Tony Carollo, President of Data Shark Technologies has endured a busy season protecting his customers from ransomware infections. Recently, a medical insurance company called in a panic because their servers were infected with the cryptolocker virus. With the network under attack, mission-critical files and applications were inaccessible.
Tony Carollo knew he needed to act fast to contain the infection and get the medical office access to their customer database and files. In addition to having the office take the proper post-ransomware infection measures (i.e. shut every computer down), he started working on the restore. “The process to get the customer back up and running was really easy”, Carollo said. In the end, the medical insurance company didn’t have to pay a ransom and resumed business as usual.
