Founded in 2011, Proven Data has consistently evolved to meet the growing needs of our clients. Every day, we see the devastating impact of a data crisis from the front lines. For this reason, we come into work every day ready to be the beacon of light for our clients.  This is what inspires us.

History & Timeline

Mark and Victor Congionti Proven Data
Brothers Mark & Victor Congionti create Proven Data
Working as a Senior IT Security Analyst, Victor discovered a need for affordable and reliable data recovery services. Seeing a problem without a solution, Victor and Mark joined forces to solve it. From Victor's IT experience and commitment to client assistance and Mark's passion for technical problem solving with an extensive mathematics background, Proven Data was born.
Ransomware Recovery Experts
Clients ask for ransomware recovery services, Proven Data answers
Clients began repeatedly coming to us after their data had been encrypted by ransomware attacks. Finding that reputable and reliable ransomware recovery services weren't available and determined not to leave our clients stranded, we launched our ransomware recovery division.

Our passion for serving our clients through any data crisis has been our mission since our founding. Being one of the founding principles, we demonstrated this by becoming the first company in the world to assist victims of ransomware in 2015.

Digital Forensics Services
Digital forensics division helps clients discover how cyber attacks happen
Dedicated to helping clients recover from ransomware attacks, we saw a need to provide additional information on how the attack happened, what damage occurred and what next steps they should take. To help our clients answer those questions, we launched our forensic investigation division.
Free Guide To Ransomware: Proactive Protection, Mitigation, Safety
Client's need for proactive data protection prompts Proven Data expansion
Our ransomware recovery clients were frustrated that after an attack, they were often targeted again. Our digital forensic investigators continued to see a trend where businesses had poor security hygiene. Seeing an opportunity to assist, we began offering cyber security services to protect our clients and keep their data safe from another attack.
