Retail | Preserving Operations

Retail companies are targeted by ransomware because attackers understand how crucial it is for these organizations to maintain operational continuity.

These attacks are a clear and present danger for retail businesses; grinding sales and support operations to a halt immediately, and often taking weeks, if not months, to remediate.

The crux of the problem is losing access to inventory data:

This prevents items from being scanned and restricts access to records specifically and computer systems generally. 

The costs of a ransomware attack can extend far beyond the ransom price, as shockwaves of the reputation damage reverberate through morale, culture, and guest experience. To reduce these impacts, preserving business continuity is the most responsible thing a retailer can do. Further, the quicker operations can be restored, the more options a business has available to it in its response to the threat. A key element to this is ready access to an uncorrupted backup. The quicker data systems can be restored, the threat can be contained, customers can be notified of any breach of personally identifiable information (PII), and employees can get back to business as usual.
Chris Caprio, a major Ashley Furniture distributor, recognizes the threat of ransomware both personally and as a business. In a previous corporate role, his personal machine was attacked, completely shutting him out of his data for about 4 weeks. In recent years, another Ashley Furniture distributor was attacked in what amounted to a worst case scenario:

These experiences have led Chris to augment his existing backup policies with the Sollensys Blockchain Archive Server (BAS). The BAS was simple to implement alongside Chris’s existing procedures and is configured to backup multiple times per day, providing him an extra layer of peace-of-mind in the wake of a global uptick in ransomware attacks. 

“The BAS was absolutely a no-brainer to have that peace of mind in protecting my team and their livelihoods as well as my guests,” – Chris Caprio, Ashley Furniture.

For the money I spent, to have that peace of mind in protecting my team & their livelihoods as well as my guests, it was absolutely a no-brainer.

Chris Caprio, Ashley Furniture

The ability to avoid business interruption & ensure a safe archive of sensitive client data was more than worth the investment in the BAS.

Jason Shye, Precision Companies

We’d already put a lot of cybersecurity tactics in place, but we had nothing like the BAS, now we feel a lot better in protecting our patients & our business.
