ElcomSoft has pioneered many software innovations that have made it easier to recover lost passwords from the operating system, Microsoft Office products, Adobe PDF files, Intuit Quicken, OpenOffice and a variety of other applications. The latest development revolutionizes the speed of password recovery without requiring expensive hardware.
Elcomsoft Distributed Password Recovery employs a revolutionary, patent pending technology to accelerate password recovery when a compatible NVIDIA or ATI graphics card is present in addition to the CPU-only mode. Currently supporting all GeForce 8, 9, 100, 200, 400-series GPUs and ATI Radeon 4000 and 5000-series GPUs, the acceleration technology offloads parts of computational-heavy processing onto the fast and highly scalable processors featured in the latest graphic accelerators.
The acceleration technology developed by ElcomSoft allows the execution of mathematically intensive password recovery code on the massively parallel computational elements found in modern graphic accelerators. The GPU acceleration is unique to Elcomsoft Distributed Password Recovery, making password recovery up to fifty times faster compared to password recovery methods that only use the computer’s main CPU. In addition, Distributed Password Recovery also supports Tableau TACC1441 hardware accelerators.
Elcomsoft Distributed Password Recovery supports a variety of applications and file formats, allowing password recovery from Office documents, Adobe PDF files, PGP disks and archives, personal security certificates and exchange keys, MD5 hashes and Oracle passwords, Windows and UNIX login passwords.
