UNION CITY, Calif.--() Inc., a software company focusing on e-discovery, digital forensics, and law enforcement technologies, today announced the availability of MacForensicsLab version 2.5.

MacForensicsLab is the most powerful and cost-effective forensic tool on the market.

MacForensicsLab is the first all-in-one, easy-to-use forensics software suite for Mac OS X. To meet the demands of modern law enforcement and digital forensic investigators, the new Mac OS X version 2.5 includes a beta version for Linux and a Windows beta subversion. While SubRosaSoft advocates using Macintosh as your primary tools for forensics investigation, the inclusion of Linux and Windows versions will give investigator the much needed flexibility in a diversified environment. All three versions use the same UI design, enabling an investigator to adapt to another OS quickly. The Mac OS X version is available immediately whilst the other two are available only to existing licensed users in a mature beta form.

The new version also sports many user interface enhancements, making MacForensicsLab even more user friendly. The windows are laid out in a more logical fashion thanks to the input of many forensics investigators. New features such as email alerts to contact the user or even cell phone when a time intensive operation has completed, have been included.

Version 2.5 also includes better performance with updated engines in most operations. Functions that were processor intensive have been sped up often by many times their previous speed. Along with code optimization, operations such as searching and analyzing the suspects drives are not only a lot quicker, but further enhanced to include more keywords, more flexibility, and more power. More options when performing an acquisition also meant a field investigator can image a suspect drive a lot faster.

SubRosaSoft has greatly enhanced the to include more than a hundred hints and tips on how to assist e-discovery, digital forensics, and law enforcement professionals.

Destined to be a standard in cross-platform computer forensics investigation, MacForensicsLab includes powerful features that give a user excellent flexibility and control in data analysis, evidence retrieval, and reporting:

  • Extremely fast and verifiable media acquisition and data recovery.
  • Multiple operations/tasks can be done at the same time (multi threaded).
  • Perfect acquisition of devices retaining every detail of your suspect's media.
  • The most powerful data recovery engine on the market increases the chance of recovering data, even when the drive is damaged.
  • Perform forensic acquisition and analysis on drives from Mac, MS Windows, Linux, and other operating systems.
  • Highly detailed logs to provide the investigator with as much information as possible when reporting.
  • The unique Skin Tone Analyzer and fast traversal with file filtering means you can zero in on illegal pornography faster -- helping to protect our children from predators.
