Paraben has been at the edge of innovation with the addition of support for IoT devices. Support started in Oct 2016 with DJI Drones support, and has increased with support for Android wearables, Fitbit, and Xbox gaming systems. With the 1.4 release of the E3 platform planned for the first of August 2017, the support of IoT devices will grow with Paraben releasing the first support for the Amazon Echo devices.
“The support of these devices was crucial because of how foundational the Echo technology is in IoT devices. Over 8 million people now own an Amazon Echo device; Alexa is here to stay. We needed to make sure we supported not only the local smartphone App, but also dealing with the data in the cloud.” commented Amber Schroader, CEO of Paraben. Paraben has always had a unique approach focusing on areas that not every digital forensic software company noticed.IoT are the new nooks and crannies of digital evidence have been pivotal to cases being closed. Paraben provided the digital forensic community the first tool for the acquisition and analysis of mobile devices back in 2001 and has continued to edge out others with its cutting-edge research into IoT devices.
