ADF software is deployed in field and lab investigations of smartphones, computers, and storage devices and is used by digital first responders to quickly collect, identify, and report on digital evidence - thereby reducing or eliminating forensic backlogs that many agencies and forensic labs face today.
"After introducing the ability to create screen recordings of Android devices and seeing how successful this feature was, we worked quickly to offer the same capability on iOS devices," said Raphael Bousquet, CTO, of ADF Solutions. "Screen recordings of connected mobile devices make it possible to collect information from mobile devices in a forensically sound manner when other methods may not be available. With this release our users have the ability to run an advanced logical acquisition, take screenshots, and make screen recordings of mobile devices, giving them more ways to uncover potential evidence, and ultimately make more informed decisions based on that evidence."
The latest release from ADF Solutions offers several new features that streamline digital forensic investigations:
- The Screen Recording feature now enables investigators to record videos of iOS screens in addition to Android devices for a more comprehensive approach to digital forensics.
- Deploy user-created Captures. When not using Search Profiles on your Collection Keys, investigators can now bring their custom Captures with them as well.
- The new Capture screen improves the ease of use and efficiency of the scan setup process. There is now no need to edit a Search Profile to access your Captures. A new menu entry is now available to access them.
- A new simplified data container for storing Mac logical images in a zip format and improved imaging log files so investigators can scan their images with the ADF tools or another tool of their choice.
- Highlighted encrypted files in the viewer. The scan summary section now highlights when encrypted files have been encountered during a scan and offers a hyperlink to quickly navigate to them.
- Redact previews when exporting a report to protect sensitive information with one-click sanitization.
- Initialize Authentication Keys with license tokens. When working with the token server, it is now possible to borrow an offline license token for on-scene use of the ADF applications. This allows the use of multiple collection keys in the field.
“This update continues our mission of helping investigators quickly and easily scan mobile devices to get digital evidence and expedite cases," said Seth Land, VP of Sales for ADF Solutions. "ADF forensic tools are now easier to use and deploy for small and large law enforcement agencies alike."
What This Solves
This new release offers several new features that solve critical challenges faced by law enforcement and government customers who use forensics software to collect digital evidence. The screen recording feature provides investigators with an additional means of uncovering potential evidence, making more informed decisions based on that evidence, and ultimately speeding up the case resolution process for smartphone investigations. This new release assists with iOS forensics by providing a video record of all interactions with iOS devices, even the most current ones. This enables easy capturing of evidence and intelligence for inclusion in reports which can now be easily sanitized to exclude offensive material. The ability to redact previews when exporting a report protects sensitive information with one-click sanitization, while initializing Authentication Keys with license tokens allows for the use of multiple collection keys in the field, making forensics software deployment and usage easier for both small and large law enforcement agencies. Overall, these solutions enable investigators to streamline their work, collect more comprehensive evidence, and make better decisions based on the evidence they have collected.
"ADF Solutions is committed to developing innovative solutions that streamline digital investigations and improve our customers' experiences," said Brittany Roberts, Director of Marketing at ADF Solutions. "We are excited to offer these new features to our customers and continue to provide the tools necessary to conduct efficient and effective investigations."
