Password recovery is the process of identifying a lost, destroyed, or otherwise inaccessible password, allowing for the successful decryption of key files. This can be a crucial service to consider when you’ve lost important databases, spreadsheets, documents, and other files due to encryption.
As a leader in cryptography solutions, Seagate Data Recovery offers experienced password recovery for all types of computer systems. Within days, we can restore missing passwords or decrypt files completely, returning mission-critical systems to their original state.
With superior security and state-of-the-art technology, we provide the resources you need to get files back up and running.
When data is inaccessible due to a lost or intentionally hidden password, several recovery options exist.
In many instances, password recovery engineers can refine standard heuristical rules to run through likely solutions or use parts of remembered passwords to construct a more effective model. This is completed via a detailed audit, which identifies likely components of the password (and just as importantly, unlikely components of the password).
When a program uses hashing to store a password, additional options may exist. In encryption, hashing is a security method that condenses a message into a fixed-length value, and it’s commonly used to store passwords. Hashed passwords are difficult to obtain, but certain hashing methods can be reversed by trained engineers. Specialized hardware allows our team to input anywhere from 10,000 to 40 trillion hashes per second.
Seagate Data Recovery’s experts have a working knowledge of various encryption and hashing technologies and can complete specialized audits to optimize the chances of a successful effort.
We can help you determine the best solution for your case by evaluating the methods used to secure the data. Throughout the process, we use verified security controls to keep your data from falling into the wrong hands, ensuring that unauthorized parties never gain access to your files or the recovered passwords.
