Ransomware and rapid data recovery in City of Sparks
A ransomware hit the City of Sparks, Nevada, but with Commvault ransomware protection, the IT team performed rapid ransomware recovery. During the attack, police department shared files were locked. City employees could not access the geographic information system. However, with Commvault, the municipal government was able to complete data recovery from ransomware in just 12 hours.
Prior to Commvault, the city used a backup product that often left them wondering if it was going to actually restore — or if the recovered data would be corrupt. Fortunately, the municipal government infrastructure team chose to move to Commvault for physical server backup and virtual server backup — and to recover with usable data. Having partnered with Commvault, the City of Sparks infrastructure team is prepared for the future — and recovering data as needed. To sum it up, “You can’t put a price on your data. It’s priceless.”
