How a European Construction Supplier Repels Ransomware, Rebuilds Security Defenses

SIG is a publicly traded supplier of specialist building products and solutions to commercial customers across the UK, France, Germany, Ireland, Poland and Benelux, and has 6,500 employees spread across 425 locations.

SIG, a leading European building solutions provider, had just started to deploy CrowdStrike across its France-based business, when in the early hours of a Friday morning a GandCrab ransomware attack struck over 600 devices. The company was forced to shut down its entire French operation, a part of the business that accounts for almost 30% of total revenues. Thankfully, two devices were protected because they had CrowdStrike installed, and this was key to ultimately defeating the attack.

“We are a committed Falcon Complete customer but have benefited from our partnership with CrowdStrike far beyond the technology.”
