to cloud services can be easily installed just by dragging and dropping, while also displaying the status of the apps’ license use at a glance.

As the Fuji Xerox Direct Management Console is used from a PC, multiple multifunction devices can be simultaneously managed and configured, providing rapid adaption in the event of sudden changes in working processes; enabling a working environment to be flexibly created and offering a new user experience.

New Super EA Eco Toner

[adrotate banner=”4″]

The new Super EA Eco toner, which boasts the smallest particles in its class, enables smoother creation of half tones, while fusing at a temperature approximately 10 degrees Celsius lower than conventional toners, thus saving energy.

Fastest Scanning Speed In Its Class

The high-end models have improved scanning productivity, achieving 270 pages of duplex scanning per minute, the industry’s fastest in its class. Bulk scanning of large volume documents can be efficiently done as the new multifunction devices scan the front and back of double sided documents in a single scan.

Cloud-Based Help

Hhelp information has been prepared in the cloud server, so the very latest information is always displayable on the control panel of the multifunction devices or on mobile terminals.
