PivX Solutions Announces Computer Forensics Partnership Agreement

PivX Solutions, Inc. has announced a partner agreement to expand the company’s nationwide computer forensic services by partnering with SuperGeeks, a computer consulting company in Hawaii.Under the agreement, PivX will be the exclusive provider of computer forensic expert witness and investigative services to SuperGeeks’ wide array of customers in Hawaii who need expertise in civil, criminal or military court. SuperGeeks will perform physical work necessary to deconstruct computer files and hard drives to uncover hidden programs and data, scan for infections with viruses, spyware, Trojans and worms, assist with computer forensic analysis and provide ongoing computer technical support to PivX clients in Hawaii.

Jason Coombs, director of forensic services for PivX, is currently serving as an expert witness and forensic consultant to attorneys whose clients are charged with crimes that involve personal computers, such as alleged possession of child pornography or e-commerce theft. Coombs is an expert witness in pending civil cases and has worked with clients such as IBM, EDS and Westinghouse in civil court offering technical proof and forensic presentations in complex civil litigation involving software, cryptography, intellectual property, electronic commerce and other aspects of computer science and industry. Coombs has provided expertise to attorneys, courts and juries in criminal and civil cases nationwide since 1995.

“This partnership is a great alliance of computer security minds and resources,” said James Kerr, president at SuperGeeks. “We have very talented geeks who are capable of unraveling even the most complicated computer puzzle, while our forensic services clients are best served by adding PivX’s expertise.”

“Your computer, whether at work or at home, is an extension of your personal identity,” said Jason Coombs, director of forensic services at PivX. “Anyone who owns or operates a personal computer is potentially sharing their personal identity with an unknown number of third parties, whose actions will point back to the computer owner. Without testimony from a forensic computer expert to interpret electronic evidence, law enforcement officials and courts are not able to make clear, fact-based decisions about reliability of computer seized evidence.”
