MSAB & Berla Provides A Game Changing Solution for Device & Vehicle Forensics
Two Global Industry Leaders Align to Offer Investigators Unparalleled Capabilities for Data Extraction
MSAB, a global leader in forensic technology for mobile device examination, and Berla, the global leader in automotive digital forensics and cyber security, announced today a strategic partnership that will afford users a game changing solution to access and analyze data from both vehicles systems and mobile devices.
The joint effort will support a combined offering of Berla’s vehicle forensics kit, iVe and MSAB’s XAMN analytical software that will enable investigators to discover the data left behind in vehicles and solve more crimes.
“As the Internet of Things and automotive technology continue to evolve rapidly it is essential that investigators have tools that can keep pace with the global marketplace while maintaining an edge in digital forensics,” said Joel Bollö, CEO of MSAB. “By combining MSAB’s and Berla’s offerings and expertise we will provide customers with a truly compelling and comprehensive platform to rapidly, and effectively access a wider range of data in a manner never done before.”
“Our decision to partner with MSAB in the digital forensics and cyber security market was obvious. Our missions are aligned and we are committed to supporting investigators worldwide by providing them with cutting edge technologies to solve a myriad of crimes. MSAB is a great company that continues to innovate and discover the road ahead. We are thrilled to begin this journey with MSAB,” said Ben LeMere, CEO of Berla.
Berla’s iVe kit, is a vehicle system forensic tool that supports vehicles throughout the world. iVe provides forensic examiners and investigators a means to quickly and intuitively acquire and analyze data from vehicle systems.
Vehicle systems store a vast amount of data such as recent destinations, favorite locations, call logs, contact lists, SMS messages, emails, pictures, videos, social media feeds, and the navigation history of everywhere the vehicle has been. Many systems record events such as when and where a vehicle’s lights are turned on, which doors are opened and closed at specific locations, and even record audio from inside the vehicle.
The XAMN family of software is a suite of analysis tools designed primarily for investigators to help them to work more efficiently. Once mobile data has been recovered using the XRY suite of tools, it is usually the investigator’s responsibility to locate and analyze the critical information. The XAMN suite of analysis tools helps to quickly identify that critical information, whether to see the big picture or identify precise details in a huge dataset of mobile evidence.
XAMN tools are simple to use and therefor minimize the requirement for infrastructure and training. Every investigator can directly take advantage of the power of XAMN to solve crimes faster, resulting in financial savings and improved efficiency and crime detection for their organization.
Berla and MSAB look forward to providing their capabilities to investigators throughout the world for years to come.
