Who Provides Reliable Ransomware Recovery in West Palm Beach?

Call Palindrome Consulting for reliable ransomware recovery in West Palm Beach. We are a full-service IT company serving West Palm Beach and all of South Florida.

Ransomware attacks shut down individual devices, company networks, and even government agencies. If you want to prevent data loss and network insecurity, Palindrome Consulting can help. We also provide reliable ransomware recovery in West Palm Beach for small to large businesses targeted by hackers. This article covers ransomware basics, including how to recognize whether a device has been infected.

What Are the Main Types of Ransomware?

There are three basic types of ransomware:

  1. Scareware. This is the simplest and probably the most numerable ransomware that consists of fake applications such as false antivirus and clean-up programs.
  2. Lock-screen viruses. The second most frequent ransomware consists of viruses that lock up your computer and display a window regarding the cybercrime committed and demanding a ransom to restore access to the device.
  3. Encryption Ransomware. By far, the most dangerous type of ransomware is encryption ransomware. Once this virus is on your computer, it encrypts the file structure and all your files.

How is Ransomware Installed?

You can sometimes recognize ransomware when you see odd looking files. On Windows, executables have .exe extensions and you should view them with extreme prejudice. Here is a list of ransom note files that spell out trouble:

  • _HELP_instructions.html
  • _how_recover.txt
  • Coin.Locker.txt _secret_code.txt
  • de_crypt_readme.bmp
  • de_crypt_readme.txt
  • DecryptAllFiles.txt
  • de_crypt_readme.html
  • _Locky_recover_instructions.txt
  • About_Files.txt
  • DecryptAllFiles.txt
  • encryptor_raas_readme_liesmich.txt
  • Help_Decrypt.txt
  • help_decrypt_your_files.html
  • help_recover_instructions+[random].txt
  • How_To_Recover_Files.txt
  • howto_recover_file.txt
  • howrecover+[random].txt
  • Howto_Restore_FILES.TXT
  • HowtoRestore_FILES.txt
  • ReadMe.txt
  • Read.txt
  • ReadDecryptFilesHere.txt
  • recover.txt
  • recoverfile[random].txt
  • recoveryfile[random].txt
  • RECOVERY_FILE[random].txt
  • HowtoRESTORE_FILES.txt
  • recoveryfile[random].txt
  • restorefiles.txt
  • YOUR_FILES.url

Unfortunately, many of these files do not seem like danger if you’re just glancing through your file directory. That’s why it’s important to keep antivirus software installed on your computer. You should also work with a reliable managed service provider, such as Palindrome Consulting, that can help you adopt a robust data security plan.

How Is Ransomware Recovered?

Ransomware attacks both individuals and companies without discrimination. To minimize losses, use the most effective means available to get back your files. With consistent, frequent backups on-premise and via remote support, you create redundancy, which improves your odds of recovering all of your files and applications.

If the built-in data recovery program is not working, you can try to recover files using the windows backup. This requires a saved backup for the entire system. Setting up Automatic Windows Backup can help you prevent data loss in the event of a ransomware attack.

As the next step, call Palindrome Consulting for reliable ransomware recovery in West Palm Beach. We are a full-service IT company serving West Palm Beach and all of South Florida.

Palindrome has been my IT company for more than 15 years. We have been through four server and computer replacements... over the years all of which went smoothly. As technology has changed Palindrome has kept us current in their recommendations and are extremely responsive when we run into a software or hardware problem. We have been through hurricanes with Palindrome and felt confident they would have us up and running as quickly as possible and despite the fact we are probably a smaller client, they have treated us as one of their most important clients. I highly recommend Palindrome and have complete confidence in their capabilities and service. They have even gone the extra mile when we wanted to donate our old computers to a children's special needs school and delivered the computers, set them up and provided service for the same. Ilan Sredni is the consummate professional and has surrounded himself with top professionals and skilled technicians.read more
