Jones Dykstra Computer Forensics Experts Announce JDAFTS Forensic Tool Suite

As of today, Maryland-based Jones Dykstra & Associates (www.jonesdykstra.com) is offering free download of their new computer forensics software tool suite, JDAFTS. JDAFTS, which stands for Jones Dykstra & Associates Forensic Tool Suite, includes case data management applications that extend beyond the capabilities of currently-available forensic software applications. JDAFTS is designed for computer forensics, corporate, government, and law enforcement investigators as well as universities. Easy to use, the tool suite allows forensics professionals to import, analyze, compare, and export electronic activity logs from sources including web browser activities, Windows Recycle Bins, and software packages like EnCase® and Forensic Toolkit® (FTK)…JDAFTS features include:

• Comprehensive Data Timeline

JDAFTS pulls data from several different sources and creates a combined timeline view of the correlated data. The data is displayed in a single interface with columns and abbreviations indicating origins of each log item. Columns can be sorted, dragged and dropped, depending on users’ review preferences.

• Quick Reports

Using JDAFTS “Quick Reports”, various reports can be quickly created and easily imported into investigative reports. Browsing histories from Internet Explorer, Mozilla and Netscape can be extracted based on the domains visited and time accessed. The data can then be exported as a Word Document, Crystal Report, PDF, Excel spreadsheet or rich text format including charts and graphs. JDAFTS users can select specific domains and see when and for how long they were accessed.
