Data Rescue 24/7

Data loss of a proprietary system

Attingo data rescue reverse engineers proprietary hard- and software, in order to reconstruct lost data

Proprietary systems

Attingo data rescue will reconstruct data from proprietary hardware and software. Our technicians have already reverse-engineered many systems (i.e. decrypted), however, the reverse engineering of unknown hardware or software is of interest to data recovery.
"Proprietary software or closed source software is computer software licensed under exclusive legal right of the copyright holder with the intent that the licensee is given the right to use the software only under certain conditions, and restricted from other uses, such as modification, sharing, studying, redistribution, or reverse engineering. Usually the source code of proprietary software is not made available."

Examples for proprietary hardware

  • Storage media in medical equipment (z.B.: X-ray, magnetic resonance)
  • Datalogger (z.B.: Dash 32HF, AstroMed)
  • CNC machines
  • Control systems (industrial machines, power plant equipment)
  • video surveillance systems (z.B.: DVR AVTECH)
  • Videorecorder with built-in hard disks
  • Mediaboxes
  • Copier, printer and similar multifunctional equipment
  • TVs
  • Mobiles, organizer and tablets
  • Hard disks out of printer and copier

The above-mentioned equipment often features non-standardized storage media. This can for instance become evident in the form of a special interface, complete with its own memory chips or the manner in which data is stored (file system, file format). Many manufacturers especially design the hardware or software in accordance with the requirements of the particular device. Video surveillance systems for instance sometimes use a proprietary encryption of the data.

Attingo data rescue offers data recovery projects in which the software and hardware is reverse-engineered in order to obtain access to the data. This is subsequently converted into a format the customer can work with and is delivered.
