At the scene of any crime or incident it is important to protect and collect evidence. There are different types of evidence, including physical and digital. ADF Solutions focuses on retrieving digital evidence from devices starting on-scene. 

All evidence is impacted by time. Quickly deciding what is important helps investigators identify victims, suspects, and motives.

  • It isn't always practical to seize every device on-scene
  • ADF tools triage devices to get investigators to relevant evidence fast
  • ADF tools, are easy to use and built for frontline agents and investigators

Watch this 60 second video for a quick introduction to digital forensic triage.

ADF digital forensic tools can be used in the field or in the lab to help identify critical evidence and speed investigations to help quickly identify victims and suspects while protecting digital evidence.
