Recently, CMIT Solutions of San Antonio SE provided a disaster recovery solution for El Oso Water Supply, a local supplier that many rural communities rely on for safe, clean water service to residences and businesses.

After a ransomware attack, El Oso called upon CMIT Solutions to stop the spread of further compromise, which not only affected the company’s data but stole customer billing information as well. Luckily, CMIT Solutions took the call and immediately shut down the main server, virtualizing El Oso’s backup and disaster recovery (BDR) device so staff could continue working. CMIT also cleaned the infected devices and then restored all files from the backup so that no information was lost. In essence, CMIT Solutions provided state-of-the-art disaster recovery solutions for El Oso by ensuring that all data and organizational technology infrastructure were backed up in an easy-to-restore way in case of another cyberattack.

“CMIT Solutions has given us peace of mind,” said Carolyn Pfeil Black, general manager of El Oso. “We now know that no matter what happens, CMIT has our back. Even when disaster strikes — like this ransomware virus that came out of the blue and threatened our entire business — CMIT is just a phone call away.” 

This is another example of how CMIT Solutions’ franchise partners help their clients to implement preventative maintenance, delivering cost-effective technology solutions and support that meets the needs of small and medium-sized businesses.
