Following a major cyber attack, ANETYS SUPPORTS LEADER GROUP TO STRENGTHEN CYBER SECURITY POLICY
LEADER GROUP, a victim of unprecedented cyber-attacks in 2021, called on NEXTEDIA (Euronext Growth Paris, FR0004171346 ALNXT), a Cybersecurity expert through its subsidiary ANETYS, to rebuild its network and sustainably strengthen its cybersecurity policy.
A historical customer of ANETYS, GROUPE LEADER suffered a major crypto attack on its network in 2021. Cryptolocker ransomware is a type of malware that restricts access to infected endpoints and servers by encrypting their content.
After a complete shutdown of the computer system and an initial diagnosis to see the damage done and understand the origins of the attack, Anetys managed to mobilize, within 4 hours, a team of experts on their systems, networks and cybersecurity to to intervene in. this critical and very urgent context. In a few days, a dedicated project manager coordinated all security actions: lending of endpoint protection licenses (workstations and client servers) to secure the existing system with a Cortex XDR solution from Palo Alto Networks (world leader in cybersecurity), performing scans to check the status of servers and ensuring that data encryption has been stopped, proposing a strategy to rebuild a brand new infrastructure.
“We have been fortunate to have good internal processes and a reliable partner on our side, an expert in this type of intervention, which has enabled us to avoid the worst. Anetys teams responded in the longest possible time to address this threat and to secure much of our data.
This event provided us with an opportunity to further strengthen ourselves on safety issues. To remedy this kind of threat, we partnered with ANETYS experts as a long – term partnership by relying on them.
implementation and operational management of our cybersecurity. Christophe BENOIST, CIO of the LEADER GROUP, adds
This new phase of the project was broken down into several bricks. Firstly, ANETYS provided suitable equipment for the follow – up to the proposals of the new architecture, in particular the integration of firewalls. ANETYS then secured the deployment of this content and licenses. Today, ANETYS provides management services to maintain machine and data security, limit exposure to vulnerabilities and sustainably support the new internal needs of the LEADER Group.
“We have been working for the past few years with GROUPE LEADER on the Citrix side and on messaging. When this incident happened on their network, the whole company came to a standstill. Without tools, employees are unable to work. It was a very critical situation for the company, a great effort physically and psychologically on everyone. We intervened very quickly to deal with emergencies and allowed them to resume their activity as soon as possible. This cyber-attack sparked a whole company’s real awareness of best practices and increased awareness of the resilience of its data. ANETYS also supported GROUPE LEADER to raise employee awareness of cybersecurity rules in order to limit the risks of future attack. ” Finishes
Xavier GAVARINI, Managing Director at ANETYS
