DELIVERING CLOUD DATA ACCESS AND INSIGHTS TO ACCELERATE INVESTIGATIONS
Cloud data sources represent a virtual goldmine of potential evidence for forensic investigators. Together with mobile device data, they often capture the details and critical connections investigators need to solve crimes. However, access remains a challenge. Roadblocks and red tape by cloud service providers add time and significant cost to investigations. UFED Cloud provides forensic practitioners with instant extraction, preservation and analysis of private social media accounts -- Facebook, Twitter, Kik, Instagram -- file storage and other cloud-based account content that can help speed investigations.
Part of the UFED PRO Series, this unique and powerful investigative tool automatically collects both existing cloud data and metadata and packages it in a forensically sound manner. Examiners can efficiently search, filter and sort data to quickly identify “Who? When? Where?” details to advance their investigations.
UFED Cloud Enables Users To:
- Perform Timely Extractions of Private User Data
- Unify and Organize Disparate Data into a Common View
- Share and Integrate Data for Further Analysis
