Besides Cellebrite is there an alternative

Post Posted: Tue Nov 13, 2012 3:39 pm

Besides Cellebrite is there an alternative to capturing data from a cell phone on the physical side (ie deleted items)? In addition to bypassing the swipe or passcode on these devices?

XRY is doing Physical as well. Hopefully someone who has experience with the product can give you an idea of how good it is.

I've used quite a few of the mobile forensics tools out there and at the moment there are two stand outs, XRY and Cellebrite, really I don't think anyone else is even close when it comes to the physical dump and decoding of phones.

There is a small tool called iXam which is iOS only tool that can also bypass iPhone lock but they seem to have fallen a bit further behind XRY and Cellebrite when it comes to iPhones.

I know EnCase is delving into phones and FTK have a solution, but my opinion is they should stick to computer forensics and leave the phones to the specialists, I was very underwhelmed when testing their tools, so much so that no matter what they do they would virtually have to give it to me for free before I'd even consider using them again.....but that is my personal opinion only. Same goes for Oxygen and the other software only solutions, they are tourists at best Smile

You other option is looking at flasher boxes, but that's a whole other area of expertise that I've not had much experience in.

Thanks for the input guys, I have very little experience with XRY but use Cellebrite almost daily. I will look further into XRY and see what they have to offer.

What's XRY complete going for, or what do each of the 2 units go for.

Thanks.

I can only speak for Cellebrite: The base unit (Logical) goes for around $5,000 and adding the physical is another $3,999. They now have a newer unit called UFED Touch which is going for around $10,000. Each has a yearly license of about $900. I have been trying to get a hold of someone from XRY but I am getting no response???

I priced out XRY a few months back and it's a bit more expensive than Cellebrite, but you should contact Microsystemation for a quote as prices may vary from region to region.

My quote was coming in around $13k AU, UFED was under $10k Very Happy

If you are using UFED though you aren't going to notice much difference switching to XRY, unless of course you have the budget to have both then I say definitely worth it.
