Digital Recovery has been in the data recovery market for over two decades, and during all those years, recovering ransomware has challenged us the most.
Despite the great difficulty in recovering encrypted data, our engineering department has advanced without looking back and we have achieved great and expressive results for our customers. This advancement has allowed us to help our customers save millions of dollars.
According to a report developed by a company specialized in financial transactions (Chainalysis, a global consulting, analysis, and market intelligence company focused on blockchains and with emphasis on bitcoins), in the year 2020 alone, there was an increase of more than 300% in ransom demands involving cyber attacks with kidnapped data. This shows that attacks continue to grow at an alarming rate.
With hundreds of ransomware operating in the market and every day new and more advanced versions appear, we can classify Ransomware into the following types:
Encrypts the files and prevents them from being opened. Although the files are blocked, 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.
Digital Recovery is a company specialized in data recovery in cases of cyber attacks, including all types of Ransomware.Our ransomware-focused department works tirelessly 7 days a week and 365 days a year to recover from the most complex cases of ransomware attacks.
Our processes for recovering Locky ransomware are unique as we have developed our own hardware and software technologies. This enables us to recover data quickly and accurately. This ability has placed us among the best data recovery companies in the world.
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%.
In addition to providing services to governments, financial institutions and small, medium and large companies, Digital Recovery also provides services to other companies that also operate in the area of data recovery.
If there is no possibility of sending the affected device to our laboratory, we can do the recovery remotely, anywhere in the world.
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.
Being fully aware of the levels of pressure and urgency that exist in data center and cloud computing environments, we also offer a 24x7x365 standby service. This type of service provides our customers with the ability to perform services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
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.
Usually hackers leave threatening messages on affected machines. But if the information is not important or if you have a backup, by formatting the computer and taking precautions not to get infected again nothing will happen. There is a new type of attack where hackers steal your information and if you do not agree to pay the ransom they threaten to share your information on the Internet.
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 2020 alone it is estimated that payments of more than 500 million dollars occurred for ransomware attack cases.
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.
Currently it is Ragnar Locker that uses the Windows virtual machine system to perform infections and encrypt files and databases in the 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].
Yes, in 15% of ransomware attack cases in 2020, administrators were able to anticipate the spread of malware and stop the infection from progressing.
Yes, there are insurance options on the market for the cyber attack niche, usually the keywords “digital risk protection” appear in the policy description. Due to the high number of cyber attacks, in some countries such as France, insurers are removing ransomware from insurance coverage.
