Propel Confidentiality Review and Improve Information-based Operation and Maintenance Safeguard System

For ensuring all confidentiality rules implemented, all secret services in China have carried out a confidential review to all party-government offices, important institutions and departments, with combination way of convention and specialization, since a new secret law was implemented officially in October 1. As soon as violations appear, they should be handled strictly. In additions, the review results must be linked up with annual evaluation and confidentiality funds, so as to ensure the maximum and overall implementation of the new act.

The primary goal of the confidentiality review lies in data information safety, one of the new law modification keys. In the party-government offices’ confidentiality review “Looking Back” and computer secret management inspection of last year, too many institutions exposed hidden leaks which were not coincident with secrecy inspection regulations. Once these leaks expose again in the confidentiality review, the institution information centers even the whole institution’s assessment and confidentiality funds will be influenced seriously. Therefore, at present the top priority for all information center managers is how to adapt information-based operation and maintenance safeguard system to a new confidentiality review, and how to preferably exploit the subject of information-based operation and maintenance safeguard.

Xinhua net has reported that all party-government offices and institutions should adapt to the requirements of confidentiality inspection after the new law was issued, and partial institutions should prevent the reoccurrance of hidden leaks because of using non-China data information safeguard products. To reach the goal, hundreds of key institutions and departments in China, such as The Ninth Physics Institution of China, National Security Agency and The 57th Research Laboratory of Headquarter, deploy SD-DSM which is an all-range trinity data information safeguard system and is researched and developed autonomously by SalvationDATA, who has advanced and global leading technology. The SD-DSM includes three main functions of high-speed offline backup, data recovery, and data erasure or destruction. All technologies are designed autonomously by SalvationDATA and the domestication rate reaches 100%. There is no space left to design the system continuously so as to provide adequate safeguard for information-based operation and maintenance management.

At the moment, the core technology of SD-DSM has successfully passed the authentications of Chinese Secret Agency’s Inspection Center and Chinese Military Information Evaluating Center. Meanwhile, SalvationDATA has gained special fund support provided by National Science and Technology Department. The successful application of SD-DSM in national key institutions and departments has great significance for propelling confidentiality review and improving information-based operation and maintenance safeguard system.

SalvationDATA announces new solution of disaster recovery due to head damage

Chengdu, Nov 22, 2010—SalvationDATA Technology(SD), the leader in data recovery and hard drive repair hardware solutions, announced today its new data recovery solution for failed hard drives of Western Digital ROYL families suffering head damage. SD’s mater 3+1 data recovery system is engineered to deliver an accurate, reliable, hardware and software integrated data recovery solution.

Each Data loss situation can be different and the causes are often interrelated, not to say common PC users, but some professional data recovery engineers failed to evaluate the situation due to the received mixed messages or lack of proper data recovery tools to diagnose and restore the drives. In reality, approximately 80% of lost data can be retrieved but hundreds of thousands of gigabytes (GB) of data have been lost simply because users were not aware of their options and gave up hope of recovery. Head damage is one of the ‘hot potatoes’ as one common data recovery case. Data recovery companies usually charge over 1000USD to handle such kind of cases because the drive with head damage must be opened in the clean room, the clean room engineers must use professional head or platter swap tools to perform the exchange with donor heads or drives and finally use professional data extracting tools to recover the lost data. Unfortunately, few data recovery companies have been equipped well with all of those things to deliver a high success rate of recovery to their customers.

Hard drives with head damage are very sensitive and you must consider a good solution to avoid a second damage or the retrievable data become permanently lost. Data recovery cases of head damage are very common in our data recovery labs. Why? It’s actually quite amazing how close to the surface of the platters the heads fly without touching. To put it into perspective, a modern hard disk has a floating height of an amazing 0.5 microinches. A human hair has a thickness of over 2,000 microinches! You can see why keeping dirt out of the hard disk is so important! In fact, the floating height of a hard disk is smaller than the circuit size of a microprocessor. What’s even more amazing is how much abuse these hard disks can take when they are placed in laptop PCs, for example, given these facts, and how many people take this technology for granted every day. That’s also why it’s always suggested to shut down your computer while your drive suffers clicking noises until you find real professional data recovery companies for look into your cases.

Data Compass, the core product of SalvationDATA 3+1 data recovery system is announced today with a new solution to western digital hard drives of ROYL families to fix the head damage and recover the lost data by loading from the primary head of secondary head. Users of it don’t need to be equipped with clean room because the drives with head damage are not required to be opened and you don’t need to spend time and dollars to search or buy donor heads or drives. All you need to do is to click some simple buttons and boot the drives again.

“This cutting-edge technology is aimed to solve that WD ROYL hard drives cannot be booted when one of the main heads fails to work. This malfunction usually has following symptoms: power on the HDD, the motor spins up, the heads starts seeking and give “cackling” sound, the motor stops after trying two or three times. There are two copies of WD firmware, one is stored on logical head 0(primary head), the other is on logical head 1(secondary head); if both the primary head and secondary head are damaged, you may not use this technology because there’s no firmware stored in other heads”, Said Mr. Sebean Koehler, one clean room data recovery engineer of SalvationDATA.

What are the techniques used to recover data?

Data loss is caused due to any logical or physical damage to the storage media. However the techniques to be applied on the storage media depends on the cause of data loss. Some of the data recovery techniques are:

  • Logical data recovery

In a data loss situation when the hard drive is perfectly fine and the BIOS recognizes the hard drive but reports a read error, logical data recovery technique is very helpful. Here the files that are damaged or corrupted by any user error or virus attack are rebuilt rather than repairing the hard drive.

  • Fragmentation

When the FAT entry is lost during accidental file deletion, formatting or partition deletion that particular block of hard drive becomes inaccessible. Some data recovery software makes an attempt to rebuild the files without a FAT entry. This technique is very efficient if the file size is smaller than the clusters size. But it is inefficient in recovery the larger files.

  • MFM (Magnetic Force Microscopy)

MFM is the latest technique that uses a sharp tip attached to a flexible cantilever placed close to the surface of the damaged device where it interacts with the stray magnetic field. While the tip is moving across the magnetic device, it is evaluated to detect the lost data. The technique turns out each track that contains an image of everything ever written to it, and finally recovers the lost data.


Data Privacy Best Practices for Data Protection in Nonproduction Environments

There is a growing need to protect sensitive employee, customer, and business data across the enterprise wherever such data may reside. Until recently, most data theft occurred from malicious individuals hacking into production databases that were made available across the Internet. With a number of well-publicized and costly thefts creating both tremendous legal liability and bad publicity for the effected organizations, business has quickly grown more and more sophisticated in protecting against such schemes.

While the industry deals with the most egregious aspects of data theft, an important tier of computer data remains practically untouched and unprotected by today’s new data security procedures: nonproduction systems used for in-house development, testing, and training purposes are generally open systems and leave a large hole in the data privacy practices at companies of all sizes.

This white paper discusses best practices for creating data privacy procedures in nonproduction environments. These procedures include creating a comprehensive set of policies to classify data types that need to be protected, integrating these policies into day-to-day business processes, providing ongoing compliance reviews, using a proven commercial solution for masking sensitive data in all nonproduction environments, and integrating these privacy processes and technology across the enterprise.

Data Security Tools

The standard interfaces such as Firewire (IEEE 1394), USB port are designed with possibility of bidirectional data transfer-Read and write. The data can be transferred in and out by these interfaces and therefore, data leakage is inevitable. Traditional methods by using software to control the USB ports to make it read-only but the problem is the software control is easy to be attacked and blown away. Now new computers equipped with Source Data Safe Guard have the problem fixed. It stops the computer data being transferred out by the physical real-only design and at the same time, you are able to update your computer and software programs which the software read-only methods won’t allow. So from now on, you don’t need to worry about your computer sensitive and important data will be copied to external drives and your data is safe in a great way.
