BlackBag Technologies is pleased to announce the release of the latest version of our mobile device triage tool, Mobilyze 2017 R1. New features added to this version of Mobilyze are designed to increase the capabilities of Mobilyze examiners to analyze the latest iOS and Android devices.
– Support for Apple iOS 11
– Support for Android 8 Oreo
– iPhone 8 identified for full collection and analysis
– iOS 11 encrypted backups and MDM profiles detect and prompt for passwords
– Expanded Emoji support, including from the latest iOS 11.1 release
With Mobilyze 2017 R1.1 installed on a Windows or Mac examination system, Examiners are able to identify and conduct a full data collection of devices running iOS 11.
Google’s new Android 8.0 (Oreo) was released in August 2017 and is now being shipped with several new Android-based phones. Just like with other versions of Android, Examiners with Mobilyze 2017 R1.1 installed on a Windows or Mac examination system can identify and conduct a full or limited data collection of these devices
Mobilyze will now identify all iPhone 8 models when the device is connected to either a Mac or Windows examination system. Examiners can then obtain a full data collection that can be used for further analysis.
Mobilyze will now acquire and parse data from iOS 11 devices that are set to encrypt backups when iOS 11 is installed. To read this data from the device, the examiner will need to enter the encrypted backup password when prompted by Mobilyze; otherwise, only a limited data will be available.
Mobilyze will also acquire and parse data on a device running iOS 11 with a Mobile Device Management (MDM) Profile after the appropriate password has been entered.
Examiners should note that the password for an iTunes encrypted backup can be different than the mobile device password. Mobilyze supports an encrypted backup password that can be set when the device is connected to iTunes.
With the increasing usage and popularity of messenger apps, like WhatsApp, we recognize the importance of supporting version updates as quickly as possible. With this latest release of Mobilyze, we’ve updated support for the additional locations where WhatsApp data may be stored, and now parse these messages in the easy to use ‘Comm’ view.
As the Unicode emoji character set expands, additional images sets and options are available. With the latest release, Mobilyze users will be able to view these emojis within the application and include them in the report.
