The company was using a Microsoft Dynamics NAV ERP software and stored the data of this software on a tape drive, which it could not access due to the presence of Ransomware virus. The virus encrypted the data and made it inaccessible.
TECHNICAL DETAILS OF THE TAPE DRIVE
The drive was 320 GB based on NTFS file system. The model number of the storage device was HP 85580258501 and the serial number is HP 3C71130069.
CHALLENGE FACED BY CLIENT
The client tried to access their enterprise resource planning software, but the data related to the software was inaccessible due to encryption.
