Hard Drive Recovery Group, a RAID data recovery services firm based in Irvine, California, has announced that they have recently published an article titled, “Affordable AI-Powered Software Can Help Prevent Malware Attacks.” This blog post points out that software programs using artificial intelligence (AI) technology are needed to prevent malware attacks because hackers are smart people who are able to create codes for the specific purpose of infecting computers in order to steal critical information from computers.
Maureen Davies, a representative for Hard Drive Recovery Group, says, “If you do a lot of banking and shopping online, you’re definitely going to need this AI-powered software. One thing you need to know about the Heimdal Thor Foresight Home Malware Protection is that it’s not an anti-virus software. There’s actually a big difference between the two.”
The difference is that an anti-virus relies on its database of existing vulnerabilities. To protect the computer from malware infection, it makes use of signature-based detection of malicious software. However, that is not sufficient. Cyber attacks have become more complicated and 75 percent of them are brand new, which means that they are not likely to be listed yet in the database of an antivirus software.
The Heimdal Thor Foresight Home Malware Protection takes a more proactive approach by scanning all Internet traffic, whether incoming or outgoing, for malicious connections and then it blocks them. This particular AI-supported software is actually affordable. And it can be used to supplement the standard antivirus software.
Unfortunately, there is no such kind of protection that can prevent a hard drive from failing. Whether or not the computer has been exposed to a malware or virus attack, hard drives can fail. And the antivirus and malware protection software cannot prevent the hard drive from failing or crashing. When a hard drive failure happens, people will just need to fix servers and their RAID hard drives and get the services of a hard drive recovery expert from a company like Hard Drive Recovery Group.
RAID networks are still able to function even if one the drives fail because of its built-in redundancy. However, it will be functioning in a “critical” or “degraded” state and its performance will have declined. This usually happens because the data that was lost in the failed drive will have to be generated “on the fly” from the parity data. The failed hard drive will have to be replaced and after this is done, and the array will have to be generated on the new drive through the use of the RAID controller.
Furthermore, while the array is working in its degraded mode, it is vulnerable because at that particular time, it no longer has redundancy. Thus, it is important to replace the failed drive as soon as possible.
Then there is the possibility of multiple drive failure or other equally serious problems. If one of these occur, it is necessary to call for assistance from a professional RAID data recovery firm, particularly if the array’s files are not regularly backed up. Fortunately, with the use of special tools, facilities and software, and skilled experts from a company like Hard Drive Recovery Group, data recovery can almost always be a success.
There are various DIY methods for recovering data for RAID systems through the hex editor. However, it is important to know that these methods will entail certain risks and it is advisable to back up the drives before making any of those attempts.
For professional RAID recovery services, the Hard Drive Recovery Group can boast of their broad experience. They have been recovering hundreds of RAID servers a month for more than a decade. They also have a Class 100 clean room, which ensures that the RAID server recovery will be performed in a professional and risk free environment.
