Computer Forensics Software Solutions to Ease the Burden on Digital Investigations Labs Everywhere
AccessData® enables computer forensics labs of all sizes, facing an array of challenges, to work more effectively. A single-person lab can radically speed up the processing of cases with the four-worker distributed processing available with FTK®. However, labs handling massive data sets, utilizing a distributed workforce, or looking to collaborate with attorneys, HR personnel or other non-forensic parties can step up to AccessData Lab. AD Lab adds powerful and intuitive web-based review functionality, expanded distributed processing capabilities with a centralized processing farm, and a centralized database infrastructure. This allows collaborative analysis among multiple forensic examiners, real-time task and case management, and secure, web-based collaboration with parties outside the lab. Regardless of the size, scope or mission of your computer forensics lab, AccessData has a solution that will meet your needs.
