I don't understand what is the point. Why they need creating AV now...

For those who don't know yet.

It's a new security suite by well known back-up software Acronis.

Acronis Backup and Security 2010:
Acronis Backup & Security 2010 is the first home PC protection solution to protect you from both internal threats causing data loss and external threats which can lead to security vulnerabilities. It combines three essential elements into one product:
  • Internet security (full protection from external viruses, spam and malware).
  • Local backup (back up and recover any and all of your data very quickly using our patented, award-winning, disk-imaging technology)
  • Online backup (keep important financial files, photos and other documents offsite in a heavily secured facility, readily accessible 24 hours a day from any location)

I've always like Acronis for backup myself.

By the same token, I really don't get this.
You would think they would be better off to specializing in backup rather than trying to do it all.

The economy is bad and times are tough. Acronis has a great name and reputation with back up. Not much more than can do to increase their share of the market. If they expand, on the other hand, they hope that their reputation will give them a big share in the A/V market. May just be a matter of time and we will see a web page that says: "Free back up with A/V purchase"

I agree with Rich. Not all users are in-tune with the best A/V software. To them, whatever they trust they'll use. It all depends on how much they charge, though.

It could also go the other way for them, for the worse ..

At any count, I think its going to be interesting to see how it shapes up and performs.

Windows 7 baby ! : D

meh I've been using Acronis for years in regards to keeping my system backed up. However recently I haven't been using Acronis...but to answer your question I think that it's foolish of Acronis to release Security software, I agree with what WishMaster says.

Anyways for me I'll be sticking with my good o'l trusty ESET Smart Security, and as for backup, when it comes to my files, ie: Music, Pics, Video I just back it up by hand, when it comes to creating a system Image, I may give Acronis another try, it's either that or I will look into something else.
