I really like how easy it was to get the logical and physical acquisition. It’s like “one stop shopping.” No need for a passcode either. Other tools require a passcode or jailbreak to get the logical.

The 7 Simple Collection Steps of MPE+ nFIELD

Chances are mobile devices containing Chinese-manufactured chipsets are already part of your forensic investigation. Chances are…
… you haven’t being able to process them. Now you can.

MPE+ Velocitor is an add-on hardware tool that integrates seamlessly with MPE+ to unleash the power of physical and logical extraction from 95% of Chinese mobile devices.  The MPE+ Velocitor appliance enables MPE+ to support more Chinese devices than any other mobile forensics tool

The manufacture, export and purchase of cheap, generic, phones and tablets are becoming more and more common these days. In 2011 alone, over 800 million mobile devices and close to 40,000 models were manufactured in China. In 2012, more than half of those were exported to world markets, comprising more than 30% of the global cell phone market. As result, these devices are becoming one of the most prominent sources of forensic evidence.

MPE+ Velocitor assists mobile forensics labs with critical examinations involving these devices. In many cases a mobile device may look like a mainstream smart device, but it is actually a cloned or counterfeit phone containing Chinese components. In those instances, most mobile forensics solutions fall short, making it impossible to process critical data.  MPE+ Velocitor enables full flash data extraction from these devices, exposing critical evidence quickly and effectively, without the need for a third-party tool or software.
