“Our company was subjected to a Cyber attack which encrypted our entire server, the perpetrator gaining access through our remote log-in. We thought we had good security in place and were shocked when this happened. As long standing clients of Computer Rescue our first port of call was to contact them. Their speed and professionalism in halting the attack and dealing with the aftermath were excellent. Following their advice over the years it was clear that the support and backup systems we had in place had probably saved our business as within two days Computer Rescue had restored everything and we were able to continue trading. Without our data this would have been very unlikely. We have the latest cyber security in place and we feel confident that Computer Rescue is continuing to monitor and assist us to cut the risk of this happening in the future. In such a fast paced environment this is no mean task I am sure. I would have unreserved confidence in recommending their services.”

Over the past several years, IT networks, mobile networks and general IT communications have been targeted more and more by cyber criminals across the globe. Tens of thousands of new malware threats are being released every single day and half of the cyber-attacks occurring are aimed at small businesses.
