One day in October, P&H Employees logged into their computers one morning to discover they had been hit with ransomware, a form of malware that encrypts data and holds it hostage for a ransom. The disruption caused by this cyberattack was widespread. Employees could not log into their workstations. Data on the server and computers was inaccessible and unreadable. Work ground to a halt while the FBI, law enforcement, and their outside IT company investigated.
Upon deeper look, it was determined the ransomware was of Russian origin, and it spread to P&H through remote access software used by P&H’s IT company. To compound the issue, the IT company’s local backups were corrupted during the attack.
Luckily for P&H, they had more than one set of backups. As a long-time eSilo Backup Cloud customer, eSilo had automated and encrypted offsite backups saved nightly, with an additional redundant copy (mirror) available.
While their insurance company and law enforcement gathered forensic evidence from the compromised systems, eSilo began an Emergency Data Center Restore of the P&H data to a removable hard drive and sent it off to their offices.
Days after the attack, P&H had fully restored their systems and business resumed normal operations
Product & Services Summary
P&H infrastructure was revamped, and the eSilo relationship grew 500%. An eSilo Linux Backup Appliance was also added to secure local backups.
