Data encryption consists in protecting readable information (“clear” data) by converting it into non-readable information for any unauthorized user (“encrypted” data). The conversion process is carried out using an encryption algorithm. A corresponding encryption key is then required to read the original clear data.
It can be hardware encryption (performed by the storage medium) or software encryption (performed by specific software). Several situations can however make it impossible to access encrypted data:
Unintentional manipulation or errors committed during system administration:
Forgetting or making mistakes in adjusting rights, especially in these situations:
In addition, cryptolockers (or crypto-lockers) can infect computer media. This is ransomware, a class of malware that encrypts media data and demands ransom from the user to make it accessible again. The most common are CryptoLocker, Wannacry, Petya…
Data decryption should be considered in the context of a decryption or cryptolocking problem activated by a ransomware.
We have therefore developed within the technologies and skills necessary for recovering encrypted data:
We are able to recover encrypted data on most storage media and by most encryption software: Microsoft Bitlocker Drive Encryption, Symantec EndPoint Encryption (PGP), McAfee Drive Encryption (SafeBoot), CheckPoint EndPoint, Sophos Safeguard, WinMagic Securedoc, TrueCrypt, VeraCrypt…
In the case of software or hardware encryption: the user name, encryption key or password (ATA for a hard disk) are essential.
In the context of a crypto locking: you can declare the claim on the government site against cyber-malware:
The processing of sensitive data
Encryption by definition concerns confidential or sensitive information and involves security concepts. Any unsuccessful decryption attempt that may result in the locking or permanent loss of encrypted data, it is necessary to contact a specialized company as soon as a problem is identified.
In addition to the precautions taken in the context of data recovery, our company brings you the following guarantees:
Safe working environment:
