Data Recovery Company

Gillware’s story began over twelve years ago. Since then, we have emerged as one of the world’s best data recovery companies. If you are looking for an affordable and competitive data recovery company, look no further. Our Madison-based lab staffed with data recovery experts make it easy for us to offer world-class data recovery services at lower prices than other labs.

Of course, what’s important to us isn’t that we deliver cheap services–it’s that we deliver the best. At Gillware, our experts repair failed hard drives in ISO 5 certified Class 100 cleanroom benches. We utilize cutting-edge proprietary technology to recover data, such as our intelligent forensic imaging software and hard drive platter burnisher.

Whether you have a broken hard drive, a snapped USB stick or dead SD card, or a dozen hard drives in a RAID server with ESXi virtual machines, we know how to provide the very best data recovery services.

Our data retrieval service is audited for SOC 2 Type II security. A third party analyst reviews all of our facilities, procedures, and networks to make sure we meet SOC 2 standards. Any data we recover only leaves our building when we send it back to our client. We store recovered data on hardware-level encrypted external hard drives. Only the client receives the password, thus preventing any third party from being able to intercept their data. Our post-recovery drive sanitation procedure completely erases all of the data we recover from our facility once the client’s data is in their hands.

Gillware Data Recovery is a HIPAA compliant data recovery company. Our entire process meets HIPAA requirements for keeping confidential medical data safe. Gillware is also a GSA contract holder. This means we meet all of the necessary security requirements that allow government agencies to use our services without worrying about the safety of their data. Our GSA contract number is GS-35F-0547W. Our DUNS number is 185948374.

Creating the Best Data Recovery Company

Brian, Tyler, and Wesley Gill created Gillware in 2004 to address a need for affordable, customer-friendly computer data recovery services. With their expertise and experience with computer and mechanical engineering, the Gills researched hard drive data recovery tools and methods. Gillware then began to steadily outgrow its humble beginnings. At Gillware, we now have over 30 data recovery and forensic experts on our team. As a small business located in Madison, Wisconsin, we are able to provide our world-class data recovery services at a more affordable price than our competitors.

Gillware Data Services and Online Backup

Gillware introduced its own backup service in 2006. At this point, Gillware was still very small, with around fifteen employees total. Gillware Online Backup was developed by people with an intimate knowledge of how data gets lost—and how hard it can be to get it back. Our online backup service prevents you from needing our data recovery service. Gillware Online Backup is to date the only data backup service designed by data recovery experts. Our unique perspective makes Gillware Online Backup your best insurance against data loss.

In 2016, Gillware Online Backup was purchased by StorageCraft. Click here to learn more.
