Paraben(R) Corporation has announced that it has acquired SIMCon, a popular SIM Card forensic tool. Paraben has already integrated the technology into SIM Card Seizure, its own product for SIM Card forensics. Paraben has also integrated the technology from SIMCon into its popular cell phone and PDA forensic software – Device Seizure. “I’m very excited for what this will do for the digital forensics industry,” said Svein Willassen, creator of SIMCon…With SIMCon integrated in Device Seizure, that tool has been strengthened. Device Seizure has the ability to recover deleted SMS messages from SIM Cards and it has the ability to recover deleted SMS messages, images, and other information stored in cell phones and PDAs. “SIMCon has a great reputation in the European market,” said Amber Schroader, CEO of Paraben. “The combining of our two technologies just made sense.” Customers can purchase both SIM Card Seizure and Device Seizure with SIMCon immediately from Paraben’s web site as well as SIMCon’s website.
Paraben Corporation was established in 1999. Paraben quickly became a leader in handheld forensics with the release of PDA Seizure. After releasing Cell Seizure, the first commercially available tool for cell phone forensics, Paraben combined the two tools to create Device Seizure, a comprehensive handheld forensic solution. Paraben also has many digital forensic software titles for forensic analysis of hard drives & media as well as specialized tools for enterprise level forensics, training classes, as well as forensic hardware.
