LINDON, Utah—(BUSINESS WIRE)—AccessData Group today announced that its Forensic Toolkit® (FTK) product, which is recognized around the world as a leading digital forensic investigation solution, was named Best Computer Forensic Solution at the 2015 SC Awards U.S.
“This prestigious award, which was based on the votes of experts in the field of information security, is an important third-party validation of the development work that has gone into FTK,” said Keith James, executive vice president of worldwide sales and marketing for AccessData Group. “FTK’s interoperability with all AccessData’s solutions allows for the aggregation of massive data sets from different sources, such as computer hard drives and mobile devices. This unique capability allows investigators to identify key evidence efficiently and increase investigative accuracy like no other solution on the market.”
Each year the SC Awards honor the professionals, companies and products that help fend off the myriad security threats confronted in today’s corporate world. This year’s awards ceremony was held on April 21, 2015 at the InterContinental San Francisco.
In its recognition of FTK with the 2015 SC Award for Best Computer Forensic Solution, the judges noted that FTK is “a workhorse” that has “always provided the power and speed that makes processing large cases practical.” The presenters also observed that FTK “provides the most comprehensive processing at speeds that are unmatched by other solutions.”
FTK is a court-cited digital investigations platform built for fast processing, stability and ease of use, while handling massive data sets. It provides comprehensive processing and indexing up front, so filtering and searching is faster than with any other product. This means users can “zero-in” on the relevant evidence quickly and conduct their analysis faster. Furthermore, because of its flexible architecture, FTK can be configured for distributed processing, incorporating Web-based case management and collaborative analysis.
FTK is fully integrated with AccessData’s mobile and eDiscovery solutions. AccessData also offers a suite of digital forensics products for other uses, such as on-site collection for first responders (nFIELD and AD Triage), mobile device analysis (MPE+), enterprise security investigations (AD Enterprise) and centralized collaborative analysis solutions (AD Lab).
