In the current era, mobile device such as smartphone have become a necessity in our daily life. We will use it in our business, keep in touch with family and store our precious moment. It brings convenient to our life and it hold most of our personal information. Due to the concern of data privacy, encryption is used by most of the company to protect the user data. Because of that, the complexity of recovery has been increased over the year. So, where does the data store? And how it increases the complexity of data recovery?
Is a NAND flash memory chip or we call flash memory. It is small and attached to circuit board. Large amount of data can be stored in this eMMC. It was designed to use as internal or main storage in portable devices such as mobile phone, table, USB drive, medical device, robotics, and others.
Universal Flash Storage (UFS)
Nowadays, people are performance oriented. UFS was introduced to market with performance improvement, security features, write booster and power efficiency. UFS win over eMMC because if its performance.
Data privacy and protection became one of the hottest topics around the world. To protect data from leakage, software and inline encryption is used to secure data. Encryption is a process of locking your data out from the unauthorized users. With this protection, user can get a piece of mind without worrying their data and information leak if their phone is stolen or disposed. Unfortunately, there are unexpected thing happened that causes unable to access their data.
Data Recovery Challenges
As a Singapore data recovery centre, we received cases such as water damage, phone crash, motherboard failure which unable to repair. If the crucial chips are not affected, there are still chances to get the data back. But, the specialist need to verify the type of encryption and how to access the valid information. Without the proper method, we are not able to access the data as the chips will lock us out from it.
Although recovery of data from encrypted chips is the biggest challenge that face by our recovery specialist, it might take months to recover the data. Through various research that have done over the years, our recovery specialists manage to recover the data from these encrypted chips. The research will never stop as the technology keeps advancing. We will never stop, if you do not give up on your data.
EHDR, We Leave No Data Behind!
