Discover the answers to your most pressing questions about Nubeva Ransomware Reversal.  We breakdown ransomware basics, where Ransomware Reversal fits in the overall technology landscape, how the solution works, and why you need it now to reduce your ransomware risk and improve data resilience when you need it most.

What is Ransomware?

Ransomware, a dangerous form of malicious software, encrypts the victim's data and demands payment for decryption. The outcome of these attacks leads to significant data loss, financial damage, and reputational harm. Skilled threat actors behind ransomware attacks employ various tactics to infiltrate networks, maximize disruption, and threaten victims by permanently deleting or exposing sensitive information. The primary goal of ransomware is to extort money from victims, often by threatening to permanently delete or leak sensitive data if the ransom isn't paid.  In the ever-evolving digital landscape, ransomware continues to pose a serious and growing risk for individuals and organizations, making cybersecurity measures and data resilience crucial for protecting against these devastating cyber threats.

What is Nubeva Ransomware Reversal?

Nubeva Ransomware Reversal is a cutting-edge enterprise software solution that provides technical 'insurance' against ransomware attacks. By quickly identifying ransomware encryption and capturing the encryption keys, our solution enables fast, easy recovery with minimal data loss - without paying the ransom. Unlike traditional disaster recovery solutions, Ransomware Reversal is specifically designed to mitigate the worst effects of a ransomware attack, minimizing business disruptions and losses.

What Problems Does Ransomware Reversal Address?


Ransomware Reversal addresses the problems of downtime, excessive business interruption, and permanent data loss caused by ransomware attacks, enabling faster recovery and dramatically reducing business damages, losses, and associated costs.


Ransomware has been categorized as a national security threat in the United States and is a threat felt around the world. The volume of ransomware attacks continues to accelerate, and the threat actors are increasingly successful at evading security systems and finding or creating holes in backup and data resilience systems to exploit organizations.


Recovery from a ransomware event is very ugly, leading to grim statistics:

  • 65% pay ransoms, depending on criminals for your success

  • 80% of cases have some permanent data loss

  • 21 days average downtime

  • 90 days total disruption time 

The impact organizations experience includes but is not limited to:

  • Revenue and customers
  • Productivity
  • Partners and supply chains
  • Brand and reputation
  • Regulatory and legal
  • Response and remediation
  • Employee and CXO Departures

Nubeva’s Ransomware Reversal solution allows organizations to decrypt ransomware without paying. As a result, it significantly reduces business interruption damages, losses, and impact from ransomware attacks. 

Why Does My Organization Need Ransomware Reversal?


Ransomware Reversal solves the downtime and disruption damages caused by ransomware, the #1 driver to paying ransoms. By using Ransomware Reversal, you can protect your business from the potentially catastrophic effects of a ransomware attack. Whether your organization has a mature program or is getting by with the basics of cyber-security and backup solutions, Ransomware Reversal is a vital layer that can be installed in a matter of hours to provide additional protection. It gives peace of mind that you have a powerful tool at your disposal to minimize an attack and get your business back up and running as quickly as possible.


Nubeva’s Ransomware Reversal solution allows organizations to decrypt ransomware without paying. As a result, it significantly reduces business interruption damages, losses, and impact from ransomware attacks. 

How does Nubeva Ransomware Reversal work?

Nubeva Ransomware Reversal is deployed as a passive service agent to detect untrusted file encryptions used by ransomware. When detected, these Nubeva Sensors intercept copies of the symmetric keys used to encrypt files. The captured cryptographic keys are stored in a secure location. With the decryption keys available, decryption is not only possible but straightforward. Nubeva will provide decryptors and white glove support to assist IT teams in data recovery.

Nubeva Ransomware Reversal is the only patented and proven technology to decrypt virtually all modern ransomware. Unlike other companies that claim to offer similar solutions, Nubeva Ransomware Reversal is actively used in live ransomware events and has a positive track record of successfully decrypting modern ransomware without paying ransoms.

Why Is Decryption a Good Option for Recovering From Ransomware?

Decryption is a highly effective way to restore data and systems following a ransomware attack. It provides a fast, efficient, and lossless way to recover quickly and accurately, restoring data and systems to the point of attack without any data loss or downtime.


However, in most cases, the only way to decrypt ransomware-encrypted data has been to pay ransoms to attackers. This is a major challenge for organizations because it involves significant financial costs and promotes and supports cybercrime. Moreover, paying ransoms does not always guarantee the return of the encrypted data or ensure that the decryption process will not introduce new vulnerabilities into the system.


Fortunately, Nubeva's Ransomware Reversal provides a unique solution to this challenge. It is designed to enable organizations to quickly and effectively reverse ransomware encryption. Nubeva is the only option to decrypt “at large” ransomware that doesn't require paying a ransom

How is Decryption with Nubeva Better than Paying the Ransom to Decrypt?

Paying ransoms for decryption is not a reliable or safe solution when dealing with ransomware attacks. Here's why:

  • Legal Compliance: Paying ransoms can put you in violation of various laws and regulations, including recent warnings from the US Department of Treasury. Ransomware Reversal can help you recover your data and systems without breaking the law.
  • No Guarantee of Recovery: There is no guarantee that paying a ransom will result in the successful decryption of your data and systems. Many businesses that pay ransoms do not receive the promised decryption key or receive a key that does not work or come to find that the data has been corrupted. Ransomware Reversal ensures that your data and systems will be successfully decrypted and restored.
  • Encourages Criminal Activity: Paying ransoms provides a financial incentive for attackers to continue their operations, contributing to the cycle of criminal activity. By using Ransomware Reversal, you are taking a proactive approach to defending your business against ransomware attacks.
  • Cost: Paying ransoms can be expensive, and there is no guarantee that attackers will honor their promise to provide the decryption key. With Ransomware Reversal, you can avoid the cost of paying a ransom and instead recover your data and systems quickly and effectively.

In summary, Ransomware Reversal is a better alternative to paying ransoms, providing a proactive and reliable solution that safeguards your business against the risks of ransomware attacks.

Why Do We Need Ransomware Reversal if We have Backups, Snapshots, and Other Data Resilience Solutions?

Having backups, snapshots, and immutable storage are critical components of disaster recovery plans to protect against ransomware attacks. These solutions have gaps that ransomware attackers are increasingly good at exploiting. They may disable backups, corrupt or encrypt snapshot data, or delete the backups, leaving organizations with no recourse for data recovery.  


Nubeva Ransomware Reversal provides a faster and more reliable way to recover data than restoring from backups or snapshots, which can take days and even weeks and may not capture the latest changes to data.


Decrypting data with Nubeva Ransomware Reversal can restore the latest version of the data in minutes or even seconds, minimizing data loss and downtime. In addition, Nubeva Ransomware Reversal preserves the integrity of the original files, ensuring that data is not lost or corrupted. By incorporating Nubeva Ransomware Reversal into existing backup and recovery strategies, organizations can increase their chances of successfully recovering from ransomware attacks without paying ransoms.

Why Do We Need Ransomware Reversal if We Have an EDR, Next-Gen Firewall, Endpoint Protection, etc?

Multi-layered security is critical for organizations, but modern ransomware attacks are becoming more sophisticated and are designed to evade traditional security technologies. It is safe to say 99.999% of ransomware victims had some cyber-security in place. There are several factors to consider:

  • Attackers use a variety of tactics to gain access to a victim's network, including purchasing access from a broker or other third-party provider. Once inside the network, they can remain undetected for days, weeks, or even months before launching a ransomware attack. During this time, they can locate and create backup gaps to maximize the disruption and downtime of a business.
  • The volume and sophistication of attacks continue to make even the most protected organizations vulnerable.
  • Not all organizations have the staff or budget to maintain, upgrade or procure top-of-the-line products.
  • No technology is 100%, and human error always exists.

While next-generation firewalls, antivirus, anti-malware, EDR, NDR, XDR, and other security technologies are essential components of a comprehensive security strategy, they may not be sufficient to protect your business from modern ransomware attacks.


This is where Nubeva's Ransomware Reversal comes in, providing a solution that enables fast, efficient, and lossless recovery from ransomware attacks via decryption.

Why Do We Need Nubeva if We Have Cyber Insurance?

Cyber insurance protects an organization from the financial consequences of a ransomware attack but does not assist with getting organizations back online. Cyber insurance may cover costs such as ransom payments, data recovery, incident response fees, legal fees etc, but secondary costs associated with downtime, loss of customers, brand damage, and lost revenues may not be covered.

Overall, while cyber insurance is an important component of a comprehensive security strategy, it may not be sufficient to protect your business from the full impact of a ransomware attack. By adding Nubeva Ransomware Reversal to your security strategy, you can enhance your protection and quickly recover from ransomware reducing these damages.

What is the ROI for Ransomware Reversal?

Nubeva's Ransomware Reversal has a compelling ROI argument. Most of the cost associated with a ransomware attack comes from downtime and associated business damage, up to 10x the cost of the ransom itself. The number 1 goal after an attack is to get business operations back online as quickly and completely as possible. 


With Nubeva’s innovative pricing options, organizations of all sizes should be able to deploy Nubeva within budget.  By reducing downtime and minimizing data loss, Nubeva's Ransomware Reversal can help organizations avoid the significant financial and reputational costs associated with a ransomware attack.

Do We Need to Deploy Nubeva Before an Attack?

Yes, Nubeva's Ransomware Reversal is a proactive solution to intercept encryption keys during ransomware attacks. Nubeva sensors deployed on endpoints continuously monitor for untrusted encryption. In the event of a ransomware attack, the sensors quickly intercept the encryption keys and securely store them for decryption. Nubeva Ransomware Reversal has a success rate of up to 99%.


Nubeva also offers advanced decryption solutions that can assist victims in recovery without sensor installation; however, the proactive solution is more effective. If experiencing a ransomware attack,  it's important to contact Nubeva's support team at support@nubeva.com as soon as possible after the event. The earlier Nubeva can intervene, the better the chances of a successful recovery.

What Does Implementation and Operations Look Like?

Nubeva Ransomware Reversal is a straightforward, easy-to-use solution that can be implemented and operated quickly. The backend runs in a customer's private AWS or Azure subscription and can be fully set up and integrated in less than an hour. Sensors can be deployed using any standard method for installing software on endpoints, so they can be deployed in less than a day, and they are automatically updated via Nubeva's global, redundant update servers.

Operation is also straightforward, with no rules to manage or events to research. Nubeva Ransomware Reversal is a ransomware disaster recovery system, which means that all a company needs to do is ensure it is running using standard corporate software management tools.

When Googling “Decrypt Ransomware,” Many Solutions Come Up; How is Ransomware Reversal Different?

There are several “ransomware decryption” solutions, but they differ significantly in their effectiveness and reliability.

  • Public Decryptors: One option is public decryptors, which can be found on resource sites like nomoreransom.org, a great organization. However, these are typically only available for older or less sophisticated ransomware strains, where flaws have been found, or where law enforcement has obtained private (master) keys. However, new threat actors can quickly create new ransomware strains with different keys, limiting the value of public decryptors.
  • Ransomware Protection Companies: A few startups claim to have "key capture" and decryption capabilities similar to Nubeva, but their technology often relies on trivial techniques and fails to show efficacy against the newest and most lethal ransomware strains causing the most damage.
  • Incident Response/Disaster Recovery Firms: Finally, many consulting firms offer ransomware decryption services or incident response and system recovery services. While some may be legitimate, it is important to ask providers to prove their capability live, on real samples that you (not them) pull off the internet, to avoid scams or bait-and-switch offerings. Nubeva frequently works with/partners with IR firms.
