by Team Ninja

In the dynamic world of aviation, precision and reliability are paramount, and Helicopter Engine Repair Overhaul Services (H.E.R.O.S.) stands as an industry leader, offering top-notch maintenance and repair services for helicopter engines. As a crucial player in the aerospace sector, H.E.R.O.S. acknowledges the non-negotiable need to secure its sensitive data and systems from cyber threats. Embracing advanced protection measures and robust data backup capabilities, NinjaOne empowers organizations to navigate the digital landscape confidently, safeguarding critical data and operations from potential disruptions. H.E.R.O.S. and NinjaOne form an unyielding defense, ensuring the skies remain safe and free from digital turbulence. Join us as we delve into the proactive measures adopted by H.E.R.O.S. and explore how NinjaOne Protect and Backup offer unparalleled peace of mind against the ever-looming threat of cyberattacks.

Safeguarding sensitive data in a high-stakes industry

As an integral part of the aviation sector, H.E.R.O.S. manages an extensive repository of sensitive data, including maintenance records, technical specifications, and critical flight data. Protecting this information from malicious actors and potential ransomware attacks was a top priority. A single successful ransomware attack could disrupt operations, compromise vital data, and inflict significant financial and reputational damage. Despite H.E.R.O.S.' efforts to build a robust security portfolio, they encountered a challenging ransomware attack that compromised every level of backup, except for one - NinjaOne.

The solution: NinjaOne Backup and Protect

NinjaOne's Backup and Protect modules offer a multi-layered defense against ransomware and a robust data backup solution that could swiftly recover any encrypted data, minimizing potential downtime and data loss.

The results: A safer future in the skies

The imperviousness of NinjaOne's Backup and Protect provided a ray of hope amidst the chaos, enabling a remarkable recovery that swiftly restored the entire H.E.R.O.S. computer network within four days. This is a stark contrast to the grim statistics often associated with ransomware attacks – where companies can suffer downtime lasting anywhere from 16 to 22 days. The impact of downtime resulting from a ransomware attack on an organization cannot be underestimated. Beyond the immediate chaos and disruption, the consequences reverberate across multiple facets of the business, affecting productivity, revenue, customer trust and long-term viability. As critical systems and data become inaccessible, operations grind to a halt, leaving employees unable to carry out their tasks, customers frustrated by delayed services, and the entire business ecosystem destabilized. Financial losses start to accumulate rapidly, as each moment of inactivity translates into missed opportunities, delayed projects, and potential penalties. Moreover, the reputational damage stemming from an inability to deliver on promises can tarnish the organization's standing in the eyes of clients, partners, and stakeholders. The domino effect of downtime can persist long after systems are restored, underscoring the urgent need for robust cybersecurity measures, such as NinjaOne's comprehensive solutions, to prevent, mitigate and recover from the devastating aftermath of a ransomware attack. This seamless and painless experience exemplified NinjaOne's exceptional capabilities and unwavering dedication to its customers, solidifying its position as the ultimate safeguard for critical data in the aviation industry.
