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.”
