BackupAcronis has released Acronis True Image 2016, the latest version of its leading backup solution for individuals, families and home office users.

Acronis True Image 2016 is the industry’s fastest universal full image backup solution; the company claims it is up to 50% faster than the competition. Full system images ensure data is never lost and users can chose to restore only what is needed, from a single lost file to an entire system.

It ensures that data is always safe with a user-defined private key that uses AES-256 encryption and secure communication channels, securing data in transit and in the cloud. Only the owner of data can access and manage data protected in the Acronis Cloud, using a password.

Data can be backed-up to multiple sources, local and remote, or the Acronis Cloud, and the new release is fully optimised for Windows 10 and the most recent Mac OS X operating systems.

It provides entire PC backup and bare-metal restore, and/or migration to new computers using a local hard drive. The new 2016 edition also brings back the ‘try& decide’ capability, providing a controlled, temporary environment to safely test new software, drivers, and system configurations.

Acronis True Image 2016 is driven by the Acronis AnyData Engine, a set of data protection technologies that capture, store, recover, control, and access any data from any location.
