This year, the community has chosen to recognize Cellebrite not only for its cutting edge mobile forensic solutions, but for its contribution to the broader digital forensics community. We believe this recognition comes from our solutions that address wider digital evidence challenges, including UFED Cloud Analyzer that helps investigators collect private-user data from cloud sources; UFED Analytics product family that delivers intuitive data analysis and management capabilities, and our Cellebrite Certified Training offerings, which helps investigators confidently testify in court about mobile evidence.
We are grateful for these awards, and we look forward to meeting our obligation to serving the community with new technological breakthroughs that overcome the toughest challenges in the industry, by supporting the latest device models, firmware and operating systems, and addressing security barriers, including encryption. Cellebrite’s UFED consistently brings critical digital forensic capabilities first to the lab and field, and many of these capabilities remain unmatched for months or years. Our innovation timeline demonstrates some of our exclusive digital and mobile forensic developments over the last twelve months, including a new proprietary method to disable user lock for 137 leading Samsung devices; lock bypass for 140 LG models, and lock bypass and physical extraction support for 200 Samsung devices.
Thank you to all the dedicated UFED users and the digital forensic community for taking the time to vote for Cellebrite., We look forward to working hard to earn your votes again next year.
