Ransomware Virus Recovery
Recover Your Data Fast
Ransomware is malware that debilitates business and personal computers. All computers are susceptible to ransomware. A ransomware attack can also be impossible to recover from. However, our ransomware virus recovery service can increase your chances.
What is Ransomware?
A ransomware attack occurs when a piece of malware encrypts all files on a computer. This prevents users from accessing or modifying files. In most cases, attackers will promise to decrypt files if computer users pay a ransom.
We understand the urgency that a ransomware outbreak can bring to a business. Please contact us on 020 3931 6340 and speak to a ransomware specialist within minutes.
Should You Pay Ransomware Attackers?
The UK NHS and several big businesses have all been hit by ransomware attacks. In many cases, businesses do pay ransoms. As a result, Ransomware virus creators earn £1 million each week. However, it is never advisable to pay attackers.
- You have no guarantee that paying a ransom will recover your data.
- Paying ransoms gives hackers access to payment information.
- Businesses who pay ransoms are more likely to suffer future attacks.
Paying a ransomware virus creator tells them that you are an easy target. Attackers will also assume that the data you store on your computer is valuable. This makes you likely to become the target of more attacks.
Guarantee Fast Ransomware Virus Recovery by Backing up Data
The easiest way to recover from a ransomware attack is to regularly backup data.
Data backups won’t prevent a ransomware virus from encrypting your files. However, if you have a backup of these, you can simply reinstall your computer operating system. This will remove viruses and allow you to continue business as usual.
- Create backups of files daily.
- Consider syncing important data with cloud storage services like Dropbox.
- Regularly make full backups of your files and operating system.
At Defensity, we can help you schedule automatic data backups. In doing so, you will be able to recover instantly from a ransomware attack. Backups also allow you to recover quickly from other virus threats.
