New Oxygen Forensics updates put one of the world’s fastest, most comprehensive digital forensic platforms in the hands of investigators
ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Dec. 6, 2018 – , a global provider of digital forensic investigation software to law enforcement, government and enterprise organizations, introduced today an update to its product enabling forensic investigators to process and examine large volumes of data at record speed. The update, which includes a new module called Oxygen Forensic® JetEngine, not only makes Oxygen Forensic® Detective 11.1 one of the most comprehensive analysis tools on the market for examining data from mobile devices, cloud services, drones and IoT devices, but also one of the fastest in the world.
While smartphones represent the handheld key to an individual’s digital identity and activity, only a small portion of the data collected about a person is stored on the phone itself. Complemented by various network devices such as laptops, drones, health trackers and connected home assistants, and powered by cloud services, the amount of data about an individual relevant to an investigation grows exponentially over time.
“Analyzing a dozen or more cell phones from different individuals can lead to quite a volume of data – not just from the phones alone, but also from online data and accounts associated with the phones,” noted Bryan Neumeister, a court-certified forensic expert and CEO of . “JetEngine has given us the ability to bulk-download information from various websites and backup files and incorporate that into a case database quickly and effortlessly.”
The JetEngine module enables users to remove processing memory limitations by expanding or upgrading the hardware used in extracting and processing data. Many advanced forensic labs leverage multi-core processors or multiple configurations to examine many devices and accounts at once as part of one or more investigations. Now, these investigators can take full advantage of these hardware components by removing limitations of the software.
Lee Reiber, chief operating officer for Oxygen Forensics, commented, “Finding relevant evidence across multiple devices and accounts is already like finding a needle in a haystack and law enforcement officers face haystacks that grow bigger every day. We designed JetEngine specifically to help investigators tackle enormous amounts of data quickly and efficiently. For high-stakes criminal investigations such as murder cases and terrorist activity, cutting the time spent retrieving and sifting through data by 50 percent has the potential to save countless lives.”
Oxygen Forensic® JetEngine, along with several other new features including industry-exclusive support for Uber, Fitbit, Google Fit and Samsung Health, is available today for Oxygen Forensics customers to download and begin using.
