MSAB has augmented its digital forensic offering to include the world’s fastest computer forensic imaging technology and rapid triage of Windows, Mac and Linux computers, as developed by Detego.

Dave Kirk, Founder and CEO of Detego, says the following of the partnership; “Detego delivers innovation and provides clients with leading digital forensic solutions across the globe. Detego also has two key patented, game changing technologies that are beneficial to all digital forensic investigators, but particularly those in front- line and first responder scenarios or kiosk environments. This strategic relationship enables MSAB to offer a full suite of tools for data extraction and analysis, completing its offering and increasing the capability for MSAB’s extensive list of global customers.”

“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.” 

Detego originally developed its leading solution to rapidly acquire and act upon evidence from computer platforms, offering rapid on-scene digital forensics with automated triage. Detego’s technology is already used widely by high-profile military and law enforcement organizations. MSAB’s flagship product, XRY-KTE, has become the number one frontline solution for operational law enforcement users worldwide, who deal with large volumes of mobile devices on a regular basis. 

“Our decision to partner with MSAB in the global 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.

That’s what we at Detego are passionate about and that’s why this partnership will have a positive impact on the global digital forensics industry.” 

The MSAB XAMN software is a suite of analysis tools designed primarily to allow investigators to 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 from a world-leading solution.
