  • Suffered Cryptolocker ransomware attack
  • Business-critical data encrypted
  • Risk of significant cost, lost business, and damaged corporate reputation
  • Encrypted files identified and deleted
  • Affected files restored from backup
  • No ransom paid
  • Up and running again in one hour
The company’s three Barracuda Backup appliances are themselves backed up with Barracuda Cloud subscriptions, replicating local backups to Barracuda’s enterprise-grade datacenters for disaster recovery.
“The Barracuda Cloud subscriptions give us extra peace of mind. Even if our on-site backups are somehow compromised or destroyed, our data will be completely secure and easy to restore,” says Murray.
Murray’s appreciation for Barracuda products goes beyond Backup. He and his team also use Barracuda Web Security Gateway to secure web traffic and monitor web usage by Hayward Tyler’s users.
“We had a SonicWall UTM product that we felt wasn’t performing as we had hoped. Since replacing it with the Barracuda Web Security Gateway, we’ve seen a marked improvement. It’s very powerful, but it’s also very easy to configure and manage.”
Hayward Tyler Group PLC has built its reputation over 200 years by delivering products and solutions that fulfill critical functions reliably and effectively in demanding, dynamic environments. Allowing that reputation to be put at risk by a ransomware attack is simply unacceptable. To protect the company’s reputation, data, business, and personnel, A.J. Murray relies on Barracuda Backup and Barracuda Web Security Gateway.
