  • "ADF is an incredibly easy-to-use forensic software that allows us the ability to collect actionable intelligence in the field.  Additionally, ADF has significantly reduced the time it takes to complete our forensic caseload by over 80%; Not only saving time but more importantly, saving lives." - Stephen Komorek, API Consulting Group

  • "I recently completed the one-day "Mobile Device Investigator" training to learn how to use ADF's MDI product. The trainer was easy to follow, the visuals were well done, we had our own laptop and tablet provided to us for the training, and when the class was done we knew how to use the product with confidence. I liked that there was a knowledge test at the end, also. I recommend this training to anyone who will use this product for cell phone investigations." - Suzanne Benedict, Private Detective

  • "Great tool to support LE in digital investigations and we all know getting evidence to put predators behind bars has become more difficult but with this skills set and tools are built to make it easier." - James DuPell, Task Force Member with the Anti-Human Trafficking Intelligence Initiative
  • "We have had a job this week where DEI has saved us SO much time. We have the CAID hash sets in the case profile and it picked out 14K on one hard drive! It has been so useful as we have had thousands of hits on loads of other drives that were seized and we are using DEI to report these."
  • "To start with, the install was extremely simple and I had no issues with the install and setup. I like how the user interface that you start out on gives you descriptions on what each option can execute. From the main interface, I went to scan devices and images and it was easy to understand how to upload an image and understand what the interface was asking for. I think most people would find this tool easy to understand."

  • "I started with a quick, general profiling scan and it finished very quickly. I then did a comprehensive general profiling scan and I was able to see the photos and view the timeline. Even though I could not see the photos with the quick scan, I can see how a quick scan could be of use if you needed to see the general contents of a drive quickly."

  • "Even though the intermediate and comprehensive scans took longer than the quick scan, I still think they were completed fast. I like how there are eleven options to pick from on how you want the information to be scanned, this makes it much easier when you are trying to find a certain kind of data on the drive."

  • "Another aspect that I really like is that you can go back and look at previous scans. You can scan in a few different ways, if needed, and then go back and look at all the results. The scan results section is also very easy to understand and navigate. I noticed you can also delete a result, and I like that in case a mistake is made."

  • "I really like the report feature and how you can choose to include certain records and choose to not include certain records, instead of just dumping everything into a report. Another feature I really enjoyed was the timeline feature. I think that this tool is very easy to use and easy to navigate, especially for someone like myself, who is only familiar with a few forensic tools."
