Digital Recovery is a company that has been in the data recovery business for over 20 years. In all these years on the road, few scenarios have been as challenging as recovering Ransomware.
Despite the great difficulty in recovering encrypted data, our technical department has advanced without looking back and we have achieved great and expressive results for our customers. Surely we have avoided millions of dollars in losses for them.
Chainalysis (a company that helps government agencies, cryptocurrency businesses, and financial institutions confidently engage with cryptocurrency) did a survey that showed a staggering increase in ransom requests for files encrypted by ransomware, a 300% increase. This research shows how groups have become even more lethal in their attacks.
With hundreds of ransomware operating in the market and every day new and more advanced extensions appear, we can classify Ransomware into the following types:
Encrypts the files and prevents them from being used. Although the files are encrypted, it is possible for the user to boot up the operating system and see the encrypted files.
If your project had a negative diagnosis or the execution time does not meet your expectations, we accept the challenge of analysing your case.
We are a company specialized in data recovery, you can count on us to recover files encrypted by Cat ransomware. We have a specialized division that can work in a dedicated 24x7x365 mode to handle complex cyber attack cases.
Recovering Cat ransomware is possible because we have developed hardware and software technologies that are capable of it. The ability to develop unique technologies puts us at a level that few data recovery companies in the world have achieved so far.
One of our technologies, called Tracer, is capable of generating differentiated results to recover ransomware on Virtual Machines, Databases, and RAID systems. Through millions of calculations and analysis of millions of records, this technology makes it possible to drastically reduce project execution time, as well as in many situations increase success rates to almost 100%.
Our services are mainly focused on governments, financial institutions and small, medium and large companies, but we don’t just restrict ourselves to these areas, we also serve other data recovery companies.
Even if we do not have labs located in your country, we have the technology to be able to assess and recover your data remotely. If this is the case for you, please contact our department 24×7.
We know that a ransomware attack is harmful to the company’s image, so we provide our customers with a confidentiality agreement (NDA) so that there is security on the part of the customer that no information will be disclosed.
We know the critical scenario that is for a company to have its services paralyzed due to cyber attack, generating more damage day after day. That’s why we created recovery in emergency mode, where processes are accelerated and carried out 24 hours and 7 days a week. All so that the recovery is done as quickly as possible.
There is still hope for your lost data, our entire team is at your company's disposal.
With each passing day ransomware attacks are perfected. After a successful attack attempt, ransomware quickly maps the user’s most important files to begin encryption. Microsoft Office files, databases, PDFs, and designs are among their top targets.
Very often yes. Typically, the attack happens through loopholes given by malicious applications that were downloaded from the Web. Another very common way is through incoming e-mails with attachments or links to sites strategically designed to harm users. Your computer can become vulnerable by the simple fact of opening the attachment or clicking on the malicious link.
Hackers often leave threatening messages on affected machines and servers. However, if the data is not important or if you have a backup, if you format your computer and take care not to get hacked again, nothing will happen. There is a new type of computer attack where criminals steal your information and if you don’t pay the ransom, they threaten to spread your information across the Internet and the Deep Web.
I don’t think it is possible to explain this subject with a simple answer. But let’s just cover a few topics on the subject below. The best option is to hire a consulting company or a professional that specializes in the area of cyber security.
Just as in a grand theft there is a high level of planning, so too in a cyber attack.
For a burglar to break into a house, someone has to open the door or he has to find a way to bypass the security systems. In the same way a hacker will try to get a partner inside your computer to open the door for him to enter. These accomplices can be dubious programs downloaded from the Internet or sent by e-mail. If he is not able to infiltrate these “accomplices” the job will be much harder.
Once the program is installed on the user’s machine, the user is responsible for opening the door and informing the hacker that he has a machine available for hacking. Once this is done, the data encryption process begins.
After attacking the machine, the ransomware can easily spread to infect machines on the network, targeting mainly servers. If the servers are hacked the entire company will be affected.
Of course, holidays and vacations are the main periods for cyber attacks. On these days the surveillance is less effective and as fewer people are working in the company, it is more difficult to notice suspicious movements.
In the year 2020 more than 500 million dollars in ransom payments were made.
In first place, with 29% of the attacks, the invasion happens because of downloading an infected file or clicking on a malicious link. In second place, with 21% of the cases, is the attack via RDP [Remote Desktop Protocol], which is a means of access to provide remote access to Windows machines.
It is called Ragnar Locker, this technique uses Windows Virtual Machine system to invade othe machines and servers, encrypt databases and all sort of files in the victim’s environment.
High consumption of processing, memory, and disk access are suspicious behaviors that need to be investigated thoroughly in order to assess whether an attack is underway.
As in 65% of the attacks that occurred in 2020 involved cloud data, we can see from the numbers, that the risk still remains in evidence, even though all data is in the cloud [Amazon and Microsoft].
In 15% of the attacks that occurred in 2020, administrators were able to stop the propagation process even after the intrusion was successful, thus preventing further damage to the environment.
There are a few options on the market and usually the key words “digital risk protection” appear in the product name. Due to the high number of cyber attacks, in some countries such as France, insurers are removing ransomware from insurance coverage.
