Today we’re excited to launch two new ways for law enforcement, military, and private-sector investigators to approach investigations. Our suite of mobile forensic solutions relies upon tried-and-true, flagship UFED technology together with a couple of newcomers designed to unlock the intelligence of new and disparate mobile data sources and extend investigative capabilities to the field so that actionable information can be qualified and shared quickly.
The new offerings are founded upon insights gleaned in our recent mobile forensics trends and predictions survey. Among them, 60% of respondents indicated that more data stored off the device and on the cloud was of major concern to them, while 80% of respondents reported experiencing some level of device backlog in the last year.
The UFED Pro Series, designed for forensic lab practitioners, and the UFED Field Series, designed for field personnel, each respond to those and other concerns by optimizing data extraction and analysis capabilities by role—and unifying investigative workflows between lab and field.
In other words, field-level investigators now have a way to obtain a simple data preview capability, enabling them to access actionable data without having to wait for a lab, while lab-level investigators can use specialized tools to tackle a larger swath of visible, hidden, deleted, and cloud-based private data, when a situation demands.
The UFED Pro Series comprises Cellebrite’s flagship UFED Ultimate together with UFED Link Analysis and, when appropriate, the all-new UFED Cloud Analyzer in two solution sets: UFED Pro CLX and UFED Pro LX. The integration allows examiners to unify disparate data for easier analysis, helping to bring key insights to the surface quickly.
The UFED Field Series – an integrated software and hardware solution comprised of UFED Field IX and UFED Field ILX — allows field-level personnel to perform simple, efficient, data extractions onsite via in-car workstations, laptops, tablets, or our new secure, self-service UFED InField Kiosks at stations or other locations. This frees forensic specialists to move beyond basic evidence collection and focus on more complex analytical work.
Both solution sets include user and data management controls that forensically preserve evidence, maintain chain of custody through the unified workflow, and promote device owner privacy by filtering data by date, time, and/or content types to focus only on what’s most relevant to an investigation.
