Password Recovery on the Cisco ASA Security Appliance
RecoverySoft / September 23, 2018

In this article, I’ll explain how to perform a password “reset” on your Cisco ASA security appliance. The more commonly used term for this procedure is “password recovery” which is left over from the days when you could actually view passwords in configuration files in plain text. Today, such passwords are encrypted and not actually recoverable. Instead, you will gain access to the appliance via the console port and reset the password(s) to known values. This procedure requires physical access to the device. You will power-cycle your appliance by unplugging it at the power strip and plugging it back in. You will then interrupt the boot process and change the configuration register value to prevent the appliance from reading its stored configuration at boot. Since the device ignores its saved configuration on boot, you are able to access its configuration modes without passwords. Once you’re in configuration mode, you will load the saved configuration from flash memory, change the passwords to a known value, change the configuration register value to tell the device to load its saved configuration on boot, and reload the device. Caution: As with all configuration procedures, these procedures should be tested in a laboratory environment prior…

All Types of Data Recovery Service Provider
RecoverySoft / September 9, 2018

Data recovery refers to the retrieval of lost data or information on your computer or electronic device owing to physical damage, virus attack, presence of corrupt or broken files etc. The Operating system becomes unable to read and identify the cluster of data due to the damage. The most common way to recover your data in case of loss is to have back-up files in external hard-drives, discs or having it shared on the internet. Setting up more than one partition in your existing hard-drive also helps in data back-up. If one partition is corrupt, the others remain fine. So the data in those partitions are retrievable and usable. Data recovery service is provided by a number of companies to recover and revive your lost data. There are a number of ways or methods by which lost data can be recovered. Most recovery services have trained professionals to Data Recovery Services by physically repairing the damaged part. The main storage cell of a computer is the hard disk. Companies provide efficient technology to have the parts repaired or replaced. When the hardware has been thoroughly checked and no threats have been found, the next part to look into is the…

Hybrid Cloud Storage: A Tiered Approach
RecoverySoft / September 5, 2018

Hybrid Cloud Storage For hybrid cloud storage, data mostly resides within the private portion of the cloud. If apps are also deployed within the private cloud, the data store may store files and data for these apps, this should be the highest-performing storage system within your entire hybrid cloud storage strategy. It’s all about time and money The costs of local and cloud data persistence is now so inexpensive that using secondary means, even tertiary mean, of storing data as an active backup system for primary persistence, or even as an up-to-date copy of the primary storage, is the best approach. With a few exceptions. In the hybrid cloud storage strategy, the secondary storage system exists in the public cloud. Data is replicated or moved to a public cloud storage system, my preference is as Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) Simple Storage Service, to provide active backup for the primary storage system. In other cases, an enterprise might move older data to the public cloud to free up space in primary storage. AWS Glacier would be a great example. If a secondary storage system is used to store data moved from primary storage, be sure to design your apps to look…
