WorkForce Software announces it has developed a rapid solution to be deployed by companies affected by a recent ransomware attack. This attack on a global workforce management provider has left many organizations without access to critical data and systems, impacting their ability to pay employees on time.
The ransomware attack affected the private cloud service of a global workforce management provider. In an already challenging year, this malicious act places additional hardships on employees and their employers who, through no fault of their own, now find themselves with the added burden of initiating their HR business continuity plans.
This is especially difficult during the holidays when many are focused on spending time with loved ones, giving back to our communities, and recharging for the coming year ahead.
“As a workforce management software provider, WorkForce Software understands the seriousness of this event and the far-reaching impact it has on employers, employees and their families,” says Mike Morini, CEO of WorkForce Software.
“Our WorkForce Software family is united in a desire to help. Without hesitation, we have rallied to deliver this solution to companies that were affected. At this time of the year, no one should be worried about whether or not they will be paid for the work they have done. We are pleased to offer our enterprise-grade option to companies who have been impacted.”
The Rapid Response Team at WorkForce Software has developed a turnkey solution for time, absence, scheduling and pay which can go live in 24 hours for organizations impacted by this event.
This solution will provide essential functionality to create schedules, capture time and absences, and feed data to payroll. WorkForce Software offers this solution at their cost, with an aim to help companies recover as quickly as possible.
