As more use mobile and SSDs, the rise in data recovery needs increase
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/21/2013 -- The data that is lost from mobile devices and solid state drivers is expected to continue to keep the demand for data recovery services up over the next year. Just as there was a rise in mobile devices in the workplace, and the adoption of visualization helped drive up the increase in data requests across the globe in 2012, says a newly published report.
Kroll Ontrack, a data recovery firm, stated in its latest marketing report that the race to reduce the cost of SSDs will
“further fuel adoption and even higher volumes of data recovery requests in 2013.”
“In addition to the BYOD phenomenon this year, we saw a significant increase in the use of SSDs within laptops and PCs as well as more external hard disk drives (HDDs),” said Adrian Briscoe, general manager - APAC, Kroll Ontrack.
“This trend introduced new areas of risk to businesses and consumers alike. SSDs are more complex devices to recover from than traditional hard drives, but the use of personal external hard drives brings extra risks associated with lost or failing devices that are themselves not backed-up properly.”
Briscoe stated that because of many recognizing costs and benefits, smaller and medium-sized businesses adopted virtual environments throughout 2012.
He stated that with an increase in the adoption, came with an inherent increase in data loss within these environments. This was specifically true for company's data recovery engineers, who saw a 10% increase in user errors, such as administrators deleting drives by mistake, according to Briscoe.
Encryption had proved to be another challenge for data recovery efforts in the last year, and devices with encryption stemming from the hardware itself is more widespread due to the more efficient processing speeds.
“While encrypted drives are more secure, encryption adds an extra layer of complexity and makes it a more painstaking task to recover lost data,” Briscoe said.
