Responsible for a Digital Forensics Budget? 10 Reasons Why to go with ADF

Digital forensic investigations can be expensive. The price can range from $2000 to well over $100,000 for forensic tools and training [1].

The most common reasons why digital forensics tends to get expensive are: 

  • inexperienced/untrained users
  • outdated systems
  • challenges with acquiring systems
  • systems that don't talk to one another
  • timing in the collection or reviewing of evidence
  • reporting

Forensic investigators can focus on low initial pricing products and low-cost training to get them started with solving their forensic investigations. With the right digital forensic tools and techniques, your digital forensics budget can be maximized. For example, the cost of computer forensics investigations can be slightly offset by purchasing a PRO tool that combines computer forensics investigation capabilities and mobile forensics investigation capabilities in one tool. Forensic Budget Blog Post Image (TW) (1)

ADF tools are easy-to-use, learn and deploy across large teams which means your agents can make field decisions to identify suspects and protect victims. In addition, you'll reduce your forensic backlog. Your field agents will know just what devices to seize to bring back to the lab and your examiners will know right where to start their investigation.
