Company History

Beginning as a software company in 1985, Ontrack has grown into a global, consultative data solution company in its 30-year lifespan. Success in the software industry with the Disk Manager® product led the company to recovering data from damaged hard disk drives and resulted in the formation of Ontrack Data Recovery in 1987. Today, Ontrack performs an average of 40,000 data recoveries annually across a wide arrange of media types (hard drives, servers, RAID, tape, email, SSD/flash, mobile), and Ontrack continues to pioneer many of the tools and techniques used in the data recovery industry.

Computer Forensics

As the company’s experience and reputation of recovering deleted information from computers developed, requests from law firms and government agencies to recover data while maintaining a chain-of-custody record increased.

This, coupled with fact that electronic documents began to outnumber paper documents and companies needed an effective way to collect, analyze, filter, process and review both electronic and paper documents for litigation, investigations and regulatory requests spawned the birth of the company’s computer forensics and ediscovery businesses. Today, our computer forensic experts have vast experience with the forensic collection and analysis of media and can provide expert testimony in court when needed.


In the 1990’s, as electronic documents began to outnumber paper documents, companies needed an effective way to collect, analyze, filter, process and review both electronic and paper documents for litigation, investigations and regulatory requests.

For the last 20 years, Ontrack has developed award-winning technologies and developed efficient processes and consultative services to help law firms and corporations navigate ediscovery. Today, Ontrack has five data centers around the globe and mobile technologies to address ediscovery needs literally anywhere.


Understanding the value of helping organizations proactively prepare for requests for electronically stored information and prevent data disasters, Ontrack established its strategic consulting practice in 2006. Leveraging our 30 years of experience with the most nuanced data incidents and matters, our consultants help clients confidently prepare for and respond to a broad range of information management challenges including creating and administering document retention and destruction protocols, defensibly safeguarding potentially relevant data, effectively implementing litigation holds and other business requests for ESI.

In addition to organic product and service growth, the evolution of Ontrack has also been marked by the acquisition of companies in adjacent industries or targeted geographies: Oyez Legal Technologies, which led to edisclosure capabilities in the U.K.; Ibas/Vogon, which established our data recovery and computer forensic presence in the Nordics; Engenium, a premier search technology organization; and TrialGraphix, a provider of presentation and trial services (divested in 2007). Ontrack now employs more than 1,100 employees and operates nearly 30 offices in 19 countries worldwide with consulting, software and service solutions in a number of areas including: data recovery, data destruction, electronic discovery, consulting services and document review.
