Berla’s iVe kit, is a vehicle system forensic tool that supports vehicles throughout the world. iVe provides forensic examiners and investigators a means to quickly and intuitively acquire and analyze data from vehicle systems.

Vehicle systems store a vast amount of data such as recent destinations, favorite locations, call logs, contact lists, SMS messages, emails, pictures, videos, social media feeds, and the navigation history of everywhere the vehicle has been. Many systems record events such as when and where a vehicle’s lights are turned on, which doors are opened and closed at specific locations, and even record audio from inside the vehicle.

The XAMN family of software is a suite of analysis tools designed primarily for investigators to help them to work more efficiently. Once mobile data has been recovered using the XRY suite of tools, it is usually the investigator’s responsibility to locate and analyze the critical information.

The XAMN suite of analysis tools helps to quickly identify that critical information, whether to see the big picture or identify precise details in a huge dataset of mobile evidence.

XAMN tools are simple to use and therefor minimize the requirement for infrastructure and training. Every investigator can directly take advantage of the power of XAMN to solve crimes faster, resulting in financial savings and improved efficiency and crime detection for their organization.

Berla and MSAB look forward to providing their capabilities to investigators throughout the world for years to come.
