New MOBILedit 5.0 With Revolutionary Live Updates System Released

The new MOBILedit Forensic Express 5.0, the all-in-one mobile device examination tool, comes with a revolutionary feature - Live Updates of the app analyzer engine. It allows for quick response to new apps, their updates, new data structures and encryption. You can get the necessary updates of this forensic tool in hours or days instead of weeks or months. You no longer need to analyze app databases manually, the MOBILedit team does it for you...

Live Updates
A mobile phone is a digital mirror of a user's life, and when being investigated it is a vital source of digital evidence. It is no secret that phone forensics in today's world is mostly about analyzing data from apps. Billions of people around the world use apps daily for everything from messaging, to sharing, dating, cooking, traveling, business and more. It has never been more important than now for forensic professionals to be fully equipped and ready to analyze a huge number of apps at a moment's notice. But new apps are being released at an incredible rate, and existing apps are being updated just as often. Last but not least - apps bring stronger encryption with every update and users love it. All these factors are working against us as forensic professionals.



The MOBILedit team is responding to this situation by introducing a live updates system in their new MOBILedit Forensic Express 5.0. It allows for rapid response to new apps, their updates, new data structures and encryption. It means you can get an update of the forensic solution immediately after the investigated app is updated by the developer, and, no more waiting for weeks or months for the next update of your other forensic tools or complicated manual analysis of SQLite databases. Compelson even takes it a step further to meet their users' needs - if you need to analyze an app which is not yet supported, you can contact the MOBILedit team to request support for the specific app, and as soon as it is finished you can download its analyzer through updates. This feature and on-demand support coverage is available to every MOBILedit user.

There are five possible components to be updated:
• Live update component for app analysis
• The engine itself
• App downgrade APKs
• Photo recognizer - machine learning module
• Report templates with different languages

It works as updates come over the internet when the PC is connected, or, off-line updates are downloaded separately for those isolated PCs.



Photo Recognizer
Use artificial intelligence to find the evidence and speed up your work. This state-of-the art module is equipped with the latest machine learning technology and is designed to rapidly identify photos of what an investigator is searching for. Simply specify a folder of photos, choose items you are searching for, such as weapons, drugs, nudity, currency and documents.

Report customizations and localizations
Reports and exports are now under the user’s control. You can customize reports to your own style or translate them to your language, so you can meet the criteria defined by the law. Just edit a template table once and change texts in all your future reports, namely PDF, HTML, Excel. We will include verified translations with the installation.

1. Re: Live Updates are Amazing

I have been involved in the digital forensic field with law enforcement and now as a private company for 10 years. It seems to be a standard that companies will make 1-3 releases a year. This has been the standard.

The Live Updates is a very interesting feature that I believe will set the new standard. I noticed the feature last week when I did an update. Now app updates are pushed out as soon as they are completed instead of waiting for the major updates a couple times a year. I can even request a new app to be added to the support list. Pretty cool stuff.

I have been a MOBILedit customer with my local PD and now with my private company for 8 years. I have always been impressed with their company's responsive service and willingness to help solve my problems. I think you all hit another home run.
