Mobilyze 2017 R1 will acquire and process data from Android phones running Android 7.1.1.

The Mobilyze Advantage
In a matter of minutes, investigators can sift through a device’s data, locate and tag items of interest, and determine whether a more comprehensive analysis should be pursued. Mobilyze displays data in self-explanatory categories (e.g., communications, media, locations, etc.), and it features keyword searching, parsing of geolocation metadata, and filtering by keyword and/or custom timeframe.
