With the release of UFED Physical/Logical Analyzer 4.2.2, Cellebrite offers new decoding features designed to improve investigative efficiency from 1,128 additional device profiles and enriched degree of decoded data from 873 app versions.
Exclusive support for the latest and popular Samsung devices
Samsung contributes to the highly fluid mobile market by introducing ever smaller and lighter mobile device models every few months. The quick adoption of these devices by felons leaves investigators to encounter additional challenges during the investigation. Cellebrite enables access to all data, including deleted data, from the newest Samsung Android devices available in the market today. Cellebrite supports physical extraction while bypassing the user lock using the forensic recovery partition method, and decoding from 33 Samsung Android devices, including Samsung Galaxy S5, S6 and Note 4 family of devices.
Cellebrite’s UFED replaces the device’s original recovery partition with Cellebrite’s custom forensic recovery partition. The original recovery partition on the Android device can be considered as an alternative boot partition that may also change the user data partition, while Cellebrite’s recovery image does not affect any of the user data.
Support for next generation smart watches
Android wear may be a new concept, but with nearly $7M sales just last year, many independent research groups anticipate a huge growth in the wearable space is in the next upcoming years. With the rate of new devices entering the market by Samsung and others, Cellebrite ensures that investigators remain ahead with the most advanced extraction and decoding technology to support these new trending devices.
UFED enables physical extraction while bypassing lock, and decoding support from the most popular next generation smart watches including LG smart watch LG G WATCH R™ (W110) and the previously released Samsung Galaxy Gear SM-V700.
