TrueCrypt Data Recovery

TrueCrypt is one of the most popular on-the-fly encryption (OTFE) tools available, as it provides excellent functionality in a flexible open-source package. It is often used to create encrypted partitions or virtual devices, and while it offers limited protection from physical attacks, TrueCrypt's Serpent, AES and TwoFish ciphers provide adequate protection for most users.

We provide free media diagnostics for all encrypted devices. Each diagnostic report provides a price quote, an estimated turnaround and other essential case information.

Data Recovery Techniques for TrueCrypt Devices

TrueCrypt uses an XTS mode of disk encryption, which utilizes two separate keys to provide better security than traditional standalone ciphers. The program's hash function can complicate data recovery, but our engineers use specialized data recovery tools to treat data corruption and other logical issues, preventing any chance of media damage.

Our data recovery process varies depending on the failure scenario. We start each TrueCrypt case with full media diagnostics to create an appropriate data recovery plan.

If a TrueCrypt system suffers from a physical hardware failure, we repair physical media issues safely in a certified Class 10 ISO 4 Cleanroom. Secure Data Recovery Services uses Class 10 ISO 4 standards rather than outdated Class 100 standards to ensure the best possible media safety when treating RAID arrays, hard drives, solid-state drives and other sensitive devices.

After completing any necessary physical repairs, we create a bit-by-bit copy of your media. Our engineers safely work with the copy without risking logical or physical damage to the original media. We complete most cases within several days, and our 24/7/365 emergency services carry an average turnaround of less than 48 hours.

Our engineers may need to complete additional steps in order to return a copy of your encrypted files. If a TrueCrypt partition existed on a RAID, for instance, we will need to rebuild the RAID to recover working data. We provide an overview of our recovery process through our no-risk media diagnostics.

Security Credentials and GSA Certification

Secure Data Recovery Services has more relevant security certifications than any other data recovery company, and we were the first data recovery provider to earn an SSAE 18 Type II certification.

TrueCrypt users often use on-the-fly encryption to protect sensitive or legally protected data, and we maintain compliance with a number of industry standards and federal laws. For the benefit of our data recovery clients, we provide a detailed overview of all of our security credentials on the certifications page of our website.

Our credentials include:

  • PCI Security Certification
  • SAS 70 Certification
  • SSAE 18 Type II Certification
  • Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) Member
  • General Services Administration (GSA) Contractor Certification

As a GSA certified data recovery provider, we offer excellent pricing and reliable security for our government and military clients via the GSA schedules program. We can handle high-security cases, and all of our media services are available through the GSA. For more information or our GSA number, contact our customer service team.

Custom Data Recovery Services for TrueCrypt Devices

Secure Data Recovery Services offers a variety of options for TrueCrypt encrypted devices. We can return data in an encrypted, decrypted or partially decrypted format. In order to decrypt TrueCrypt data, we typically need login and password information.

In some cases, we can even decrypt data without a full key, provided that our engineers have complete access to the hardware used to initiate encryption. Our engineers have access to the latest decryption and data recovery tools, and we have developed proprietary tools designed specifically for TrueCrypt virtual devices and partitions. Because of our proprietary utilities and experienced engineers, we offer extremely high recovery rates and fast turnaround times.
