Macrium launches Reflect 7.1 with brand new features

MANCHESTER, UNITED KINGDOM, September 29, 2017 - Macrium Software, the leading provider of disk imaging and backup software, is pleased to announce the release of Macrium Reflect 7.1 with exclusive features that will boost its reliability and safety. 

The new Macrium Image Guardian (MIG) feature will prevent unauthorised modifying of Macrium Reflect backup files on local and USB attached volumes. MIG provides assurance to every Macrium Reflect 7.1 user that their latest backups are recoverable, even after the worst-case scenario of a ransomware attack. MIG is focused on the single task of protecting Macrium Reflect backup files, so has a small footprint and is very easy to administer.

MIG protects backup files on local NTFS volumes by blocking unauthorised write activity. MIG is network aware and allows other networked Macrium Reflect v7.1 clients to backup to shared MIG protected volumes.

Macrium Reflect 7.1 also includes an updated version of viBoot.  viBoot provides instant virtualization of Macrium disk images to create a running Virtual Machine in a few seconds. This update to viBoot allows future support for other hypervisors such as VMware.  

Nick Sills, Macrium CEO said: "We are excited to announce the release of Macrium Reflect 7.1 which brings significant enhancements to the speed and reliability of our flagship products. We have included new features that we know our customers will love, especially protection against one of the most serious threats to customer data, ransomware." 

Macrium Reflect 7.1 will be made available as a free update for all customers with a current maintenance and support subscription.  Otherwise it can be purchased as an upgrade from either version 5 or 6 of Macrium Reflect.
