On a dry and smoldering afternoon one comes to expect in the UAE, the Sangfor UAE Country Manager received an urgent phone call from an IT Manager at well-known construction enterprise. The customers system had been infiltrated by an unknown ransomware, which caused the immediate shutdown of all the company PCs. While the enterprise had been exploring the option of deploying VDI with many different vendors for several weeks, they had yet to finalize the purchase, and found themselves in need of immediate help.
A phone call from the Sangfor UAE country manager to Sangfor Headquarters (HQ) to explain the situation, resulted in the immediate selection of an emergency response group at the Sangfor HQ. Sangfor’s emergency response group personally delivered their Sangfor NGAF solution to the affected customers office, to replace the F****Gate they were currently using, which had proven itself unable to stop C&C communication between the hacker and victim. Sangfor’s HQ experts were provided remote access and control over the network, and quickly determining that the files and servers were infected by the newest Phobos ransomware virus, which had encrypted the customers entire OA system. Then Sangfor team assisted the customer in installing Sangfor’s newest product, Endpoint Secure, which promptly eliminated all threats and viruses from the system. Sangfor HQ went on to supply a comprehensive incident report and PPT presentation to explain the causes and effects of the virus to upper management of the company.
Within 24 hours of infection, Sangfor had successfully discovered, identified and mitigated the risk, assisted the customer to recover their backups and business systems and provided them with an entirely infection-free and secure network environment.
Shortly thereafter, the customer signed a Strategic Cooperation Agreement with Sangfor, trusting Sangfor with the 24x7 security of their system, and effectively replacing Fo****et, one of Sangfor’s top competitors.
