In today’s world, consumers and businesses alike require consistent and easy access to their data. Whether it’s large customer databases that an organization relies on for daily operations, highly confidential and sensitive information that flows through government, healthcare or manufacturing sectors, or irreplaceable photos and videos stored on mobile devices, any disruption of access could be catastrophic.
A comprehensive data recovery plan should be as integral a part of business operations as backup systems, disaster recovery protocols, and cybersecurity strategies. The media used by businesses to store, process and transfer endless numbers of files each day are prone to any number of integrity threats. Manufacturing flaws, accidents, natural catastrophes, and targeted cyberattacks can all contribute to storage failures and data loss.
Secure Data Recovery Services has built its reputation on the premise that the first call is the most important when data loss strikes. Any delay can mean the difference between partial or total loss of business-critical data. Given the sophistication of modern business network systems, servers, RAID arrays and virtual drives, companies need a specialist with the credentials, experience, and utilities to meet any data loss challenge. The future of a business, quite literally, can depend on it.
Data Recovery Requires Trust
Enlisting the support of a data recovery specialist requires turning over critical business data, proprietary information, sensitive customer records, intellectual property and even highly confidential trade secrets. Data recovery clients must be confident that their data will be handled and processed with discretion and professionalism.
For over a decade, Secure Data Recovery has built a reputation globally as a trusted partner for businesses across North America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and South America. We have driven innovation in both data recovery and digital forensics services by the quality and extent of our services and the technical sophistication and security of our laboratory facilities.
To better serve our clients, Secure Data Recovery has forged partnerships with all leading manufacturers. These include, but are not limited to, Apple, Microsoft, VMWare, Oracle, Western Digital, and LSI. Secure Data Recovery engineers adopt a case-specific approach to each data loss scenario. If our existing toolsets don’t apply, we create custom utilities to ensure the best possible chance of successful recovery.
Setting a New Standard for Data Security
Reputation is one thing. Highly verified expertise is another. Secure Data Recovery prides itself on the fact that its data recovery engineers are the most credentialed in the industry. Our certifications cover the full range of services we provide, from the safe handling of media upon arrival to our labs, through diagnostic testing, recovery and repair, to the safe and secure return of data on storage media that has the most sophisticated security features available.
Secure Data Recovery was the first service provider in the United States to achieve successful SSAE 18 SOC 1, 2, and 3 audits, which attest to the security and confidentiality of our operations. Our engineers also conduct all diagnostic and recovery services in a certified Class 10 ISO Cleanroom. This specialized environment sues state-of-the-art filtration to eliminate potentially harmful particulates that could further damage already compromised storage media.
In addition to safe handling and extraction protocols, Secure Data Recovery is FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validated to ensure that business data is secure from the start of data recovery services to completion and the return of restored data. Secure Data Recovery has offices and partners all over the world, along with cutting-edge recovery labs in North America. FIPS validation ensures that data in transit will remain secure and safe from unauthorized access in the event of loss or theft.
Unrivaled Expertise in All Data Loss Scenarios
Secure Data Recovery’s manufacturer partnerships are built on the intimate product knowledge our engineers have acquired. We maintain dedicated research and development teams to explore new and more effective methods for safe data extraction. Our specialized services include data recovery for internal and external HDD and SSD devices, as well as removable memory cards, iPhone and Android mobile phones.
Our data recovery engineers also provide comprehensive enterprise solutions for data tape failures or data conversions, RAID failures and rebuilds, remote data recovery and encrypted data recovery services. Secure Data Recovery delivers exceptional results while maintaining data security and significantly reducing costly downtime.
As a member of the GSA contractor schedule and a CAGE Code-registered business, Secure Data Recovery has also provided critical support for government agencies, the military, and government contractors. Services include data restoration and repair of optical drives and virtual machines, computer forensics, electronic discovery, and other advanced media services.
Every Secure Data Recovery customer receives a free diagnostic analysis that clearly identifies the data loss issue, the cost of recovery or repair, and the required time frame for the successful return of their data. We have a documented 96 percent successful recovery rate, but if data proves to be unrecoverable, then our customers pay nothing. Our data recovery experts have repeatedly demonstrated that there is no data loss scenario, including catastrophic fire and water damage, that they cannot successfully resolve.
Prepare for Data Loss before It Strikes
Making sure business-critical data is safe and secure requires preparing for the worst-case scenario. To ensure the continuity of business operations, data security strategies should include recovery options. Delays can mean longer downtime, revenue loss, and a greater likelihood that lost or inaccessible data will be permanently destroyed.
Secure Data Recovery’s specialists continue to develop new tools and strategies to meet current and emerging data loss scenarios. As technology evolves and storage media grows increasingly sophisticated, we look forward to continuing our tradition of providing cutting-edge solutions to the most challenging data loss cases.
