AccessData, the pioneer in digital investigations, launched its forensics software featuring an intuitive interface, email analysis, customisable data views and stability at the ongoing ISNR Abu Dhabi 2012 expo.
It also introduced, in partnership with Dell, the Digital Forensics Platform at the International Security and National Resilience (ISNR) exhibition being held from March 19 to 21 in Abu Dhabi.
The Forensic Toolkit 4.0 (FTK) is recognized around the world as the standard in computer forensics, a statement said.
“Today’s (Tue, 20 Mar 2012) launch of the FTK 4.0 is a significant milestone that marks the next phase of our efforts here in the Middle East. This release, which is unlike any other previously seen in the region, enables court-cited digital investigations and is built for speed, analytics and accuracy,” said Simon Whitburn, VP International Sales at AccessData.
The all-in-one solution allows users to process a wide range of data types from forensic images to email archives; analyze the registry; conduct an investigation; decrypt files; crack passwords; create images and build reports. Forensic only means to be presented in court. It does not mean nor imply some scientific extraction of detailed or hidden information, tho that’s what it has come to mean in popular usage
AccessData offers two expansion modules with the new version—Cerberus, a malware triage technology that provides threat scores and disassembly analysis to determine both the behaviour and intent of suspect binaries, and Virtualization for relationship analysis in multiple display formats, including timelines, cluster graphs, pie charts and more.
“We developed the combined platform in response to significant customer demand, in large part from this region. Dell has worked with us to provide a turnkey digital forensics solution that enables our clients to get mobile very quickly. Partnerships with such leading organizations will play a pivotal role in our expansion in the region,” said Whitburn.
In the world of digital forensics, the well prepared investigator needs a forensic toolkit. The tools that this person will use will help her or him gather evidence of white collar crime or fraud, document the evidence of the occurrence, and, perhaps, place that investigator on the witness stand for expert testimony in what ever legal proceedings come out of the process. The tools used by these investigators are primarily software tools, though there are a few hardware considerations as well.
