EnCase Forensic 7.09: iOS Investigations Out of the Box

Tuesday, March 04, 2014 (14:20:10)
Most investigators are familiar with the capabilities of EnCase® Forensic as a tool for investigation of desktops, servers, and hard drives, but did you know that ever since EnCase Forensic v7 was introduced, it has provided support for smartphone operating systems out-of-the-box? In Version 7.09, the latest release, EnCase improves smartphone acquisition, analysis and reporting capabilities by adding support for iOS 7 devices.

As you likely know, the mobile device market is dominated by iOS and Android devices. Over 90 percent of the world's smartphone users have an Apple- or Google-powered device.

Magnet Forensics is pleased to announce that Internet Evidence Finder (IEF) v6.2 has been validated by the United States Defense Cyber Crime Institute (DCCI). DCCI is the research, development and evaluation arm that tests tools tailored to the specific requirements of digital forensic examiners and incident responders.

Friday, February 28, 2014 (15:34:19)
AccessData, the leader in incident resolution solutions, today announced the InSight™ Platform, a revolutionary cybersecurity system enabling enterprises to adeptly manage the rapidly accelerating volume of data incidents caused by cyber-attacks, mobile risk, GRC (Governance Risk & Compliance) and eDiscovery requests.

The overwhelming volume of data and alerts from existing security investments do not provide the context needed for analysts to prioritize incidents. And legacy tools, used to investigate and resolve incidents, are comprised of multiple point products, requiring manual processes and scarce expert talent. As a result, it has become painstakingly difficult and cost prohibitive to detect, respond and mitigate threats quickly and intelligently, with CISOs and IT departments often simply working to get compromised systems back online, without investigating or resolving events so they can be prevented in the future...

In one six-month period in 2008 alone, the agency collected webcam imagery – including substantial quantities of sexually explicit communications – from more than 1.8 million Yahoo user accounts globally...
