A company that delivers commercial logs and other management solutions for thousands of radio stations said they are once again functioning about a week after a Russian criminal organization hacked its database.

The breach rendered Marketron helpless as the organization called BlackMatter demanded ransom from the company.

“With the assistance of our third-party specialists, a state-of-the-art endpoint detection and response tool has been deployed to the environment, which is continuously monitored around the clock by security professionals,” said Vice President of Growth Marketing Bo Bandy.
