BlackLight From BlackBag

by Scar de Courcier

In recent months there have been several new and exciting developments to BlackBag’s BlackLight solution. BlackLight helps investigators to analyse computer volumes and mobile devices; it can acquire Android and iPhone devices and runs on Mac or Windows. We took a look at some of the latest changes and how they work.

The new interface is the first major change. BlackBag had received a number of requests for filtering across multiple volumes at one time. Although it was always possible to search across these, filtering was not an option until recently. Now when you add each volume, it is automatically assigned a number in the order in which the data is ingested.

This review is designed to assist organizations or individuals to streamline that process when considering the use of the Logicube Forensic Falcon®- NEO without the influence of the manufacturer or other third-party competitors. Initially the testing conducted was performed in a controlled laboratory QA process. After proven concepts and manufacturer claims were validated, an extensive evaluation in a live environment with real evidence was made.   more ...
