Paraben Corporation, a digital forensic technology provider, announced today that it has released the new Cell Seizure Investigator Stick (CSI Stick). The CSI Stick is a thumb drive size device that forensically acquires data from cell phones. This portable solution is easy to use with a simple one button command to gather data from the device…Whether it is logical or physical information, the CSI Stick can gather the data. “The Paraben CSI Stick has the potential to be a great tool for street level patrol officers. The functionality of the stick allows street level officers to view media quickly and at the same time the stick maintains a forensic image for full exam by forensic lab personnel,” said Jay Poupard, of the Michigan State Police.
The CSI Stick and its one button interface is the perfect tool for first responders as it gives them the ability to capture all the data off the phone or just grab the imperative data such as SMS messages, phonebooks and call logs, or multimedia messages.
The CSI Stick supports 330 models of Motorola and Samsung phones and is supplied with three adapters for the different connections. Other adapters for popular cell phones will be released later this year increasing the number of models that the CSI Stick will support with LG and Nokia support already in development.
Paraben Corporation is the global leader in cell phone forensics and has been innovating and leading this field since 2002. “After years of developing innovative cell phone forensic technology, we saw a definite need to take cell phone forensics to the masses allowing patrol, narcotic, and gang officers and many others to have access to digital evidence they did not have access to before,” stated Amber Schroader, CEO of Paraben Corporation.
The CSI Stick is compatible with court approved Device Seizure and DS Lite and is available for $199.00 U.S. stand alone or $399.00 with a 4 hour training session on operations and cell phone data analysis.
Paraben Corporation specializes in computer forensic software for enterprises and consumers. Established in 1999, Paraben became a leader in handheld forensics with the release of PDA Seizure in 2002, the first commercially available tool for cell phone forensics. Paraben then combined the two tools to create Device Seizure, a comprehensive forensic solution for cell phones and PDAs. Paraben also has many digital forensic software titles for forensic analysis of hard drives and media – P2 Commander, and specialized tools for enterprise level forensics – P2 Enterprise, training classes, and forensic hardware.
