Verdict: For our money, the top overall mobile device forensic suite available
Cellebrite’s UFED has received phenomenal reviews from SC Magazine, the most popular and trusted magazine for IT security professionals, for four years running.
The UFED Series scored the highest rating possible, with an overall rating of 5 out of 5 stars, plus 5 stars in all categories, including features, ease of use, performance, documentation, support, and value for money."As an investigation-focused mobile device forensics suite, the UFED series is hard to beat." Mobile device forensics can be the most challenging in the forensic lab and we have found over the years that the UFED tools serve us very well.”
In keeping with the investigation-centered approach, the product review included three powerful tools in the UFED series: UFED 4PC Ultimate, UFED Link Analysis and the new UFED Cloud Analyzer.
See below more highlights from the review:
“The UFED 4PC supports well over 7,000 devices and is both efficient and fast… given that breadth of coverage it is unlikely that you will find a device from which you cannot get some useful data. We use it regularly for routine extractions and analysis. It contains excellent reporting and the user interface is intuitive and complete.“
UFED Link Analysis is an especially neat tool… it is optimized for linking multiple UFED extractions. This allows rapid association of commonalities between multiple devices. Along with UFED 4PC, Link Analysis has become our workhorse tool when more than one device is involved in a case.”
“The newest addition to the suite is UFED Cloud Analyzer. Anyone who ever has conducted an investigation that suggests a link to social media will want this tool… a full dump of a social media site, such as Twitter, takes just minutes.”
