With Cellebrite’s announcement of providing complimentary access to its state-of-the-art UFED Cloud Analyzer, examiners can rapidly access public social media and cloud-based data. Practitioners can quickly reveal evidence hiding in plain sight on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter by automatically extracting and preserving public-domain forensically-sound data in one workflow without a warrant to:

• Obtain location information, profiles, media files, and communications.
• Eliminate the time consuming, manual process of gathering, organizing and viewing disparate public cloud sources.

In order to better address the needs of forensic examiners who also investigate cases or must support the investigative team with analysis or case review, Cellebrite is also introducing new usability improvements to Analytics Desktop. Updated features support, additional media classification categories, UI improvements and a more streamlined workflow from UFED Physical Analyzer that will help examiners dig through data faster to surface and capture relevant evidence to help address growing areas of crime, such as homicide, terrorism, border security, organized crime, and child exploitation.

Digital forensic practitioners can now build stronger cases by deploying a UFED Pro Series solution that combines the powerful capabilities of UFED Ultimate, UFED Cloud Analyzer and Analytics Desktop to analyze data from multiple devices, public and private cloud and other digital sources.

“This new solution enables examiners to strengthen cases through superior access to more device and public social media data while ensuring that it is obtained in a forensically sound method,” said Ron Serber, Global Co-CEO of Cellebrite. “As agencies face growing challenges from encryption and backlog, the innovation and breadth of our UFED solutions help examiners access the inaccessible and streamline the lab workflow to help break more cases faster.”
