Ransomware and Rapid Data Recovery in City of Sparks

A ransomware attack hit the City of Sparks, Nevada, but with Commvault data protection the IT team had rapid data recovery. When ransomware hit, police department shared files were locked. City employees could not access the geographic information system. With Commvault backup and recovery, the municipal government was able to complete data recovery from the ransomware attack 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. Originally, the municipal government infrastructure team chose to move to Commvault for physical server backup and virtual server backup – and to recover with usable data. Now with Commvault data protection, the city of Sparks infrastructure team is now 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.” Learn more at https://www.commvault.com/ransomware
