The Acronis Backup 12.5 product line has been renamed to Acronis Cyber Backup 12.5.

Today’s digital world needs modern cyber protection. Just backup is not enough: data protection is about safety, accessibility, privacy, authenticity, and security. Acronis has focused on a more holistic approach – designing all of its solutions to address all Five Vectors of Cyber Protection (also known by the acronym SAPAS). The new product names are a way to reinforce this difference.

See Acronis blog for more information.
