🇩🇪 We successfully restored a data center attacked by the ransomware BlackCat

We recently had the opportunity to help a medium-sized German data center and hosting company that suffered an attack from the BlackCat ransomware. The company contacted us after conducting a Google search, looking for a reliable and effective solution to recover their data.

The attack caused severe damage and the company was paralyzed for more than 30 days. HP and IBM storage systems were attacked by BlackCat ransomware, which affected more than 10 TB of data. The ransomware entered the system through vulnerabilities in VPN protocols, which made it more difficult for the customer to detect the attack.

The attackers demanded a ransom of over $1 million to release the encrypted files, which resulted in extensive downtime on the hosted environments. The client was devastated by the impact of the attack and had no choice but to seek professional help, so our paths crossed.

After the customer has sent the affected devices to our lab, our team starts the diagnostic process using advanced tools and techniques to identify the extent of the damage. 

With the result of the analysis, it was possible to design the path for the data recovery. After that, we explained to the client how the process would happen and made available a commercial proposal, which he accepted. 

The project lasted three months, during which time we maintained constant communication between both parties, providing feedback every other day.

At the beginning of the project, the customer was doubtful and anxious, but as the recovery progressed, he gained confidence in our expertise and resources.

By the end of the project, we exceeded our initial expectations for the amount of data that could be recovered. This was more than enough for the company to recover from the damage it had suffered and resume business activities.
