E-Commerce Solutions by Canucks Inc
Like many companies, E-Commerce Solutions by Canucks Inc (ESC) knew about hackers but had never experienced an attack first hand.. That all changed when John MacDonald, the President/CEO of ESC realized that someone had hacked into his site, literally shutting it down.
John’s immediate challenge was getting his website, an integral part of his e-Commerce business up and running just as it was pre-hack.
A few months ago, before John made the decision to back up his data with Stage2Data this attack would have been a serious problem. He would have been left with a compromised website and no data backed up to get it up and running again.
The good news is that John did have Stage2Data and their powerful data backup software at his fingertips. According to John getting his files back to where they were pre-attack was simple. All he had to do was log into the Stage2Data software and restore the files to the day before the attack. John reports that the entire process was straightforward, leaving him to only “click, click, click” to get back where he was. The restore process was so simple he did not even need to call Tech Support.
The end result? Hackers zero. ESC one.
And what’s next for John? For one, he’s talking to his customers about using Stage2Data, reminding them that the free data backup many are using will not give them the restore functions he was glad to have after his data loss. John’s also looking into backing up the laptop where he keeps all of his financial data. He’s had a brush with serious data loss and he wants to ensure that his whole company is safe, secure and easy to back up in the case of another hacker or loss.
