Storage provider Acronis is offering Mac users a full system image backup system that matches its Windows equivalent.
The firm said its system is the first of its kind and provides a dual layer of protection to Apple users. Acronis True Image for Mac is available now, and the firm said that it is a ‘must have’ for the security aware.
True Image for Mac will also let users back up a Parallels virtual machine. The firm said users would be able to restore a whole machine, in its active state, quickly and accurately.
Nat Maple, senior vice president of global consumer business at Acronis, said: “We are tremendously excited to announce this offering today. With Acronis True Image for Mac, we’ve established Acronis as the de facto leading provider of full system image backups with dual protection for Apple Macs users.”
Parallels welcomed the release and its support for Windows virtual machines running in a Parallels virtual desktop. Birger Steen, CEO of Parallels, said in a statement: “The new Acronis True Image for Mac brings a new level of support and data protection to Parallels Desktop 9 users who are running Windows environments on Macs.”
True Image for Macs will let users wholesale restore a machine or pick and choose the files and folders that are required. Backups are full and automatic, according to the firm, and multi-machine licensing is available.
Acronis True Image for Mac is available now for £39.95. Users with more than one Apple machine can take on a three-Mac license for £59.95.
