The AHEAD Difference
See how our team worked with an independent energy company to advise, design, architect, and implement a solution for their vulnerable assets.
The leadership team at a midwest energy company was acutely aware of increasing ransomware threats. As an energy provider, our client knew that they were particularly susceptible to nearly 4,000 daily ransomware attacks in the U.S. The company held sensitive proprietary information and customer data, making them a prime target for cyber-thieves. To protect their critical operations and their customers, they needed a ransomware resiliency strategy and recovery plan, fast.
Our client required an end-to-end ransomware resiliency design implemented in less than two years. By deeply understanding our client’s needs, AHEAD assembled a comprehensive, self-sustaining ransomware solution across their environments. We custom-designed two air gap vaults and used existing infrastructure to isolate compliant data and leverage existing assets. This solution seamlessly integrated with our client’s existing infrastructure, reducing costs and mitigating business disruption.
By providing a best-in-class air gapped solution, AHEAD ensured our client’s assets are protected during ransomware events. Our client now has access to isolated and self-reliant recovery infrastructure, isolated cyber-vaults and 660TB of Data Domain capacity across two separate vaults. And with multiple recovery capabilities and security regardless of existing infrastructure state, they can continue providing energy services with the peace of mind that operations and assets are protected.
