Practitioners can quickly reveal evidence hiding in plain sight on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter by automatically extracting and preserving public-domain forensically-sound data in one workflow without a warrant to:
- Obtain location information, profiles, media files, and communications.
- Eliminate the time consuming, manual process of gathering, organizing and viewing disparate public cloud sources.
In order to better address the needs of forensic examiners who also investigate cases or must support the investigative team with analysis or case review, Cellebrite is also introducing new usability improvements to Analytics . Updated features support, additional media classification categories, UI improvements and a more streamlined workflow from UFED Physical Analyzer that will help examiners dig through data faster to surface and capture relevant evidence to help address growing areas of crime, such as homicide, terrorism, border security, organized crime, and child exploitation. Digital forensic practitioners can now build stronger cases by deploying a UFED Pro Series solution that combines the powerful capabilities of UFED Ultimate, UFED Cloud Analyzer and Analytics to analyze data from multiple devices, public and private cloud and other digital sources. “This new solution enables examiners to strengthen cases through superior access to more device and public social media data while ensuring that it is obtained in a forensically sound method,” said Ron Serber, Global Co-CEO of Cellebrite. “As agencies face growing challenges from encryption and backlog, the innovation and breadth of our UFED solutions help examiners access the inaccessible and streamline the lab workflow to help break more cases faster.”
Cellebrite introduces advanced machine learning technology to analytics solution to accelerate evidence discovery
New automated digital media detection and categorization plus computer forensic data ingestion capabilities, integrates and analyses critical digital evidence sources including social media, cloud, computer, mobile and cellular operator data into a single view to expedite evidence analysis
Petah Tikvah, IL – Aug 7, 2017 – Cellebrite, the leading provider of digital intelligence solutions, today announced groundbreaking enhancements to its Analytics offerings designed to detect and analyze digital media evidence faster using a series of machine learning algorithms. This latest advancement in digital evidence analysis provides law enforcement professionals with cutting-edge neural network-based algorithms that automatically identify and categorize previously known and unknown images and video clips. Access to advanced analytic tools for text, video, and images optimizes investigative resources by eliminating manual analysis of large volumes of media artifacts and helps to reduce the psychological stress of reviewing sensitive material typically involved in criminal cases. “Digital evidence from mobile phones, social media accounts, and computers can carry hundreds of data artifacts that include image and video meta data and classification, which can make manual evidence analysis even more complex and time-consuming,” said Patrick Krieg, Detective Sergeant-Criminal Investigation Division Dunwoody Police Department. “Using intelligence obtained in merely hours from Cellebrite Analytics allowed my investigative unit to pursue leads that may have otherwise took weeks or months to locate. The depth of this tool and its ability to cross-reference and identify significant target correlations is unprecedented. I found that this analytic tool finally offered a viable solution to the massive amount of information obtained through cellular extractions and applying that information to a usable and presentable format.” This new release of Cellebrite’s UFED Analytics Platform provides powerful options for correlating, viewing and exploring files from various computer, social media, cloud, mobile, cellular operator records and other digital data sources in a centralized view, with managed access for multiple users, providing real digital intelligence and collaboration for investigative teams. Key updates to the platform include:
- Automated Image Matching and Categorization: This first-of-its-kind capability automatically categorizes images and individual video frames to eliminate manual review of duplicative evidence and correlate unknown images as well as identify unique media so investigative teams can focus on the data of interest. State-of-the-art algorithms have been deployed to automatically detect objects such as weapons and drugs within media. The system also detects and categorizes child pornography, adult content, documents and screen shots resulting in accelerated access to investigation relevant media.
- Face Recognition and Matching: The unique algorithms used for automatic detection of faces within any picture or video available to the system, allow investigators to quickly and accurately cross-match individual faces in media.
- Computer Data Ingestion: Computer data extractions can now be ingested as an additional data source within Cellebrite Analytics so when processed in concert with data from social, cloud, mobile, and mobile operator sources, it provides investigators with a holistic view of accumulated evidence.
- Integration with External Data Sources: Integration with Project VIC, CAID and other defined hash value databases reduce the psychological stress of reviewing sensitive material. Existence of known incriminating images are automatically identified by matching image hash values and then classified using pre-defined categories. Unmatched images that are discovered can also be categorized and exported so they can be immediately shared with law enforcement forces worldwide.
The powerful machine learning elements in Cellebrite Analytics will accelerate time to evidence in a variety of investigations, including child exploitation, narcotics, gangs, human trafficking, counter-terrorism and many more. This new release also integrates with other Cellebrite offerings including the new edition of its UFED Cloud Analyzer – with a robust toolbox of investigative capabilities, investigators can analyze public domain social media data with private cloud or social media data pursuant to a warrant, as well as mobile device, computer and telecom operator data to immediately identify evidence that is critical to an investigation. “Every day, investigators face the daunting challenge of working with growing volumes of digital evidence that has, until now, required manual, painstaking review and analysis,” said Yossi Carmil, Global Co-CEO, Cellebrite. “Using our purpose-built analytical engines, investigators can automatically organize, analyze, cross-reference all data sources enabling them to focus their efforts on the most relevant evidence—a process that creates a detailed, big picture view while providing immediate context to help focus and accelerate investigations.” To learn more, visit us online at www.cellebrite.com.
