Acronis True Image

After some experience, I think that this is probably the best and most functional backup and recovery software available for the Windows platform. It's straightforward and can act as an insurance policy against disaster. Quite good for the price, to be honest. It has so far saved me from an absolute disaster twice, and I am certain to maintain the latest version for each of my PCs. If you decide to save your restore image to a USB drive, it will require formatting, so it's best to have at least one dedicated volume, accessible by plugging into a USB port, for the purpose.I purchased this software following my experience with Disk Director, which I still use, although I'm not certain that it's up to date. I've noticed that the 2020 version is available on the company's website, but that my software hasn't notified me that an update is available.

Mimecast Information Protection

Mimecast Information Protection is more suited to businesses that have regulatory requirements to meet when it comes to email. The Large File Send is helpful to any size business but the forced encryption, scanning for sensitive info before send, and automatically adding legalize or signatures to all outgoing email is something that is more attuned to business who considering themselves medium-sized or larger when it comes to scaling. If your business meets the size that it becomes more applicable you really cannot go wrong with this solution but from a workability and pricing standpoint.

Cons

Acronis True Image

  • Maybe price for the end-user. Some think it's kind of expensive for a household, given that they could have Clonezilla for free.
  • Better support for third party backup providers like Wasabi.
  • Better mobile UI.

Mimecast Information Protection

  • Some of the more complex features, such as setting up secure messaging, do require patience and a lot of testing to get it right.
  • When sending many files with Large File send it does not zip them up into one file vs. sending them to the receiver as individual attachments that they have to download one at a time.

Mimecast customer support is always available to help and has been excellent both in walking through situations with me, to troubleshoot, and following up when needed. I would give it a 10 except for one crucial issue I have with them. If you email support you some times will not hear from them for days. With this in mind, I have settled on always calling and getting the immediate first line person.

Alternatives Considered

Acronis True Image

Even though it worked, still preferred the paid product because it performed better and was more reliable. Acronis has a well established name and reputation. When I started using it back in 2009, I used it as a free/eval product and because it worked so well then, I decided to purchase it. I have purchased an upgrade every so many years.

Mimecast Information Protection

We have also used the Proofpoint email suite, including their piece that would most be like the Mimecast Information Protection side. I believe Mimecast is both more widely used and a more mature product both on the specific Information Protection side as well as other parts of the complete email package. In the end, they both appeared to do the same thing but our limited IT support made the choice of Mimecast easy in that we could trust the product we were getting.

Mimecast Information Protection

  • The sensitive information scan has allowed us to meet the requirements set upon us by our bonding and insurance entities giving us the ability to bid for larger jobs that if we did not have a product like this.
  • The Outlook based Large File Send piece has automated the sending of larger files for our users to the point that it does not require any intervention on their part - a big time saver.
