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 technical department has advanced every day and we have achieved great and expressive results for our customers. This advancement has allowed us to help our customers save millions of dollars.
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 specialize in data recovery encrypted by PLAY Ransomware and any other extensions.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.
Recovering PLAY 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.
The technology that brings the most results in the recovery of data encrypted by ransomware is called Tracer. It is capable of reconstructing data encrypted by any ransomware extension, without the need for decryption key and decoder. This increases our chances of recovering data on Virtual Machines, Databases, RAID systems 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.
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.
Most of the time yes. Usually the attack happens through virtual ports that have been opened by malicious programs that have been downloaded from the Internet. 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 thief to enter a house, someone needs to leave a breach open or he needs to find a way around the alarm systems. Likewise, a cyber criminal will try to get a partner to enter your computer to open the door for him to enter. These partners may be programs of dubious provenance downloaded from the Web or sent via email. If he can’t infiltrate these through these “accomplices”, the job will be much more difficult.
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 victim, the ransomware can easily spread to infect machines on the network, mainly aimed at servers. If servers are affected, the entire company will be affected, suffering great damage.
Yes, holidays and weekends are the days of choice for cyber attacks. The reason for this is because on holidays and weekends there are far fewer people active in computer network security.
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.
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.
Not at all, unfortunately. In 2020, 65% of ransomware attacks affected data in the cloud. So having the data in the cloud doesn’t mean it’s actually protected.
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.
