Oxygen Forensic Suite 2014 Adds New Acquisition Methods for Android Devices

Friday, June 20, 2014 (12:29:41)
Oxygen Forensics has updated its flagship mobile evidence discovery solution, Oxygen Forensic Suite 2014, adding physical acquisition support for MTK-based Android devices and introducing dual-joint logical acquisition support for all Android devices.

The new release greatly simplifies the acquisition of MTK-based Android devices, allowing investigators to make a full physical dump of the device while seamlessly bypassing the lock screen. The new physical acquisition method requires no rooting to get full access to the device data. In addition, Oxygen Forensic Suite 2014 implements a new approach to logical acquisition of Android devices. The new joint extraction method works by combining data acquired via Android backup and with OxyAgent utility, returning the most complete data set possible via logical acquisition. The new joint extraction method automatically complements pieces of information that might be otherwise missing if only one acquisition method was used.

With the increasing size and complexity of investigations, there is more pressure than ever for forensics professionals to find ways to streamline the investigative process and quickly get to relevant evidence. When added to an IEF license, this new module will expand the types of evidence that can be found by an IEF search beyond Internet artifacts, provide all evidence in a single consolidated report, and give the digital forensics professional a more complete view of user activity on a computer using a single search.
