This might be the secure backup solution you’re looking for

A complete cyber protection solution

Published

Cyber security wasn’t a top-of-mind for most consumers. However, certain events over the past few years have made people more conscious about their overall cyber security. Acronis recognizes this and has come out with secure backup solution for you.

With a majority of people moving their workstations from their office to their home due to the global health crisis, there’s even more of an urgency to protect your files. Homes typically are less secure than offices and this is something cyber criminals are aware of.

The Acronis True Image 2021 wants to be the wall that protects your files from malicious attacks.

“As more people work or attend classes from home, the FBI documents a 400% increase in cyberattacks because hackers know home systems are not usually as well-defended as an office,” said Serguei “SB” Beloussov, founder and CEO of Acronis.

“Backup without cybersecurity is an incomplete option in that situation, as is cybersecurity without backup. Acronis True Image 2021 delivers the easy, efficient, and secure cyber protection needed today.”

Superior cyber protection

Acronis True Image has been the only personal backup solution with a built-in antiransomware that stops attacks in real-time, while automatically restoring any affected files. With the launch of Acronis True Image 2021, those capabilities are expanded with the addition of the company’s advanced antimalware technology, which is currently deployed in Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud.

This next-gen, full-stack antimalware has been shown by independent security labs such as Virus Bulletin and AV-Test to return a 100% detection rate with zero false-positives. As a result, home users gain advanced capabilities with Acronis True Image 2021, including:

  • Real-time protection, driven by AI-enhanced behavioral heuristics, which stops all malware – including zero-day attacks by never-before-seen threats
  • On-demand antivirus scans of the full system or quick scans of at-risk files, either of which can be scheduled in advance or run instantly
  • Web filtering that automatically blocks Windows users from accessing malicious websites that harbor malware, disinformation, scams, and phishing attacks
  • Videoconference protection prevent hackers and malware injection attacks from exploiting popular apps like Zoom, Cisco Webex, and Microsoft Teams
  • Comprehensive detection, with both behavioral analysis and signature-based analysis engines

Acronis True Image 2021 gives individuals and small businesses access to the same protection technologies relied on by global companies and top teams in the world’s most high-pressure professional sports.

Pricing and availability

Four versions of Acronis True Image are available: Standard, Essential, Advanced and Premium.

One-computer licenses starting at SG$ 82 for Standard and SG$ 68 for Essential. Special launch prices for Advanced and Premium licenses (starting at SG$ 96 and SG$ 137, respectively) are available until November 2020, at which time the full MSRP will be in effect (starting at SG $123 and SG $171, respectively).

Microsoft launches Windows 365, a PC in a cloud

Called Windows 365

Published

on

With technology nowadays, it’s easier to carry around a PC-like device in our pockets. Still, having the ability to lug around an actual PC wherever we go is a luxury. Laptops can still be heavy. However, in their latest product announcement, Microsoft is introducing a way to carry PCs over from device to device — at least, to some extent.

Called Windows 365, Microsoft is launching a virtual PC stored in the cloud. Windows 365 allows users to access their Windows installation on any device including those not originally built with Windows. That includes even Macs and Linux devices.

Windows 365 will be installable on eight different devices of 16GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage.

Currently, the service has not launched yet. It will launch on August 2 from Windows365.com. As such, there is no final pricing for the service yet.

Regardless, Windows isn’t exactly launching the service for consumers. Though it’s a huge accessibility tool for users, it’s positioned more for (and hence, more beneficial to) enterprise customers. It will allow an IT department to quickly install Windows on new devices.

Most importantly, companies can now easily onboard telecommuters to their workforce. All they need is a device to install Windows on.

LG announces four new monitors in the Philippines

From content creation to gaming, LG has got you covered

Monitors have been one of the most searched and bought tech products last 2020. And with the increasing demand due to the ever-changing WFH workspace, LG Philippines brought us four new monitors that cater the needs of each and every user.

LG UltraFine Monitor

If you’re the user who edits and color grades 4K videos, this monitor is for you. Aside from providing the best of colors in the class with IPS technology and HDR10 and DCI-P3 support, LG’s UltraFine monitor also provides UHD 4K resolution that’s 4x bigger than the regular Full HD (1080p) resolution. This means details are sharper and crispier.

But what makes this monitor different from monitors other than what LG offers is the Ergo stand where the monitor can be tilted, swiveled, and even rotated accordingly. As the name implies, it’s “Ergo”nomic in a sense that you can adjust the monitor freely without having to move things around. This gives you good posture, better height adjustability, and a cleaner workstation, providing full convenience to the user.

It also has USB-C ports for faster connection and wider support for newer devices. Speaking of, cable management looks cleaner thanks to this new type of stand as you just need to insert it behind.

LG UltraWide Monitor

As opposed to the regular 16:9 aspect ratio, a 21:9 view gives you 33% more screen real estate, making the user do tasks efficiently through split-screen view multitasking. This way, you don’t have to put two different monitors side-by-side.

On paper, it’s got what it takes to be your next best monitor: an IPS display for color accuracy, HDR10 for the best viewing experience, and 350 nits of brightness so you can work even if your windows reflect too much light on the screen. Looking at it directly makes it already immersive thanks to its slim bezels paired with 3-side virtually borderless design. On top of that, it has 5ms response time, Dynamic Action Sync, and AMD Freesync support so you can also enjoy smooth casual gaming, whenever.

LG UltraGear Monitor

LG’s UltraGear monitor provides the best Nano IPS technology in this premium monitor for gamers to enjoy and relive the games they are watching. ICYMI, most gaming monitors use VA panels instead of IPS, which display less color-accurate visuals.

Specs-wise, it’s the best monitor you can get for playing: it has 99 percent sRGB support for that color accuracy, fast 144Hz refresh rate, ultra-responsive 1ms response time with Motion Blur Reduction, and even compatibility to other HDR-enabled consoles such as the Xbox One S and PS4 Pro. Support for Xbox Series X and PS5 might come sooner (or later).

PCs or laptops with HDR-supported graphics card are supported as well so you don’t need to worry. This enables users enjoy punchier brightness and highlights with deeper shadows and silhouettes. Paired with NVIDIA G-Sync compatibility, the monitor also reduces screen tearing and stuttering.

Last but definitely not the least is LG’s Standard Monitor — meant either for the productive users on a budget or just for casual users who need a bigger monitor on their working area.

This monitor, just like the rest in the lineup, offers IPS technology. To make it even better, it has a Full HD resolution, shorter response times than the usual, and improved color reproduction and viewing angles.

This monitor’s aesthetics weren’t compromised either. It has slim bezel on three sides for a maximized viewing pleasure and offers an ergonomic design with tilt adjustments. With Flicker safe, Reader and Color weakness mode features, users will have little to no eye strain.

Casual gaming is also possible with AMD Freesync, Dynamic Action Sync, and Black Stabilizer as well.
