How do you get Ransomware? 

Organizations and every-day Australians are destined to pay a ransom if they can’t recover encrypted files quickly. When an attack occurs, WDR provides visibility into the scope of damage, fast restore from uncompromised backups of important files for business continuity, and alerts that uncover unusual behavior from the ransomware infection.

  • Ransomware commonly attacks your files such as text documents, photos, audio, and video files.

  • Ransomware attacks by sending emails with malicious attachments or links through the Internet.

  • As a result, it attacks through messages on untrusted websites that ask the victims to pay money in exchange for unlocking or decrypting the locked or encrypted files on your computer.

Encryption Ransomware

This type of Ransomware encrypts the files so that the saved information cannot be understood. And to decrypt them, it demands a specified amount to decrypt them.


Example: CryptoLocker, CrytpoWall, Locky, etc.

What’s your success rate? It’s one of the most common questions a data recovery company will be asked. Unfortunately data recovery is not a regulated industry so there are many interpretations of ‘success rate’ and a huge number of varying claims.

Some companies define ’success’ as the ability to read any amount of data from your failed drive (which may not contain any useful data), and others will exclude unrecoverable cases from their statistics. When it comes to data recovery, every case is unique and while many customers will enjoy a full recovery, some are inevitably unrecoverable.
