Detego Global, creators of the award-winning Unified Digital Forensics Platform, today announced its Media Acquisition tool has been selected as a finalist in the “Best Computer Forensic Solution” category for the 26th annual SC Awards. Considered to be the most prestigious awards program in cybersecurity, SC Awards recognise the most innovative technologies and people driving advancements across the industry.
After an extensive judging process carried out by a world-class panel of industry leaders from the financial services, consulting, healthcare and manufacturing sectors, the company’s Media Acquisition tool was picked as one of the five finalists for this coveted award.
This selection marks Detego Global’s second award nomination in 2023 and the fourth received by the brand in the last two years. Detego Global’s patented Ballistic Imager tool, which delivers record-setting data extraction speeds, was selected as a finalist for the same sought-after award last year. Additionally, the company’s “Field Triage” and “Analyse” tools reached the finalist list for the UK Security and Policing Innovation Awards in 2022 and 2023.
Forming part of the acclaimed Unified Digital Forensics Platform that’s trusted by investigators in the military, law enforcement and corporate sectors to combat serious crimes, including fraud, child abuse, terrorism and human trafficking, Media Acquisition is renowned for its ability to simplify the collection and analysis of vital data from multiple sources, simultaneously.
Designed to address the growing need for faster, more in-depth analytics and greater mobility to reduce growing backlogs in the digital investigations space, Media Acquisition facilitates on-the-spot decision-making by providing investigators with live previews of the data being captured as well as visual alerts through the company’s globally patented red-amber-green alert system for accelerated case resolution.
Created to tackle the increasing demand for swift, deep analytics and on-scene agility, Media Acquisition empowers investigators with real-time insights for accelerated decisions. Investigators can preview live data captures and receive instant visual alerts on items of interest through a globally patented red-amber-green visual alert system – allowing them to make rapid on-site assessments, triage evidence, and reduce dependence on specialist teams and resources.
Highly portable and easily deployable in the frontlines as well as labs, the tool comes with guided workflows, powerful data carving features, intelligent automation and built-in analytics, enabling even novices to conduct thorough, forensically sound investigations in any setting.
“We are thrilled once again to be selected as a finalist for the prestigious SC Awards,” said Andy Lister, Managing Director at Detego Global. “Being recognised among the cybersecurity industry’s most innovative companies further exemplifies our commitment to transforming the digital investigations space with products that serve our customers and make communities safer.”
According to the SC Media Editorial Director at CyberRisk Alliance, Tom Spring, the technologies and strategies embodied by the award entrants captured the incredible innovation of the cybersecurity sector this year. He says, “This year’s list of finalists reflects both the robustness and agility of solutions used by network defenders to protect assets within an always shifting threat landscape”.
Winners will be announced during the SC Awards week, scheduled to begin on August 21 2023. The coverage will also include “Winner’s Circle” roundtables, candid on-camera interviews between the SC Media team and award recipients, and insights into winner profiles.
