Why is Acronis making this change?
Cyberthreats are becoming more sophisticated and difficult to detect as cybercriminals use advanced technology, such as AI and automation, to improve the effectiveness and frequency of their attacks. Modern cyber protection requires constant vigilance, which means our solutions must be continuously updated to protect our customers from modern threats. Acronis is committed to ensuring our customers’ valuable data, applications, and systems are protected from risk at all times.
With this objective in mind, Acronis will only sell subscription-based licenses effective October 1, 2021. This policy guarantees that our customers will always run up-to-date versions of our solutions and avoid any gaps in defense, while allowing Acronis to concentrate on delivering superior cyber protection in real time.
Does it mean my products with perpetual licenses will stop working?
No, this policy only applies to the sale of new perpetual licenses. Existing licenses will continue to work and you can continue using your Acronis product. These products continue to be eligible for support (according to
Products Support Lifecycle)
Can I still renew maintenance for my perpetual licenses?
Yes, you can continue to renew maintenance for your existing perpetual licenses.
My computer is not connected to the Internet. Can I still use subscription licenses?
Acronis Cyber Protect 15 allows using subscription licenses in air-gapped environment starting from Update 2 (Build 26981). Subscription license sync with the account can be skipped in this case.
