Ransomware has become the alligator in the water. If you connect to the internet and use email chances are you will at some point be exposed to RANSOMWARE. Panic is the 1st emotion when one opens a computer file and discovers the entire document is unreadable. The 2nd emotion comes comes when you realize your entire computer or network has been compromised and all of the files are unusable.
The perpetrator has you or they think they do. What are your options? Pay the ransome to unlock your file or hope you have a verified backup which will allow the restoration of data.
Computrs Inc has successfully decrypted numerous RANSOMWARE infections. We will work with you or your company to minimize the damage and restore the computer or entire network back to prior encryption dates.
There are steps to take which will protect your computer and network but none are better than having a secure backup and an offsite backup. Many people believe their backup is working however unless it is verified occasionally you may be left without your current data. Too often we have discovered people and business that thought they had a backup only to discover the last backup was more than 1 year old.
Another strong recommendation is to maintain the computers with regular monthly updates and scans for infections. Dont assume your safe because you only go to SAFE websites. These infections can cost a business thousand of dollars as well as a complete loss of all records.
