MSAB and Detego join forces in digital forensics partnership

Digital Forensic Industry Leaders Align to Offer New Capabilities for Data Extraction:


MSAB, a global leader in forensic technology for mobile device investigations, and Detego the go-to toolset provider for computer forensic triage are joining forces to supercharge our tailor-made digital forensics solutions for rapid frontline use.


The MSAB flagship product XRY-KTE has become the number one frontline triage solution for operational law enforcement users worldwide, who deal with large volumes of mobile devices on a regular basis. Similarly, Detego has developed a leading solution to rapidly acquire and act on evidence from computer platforms. Detego offers rapid on-scene digital forensics with automated triage, and both companies’ products are used by several high-profile customers globally.


Today, MSAB and Detego are proud to announce the strategic partnership that will provide users a one stop solution to acquire data for both mobile and computer analysis. It will offer users a complete end to end suite of modular digital forensics tools.


“As technology continues 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 Detego’s offerings and expertise we will provide customers with a truly compelling and comprehensive set of options to rapidly, and effectively access a wider range of data artefacts from even more electronic devices.”


“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 frontline digital forensic solutions. We are privileged to begin this journey with MSAB,” says John-Paul Backwell, Managing Director of Detego.


As the traditional division between computers and mobile devices begins to blur, it is natural to want to bring together two specialist tools that are recognized leaders in their field. By combining forces, it will offer a world leading solution to the benefit of all customers and bring the output together into the secure digital evidence container XRY file format.

The MSAB XAMN software is a suite of analysis tools designed primarily to allow investigators work more efficiently. Once digital data has been recovered using the XRY & Detego tools, the XAMN analysis tools will help to quickly identify critical information, whether this means seeing the big picture or rapidly identifying precise details in a huge dataset of digital evidence.


Both tools are easy to use and will therefore make an instant difference for customers investing in the combined solution. Users can directly take advantage of the power of MSAB and Detego to solve crimes faster, resulting in improved efficiency and detection for their organizations.


Detego and MSAB look forward to providing their capabilities to investigators throughout the world, for years to come.
