PROVIDENCE, R.I., July 28, 2009 — ForensicSoft, a growing provider of digital forensic software and services, is proud to announce the formal approval and selection of its products by the Nottinghamshire Police, of Nottinghamshire, England. ForensicSoft's products, which increase the speed and effectiveness of digital forensic investigations, are rapidly gaining popularity among digital forensic and security professionals worldwide. "Nottinghamshire Police has one of England's most advanced computer forensics law enforcement programs and we are proud to have them select ForensicSoft for use within their cyber crime program," said John DiPippo, ForensicSoft's President. This selection by Nottinghamshire Police marks the first law enforcement agency in England to embrace the latest digital forensic technology from ForensicSoft.
ForensicSoft's SAFE product is the world's first write-blocked Windows forensic boot environment. SAFE (System Acquisition Forensic Environment) is an ideal software tool for first responders and other computer forensic professionals seeking a quick, easy, forensically sound Windows-based operating system from which to conduct digital forensic investigations. Employing ForensicSoft's proprietary SAFE Block technology to block all disks at the physical level, SAFE is the only Windows-based boot environment to ensure a forensically sound preview, exploration and capture of the digital evidence. SAFE employs Microsoft Windows PE (a fully licensed copy is included) and is capable of running your favorite Windows-based forensic tools such as FTK, EnCase, X-Ways, and many more. With SAFE's use of Windows, and the rapid and consistent availability of Windows-based device drivers, the forensic market has been long awaiting such a product.
"Like most Law Enforcement Digital Forensics Units, we are constantly looking for ways to streamline our procedures without sacrificing quality of work. SAFE has allowed us to do exactly that, and provides our unit with a great deal of flexibility by offering an easy-to-use and forensically sound platform to run our preferred tools from," said Chris Tappin of Nottinghamshire Police. One of the key advantages of the ForensicSoft product is the speed at which it captures digital evidence as compared to alternative hardware solutions. "Whilst we still image straightforward cases with hardware write blockers, we are seeing more and more devices with storage that is difficult or impossible to access. I can see our use of SAFE increase in correlation with the increase in netbook and sub-notebook submissions. SAFE allows us to avoid time-consuming disassembly whilst continuing to use our preferred imaging and analysis software. Benefits obviously vary case by case, but on the most troublesome hardware SAFE could save us several hours with a screwdriver."
