The company has worked for some of the world’s biggest companies. Among its biggest clients include Seagate, Zynga, NASA, Toshiba, Hitachi, Fujitsu, IBM, Maxtor and Lacie. Since it was founded in 1997, here are some of the awards won by Secure Data Recovery:

Secure Data Recovery received the recognition from VeriSign on April, 5 2011. The seal is expected to expire by April 4, 2014.
VeriSign is the company behind Thawte Security, a certificate authority founded in 1995 by Mark Shuttleworth.
