Feb 4, 2020


As you may be aware, on October 13, 2019, Pilz was hit with a cyberattack.

Pilz chose not to comply with the attacker’s demands because doing so would have rewarded their efforts and financed additional attacks on others. More importantly, we chose to stand strong to guarantee our data and the data of our customers wasn’t further compromised, potentially leaving us vulnerable to future attacks.

As a result, we immediately started a plan to simultaneously protect our customer data and rebuild our network. Because of these actions, we are happy to report that none of our customer data was compromised, however data recovery is still being carried out. 

Read our blog below on how Pilz employees did what it took to best serve our customers and and be stronger than ever for a successful 2020!
