Digital Forensic Investigations

Streamline forensic evidence collection and analysis to close cases faster


Solving digital forensic investigation challenges

Corporate and law enforcement investigators conducting digital investigations need to gather all pertinent data, analyze it at the deepest forensic level and produce trusted reports. With new evidence sources and growing data volumes, processing for large evidence batches can take days instead of hours, increasing costs and delaying case closure.

Digital forensic investigation solutions allow investigators to accelerate evidence processing, seamlessly collect data from new sources, securely maintain evidence integrity and close cases faster.

Key benefits

Quickly find and process digital evidence in computer forensic investigations.

  • Accelerate digital investigations

    Quickly process large batches of digital evidence to save investigators hours per case.

  • Broaden evidence collections

    Acquire evidence from a wide variety of sources and networks and dig deep to highlight all potentially relevant information.

  • Build comprehensive reports

    Provide other investigators, attorneys, judges and senior executives with detailed evidence results to reach conclusions and close cases faster.

  • Improve endpoint visibility and productivity

    Remotely access devices and gain visibility into endpoints on or off the network to enable discreet investigations and ensure employee productivity.

  • Customize workflows

    Optimize investigator workflows with predefined or customized conditions to improve investigation efficiency.

Business impacts

  • Evidence processing

    Investigators need to process large batches of digital evidence, often upwards of 256 GB. Legacy solutions can take days to process evidence, causing delays and slowing case closures. Process evidence within hours.

  • Assessing evidence

    Investigators typically seize numerous devices that each contain multiple terabytes of potential evidence. Finding the relevant data takes time, slowing the productivity of law enforcement or business operations. Assess evidence faster.

  • Handling threats

    Acting on potential threats after the fact is too late. Organizations need to get in front of potential vulnerabilities before bad actors can take advantage. Proactively identify and eliminate threats.

  • Evidence collection

    Bad actors can hide evidence in local machines, on the network or in the cloud. Locating all the pieces to tell the whole story of potential wrongdoing can be tedious. Draw accurate conclusions with the whole story.

  • Resource impacts

    Law enforcement and corporate investigators are seeing a spike in digital crime. The growing attack volume requires extra time, capital and human assets to collect, analyze and summarize crime evidence. Maximize resources to enhance public safety.
