Digital forensics, advanced data recovery, blockchain forensics, forensic data recovery and OSINT

We are here to help you with digital forensics and incident response (DFIR), advanced data recovery, forensic data recovery, e-discovery support, blockchain forensics, and open source intelligence (OSINT) investigations from a wide range of digital data storage devices, locations and operating systems.

Our services cover an extensive range of potential data compromising and loss scenarios, including digital forensic investigations and data recovery from working (ransomware-affected, corrupted, formatted, deleted, virus-infected, hacked, and password-protected) and non-working (dropped, fire, water, and power-surge damaged) servers, NAS and RAID volumes, personal computer (PC) and laptop hard disk drives (HDD), external hard drives, solid-state drives (SSD), mobile devices (smartphones, mobile phones tablets, PDA and cellular phones), drones, IoT devices, backup tapes (tape cartridges), CDs and DVDs, memory sticks (flash drives), SD cards, cloud hosted email platforms and databases.

With state-of-the-art equipment, tools, and software, including a class 100 cleanroom for repairing, recovering, and investigating various types of electronic data storage media and a team of experienced and qualified professionals working in a secure environment under a non-disclosure agreement, we strive to give your data the best possible chance.

We are experienced in responding to, mitigating, and investigating various cyber-related incidents, including ransomware attacks, data breaches, stolen confidential information, fraud, corruption, and blockchain (crypto, web3, and NFT) crimes.

Our threat intelligence services include open-source intelligence (OSINT) analysis and monitoring, using publicly available information from websites, including the surface web, deep web, dark web, the blockchain, social media platforms, search engines, databases, email providers, etc., to gain insight into potential threats or vulnerabilities of a system, organization or personnel.

Our OSINT analysts can help you uncover potential threats before they become a problem by analyzing and monitoring publicly available sources for any suspicious activity related to your company’s operations or personal life.

We are based in Centurion, South Africa (ZA), but we offer our services locally and internationally. For those within South Africa's borders, we offer a free courier collection service for all pre-approved work and a free courier return service for all successfully completed jobs – no matter which corner of the country you're located, whether in Gauteng (Pretoria, Johannesburg, Centurion), Kwazulu-Natal (Durban), Eastern Cape (Port Elizabeth, East London), Western Cape (Cape Town), Limpopo (Polokwane/Pietersburg), Mpumalanga (Nelspruit), North West (Rustenburg), Free State (Bloemfontein) or the Northern Cape (Kimberley).

We understand how important your data is to you. That is why we strive to provide the best possible solutions when we respond, mitigate, investigate, or recover your data in complete confidentiality, as fast and in the best condition possible, no matter the potential data-compromising scenario. Do not play "Russian roulette" with your data!

  • We won't lie, at first we thought price was steep for the recovery. But as they explained how the process works and cost breakdown if they are unsuccessful what we pay and if they get it right what we pay, that set us at ease "abit". Not going to lie it's not cheap but when they showed us they were able to recover all the data we were willing to part ways with our money as the data was important to us. The team however gave such great service. They updated us almost every 2-3 days as the recovery went on. Would recommend them to everyone.
  • Honestly couldn't recommend Tecleo more! They managed to recover vital data off our hard drive after another data recovery specialist couldn't. They were professional and made every effort to get the job done. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone needing data restored.
  • Very helpful and understanding staff. Over delivering on what was promised in record time. At a very reasonable price. Definitely worth contacting them with any data recovery problems.
  • Tecleo managed to clone my dying hard drive to a new drive, and they retained my operating system and all my programs and data. So I just booted up and carried on where I left off, with everything in tact. And all this, at a price I could actually afford, as an individual. I was extremely grateful and relieved. Thank you Martin, and the rest of the team! I found these people to be skilled, professional, friendly and helpful. I was very happy with the service I received, and would definitely recommend them.
