MSAB Builds Out Mobile Forensic Ecosystem to Create Networks of Linked Tools

Stockholm, 2017-10-25 15:00 CEST (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

New Additions to the Ecosystem Empower Law Enforcement Users to Keep Pace with
Changing Needs and Trends

MSAB, the global leader in mobile forensics solutions, today announced the
expansion of its Mobile Forensic Ecosystem solution with the addition of one
new product and significant improvements to three existing products. These new
products and enhancements will give law enforcement agencies new capabilities

· Quickly extract and analyze data from mobile devices;

· Transmit data to a forensic lab or headquarters location for analysis;

· Check phone data for matches with criminal or terror watch lists of
suspects, and

· Assist investigators focusing on crimes against children.

Until recently, most tools for mobile forensics were stand-alone computers with
specialized software that enabled the extraction and analysis of data from cell
phones and other mobile devices. Now, by networking forensic tools together
and adding additional capabilities, MSAB is enabling police investigators and
analysts to achieve a number of advantages, including:

· Data and evidence mobility - Instantly move extracted mobile device
data from a field location to a central office or headquarters for analysis by
investigators and analysts;

· Advanced watch listing - Use watch lists of suspected criminals
and/or terrorists and quickly check a suspect’s mobile phone seized in the
field against those lists, which are updated regularly;

· Image recognition - Automatically sort downloaded images into
categories like weapons, drugs, people, etc. for faster analysis and

· Interoperability with Project VIC - Analyze images against the
Project VIC database to speed the discovery and categorization of images
associated with crimes against children without investigators having to view
those images; and

· Advanced hex carving and reconstruction - Use a new advanced
hex-carving forensic tool, XAMN Elements, designed to help forensic experts
reconstruct relevant digital evidence in the toughest cases.

These capabilities are now available in XEC Director, MSAB Kiosk 7.5, and XAMN
Spotlight 3.0as well as the new XAMN Elements.

“When we announced the MSAB Ecosystem in 2016, we said we were committed to
evolving our products to address the rapidly changing developments in the
mobile forensic market. These include the increasing volumes of data and
devices needing to be examined, the rapid changes in mobile phones, and the
pressure on law enforcement agencies to do things faster in spite of limited
resources.” said Joel Bollö, MSAB CEO. “This demonstrates that we are
delivering on our promises.”

“Many law enforcement agencies are dealing with a growing backlog of digital
evidence and an explosion in the number of devices and apps in use,” Bollö

“The Ecosystem lets users seamlessly share data extracted from devices in an
investigation, advancing the speed and efficiency of their efforts,” Bollö
said. “As criminal enterprises become more sophisticated in their use of the
Internet of Things, encryption and new apps, law enforcement agencies must keep
pace by using cutting-edge tools that help to level the playing field and win
the day.”
