SalvageData's certified data recovery experts can help recover encrypted data or hidden partitions on a variety of PCs, laptops, and servers. We use in-house developed software to quickly break low-grade encryption like that included on Windows-based PCs. We can also quickly break encryption on ZIP or RAR archives. Whether your needs are legal, for eDiscovery or forensic data recovery, or personal, in case you've lost your encryption password, SalvageData can help.
Encryption is the process of altering information, using an algorithm to make it unreadable to anyone except those possessing access privilege, typically with the use of a key. The reverse process, transforming unreadable information into readable, is called decryption. The primary goal of encryption is to protect data confidentiality or integrity. Encryption standards are widely available, and many of the cipher methods are public knowledge. Our cryptoanalysis specialists can identify the level of encryption used on a particular device and the likelihood of breaking the encryption within minutes.
The public nature of cryptography standards often means that a single system design or implementation error can allow encrypted data to be recovered by trained professionals. In other cases, the unencrypted information can be obtained without directly breaking the encryption. Our team of experts use every available method to recovery encrypted data, even that protected by government-standard levels of encryption. Though some encryptions are impossible to break, the human factor often creates vulnerabilities like weak passwords, unencrypted data stored in buffers, or copies of unencrypted data in other parts of the drive. In some cases, however, encryption is broken by a brute force algorithm.
Some encrypted data is simply unrecoverable. Though our experts will do their best to recover encrypted data, there is the potential that data can't be recovered from a drive encrypted with 128-bit or higher encryption standards, as our decryption methods can take hundreds or thousands of years to complete.
