Does Windows XP’s end of life affect the UFED Touch?

UFED Touch continues to be Cellebrite's flagship hardware.In recent weeks we’ve gotten quite a few questions regarding the impending April 8, 2014 end-of-life date for the Microsoft® Windows® XP operating system. Specifically, customers are wondering whether the Windows XP life span affects the Windows-based UFED Touch platform.

We are happy to report that it does not. The UFED Touch runs the Windows Embedded Standard 2009 version, released on October 7, 2008. According to Microsoft, the end of life for Windows Embedded Standard 2009 doesn’t happen until January 8, 2024.

So, if you are in the process of procuring or evaluating the UFED Touch for your mobile forensics needs, please be assured that it will continue to be fully supported.
