Last week one of our clients became a victim of a Ransomware attack. The Malware infection encrypted important files on the server at ‘ITS’ and demanded payment.
Binary Bank provides a comprehensive Data Back-up and recovery service to ‘ITS’.
When the Malware hit; ‘ITS’ were fully prepared with an up to date Back-up and did not have to succumb to the demands. With the Disaster Recovery also in place, a restore to the previous back-up that is taken daily, ‘ITS’ were able to continue with their daily business with drama or fuss.
Binary Bank can back up any type of server, application or database from virtual or physical machines, we then store that backup in our data centre securely. Every time you add data or change a file on your server, we copy those changes to our data centre so your ‘backup server’ is always up to date and ready to run.
The Disaster Recovery service protects your server and data in real time, if your server fails and your data and applications are lost we can have a backup server running in our data centre within 15 minutes. It Is business continuity at its best.
Internet-based businesses that connect all over the world will be open to hackers who have programs which silently and continuously scan computer systems and when they find one that is not properly secure, perhaps in the form of a weak password, it is then that encryption can happen.
The key to ‘ITS’ not becoming a victim are these two services: Off site data back-up and Disaster Recovery. Click here to read more on these services.
Following last weeks attack here is what Craig from ‘ITS’ had to say.
“Just dropping a quick email to say thanks to your guys for the help they provided us regarding the virus attack.
As usual everyone was quick and on hand to help in any way they can and its very much appreciated this end.”
