Review - ReclaiMe Pro

Wednesday, October 07, 2015 (13:11:24)
I would be tempted to argue that you can tell a lot about a piece of software by how easy it is to install.

There are times when finding, downloading and installing a product update feels like repeatedly banging your head on a brick wall: constant freezing, confused Windows popups, license key errors...

Then there are times when you click 'Download', then 'Install', then tick 'Yes' in the little box, and boom! The software appears.

I am pleased to be able to report that the installation process of ReclaiMe Pro falls into the second category. It can be found on the Download page of the website, and it sets itself up in just a few minutes.

After that, of course, it's time to get down to business.

Adopting a collaborative workflow for faster digital forensic investigations

Friday, September 25, 2015 (11:54:52)
In search of the smoking gun, forensic investigators must wade through growing volumes of digital evidence across an increasing number and variety of sources. More often than not it’s impossible for a lone analyst to complete a multi-faceted, multi-device case within a strict deadline using traditional methodologies. That’s why it makes sense to turn to technology and colleagues for assistance.

Join Nuix’s free webinar happening Wednesday, 7th October 2015 at 10.00am BST which will take you through an investigation into an international diamond smuggling ring and demonstrate how you can reduce your workload using technology and collaboration.

We’ll show you how case officers can analyse simple files (for example documents, emails, and chat logs) within Nuix Web Review and Analytics while forensic investigators can examine forensic artefacts such as the registry and jump lists using Nuix Workstation – all at the same time.
