PETAH TIKVA, Israel, Oct. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cellebrite, the leading developer and provider of mobile data forensic solutions, today announced the launch of the UFED 4PC and UFED TK. Together with the UFED Touch, UFED 4PC and UFED TK constitute the first and only complete series of mobile forensic solutions across dedicated single purpose and general purpose PC-based hardware platforms to accommodate the broadest range of lab and field use cases.
UFED 4PC is designed for customers who require a convenient, cost-effective way to extract and analyze mobile forensic data on a single PC of their choosing. UFED TK supports users who seek to extract and analyze mobile forensic data on a pre-configured PC hardware platform. UFED 4PC may be installed on any Windows®-based PC, while UFED TK features the UFED 4PC software pre-installed and configured on a rugged PC hardware platform available directly from Cellebrite.
UFED 4PC and UFED TK enable customers to run the entire suite of UFED Series applications (UFED Phone Detective, UFED 4PC, UFED Physical Analyzer / Logical Analyzer and UFED Link Analysis) on the same hardware. As a result, customers can now perform mobile device identification, extraction, decoding, analysis and reporting in a unified, general purpose hardware environment. The two new additions to UFED Series join Cellebrite's flagship UFED Touch, which supports users who require extraction from a dedicated single purpose device.
"Having tested UFED 4PC on more than 50 devices over the past four weeks, we're impressed by the software's speed, stability and efficiency," said Sergeant Tom Nelson, a digital forensics specialist with the Deschutes County (Oregon) Sheriff's Office. "We have found it to be an excellent complement to the UFED Touch devices already deployed in our lab, and believe that it would be just as effective deployed in the field as would the UFED Touch."
"The launch of the UFED 4PC and UFED TK extends the reach of our industry standard technology across multiple platforms," said Ron Serber, Cellebrite Corporate co-CEO. "This means customers have the best possible flexibility in choosing a mobile forensic solution in the right form factor to meet their investigative needs, and that UFED classic customers have multiple options to migrate to our next-generation mobile forensic solutions. UFED Touch, UFED 4PC and UFED TK each have strengths to bring to the lab or the field depending on customer need, but regardless of which platform they choose, customers will have access to the most robust extraction, decoding, and analysis capabilities of any solution available in the market today."
Cellebrite's UFED Series assists legally authorized investigative bodies such as law enforcement officials, military and intelligence organizations, corporate security officers and e-discovery professionals working on criminal or civil investigations. The UFED 4PC and UFED TK enable these professionals to standardize on a seamless mobile forensic process using a single platform, helping them meet the growing demand for fast, effective and forensically sound mobile investigations.
Based on UFED technology which government and private sector personnel have trusted since 2007, the UFED 4PC and UFED TK solutions incorporate the most comprehensive extraction and decoding support for the widest range of devices. As with the UFED Touch, logical and physical extraction methods support more than 10,800 profiles for mobile devices including BlackBerry®, iOS, Android operating systems and smartphones from Samsung, Motorola, Microsoft, Palm, and Nokia.
