GB3 proved that a robust backup strategy is the answer to many of the prevalent viruses locking customer files and holding companies to ransom.

This week we successfully helped a customer recover from an instance of cyber crime hitting their IT estate.  It really isn’t if a company will receive an attack but when it will happen. The level of preparation governs the impact that someone opening a rogue file or link can have.  This week we saw tens of thousands of files encrypted in a short space of time following the introduction of ransomware.

“A few hours later, thanks to the GB3 backup system Covault, the impact was minimal and files were fully restored.” 

A few hours later, thanks to the GB3 backup system Covault, the impact was minimal and files were fully restored.  GB3 is now engaged in adding extra layers of security and a full training programme to help staff identify threats before they have an impact.
