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 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 study by Chainalysis, a company specializing in global financial transactions, blockchains and bitcoins, in the year 2020 there was a 3 times increase in ransom requests after ransomware attacks worldwide. This demonstrates how widespread ransomware attacks are.
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.
We specialize in data recovery encrypted by Prometheus 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 Prometheus 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.
Our cutting edge technology is called Tracer, it was developed to recover ransomware of any type in RAID systems , Virtual Machines, Databases, among others. Tracer has had good results. It is capable, through a deep analysis, of rebuilding encrypted data, increasing the possibilities of data recovery on any device.
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.
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 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 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.
Yes. Abnormal slowness in disk processing and high memory consumption are suspicious behaviors that need to be carefully evaluated to see if an attack is in progress.
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.
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.
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.
