|URL Filtering: URL Filtering allows you to protect your vServers (VPS), Cloud Servers and Dedicated Servers from threats such as malware and phishing by blocking user access to specific websites with potentially malicious content.
|Disk Integrity: Disk Integrity Monitoring provides you with information about and prediction of the current state of your disks. Both hard disks and SSD type disks are supported.
|Forensic backup: Special image-based system backups that capture additional data such as memory images and process information for forensic investigations. Scan backups for malware Safe Recovery functionality: Safe Recovery functionality automatically scans backups for malware during a recovery process. This functionality first updates its antivirus databases, then runs the scan, notifies of any malware found, and then can also install the latest security patches in the recovered system. Positive list for enterprise applications: Antivirus solutions may identify legitimate enterprise-specific applications as suspicious. Cloud Backup scans existing backups, analyzes the scanned data, and automatically includes your company's specific applications in a positive list. This prevents future false positives.
|Software Inventory: With Software Inventory, you can view all applications installed on all Windows and macOS devices. This allows you to determine, for example, whether an application needs to be updated and removed.
|Intelligent protection plans: To protect your backups from current threats faster, you can have your protection plans automatically adjust to the latest alerts from an Acronis Cyber Protection Operation Center (CPOC).
|Failsafe patching: With automatic system backup creation, you can easily restore operating systems when a patch is faulty.
|Data protection card: Use the Data Protection card to monitor data distribution across machines and the backup status of files.
|Exploit Prevention: Use behavior-based detection heuristics to prevent cyberattacks that use advanced attack techniques, such as zero-day and fileless attacks, and exploit unknown vulnerabilities.
|Continuous Data Protection (CDP): With Continuous Data Protection (CDP), you can back up new data immediately as it is created or modified. For this purpose, the Backup Agent monitors every change made to your files by specific applications. These changes are continuously backed up to a special backup.
|Microsoft Defender management: Microsoft Defender Antivirus is an integrated anti-malware component of Microsoft Windows. With the Microsoft Defender Antivirus module, you can configure a Microsoft Defender Antivirus security policy and track its status through the Cyber Protection Service console.
