Facebook And Google Warrant Returns And Full-File-System Data Collection From iOS Devices

In December, Cellebrite UFED Ultimate Version 7.27 unveiled a long-awaited transformation in iOS forensics that enabled forensic examiners to perform full-file-system data collection from lawfully accessed iPhone 5S devices through to iPhone X.

Moreover, Cellebrite UFED Ultimate provides the ability to import and process the latest Warrant Returns from Google and Facebook, to incorporate the data into a case review.

Cellebrite UFED Ultimate was also used to find digital data that helped convict a Facebook predator.

Translate Textual Content In 40+ Languages With Cellebrite Smart Translator

With more than 5000 international crime groups operating globally, and with encrypted communication channels being used to arrange and even carry out criminal activities, the chance of coming across foreign textual content during an investigation is increasingly common.

In October, Cellebrite UFED Ultimate added the Cellebrite Smart Translator for examining textual content in over 40 languages, translated into your native language, using state-of-the-art neural machine translation.

In Cellebrite UFED Ultimate Version 7.24, users were also given the ability to perform data collection from Apple devices running iOS versions up to 13.1.2.

More Samsung Devices And Data Sources Supported

In July 2019, examiners received a Cellebrite UFED Ultimate performance boost to open, process, and successfully decode much larger data collections faster. This upgrade includes added capabilities to gather additional data from LG devices, support the LG database, and provide information about application usage and events for LDB_MainData.db.

Plus, Cellebrite UFED Ultimate Version 7.21.1 provided users with an industry-first Samsung Exynos Physical Bypass Solution! Cellebrite UFED Ultimate extended access to 13 more Samsung devices using the Exynos processor.

Selective Data Collection Speeds Up Time-To-Evidence

When decisions must be made quickly, Cellebrite UFED Ultimate empowers examiners with selective data collection capabilities to perform fast and focused collection. Examiners can choose the applications in which they suspect relevant data or leads may be contained. They can also perform selective data collection instead of waiting several hours to complete a full-file-system extraction.

At Cellebrite, we’re constantly innovating to bring the DFIR community the very best products to help you build a safer world.
