Cellebrite announced the release of several advancements for the company’s industry leading Universal Forensic Extraction Device (UFED) Series.
Cellebrite’s technological developments allow users to expand their mobile forensic capabilities with an updated software package for the UFED Physical Analyzer, the most powerful mobile forensic tool in the market. Its latest version, UFED Physical Analyzer 3.0, enables a wide range of advanced functions. These include:
Image Carving: allows the recovery of deleted image files and fragments even when only parts of them are available.
Timeline: enables users to view all device events in chronological order at one time.
Watch List: allows users to highlight information based on predefined lists of values.
Physical Analyzer 3.0 also has an improved user interface that enables more efficient analysis work. Users can now do less work to see more information, including contact images, and whether certain data within an entry has been deleted.
This new release also enables the physical extraction and decoding from all rooted and non-rooted Android devices. This means that Cellebrite now exclusively supports the mobile industry’s leading Android brands, Samsung and Motorola: Galaxy SII family, Galaxy Note, Milestone, Droid and Defy.
Finally, this version includes the launch of the UFED Reader, a new tool allowing users to share extraction and analysis results with any authorized personnel, even if they don’t have a UFED license. This function allows for greater data sharing and collaboration among investigators, attorneys, supervisors and others who need case details. The UFED Reader’s functionalities include report customization and generation, advanced search capabilities, bookmark management and more.
“We strongly believe in offering our customers the most up-to-date solutions in the market, and that’s why this is our fourth UFED software release this year,” said Ron Serber, co-CEO of Cellebrite. “By meeting the technological challenges presented by the industry’s most advanced mobile devices, we have once again fulfilled our promise to constantly provide forensic investigators with even more advanced capabilities.”
