[ZDNet] Dell takes digital forensics mobile

post #1 of 5

Dell on Thursday launched another installment of its digital forensics bundle so law enforcement can collect data faster from crime scenes.

The company took its digital forensic bundle—Spektor Forensic Intelligence software from Evidence Talks and rugged hardware—and extended it to mobile devices. The goal: Examine data at a crime scene and collect data on the fly from various storage devices.

Crime scenes are increasingly becoming an IT problem since evidence can reside on PCs, laptops, mobile phones, USB sticks, GPS devices and other memory devices. Dell’s goal is to allow for on-site investigation of digital evidence and analyze data with one technology bundle.

Is mobile really needed though? Why not just remove hard drive take it back and do forensics on it at the lab no?

Because when it comes down to things, it's all about time. If you do things faster and more efficient, you have more time to do other things.

Say for example, remove the HDD. Have to take it back to the Lab, that takes time. If you can do it on the scene, you don't have to waste time taking it back to the lab.

As true as that might be, i think i would rather sit back and focus on scanning through the hdd in a controlled environment, rather than in the field, where things may be rushed, or you may be distracted.
