NAS & SAN Data Recovery

SAN environments can incorporate a number of different types of computer hardware, including Network-Attached Storage (NAS) devices and RAID systems where devices communicate using the block-based SCSI protocol over dedicated Fibre Channel or Internet Protocol (IP) network. Because of its many elements, SAN architectures can be quite complex and the more complex the system, the more likely a failure can occur in one component, affecting the entire storage environment.

East African Data Handlers routinely recovers data from:

  • Single or Multiple Disk Failure
  • Failed Software or Operating System Upgrades
  • Mechanical Failure (Clicking, Buzzing)
  • Virus Attack
  • System Crash
  • Accidental Deletion of Data or Reformat of NAS Volume
  • Physical Damage (Fire, Water, Smoke, Etc.)
  • Power Surge Causing Physical or Logical Corruption
  • Data Could Not Be Viewed Due To Security System Failure

The #1 cause of unrecoverable data is due to individuals or technicians attempting data recovery on their own.

NAS is an alternative to a specialized storage area network (SAN). NAS devices are often connected to a shared general purpose local area network, reducing cost overhead, while also reducing access speed. The protocol used with NAS is a file based protocol such as Network File System (NFS) or Microsoft’s Common Internet File System (CIFS).

Most network storage systems contain more than one hard disk drive, often in a RAID configuration and are a computer by itself with its own operating system. Having a hard drive fail or even one the computer components could make it impossible for your IT department to recover the data due to the nonstandard operating system.

Unexpected failure may cause data inaccessibility or even data loss. Often this occurs between data backups or on data that has no backup at all. Utilizing proprietary data recovery technology, our data recovery specialists will recover the data you need in a timely, secure and cost effective manner. We have established a level of expertise in RAID, SAN, and NAS recovery that is unparalleled by even the manufacturers of the systems that we recover data from.

Our combination of custom software and extensive experience means we do not need your hardware or your controller to perform data recovery on your RAID, SAN or NAS storage system. We only need the drives from the sub-system. You can keep the trays, rails, cables and miscellaneous hardware. This allows you to replace the drives and start the rebuild process while we recover the data from the originals. You no longer have to wait to get your equipment back.

East African Data Handlers  offers multiple data recovery service options across Kenya for recovering lost or inaccessible data from NAS & SAN Storage devices. ie Apple, Buffalo, Dell, NetGear, Lacie, Iomega, G-Drive, HP and more.

SSD Data Recovery

Solid state drives (SSDs) offer a bevy of benefits over traditional hard disk drives (HDDs). The primary advantage of SSDs is that they use nonvolatile memory chips that improve performance and loading speed. They use less energy and are more compact, making them perfect for laptops and mobile devices that require more lightweight storage options. What’s more, SSDs differ from HDDs in that they do not have an actuator arm that writes data onto a spinning disk. This absence of moving mechanical parts decreases the likelihood of damaging the drive or disrupting data reading and writing when using storage devices in transit.

That being said, many SSD users assume their SSDs are more reliable than HDDs because their lack of moving parts should theoretically mean less opportunity on the whole for something to go wrong. Unfortunately, this is incorrect.

While SSDs have rightly earned their reputation for high-speed performance, they are not infallible. In fact, generally speaking, the longevity of an SSD seems to be pretty on par with that of an HDD. In other words, despite their many advantages, SSDs are still susceptible to memory deterioration and physical faults. Flash memory wears out over time, while capacitors, power supply, and controller chips all make SSDs prone to electrical failures.

For this reason, it’s crucial for MSPs to understand that SSDs can fail and prepare themselves with adequate precautionary measures to help customers avoid data loss. The bottom line is that SSD death can be unpredictable and unavoidable in some cases, which is why it’s best to learn about preemptive measures and SSD data recovery well in advance of a potential failure.

Through our Recovery products and services, East African Data Handlers can help clients understand and manage the challenges associated with Solid State Drive Data Recovery. ie Kingston, Samsung, WD Black & Black SSD etc.

Raid Data Recovery

Having problems with your RAID 0-6 array?

Does the battery or power issue lead to RAID failure? Damaged RAID’s controller? RAID logical volume was formatted? RAID Volume inaccessible? RAID disk not recognized? Need to repair software or hardware RAID? Is one of the RAID’s disk dead?

Very likely that your precious files are at high risk. Are you afraid of the complete loss of your data?

At East African Data Handlers we use advanced data recovery tools and techniques to repair, recover and rebuild inaccessible data from all types of RAID systems ie Raid 1, Raid 0, Raid 5, Raid 6, Raid 10 etc

Ransomware Attack Data Recovery

You’re working on your computer and you notice that it seems slower. Or perhaps you can’t access document or media files that were previously available.

You might be getting error messages from Windows telling you that a file is of an “Unknown file type” or “Windows can’t open this file.”

If you’re on a Mac, you might see the message “No associated application,” or “There is no application set to open the document.”

Another possibility is that you’re completely locked out of your system. If you’re in an office, you might be looking around and seeing that other people are experiencing the same problem. Some are already locked out, and others are just now wondering what’s going on, just as you are.

Then you see a message confirming your fears.

You’ve been infected with ransomware.

Attacked by Ransomware and can’t access your files? Don’t worry, We perform ransomware virus recovery service on any Ransomware family: WannaCry, Jigsaw, CryptoLocker etc  we are the best solution provider in ransomware virus recovery from any Server, PC.

Cyber Security

What is Cyber Security?

Cyber security is the practice of defending computers, servers, mobile devices, electronic systems, networks, and data from malicious attacks. It’s also known as information technology security or electronic information security. The term applies in a variety of contexts, from business to mobile computing, and can be divided into a few common categories.

  • Network security is the practice of securing a computer network from intruders, whether targeted attackers or opportunistic malware.
  • Application security focuses on keeping software and devices free of threats. A compromised application could provide access to the data its designed to protect. Successful security begins in the design stage, well before a program or device is deployed.
  • Information security protects the integrity and privacy of data, both in storage and in transit.
  • Operational security includes the processes and decisions for handling and protecting data assets. The permissions users have when accessing a network and the procedures that determine how and where data may be stored or shared all fall under this umbrella.
  • Disaster recovery and business continuity define how an organization responds to a cyber-security incident or any other event that causes the loss of operations or data. Disaster recovery policies dictate how the organization restores its operations and information to return to the same operating capacity as before the event. Business continuity is the plan the organization falls back on while trying to operate without certain resources.
  • End-user education addresses the most unpredictable cyber-security factor: people. Anyone can accidentally introduce a virus to an otherwise secure system by failing to follow good security practices. Teaching users to delete suspicious email attachments, not plug in unidentified USB drives, and various other important lessons is vital for the security of any organization.

Cyber attacks have become common, that’s why we provide managed security services that help companies detect & respond to threats and breaches. Talk to our cyber security experts today to defend your systems & data from attacks.

Digital Forensics

What is Digital Forensics?

Digital Forensics is defined as the process of preservation, identification, extraction, and documentation of computer evidence which can be used by the court of law. It is a science of finding evidence from digital media like a computer, mobile phone, server, or network. It provides the forensic team with the best techniques and tools to solve complicated digital-related cases.

Cloud and Data Backup

What is cloud backup and how does it work?

Cloud backup, also known as online backup or remote backup, is a strategy for sending a copy of a physical or virtual file or database to a secondary, off-site location for preservation in case of equipment failure or catastrophe. The secondary server and storage systems are usually hosted by a third-party service provider, who charges the backup customer a fee based on storage space or capacity used, data transmission bandwidth, number of users, number of servers or number of times data is accessed.

Implementing cloud data backup can help bolster an organization’s data protection strategy without increasing the workload of information technology (IT) staff. The labor-saving benefit may be significant and enough of a consideration to offset some of the additional costs associated with cloud backup, such as data transmission charges.

We provide a cloud based backup and recovery solution in Kenya that provides SMEs, Private Companies, Government Institution and even Individuals with offsite backup solution.

Kenya Data recovery

Kenya Data Recovery

What is Data recovery?

Kenya Data Recovery plays a big role in Kenya business industry to help companies resolve data disaster occurence. So, do you understand what it means to do data recovery?  Do you have lost data or have data files that are corrupted ? Are you looking for Data recovery  experts? Do you have raid drives and and  in urgent need of raid recovery?

Are you stranded looking for a reliable Data Recovery Experts company in Kenya, Dar es Salaam Tanzania , Kampala Uganda and  Kigali Rwanda? Do you know we also do  Data recovery Sudan

In computing, data recovery is a process of salvaging (retrieving) inaccessible, lost, formatted or corrupted data from secondary storage, data files or removable media, when the data stored in them cannot be accessed in a normal way. The data is most often salvaged from storage media such as internal or external hard disk drives (HDDs), solid- state drives (SSDs), USB flash drives, magnetic tapes, CDs, DVDs, RAID subsystem, and other electronic devices.

Recovery may be required due to physical damage to the storage devices or logical damage to the file system that prevent it from being mounted by the most operating system (OS).

The most common data recovery scenario involves an operating system failure, malfunction of a storage devices, accidental damage or deletion, etc. (typically, on a single-drive, single-partition, single-OS system), in which case the ultimate goal is simply to copy all important files from the damaged to another new drive. This can be easily accomplished using a live CD or DVD by booting directly from a ROM instead of the corrupted drive in question.

Many live CDs or DVDs provide a means to mount the system drive and backup drives or removable media, and to move the files from the system drive to the backup media with a file manager or optical disc authoring software. Such cases can often be mitigate by disk partitioning and consistently storing valuable data files (or copies of them) on different partition from replaceable OS system files.

Another scenario involves a drive-level failure, such as a compromised file system or drive partition, or a hard disk drive failure. In any of these cases, the data is not easily read from the media devices.

Depending on the situation, solutions involve repairing the logical file system, partition or the master boot record, or updating the firmware or drive recovery techniques ranging from software-based recovery or corrupted data, hardware and software-based recovery of damaged service areas (also known as hard disk drives “firmware”), to hardware replacement on a physically damaged drive which allow for extraction of data files to a new drive. If a drive recovery is necessary, the drive itself has typically failed permanently, and the focus is rather on a one time recovery, salvaging whatever data can be read.

The term “data recovery” is also used in the context of forensic applications, where data which has been encrypted or hidden, rather than damaged, are recovered. Sometimes data files present in the computer get encrypted or hidden due to reasons like virus attack which only be recovered by computer forensic experts.

Top 5 Causes of Android Data loss –

Top 5 Causes of Android Data Loss – Android Data Recovery

Android smart phone is one of the most marvelous handheld devices on the planet. It takes pictures, surfs the net and keeps you in touch with all your friends and acquaintances. But, what happens if your marvelous wonder machine loses all your data? Phone numbers that no one bothers to remember anymore or the pictures you just tool of your child’s first steps. It can all be gone in an instant and today we will talk about top 5 causes of Android data loss how you can lost everything.

You can lose your Android device through a number of mishaps such as dropping it into a lake, river or pond. It could be stolen or it just may fall out of your pocket at the train station, bus stop and checkout counter at your local supermarket.

Cause 3: Human error

Sorry to say most data is lost by accident when someone deletes it by mistake. You mean to delete one item and you chose the wrong one in error. Now you are missing a vital phone number or a special picture that is very precious to you and your memories. This is probably the most common occurrence that cases Android data loss.

Cause 4: Jailbreak

Some attempt to get more out of their Android and they go to see their local Android teachs. These individuals can unlock features that you might never have been aware of before you visit them. However, one of the side effects is that all your data can vanish as a result.

Cause 5: Replacing the battery

Believe it or not, a simple thing such as replacing your battery can cause your Android phone to lose all of your personal information and you have to start all over again as in some instances it resets the Android back to its original factory settings.

How to prevent Locky ransomware

How to prevent Locky ransomware

Remember that preventing Locky and extortion-ware like it is simply a matter of user discipline and an awareness of how malware can be contracted. The first consideration for stopping infections is to maintain an up-to-date system. This includes operating system security patches and ensuring that you’re using the latest version of your browser; place browser settings to their highest that still allow access required and warn of hazardous ‘site content. Disallow all add-ons, plugins and extensions. Install a good firewall that will cover ALL routes – including remote and networking connections; set this to disallow communication on Tor and I2P networks (so that if a trojan does gain entry, it cannot communicate and execute), block unauthorized port use. Get the best security software possible that will carry out in-depth scans. For good measure, make backups as regularly as possible to external storage.

lockyvirus

The next consideration is settings, or privilege. On a network of any size – family or business – do not use the Administrator log-in for general use, or stay logged-in for longer than necessary in this capacity. It’s safer to give the username/password to everyone who may need it with the instructions to log-off when a task is completed. Allow strictest Admin privileges that still enable the network to function (see the Microsoft website for more detail on this).

lockyvirus2

The easiest element of prevention is good working practice – though perhaps this is sometimes the most difficult to enforce or adhere to. Bear in mind the delivery routes mentioned above. In the case of the e-mail delivery threat, depending on a system, set ‘mail to highest security. Ensure that all users are aware of the risks of opening unsolicited ‘mail. Disallow ActiveX (macro) function for all Microsoft Office applications. Find a method to filter incoming containing attachments and preview if neccessary by left-clicking and viewing Source in Properties which will supply the body of the text and display any hidden attachments without actually opening the file (DO NOT preview in Print Preview, as this can execute some malware).
Stay organized and up-to-date – don’t let this current threat know your business!

Data Disaster Recovery Plan

Data Disaster Recovery Plan

Did you know that no organization looks forward to the day they implement their Data Disaster Recovery Plan. But like any good insurance policy, Data Disaster Recovery Plan is an essential component of business continuity and preservation.

Am sure most people understand that much or have an idea. Where organizations often fall short, however, is the details and preparation. The only thing worse than having no plan at all is not going through the proper research and review prior to the event that takes you offline.

Point of advice , don’t find yourself stuck like the character ” Kamau” as illustrated in the image. Get your facts right! and start the process now while keeping in mind these six, baseline items:

1 – Identify and plan for your most critical assets.

Because of the high resource requirements of a good Data Disaster Recovery Plan, focus only on the processes and applications that are most crucial to your business while you restore normal operations. For many companies, those may be customer-facing applications and systems like e-commerce sites or portals. Applications like email, while important, may take a secondary position, and systems for internal use only – like HR or accounting applications – may fill out a third tier.

2 – Determine RPO/RTO.

The Recovery Point Objective (RPO) is the maximum amount of time your business can tolerate between data backups. If your RPO is one day, that means you can survive losing one day’s worth of data, but no more. Your Recovery Time Objective (RTO), on the other hand, is the target for restoring regular service after the disaster strikes. Neither metric is arbitrary, and you’ll likely have to crunch a lot of numbers and coordinate with virtually every business unit to determine the most accurate objectives.

3 – Scope out the technical mechanics.

The hybrid era of IT, for all its benefits, only makes Data Disaster Recovery Plan planning more difficult. Critical business processes and applications exist in a complex web of interdependencies. You’ll have to map relationships across server, storage and network infrastructure and develop accurate scripts to ensure apps function like they’re supposed to in the recovery environment.

4 – Select an appropriate failover site.

Traditional Data Disaster Recovery Plan requires redundant infrastructure in which to failover. Not only is this pricey, you have to choose a site that makes sense geographically (i.e. – low odds of being affected by same event) and offers an SLA that’s up to your current standards.

5 – Take advantage of the cloud.

For many organizations, designing a robust Data Disaster Recovery Plan is significantly impeded due to extremely high cost and resource requirements. Data Disaster Recovery Plan as a Service (DRaaS), however, is a cloud-based solution that eliminates the heavy capital expense, putting Disaster Recovery within reach of companies unable to acquire the redundant infrastructure needed to restore service. EADH offers a comprehensive DRaaS solution for hosted private cloud customers that includes seamless failover and failback, an RPO within seconds, and an RTO within minutes.

6 – Document, Test, Refine.

This is the hat trick of ensuring effective execution. Each of these components is critical. Your plan needs to be specific and detailed. Plans, procedures, responsibilities and check lists should be clearly documented. You want your team to have clear marching orders and leave little to interpretation in the middle of a crisis.

Call us now and dont be a victim of disaster like Kamau and you are hit when least expecting with a huge cost waiting for you only if he had a Data Disaster Recovery Plan.

Data Recovery – Avoid this and recover your data

Data Recovery – Avoid this and recover your data

After losing some very important information on your computer, laptop or even the server of your organization, there are some things that should be avoided completely. They are as follows:

In case you do not know what to do at all after you have lost the deleted files, DO NOT PANIC!! Panic is one of the greatest enemies of data recovery. In extreme cases, panic can cause company closure. This is how: if someone panics and begins telling everybody in the organization that data has been lost, word may leak out and clients may get to know about it and then the reputation of company will be spoilt. After data loss the best thing is to report to the relevant authorities like the ICT manager who should eventually consult a data recovery company so that they give the necessary guidance on how to try and retrieve your data before doing a whole lot of damage. They have the necessary skill and technology needed for recovering your data.

Another thing you should never do after noticing that your data is missing is to run and install software. This can be very detrimental to your data because it may lead to permanent data loss. Since you don’t know what the specific problem is, do not install or even save any programs, files or software. Storing more information in a hard drive that is failing may cause overwriting of information on it and this is as good as permanently deleting your data.

In relation to this, you should avoid running utility programs. If it is really necessary for you to do so then make sure you have an IT specialist with you because if you don’t run them correctly, you could lose your data permanently. Some of these utility programs are like scandisk, chckdisk and Norton disk doctor. They should be run with extreme caution.

But if your hard drive has already failed you can get affordable data recovery services.

Data Recovery Services – Choose wisely

Reliable data recovery services

When looking for reliable data recovery services there are some things you should look for. Not all data recovery experts are genuine. There are others who will mess up your hard drive and will then tell you that the data is unrecoverable. To avoid such situations you can check the data recovery services company for the following:
Get to know the methods and technology being used to perform the recovery services. Making a visit to the premises where the recovery is done would be good so that you can see some of the tools, technology and software being used. You can be able to judge whether the technology is up-to-date or outdated. Some things you may ask are: Is the equipment being used a reflection current technology? What is the general environmental condition of the data recovery area? It would also be good to inquire on the methods to be used to recover data and some small explanation. This will help in making proper judgments about the company.

It would be good to get some general procedures and background information on data recovery. Have one of the experts give a general explanation of the process. Most companies should give that description but there are some corporate secrets that they may never tell. Ask as many questions as possible to gauge the competency of the recovery experts. Having some insight on what takes place during the data recovery process may help one judge the competencies of a certain data recovery company.

Also, check for qualifications. These qualifications include license certificates, certificates of operation and also tax compliant certificates. This helps in getting to know the genuineness of the company e.g. it would be good to know the minimum standards a company should have attained before having be fully declared as a data recovery company.
