Every year, industries highlight the best of the best, and this is no different. The Forensic 4:cast awards are the most prestigious awards in the digital forensics industry, and once again (thanks to you!), Cellebrite is in the running to win three in the following categories:

  1. Digital Forensic Organization of the Year: Cellebrite
  2. Phone Forensic Hardware Tool of the Year (Cellebrite UFED Touch 2)
  3. Phone Forensic Software Tool of the Year (Cellebrite Physical Analyzer/ 4PC)

While we anxiously wait for the voting to end tomorrow, let’s sit back and recap what we’ve accomplished over the last twelve months that may help swing your vote towards us:

Technological breakthroughs:

When it comes to helping you make the world safer, it is just as much our mission to provide you with the technology to handle your toughest cases. We recently launched (and may I add Cellebrite is the only vendor in the industry to have this) a new physical extraction method called Smart ADB.

This enables a generic forensically sound decrypted physical extraction from hundreds and possibly thousands of unlocked Android devices! Read more about it here ( https://media.cellebrite.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/UFED7.5andAD7.0_ReleaseNotes.pdf)

We were also busy developing the world’s only lock-bypassing decrypted physical extraction capability, called EDL, for Qualcomm Android devices! Read more about that here too: https://media.cellebrite.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/UFED7.1_ReleaseNotes.pdf

As industry leaders, we understand the longstanding challenges you face. And as I said, it is our mission to provide you with the technology to handle your toughest cases.

So, for a sneak peek of what’s coming up, and in case you missed our webinar (which you gain access to from here: http://go.cellebrite.com/Virtual_Analyzer_SQLite_Wizard_Webinar) we have a unique emulation capability, Virtual Analyzer, that will provide access to data from thousands unsupported applications.


We are so proud to have partnered with organizations including the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMC), Project Vic, CAID, Freeland, and Exodus road, to combat major crimes such as human and animal trafficking and crimes against children.

We developed new AI algorithms for text, image, and video in Cellebrite Pathfinder that helps pinpoint evidence, and automates the matching of unknown images and text. Analytics also provides an extensive and powerful hash database including direct access to media and data used to combat child sexual exploitation and trafficking from Project VIC and the Child Abuse Image Database (CAID).  


It’s not just about having the right technology, it’s what you do with it that counts, and staying up to date with the latest and greatest. And when it comes to digital forensics, our global team of elite trainers has trained more than 3900 unique students in various digital forensic courses through our Cellebrite Academy.

Well, those are some of our highlights in a nutshell. Please take a minute and vote for Cellebrite to win in the Forensic 4:cast Awards.
