MonsterCloud Debuts Free Ransomware Removal Program for Law Enforcement Agencies


MonsterCloud's Cyberterrorism Crisis Response program restores files,
computers and servers to pre-attack status, and is available 24x7 for
any police or sheriff department

Zohar Pinhasi, CEO of MonsterCloud
, a company that specializes in cyberterrorism and
ransomware recovery for an ever-expanding list of clients, has noticed a
recent uptick in calls for help from law enforcement agencies around the
country. It makes him very angry.

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here:

"Targeting the agencies who help people in need and save lives, and then
compromising their ability to respond to emergencies is unconscionable,"
said Pinhasi. "Our message to these cyberterrorists is clear: law
enforcement agencies across the USA have a strong ally — MonsterCloud.
We're honored to provide free cyberterrorism consultation and ransomware
recovery services for these local heroes."

The MonsterCloud
Cyberterrorism Crisis Response program
is available to any qualified
police or sheriff department that has fallen victim to a Cyberterrorism
or a ransomware attack. This comprehensive program includes:

1. Data recovery. MonsterCloud first analyses the case to
determine how to recover the locked files and servers. This process
restores all systems to their original state, then cleans them of all
malware and viruses. Then MonsterCloud secures them with its proven

2. Identify the point of infection. To prevent a re-occurrence,
MonsterCloud's cyberterrorism experts then figure out how the
cyberterrorists gained access and infected the network.

3. Durable protection. Lastly, MonsterCloud installs software
agents to scan for zero-day payloads and other ticking time bombs. These
agents are part of MonsterCloud's ongoing service to protect government
agencies from future attacks.

Ransomware prevents law enforcement agencies from serving their

Recently, Pinhasi and his team at MonsterCloud Cybersecurity have
successfully disarmed ransomware and recovered essential computer
systems for several sheriff's departments across the south. In all three
cases, the ransomware had effectively disabled all computer systems:
email, servers, websites, and files that held critical information.

"We're not usually the recipients of help. We usually get called to help
others. But the day we got hit put us in desperate need of immediate
assistance," said Ward Calhoun, chief deputy of Lauderdale County
sheriff's department in Meridian, Mississippi. "The ransomware attack
locked us out of more than 20 years' worth of data, including incident
reports, jail files, and current case notes — everything we needed,
day-to-day, to take care of the citizens of Lauderdale County — was in
jeopardy. MonsterCloud responded quickly and had us back to full
operational status within 48 hours."
