As an industry leader, DriveSavers has watched the data recovery industry expand, and as it has, become saturated with many unqualified companies who use their marketing materials to lure customers with powerful claims and low prices.

As a result, consumers and businesses are taking the bait, and many are not getting their data back. To help customers and our partners understand the difference between DriveSavers and other less qualified, less secure data recovery providers, we have introduced industry standards for data recovery.

Data recovery is a complex process that requires special facilities, technology, equipment, an inventory of parts, and trained, certified engineers. Standards that require PROOF are the only way to truly know whether a data recovery provider has the ability to recover data safely. Included here are industry standards, set by DriveSavers, which you should look for when choosing a data recovery company.

Certified ISO Cleanrooms

When a hard drive is open, tiny airborne particles can collect on the platter and cause the read-write heads to malfunction. If the read-write heads damage the device?s platters, valuable data will be lost forever. Having a certified ISO 5 (Class 100) cleanroom ensures that these tiny particles are eliminated from the air and present no threat to an open drive.

DriveSavers invested over $2 million dollars to build the most technologically advanced Certified ISO 5, 6 and 7 cleanrooms dedicated strictly to data recovery. DriveSavers ISO certifications can be viewed at:

Information Technology Audits
Complying with security auditing standards assures that every aspect of the facility and network is certified secure to protect personal and confidential data.

Adhering to Government protocols and Corporate Americas requirements for overall control structure is critical during the data recovery process, and assures customers that their data is protected from a security breach.

DriveSavers is the only data recovery provider that is SAS 70 Type II compliant. SAS 70 Type II is the most stringent and extensive security audit administered.

Secure Network Environment


The need for strong, verifiable security measures is necessary for data recovery providers. The network must be able to prevent hacking activity and other network attacks well before antivirus companies develop new virus signatures to thwart them.

At the foundation of DriveSavers Certified Secure environment is a Cisco® Self-Defending Network; the data recovery industry’s most sophisticated network security system. The network is protected by a defense-in-depth  architecture that includes firewalls, intrusion protection systems, managed security services and 24/7 real-time monitoring.

Encryption Recovery Engineers


There are hundreds of encryption tools available and each one is unique. If the integrity of encrypted data is a concern, data recovery technicians must be trained, certified experts in multiple encryption recovery techniques to safely recover data from encrypted files.

DriveSavers engineers have completed extensive training by the leading encryption software vendors and are certified experts in recovering encrypted files and restoring defective hard drives without compromising the original level of encryption.

DriveSavers engineers are certified by level of encryption. DriveSavers engineers are certified by PGP®, Check Point®/Pointsec®, GuardianEdge®, and Utimaco Safeguard®.

Manufacturer Authorization

If a recovery service meets their criteria, technology manufacturers will authorize a data recovery company to open and work on their devices without voiding their original warranty.
