Recovering Cloud-Based Evidence with Internet Evidence Finder

Internet Evidence Finder (IEF) from JADsoftware now supports the recovery of evidence from Cloud services. IEF v5.5 supports the recovery of cloud-based evidence from computer hard drives and live memory. Initial support includes popular cloud storage services Dropbox, Google Docs, Google Drive, Skydrive, and Flickr. Additional cloud storage services will be supported throughout the summer.

“Cloud storage usage has exploded as people want to share & access their files wherever they are around the world. The positive news for investigators is that there is a wealth of evidence left behind on a hard drive and in RAM when using these cloud services. We are pleased to be the first in the industry to offer comprehensive support for the forensic recovery of cloud-based artifacts,” says Adam Belsher, CEO of JADsoftware.Evidence recovered by IEF varies by cloud service, but can include file names, usernames, user ID, dates, times, and file sizes.

JADsoftware will be demonstrating their cloud capabilities of Internet Evidence Finder (IEF) at The Computer Enterprise and Investigations Conference (CEIC), a leading conference for e-Discovery, Cyber Response and Digital Investigations hosted by Guidance Software, May 21-24 in Las Vegas, NV.


IEF v5.5, which includes the new cloud capabilities, will be generally available on June 25, 2012 for the existing IEF price of $999 USD. FREE trials will be available from at that time.
