Tech Plas infected by ransomware
Tech Plas was inflicted with a ransomware virus that threatened to destroy their data unless a ransom was paid. With a lot of customer and business data at stake; Tech Plas management wanted to retrieve the data with minimal hassle. They thus contacted Empower IT Solutions team to retrieve their business information with minimal work disruption. Having serviced small to medium businesses; we clearly understood the impact of a ransomware attack and thus started with the data retrieval process.
Within a couple of hours our team of qualified engineers had a clear strategy about dealing with this particular strain of ransomware without notifying the hacker; and were able to perform a complete system restore of files. Once the files were restored and business operations resumed; an effective cloud backup solution was also implemented.

In order to safeguard the company servers from future risks of being attacked; the team also set up managed monitoring process that would help detect unusual activity and provide an option to prevent similar attacks in future.
